Why You Should Charter Luxury Yachts in Indonesia

Indonesia is made up of more than 17,000 islands, and while it may take several lifetimes to explore them all, you still have plenty of opportunities to visit and discover some of the country's most popular island destinations.

This would include the "last paradise" Raja Ampat in Papua, the Komodo National Park in Flores, Bunaken, the Banda Islands, Wakatobi, and Taka Bonerate.

One of the best ways to discover everything these locations offer is by yacht or, as they are known here in Indonesia, a phinisi - a traditional and luxurious sailing vessel linked to Indonesia's proud maritime history.

With a private yacht or luxury phinisi, you can genuinely experience adventure the way it was meant to be - out in the open sea and under the open sky. Dipping in and out of lagoons and coves and anchoring in the most remote locations, discovering the world's rarest nature and wildlife.

You and your friends can have the entire vessel to yourself by chartering a luxury yacht. This means you can take your own sweet time sailing from one destination to the next or take as long as you like in all your favourite spots.

You can drop anchor and float about at sea or take the opportunity to dive deep and discover the underwater treasures of the archipelago. You can ride out to land and hike on the most remote islands, picnic on deserted beaches, enjoy some watersports, or have a campfire in exotic coves with no one but your friends around.

Here are a few more reasons you should charter luxury yachts here in Indonesia.

Sailing with a Phinisi Luxury Yachts, A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience.

1. A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience

There is truly nothing like sailing on a traditional luxurious Indonesian phinisi that's been fully restored and beautifully decorated to give you a thrilling yet sumptuous experience. Phinisis are unique to Indonesia thanks to the country's fascinating and rich past. No other vessel on earth can quite compare.

If you crave feeling the wind in your hair and saltwater spray on your face, an adventure onboard one of Indonesia's growing fleet of superb luxury sailing yachts is just for you. Our handpicked luxury yacht fleets guarantee to deliver an experience comparable to that of a five-star hotel while at the same time providing outstanding outdoor panoramas that are simply not possible to duplicate on land.

2. Luxurious and Comfortable

You would be surprised by how luxurious and comfortable a phinisi can be! In recent years, the design of the traditional Indonesian phinisi has taken bold steps in a new and exciting direction.

Our yachts combine the ambience and excitement of luxury cruising in a bygone era, featuring elegant staterooms, salons, and expensive fittings and artworks. Indeed, the standards of cuisine and service have come along in leaps and bounds.

Designed with 5-star luxury in mind, you can expect nothing less than beautifully appointed cabins, living areas, and elegant onboard restaurants. Spa and massage treatments are also commonplace on most high-end luxury vessels.

You will also have access to many watersports, from jet skis to snorkelling and diving, paddle boarding, etc.

A team of friendly and professional staff will take care of all your needs for housekeeping, laundry, food and beverages, and general requests.

3. Restorative and Relaxing

There is no better way to leave the world behind than a sailing holiday onboard a luxury yacht. You can forget all your troubles and spend some time away from your phones and electronic gadgets. You can leave all of life's daily responsibilities behind and sail away into the sunset for a little while.

While onboard, you can partake in healing and restoring activities like yoga and meditation or enjoy a massage. You can also just lie on the deck and soak up the sun while the gentle rocking of the yacht, sound of the waves and creaking timber lull you into a deep state of rest and relaxation.

A few days or weeks like this will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world again!

4. Come Face-To-Face With Nature

Unlike your "regular" holidays where you check-in to a hotel room or a villa, a luxury liveaboard allows you to fully immerse yourself in nature as you sail on the open waters and embrace the elements. Our luxurious and opulent phimosis are fully-equipped with five-star creature comforts but were designed for you to live side-by-side with Mother Nature, with all her gems at your fingertips.

Sail to the Komodo National Park aboard a luxury yacht, enjoy the spellbinding seascape right before dropping anchor, and come face-to-face with the famed Komodo Dragons. Then sail to another island and see the famed Pink Beach before dropping anchor and diving into the heart of a school of Manta Rays!

Another popular destination is Raja Ampat in Papua, a place that time honestly forgot. The waters here are part of the Coral Triangle (home to 75% of the world's coral species), so get ready for some of the most breathtaking underwater experiences! It's one of the most biodiverse locations on the planet, too, with over 1400 species of fish.

Along your journey, you will be able to witness every type of tropical seascape, from sleepy mangrove backwaters and crystal-clear coral atolls to wave-battered basalt cliffs and current-swept rocky seamounts, all of them teeming with wildly colourful life.
