A new gem has emerged on the pearlescent shores of Indonesia. TA’AKTANA, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Labuan Bajo, has officially opened its doors, inviting guests to immerse themselves in the rich culture and breathtaking seascapes of Labuan Bajo. This stunning waterfront property is the first Marriott International resort in Labuan Bajo and The Luxury Collection’s second property in Indonesia. TA’AKTANA promises an idyllic escape surrounded by wild forests and glimmering coasts of the Flores Sea. 

Strategically located in the heart of Labuan Bajo, this resort serves as near stop to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Komodo National Park. With its near proximity to cultural treasures like Mirror Stone Cave, Rumah Tenun, and Melo Village, TA’AKTANA makes the perfect vacation destination. The hotel’s close distances to the Komodo International Airport, with a convenient 10-minute drive to the resort, provides seamless connectivity with easy access for discerning travellers.

Spanning 16 hectares and designed by ANP Interiors, TA’AKTANA features 70 guest rooms, including 25 villas and 45 suites, all boasting outdoor balconies with sweeping sunset views. Seven overwater villas offer unrivalled luxury and tranquillity, celebrating the Indonesian Sea Nomads’ way of life with curved interiors, handcrafted wood finishings, rich textures, and airy layouts. Guests staying in a villa enjoy a dedicated 24-hour butler, ensuring every aspect of their stay is perfectly tailored.

TA’AKTANA invites guests to explore Labuan Bajo’s rich epicurean traditions with three distinctive restaurants, a lounge, and a bar. Leros, the all-day dining restaurant, serves a curated menu influenced by Indonesia’s vast archipelago. Umasa offers an authentic Indonesian culinary experience, served family-style with locally sourced ingredients. Taba, a Robata grill, specialises in archipelago-sourced ingredients prepared with Japanese techniques. Nera Lounge enchants with captivating sunset views, tapas, and an array of beverages, including crafted cocktails, coffee, and tea.

With six private treatment rooms, a steam room, plunge pool, and more, the spa invites guests to rejuvenate and reconnect with nature. TA’AKTANA is also poised to host all occasions, from business meetings with two spaces to choose from, to weddings with an oceanfront chapel.

The name “TA’AKTANA,” meaning green land, is derived from the Manggarai language of Flores island and honours the Lingko Field, distinctive web-shaped rice fields that are a cherished part of traditional Manggarai culture. True to its roots, the hotel embodies the destination’s history, culture, and indigenous traditions, offering guests unique and authentic experiences.
