It’s no secret that island hopping is best done by boat. Ready to sail through the azure waters of the Komodo Island this September 2018, the new AYANA Lako di’a is an elegant storybook phinisi with 9 luxurious bedrooms, glamorous dining area, and expansive decks. The name comes from the island’s local dialect which translated to ‘safe journey’. This is a new luxury charter by Ayana Komodo Resort.
AYANA Hotels, an independently owned hospitality brand in Asia, is opening the first five-star resort on Indonesia’s Flores Island with AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach, located one hour by plane from Bali. Neighboring the luxury resort is Komodo National Park, home of the Komodo dragon.
For one, it’s said to be the largest Phinisi to have been built from scratch. And that’s not just describing its length (54m) nor height (39m, including sails). It houses nine ensuite cabins, a large deck at the bow that’s perfect for sunbathing and catching the last rays of the sun, along with cosy air-conditioned dining and living areas.
AYANA Lako di’a is designed to enhance memorable leisure and business holiday. The 2, 3 or 5 nights’ cruise onboard will bring guests to the island most coveted spots, where they can explore the life under the sea and eat beneath the starts on a private beach.
For a special occasion, the 54-meter traditional phinisi sailing ship can carter up to 70 guests. Imagine a stylish wedding ceremony and reception above the sea, or a trendy business gathering surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty.
Of course, those who prefer to stay on land have the option of putting up at Ayana Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach. The hotel comprises 192 guest rooms and 13 suites, with each boasting sunset views, and panoramic snapshots of the ocean.
The islands of Komodo, Flores, and Rinca are special habitats that protect Indonesia’s famous Komodo Dragons, which are notable as the largest land reptile in the world. Visitors from Ayana guests are guided by professional rangers and have ample opportunity to take photos of the dragons in their natural habitats. AYANA’s memorable tour provides speed boat access to Komodo or Rinca Islands, which is a one-hour trip from the resort.
