FLORES ISLAND – East Indonesia is rising in fame as one of the world’s most pristine undiscovered spots. As a UNESCO world heritage site, Komodo National Park is a myriad of national treasures. It’s a location where the clarity of the ocean coupled with vast striking landscapes will truly take your breath away.
Just a short sail from Komodo National Park, and only one-hour flight from Bali, Flores Island will soon be home to the island’s first five-star luxury resort. From September 15, AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach will be treating guests to the area’s finest accommodation with top-shelf culinary options, and superior service standards.

Kukusan Island and volcanic peaks present an iconic backdrop, while sunset time transforms the sky into a golden masterpiece.
Wedding locations include the resort’s Naga Pier (meaning Dragon Pier), which presents a dedicated aisle weaving above striking crystal clear waters. Brides and grooms who long to say ‘I do!’ with sand on their soles can select an intimate ceremony on the white shores of the resort’s private Waecicu Beach, or if cool air-conditioning coupled with an outdoor option is more fitting, couples have the pleasure of the aptly named Kukusan Terrace.
