Explore Indonesia by Luxury Yacht

Indonesia is an increasingly popular destination, with attention turning beyond Bali to the fascinating islands of Java and Lombok and further afield still to Sumba and Komodo. But there’s more - much much more - to see in this beguiling destination, including Raja Ampat in the very bullseye of the Coral Triangle, the so-called 'epicentre of marine biodiversity'.

Raja Ampat comprises over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding four main islands. Tim Simond, author of our partner publication Dive in Style, and a man who has dived a fair bit, calls it quite simply the best diving destination on earth, with mile upon mile of pristine reefs exploding with marine life from mantas and whale sharks to rarer critters such as the pygmy seahorse.

But even if you don't dive, this is a part of the world that remains blissfully remote, completely beautiful and well worthy of exploration. Currently the way to see this region is aboard one of the burgeoning number of super luxurious yachts plying the waters of Raja Ampat. Best of the bunch are sister boats Silolona and Si Datu Bua, closely followed in their slipstream by Tiger Blue and with more boats in the pipeline.

During our summer months, these super luxurious liveaboards ply the waters of the Komodo Archipelago where travellers can dive with mantas and even dolphins, and enjoy a close encounter with a prehistoric being - the fearsome Komodo Dragon.

Where to stay

Silolona

Silolona

If you want the ultimate in luxury yachts then look no further than Silolona. Sailing the seven seas (or any sea, for that matter) really doesn’t get much better.

Si Datu Bua

Si Datu Bua

Silolona's little sister boat is every bit as impressive and luxurious as our favourite yacht, and the perfect vessel from which to experience some of the most unspoilt islands on earth and best diving spots.

Tiger Blue

Tiger Blue liveaboard is an immaculate and newly built 100ft traditional phinisi sailing boat, and as a new build, she is one of the faster boats under power, an important consideration when you visit destinations like Raja Ampat where the distances from north to south are not inconsiderable. As well as Raja Ampat,Tiger Blue operates in the Banda Islands and Komodo/Flores and is available for both private charter and set-date departures throughout the year.
