On Flores, a lush Indonesian island that is home to white sand beaches, secluded bays and a skyline shaped by volcanoes, the Plataran Komodo Beach Resort is a beautiful eight-villa retreat on Waecicu Beach. Reached by a 10-minute boat road ride from the island’s capital, Labuan Bajo, this secluded spot is made up of just eight villas, all of which are made from natural materials and have private verandas, and are set in tropical gardens. The interiors are simple and elegant, with wood-paneled walls and crisp white beds. Some bathrooms feature traditional carved-stone tubs. Patio Xanadu serves traditional Indonesian dishes alfresco, as well as seafood, international cuisine and barbecue, and can arrange candlelit dinners on the beach. The hotel has a fleet of traditional wooden sailboats and can arrange tours to explore the local marine life.
In the Area
Climb aboard one of the resort’s little sailboats, which are equipped with snorkeling gear, and explore the colorful marine life in the coral reefs. Take a trip to Rinca Island, where your guide will lead you to find the Komodo dragon, lizards so big they occasionally chow down on water buffalo. The resort’s restaurant offers a peaceful, romantic setting, but if you crave a bit of a buzz, a speed boat can whizz you over to the bustling tourist village of Labuan Bajo, where sushi at the Happy Banana and coffee from the hip and quirky Cafe.In.Hit come highly recommended.
How to Get There
Amazing private villas right on the beach. Fall asleep under the stars and with the sounds of the sea. As soon as you arrive you feel like royalty. The staff will take care of all your needs and are always ready to assist. Upon arriving I got a complimentary massage which made me relaxed straight away after the journey there. The beach is clean and they offer free activities such as snorkeling,paddleboard and kayaking. The food was perfect and they pay attention to the small details. If you want something that is not on the menu that is not on the menu the chefs will do their best to please you. Overall I really recommend this resort to tourists looking for a luxurious stay around the Komodo island
I choose this property because of the limited number of villas which means i could have my peace and quite moment. I love the homey ambiance, the genuinely kind staff which are mostly from Flores and attention to details with my preference. There are lots of spots where i could enjoy the me time with sea breeze. Such a heaven.
Quiet Places, Exotic Hotel, Private beach and pier, Spacious and Clean Room, the double AC in the room make you comfortable in the hot day, Very Friendly and polite hotel staff, Delicious food (recommended Ramayana Prawn). Even this hotel gives what you need to prepared for your adventure in some island.
I would like to say the Hotel price is cheap compared to what you experience.
Plataran Komodo, Thank You for the enjoyable time and also the Birthday Cake...
Large spacious clean room with home made cookies at night. Only people there first couple of nights which was bliss having their sole attention. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and great massages. Highly recommend.
Idyllic and private, with incredible attention to detail. The staff were lovely and attention was personalized. Highlights were the delicious juices and afternoon tea! Perfect place to relax and enjoy the beachfront (although the actual swimming from the beach is not especially easy). Also amazing snorkeling and sunset-watching! A great launching pad for Komodo island and others. Would recommend to everyone.
