ALILA Komodo echoes the rich local culture, taking influence from the nearby iconic thatched-roof village of Bena. Set on a steep incline on the south coast of the Indonesian island of Flores, the villas of the Alila Komodo Resort are set out in rows over stone platforms and arranged in a stepped formation to complement the contours of the land.

Located at the top-most ridge and echoing this stepped formation, the timber villas offer far-reaching views of the luscious surroundings. Running parallel and gently cradled within a small natural valley, is a five-storey hotel that hosts a landmark rooftop restaurant and yoga pavilion.

The resort is crowned by a dramatic circular pool and bar located at the summit of the central hill. Its shape, color and materials take inspiration from the striking volcanic lakes of Flores. The pool and bar present 360-degree views of the Komodo National Park, the harbour and the beach club, which is inspired by the world-famous stilted overwater Bajau villages.

With an off-grid ideology, Alila Komodo is designed to respond to the local weather, favoring natural ventilation to reduce the need for air-conditioning, therefore offering guests a sustainable yet luxurious experience.
