We recently appeared in a wonderful piece in CNN on destinations around the world chosen by experts in luxury travel. Our founder, Eddie Widnall, spilled the secrets on dolphin spotting in Komodo National Park and exploring hidden caves in Raja Ampat.
For anyone who has ever wondered exactly how most of the yachts on our portfolio are built, we wanted to share this insightful video on traditional phinisi craftsmanship, presented by the artisan shipwrights of Ara.
This fully refitted phinisi style yacht has just launched in Komodo National Park. Combining Indonesian charm with modern comforts, Nyaman features authentic teak decks and large windows in many of her 7 cabins.
Nyaman joins our Adventure portfolio and is a wonderful option for an affordable private charter.
Ever dreamed of an encounter with the legendary whale shark? A trip to Cenderawasih Bay is practically a guarantee - these gentle giants are the main draw of the region, gathering in groups among the locals’ fishing platforms to feed on the small fry that escapes the nets.
- 1 May - 2 June 2017
Alila Purnama will be cruising this region in May and June 2017, with availability for private charter in this magical, remote area of Indonesia. Join the local fishermen who believe these whale sharks are under the protection of the spirits - it's a truly amazing sight.
Our founder Eddie Widnall recently contributed to Billionaire Magazine’s report on cruising in Southeast Asia, with reference to two wonderful yachts on our portfolio; the single-cabin Alexa and classical schooner Raja Laut.
