With 13 suites, 192 luxury guestrooms, a private beach, a spa, a fitness center, three swimming pools and six restaurants, guests take their pick as to where they best wish to watch the sunset and look out over Kukusan Island.

In anticipation of the opening, AYANA Hotels offers the Stay Longer for Less package, available through March 2019. The special includes one free night for two-night stays and two free nights added onto four-night stays.
