Published 30 November 2017   

Already famed in Bali and Jakarta for world-class hospitality, exceptional hotel design, superior cuisine and unparalleled service standards, AYANA is set to launch the first and only five-star resort on the exquisite Labuan Bajo, Waecicu Beach in summer 2018. The 12 suites and 189 premium guest rooms are inspired by light, comfort and open living, with each contemporary room featuring a flawless ocean view with large windows to capture the golden glows of tropical sunsets setting behind the distinctive Kukusan Island.

The unconventional design will allow guests to check-in from the 11th floor lobby, and access their room by descending towards the sandy shores. The resort will also feature a rooftop wedding and function suite accommodating around 200 guests, with a splendid ocean view terrace. Restaurants and bars will include an all-day dining venue serving relaxed Asian cuisine and International food, a rooftop bar serving sunset light bites, Kisik seafood barbeque restaurant and HonZEN Japanese restaurant.

Alongside a private white sand beach, there will be two main swimming pools and one children’s pool. The Resort Spa will offer a selection of signature treatments across four single treatment rooms and one double. There will also be a gym and kid’s club. In keeping with AYANA tradition, the service will be superlative. Local and Balinese hospitality will be intertwined to offer standards like no other on the Island.

“Our team is the secret to our success,” explains Clive Edwards, General Manager of AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI, The Villas at AYANA Resort, BALI and RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA. “It is with enthusiasm and pride that I can confidently say we are one of the most successful and sought after hotels on the island of Bali. Of course, our range of products and services is inspired by the purpose of fulfilling guest needs, but I also believe that it is the care and service from our team members that takes AYANA hospitality the extra mile. Our passion for people, and our philosophy for understanding our guests, will be injected into this latest property, AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach. We are excited about introducing the newest member of our resort family to the community, and look forward to launching the first premium 5-star resort in Flores.”

In addition to the new resort, and in making full use of the extensive private pier, AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach will also be launching a 54 meter long and 11 meter wide, 9-bedroom phinisi ship. The luxurious ship will take guests, either by full charter or bookable by bedroom, around the island for short explorations of approximately 2 or 3-nights per trip.

The ship will also make a distinguished wedding venue. Named AYANA Lako di’a, meaning “Safe Journey” in the local vernacular, it will be of the finest design with lounge and dive decks to suit the mood. Guests can island hop or participate in world-famous aqua activities including diving, snorkeling and trawling via AYANA Lako di’a, or join a daytrip on the Hotel’s catamaran or power boat.
