Ayana Hotels has welcomed the official opening of Ayana Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach, the first five-star resort to launch on the dreamy island of Flores.
The resort is an impressive sight to behold and truly marks a new beginning for tourism in East Indonesia.
The sister resort of Balinese luxury retreat Ayana Resort & Spa, Bali, Ayana Komodo Resort was built in just 14-months.
Spanning 1.4 hectares, the new resort showcases 205 bedrooms, two designer pools, children’s pool, and a handful of hospitality outlets including Rinca Restaurant, Unique Rooftop Bar, Naga Bar, Mesa Bar, and Kisik Seafood Grill.
The famous Japanese restaurant, HonZEN, will also follow on October 1st.
The resort also features a premium spa, grand ballroom and several meeting spaces.
Upon arrival, the resort’s very first guests were met with a welcome drink and canapés before resort owner, Rudy Suliawan, shared the journey of Ayana Komodo, a dream that was inspired by his daughter’s love of diving and fondness for Flores.
“Ayana Resort & Spa, Bali, and Ayana Midplaza, Jakarta, are much-loved industry leaders, with guests travelling from around the world.
“Even before joining the Ayana brand, I had heard about these incredible resorts,” shared Arroyo, who will be at the helm of Komodo’s new lifestyle destination.
