Amandira fuses the Sanskrit words for ‘peace’ and ‘intrepid’, and this is exactly what she offers guests – the chance to become an intrepid explorer, visiting some of the Indonesian archipelago’s most remote islands, without foregoing the comfort of a luxury hotel.

Launched in May 2015, the newest addition to the Aman fleet - Amandira - is a traditional Phinisi Schooner, with the ability to explore under motor power, or the romanticism of sail power.

Amandira includes five spacious cabins, each with ensuite bathroom with shower and twin vanities. Two cabins are fitted with King beds, while a third offers a Queen bed, or Twin set up. Two further cabins include bunk beds. The Master cabin, and two Deluxe cabins also feature a living area with sofa, coffee table and writing desk, providing a private retreat for guests.

The expansive teak foredeck is the principal social area for guests, with plenty of sun loungers, and a well-stocked bar, where the crew will be happy to mix up pre-dinner cocktails. Amandira also features an indoor lounge, and a library and entertainment room.

Amandira is designed as a luxury sailing and dive vessel, and the crew of 14 ensure seamless service on-board. A dive master and team will support guests in their exploration of the reefs.

Amandira offers a seven night Amandira Komodo Expedition, which runs in our summer months, from April to October. From November to February, Amandira sails east to the stunning jungle clad cluster of islands known as Raja Ampat, to offer world class snorkel and dive opportunities on five or seven night expeditions.

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.



The fad for phinisi liveaboard boats in the waters off Indonesia’s islands shows no signs of running out of steam (or sail), and the arrival of the Alexa only ups the ante higher.



Imagine the comfort of an exclusive hotel within the hull of a traditional Phinisi cruiser, and you have the Amanikan. This is a floating Aman resort with all the style and luxury you could imagine.
