January 5, 2016 Thalia Yanuar

Already thinking about your next vacation? Rather than heading off to Bali for the umpteenth time, why not actually do things differently this year? Live the dream with an unforgettable adventure aboard one of these luxury yachts. All you have to do next is check your calendar to see when the nearest long weekend is! (Oh, and pick up a new bikini of course…) Bon voyage!

Alila Purnama

The Alila brand is known for award-winning design, and their eponymous super yacht is nothing less than spectacular. Considered one of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships, this 46-meter-long Phinisi ship consists of three decks, sleeps 10 guests in five beautifully furnished cabins, and even comes with a crew of 14 shipmates including a fully licensed PADI dive instructor, spa therapist, and personal chef. Talk about a dream vacation! Depending on the time of year, the Alila Purnama sets sail for the Komodo Islands or the Raja Ampat regions.

Alexa

For a truly one-of-a-kind romantic adventure for two, look no further than the Alexa, a fully-equipped 31-meter-long Phinisi ship that is decked out with stunning interiors. The vessel takes couples on an all-inclusive bespoke journey around the Indonesian islands, tailored to whatever their guests may fancy. The ship’s cruise director arranges everything from seafood BBQs on the beach to expeditions to remote turtle beaches. But if you wish, you can stay onboard the luxurious upper deck to get your tan on or enjoy a romantic dinner underneath the stars.

Amanikan

Explore the Indonesian seas in total luxury with the Amanikan coastal cruiser – the first and smallest ship of the Aman resorts fleet. Built in 2009, this 32-meter yacht was custom crafted to sleep six guests. A beautifully-furnished master cabin with sweeping ocean views and private patio sits atop the upper deck, while two additional cabins are on the main deck. Activities include exhilarating deep-dives and family-friendly snorkeling, as well as stops to the pristine Komodo National Park and magnificent coral reefs.

Amandira

A traditional Phinisi vessel handcrafted by the Konjo tribe, this beaut of a ship has just newly hit the seas last year. Sleeping ten guests in five wood-decked cabins, the Amandira sets sails from the Amanwana to the Komodo National Park and the Raja Ampat islands. Modern furnishings and state of the art appliances ensure a five-star stay. Meanwhile, the best part of the ship is the expansive foredeck where guests can sunbathe, gather around for sunset cocktails, and enjoy an alfresco dinner underneath the stars. Now isn’t that just how life should be lived every day?
