3 Unique Cruise Experiences at AYANA Komodo Resort You Have to Try!

November 3, 2018 Resort News No Comments Email Email

Just a 90-minute flight away from Bali lies the exquisite Labuan Bajo, Flores in East-Indonesia. Characterised by its white beaches and pristine waters, Labuan Bajo is home to one of the most beautiful beaches in Indonesia and most recently, its first and only five-star resort – AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach. 

An essential part of any trip to Labuan Bajo is exploring the island’s crystal-clear waters, and AYANA Komodo Resort offers an array of memorable experiences for you to get up close and personal with its marine life. Besides the array of water activities it offers, from stand-up paddle boarding to snorkeling and fishing, the resort has three unique cruise experiences that guarantee unparalleled adventures at sea.

  1. Live like royalty in the world’s largest Phinisi ship

On 2nd October, the world’s largest specially-built Phinisi cruise ship, Lako Di’a – meaning “Safe Journey” in the local language – began gracing the glistening waters of Komodo Island. The nine-bedroom luxury Phinisi is home to 5-star luxury cabins, full dining options and spa treatments that hail a new standard of travel as you discover the islands of Flores and its best dive sites.

Guests can expect the finest of AYANA hospitality, with an on-board Cruise Director who will go beyond managing your welfare and comfort to ensuring a once-in-a-lifetime guest experience with a full suite of personalised services.

Lako Di’a is also available as a wedding destination, making for one of the most elegant and unique wedding venues. Say “I do” as you are surrounded by your loved ones and celebrate the momentous occasion by sailing across the beautiful waters of Labuan Bajo after.

2.       Be the first to uncover Komodo’s best kept secrets

If you are looking to go island-hopping, Lako Cama, AYANA’s speed boat, is perfect as it takes you to uninhabited islands that offer experiences unique to this nature’s paradise. Catch a glimpse of the famed Komodo dragons as you embark on an hour-long trek and enjoy the fresh air and lush greenery of the untouched island of Rinca and its surrounding waters. The island is home to almost 3,000 dragons, presenting you the rare chance to get up close and personal with these modern-day dinosaurs.

Lako Cama can also bring you to the insta-famous Padar Island. Capture special moments as you take an adventurous trek to one of its peaks where you can watch the pictureque sunset. The island is also known for its beach that boast pastel pink hues. The natural wonder is also a world-renowned snorkeling site with its waters carrying an exotic range of fish and coral that is bound to mesmerise.

3.       Get to know life under the sea

Another member of the resort’s new water fleet is the Lako Taka, a whale-shaped glass bottom boat that is built specially for you to meet the island’s marine life such as manta rays, dugongs, dolphins and the colourful reefs. For those looking to keep dry, Lako Taka is a memorable choice to revel in the view of the island’s underwater scenery in your own comfort and luxury.

There is no better classroom to learn about marine life than in a location that is home to a vibrant underwater world. AYANA’s resident marine biologist offers guided excursions for designated locations, as well as workshops and presentations for guests to learn about protecting the ocean and marine life. For the young ones, AYANA Kids’ Club will also offer a series of fun activities including weekly coral planting programmes and craft activities using recycled material. Families can also participate in beach clean-ups during their stay at the resort.

With ongoing accommodation offers ranging from a complimentary additional night’s stay to 20% discount, there is no better time to visit AYANA Komodo and experience its beauty both above and under its azure waters.
