Nestled along the pristine coastline of Labuan Bajo, TA'AKTANA, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa epitomizes the harmonious blend of luxury and sustainability. The first of Marriott International’s luxurious resort under the prestigious The Luxury Collection brand in the breathtaking destination of Labuan Bajo, TA’AKTANA introduces the first Sea Villas in the destination, each adorned with avant-garde facilities and ultra-luxury amenities, promising an unparalleled retreat for the discerning travellers.

With modern travelers looking to experience more slow and purposeful travel in the coming year, TA’AKTANA not only offers an invitation to explore Labuan Bajo's hidden gems such as the mesmerizing Rangko Cave (Goa Rangko), a secluded enclave with a natural blue pool near the town of Labuan Bajo, but also do their part in traveling sustainably and immersing into local culture and traditions. 

Where Luxury Meets Sustainable Hospitality

Leaders of sustainable luxury in Labuan Bajo, TA'AKTANA has a mirage of initiatives that highlights the property’s dedication to ethical and social responsibility, embodying cultural preservation, environment & human sustainability. 

From their innovative approach to waste reduction with waste kain batik fabrics repurposed into elegant table napkins and charming hair-scrunchies presented as eco-conscious souvenirs to esteemed guests, to their participation in Beach Cleaning activities at Wae Rana Beach Labuan Bajo, where they collaborated with the #BersihBajo initiative to clean and preserve the coastal environment. TA’AKTANA not only ensures a luxurious and memorable experience for its guests but also actively contributes to the well-being and preservation of Labuan Bajo's rich heritage and natural surroundings and the sustainability of local small businesses all over Indonesia. 

Cultural Immersion & Keeping Traditions

TA’AKTANA is committed to preserving and promoting the rich local tradition and culture of Labuan Bajo. Inspired by The Luxury Collection's ethos of connecting with surrounding traditions, TA’AKTANA draws inspiration from the Lingko field – an agricultural masterpiece found only in Flores, shaped like a spiderweb. The shape of the site, such as the interconnected terraces of the villas and pathways, is also inspired by the geometries of rice fields, symbolizing the region's ancient culture. The materials used throughout the resort further represent and honour the area's rich heritage. 

As part of this commitment, TA’AKTANA also embraces a unique tradition from Labuan Bajo's past. In times when electricity was absent, locals illuminated their surroundings with lanterns or candles. In a nod to this historical practice, TA’AKTANA provides lanterns in every room for guests to use when strolling around the property. This thoughtful touch creates a unique and immersive experience, connecting guests with the rich cultural heritage of the region.

If you're seeking captivating stories centered around sustainability, luxury travel, or cultural immersion, TA'AKTANA offers a compelling narrative. From pioneering eco-friendly initiatives to collaborations with local artisans and communities, this resort provides ample opportunities for impactful storytelling. Whether intrigued by sustainable tourism practices, unique luxury experiences, or the vibrant cultural tapestry of Labuan Bajo, TA'AKTANA presents an enriching and resonant narrative for your audience.
