Overlooking panoramic views of iconic Kukusan Island, distinctive guests gathered in the hotel’s dramatic 11th floor lobby on June 1st to commemorate a milestone in the building progress of Komodo’s first and only 5-star hotel. 
The morning ceremony began at 10:00 with a traditional prayer to give thanks to everyone at AYANA Hotel Group. Each member of the team has contributed so much time and knowledge to the project, ensuring that AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach will be the region’s top island destination for holiday, business, and private events.
Following the blessing, a dove release was held to symbolize the purity of the resort’s spectacular setting. The auspicious dove release was led by the project owners and team. At 10:45, AYANA’s owner officiated the topping-off ceremony, which is a builder’s rite, traditionally held when the last beam (or its equivalent) is placed atop a structure during its construction.
Since breaking ground in 2017, the resort has completed several exciting milestones including the Top Deck, AYANA’s thrillingly beautiful private event venue. The resort’s main infinity edge swimming pool beckons for a refreshing dip with unobstructed views of the iconic Kukusan Island as well as AYANA’s eye-catching wooden jetty, the resort’s hotspot for over-the-water dining, and home base for AYANA Lako di’a, a custom-made phinisi sailing yacht that caters to guests and private charters.
