Ayana Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach Officially Opens

AYANA Hotels is proud to announce 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 renowned Balinese luxury retreat AYANA Resort and 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 1 October. The resort also features a premium spa, grand ballroom and several meeting spaces.

On 15 September, friends, travel agents, government officials, and media from across the globe came together to join the AYANA team to raise a glass to welcome the opening of the new property.

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 Mr. Suliawan’s daughter’s love of diving and fondness for Flores. The opening was warmly welcomed by tourism partners, local and government officials, including Bapak Agustinus Dula, Head of Region for West Manggarai Regency and the resort’s new General Manager, Fernando Arroyo.

AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI and AYANA Midplaza, JAKARTA are much-loved industry leaders, with guests travelling from around the world to experience what is called ‘The Touch of AYANA’. Even before joining the AYANA brand, I had heard about these incredible resorts and I am thrilled to offer guests the opportunity to experience ‘The Touch of AYANA’ at AYANA Komodo Resort,” shared Mr Arroyo, who will be at the helm of Komodo’s new lifestyle destination.

After the official ribbon cutting ceremony, guests were invited to participate in a host of water activities such as stand up paddle boarding and kayaking, as well as sailing onboard Lako Taka, the resort’s new whale-shaped glass bottom boat.

Guests were also invited to participate in the culture of Komodo while dancing to a traditional Maumere Dance – a dance promoting ‘togetherness’, as well as experiencing the time-honoured Manggarai – otherwise known as the Caci dance, which represents a ritual whip fight. Come sunset, guests gathered for an evening rich in entertainment, cocktails, and delicious cuisine.  Korean-American artist ‘Tim’ ended the official ceremony with his show-stopping famous ballads, before fireworks and Rock Bar, BALI’s resident DJ lit up the dance floor.
