WATG to design AYANA Komodo resort in Indonesia
POSTED 25 Oct 2018 . BY Andrew Manns
International design firm WATG has been selected to create the first five-star resort on Flores Island, Indonesia.

The tropical getaway, which – once complete – will take the form of the region’s infamous reptilian indigene, the Komodo dragon, will be constructed on a 3.4-acre expanse on Waecicu Beach and will feature 192 rooms and 13 suites.

On-site guest amenities will include a 420sq m spa, six restaurants, two shoreside pools, and a 500sq m pier leading to a private diving centre.

Bill Reed, vice president of architecture at WATG, said the new hotel would be a "benchmark for future development" in the area that would reflect the "relaxed aesthetic of the Komodo Islands".

WATG, which was founded in 1945, has designed 240 properties worldwide.
