6 GUESTS + 4
The renowned Aman Resorts’ second foray into yachting in Indonesia, Dira (translating as “Peace” in Sanskrit) is a 52-metre phinisi that launched in 2015 as a sister boat to the brand’s first yacht, Amanikan. Combining the soul of the ancient spice vessels that once plied Indonesia’s waters with modern comforts, Dira is one of the newest boats in our portfolio and a truly superb choice. Aman Resorts are renowned for extraordinary service, and Dira is no exception.
She combines well with a stay at Amanwana, a luxurious tented camp on the private Moyo Island, just off the coast of Sumbawa, though she is available for charter throughout Indonesia including Komodo National Park, the Bandas – also known as the original spice islands – and Raja Ampat off the coast of West Papua.
Dira can also be combined with Aman’s first boat – Amanikan – for the ultimate getaway for large groups. She is the perfect option for both Amanjunkies and intrepid travellers seeking the journey of a lifetime, and a crew of 14 includes a masseuse, a private chef, a cruise director and a dive guide.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES
Dira consists of 3 beautiful main suites and 2 bunk cabins. A master cabin is fitted with a king-size bed and has magnificent 270-degree views through wraparound windows and a private outdoor lounge on the aft deck. Two deluxe cabins feature a living area with sofa, coffee table and a writing desk; one offers a king-size bed while another offers a queen-size bed that can be converted into a twin set up. Two bunk cabins accommodate two guests each, ideal for families with children.
Styled in Aman’s signature neutral cream, caramel and fawn décor, Dira pays homage to tradition with a good dose of local style combined with contemporary luxury. All cabins have ensuite marble and wood fitted bathrooms with double vanities, showers and separate toilets.
Dira’s expansive teak foredeck is dotted with plenty of sunloungers around a bar area, while inside, guests will find an indoor lounge, a library and entertainment room. The experienced staff caters to all guests’ individual needs, and the chef serves a combination of international and Asian cuisine.
Onboard facilities include air-conditioning, portable Bose docking stations, kayaks and fishing gear, as well as all snorkelling and diving equipment (including Nitrox).
