Sailing Through Indonesia In Style
Indonesia is an incredible country spread over almost two million square miles and made up of over 17,000 islands, and hundreds of tribes, languages, and customs. Offering plenty of opportunity for relaxation, fine-dining, solo exploration and shopping, this exciting 21-day luxury tour begins in Java’s cultural city of Jogjakarta, where you can discover the ancient Buddhist temple of Borobudur, and the smaller temples of Pawon and Mendut. Hop over to the beautiful island of Bali for some spa indulgence and spiritual cleansing, a Hindu temple tour and some mouth-watering cuisine, and continue by sailing through Indonesia, exploring both the Komodo National Park, and Raja Ampat in West Papua: regions rich with some of the most breath-taking natural scenery in the archipelago.
Java and Bali
Your sailing trip Indonesia begins on land in Jogjakarta (aka Yogyakarta), the historic and cultural soul of Java, a bustling city that is known for its wonderful arts and is still headed by a sultan. Explore the Sultan’s ‘kraton’ (walled city palace), which remains the hub of traditional life, as well as the Taman Sari water palace and the city market. Marvel at the sunrise over the 7th century Buddhist temple of Borobudur, one of Indonesia’s most important archaeological sites, and enjoy some free time in a truly sumptuous hotel. Transfer to Bali for a pampering spa treatment and a tour of some of the island’s most iconic Hindu temples, from the jungle to the sea. Immerse yourself in a holy spring-fed pool for a spiritual cleansing.
Cruise through a panorama of islands in the spectacular Komodo National Park, and relish new wonders on a daily basis. Explore pink beaches; trek to savannah-clad viewpoints at sunset; swim with giant manta rays; encounter the legendary Komodo Dragons, and witness the astonishing sight of hundreds of thousands of flying foxes emerging in a steady throng from the forest at dusk. There will be ample opportunity to snorkel and view the kaleidoscopic beauty of the underwater world.
Transfer to West Papua to experience a sailing Indonesia voyage like no other in gorgeous Raja Ampat, the archipelago with the richest marine biodiversity on Earth. Apart from your crew of dedicated, trained staff, who will be on hand to cater to your every need, your splendid boutique sailing yacht will be yours and yours alone for this fantastic private adventure. Here, you will be cruising among some of the most remote and beautiful islands on the planet, where nature has carved out a series of coves and lagoons, inlets, caves, and shaded, sandy beaches. If truth be told, the pure, unadulterated splendor of Raja Ampat astounds anyone who ventures the enormous distance to get there.
Your hotel accommodations on land will be in three of Indonesia’s most luxurious, top-end boutique hotels, complete with exemplary service and cuisine.
Each segment of your journey is led by a private tour guide, who will take you beyond the tourist façade to experience an abundance of culture, history, nature and wildlife, combined with trekking, snorkelling, scuba diving if you wish, kayaking, stand-up paddling, swimming, and pure relaxation. This luxury adventure is just a sample itinerary, and the featured excursions, cruise vessels, and accommodations herein can be tailored in accordance with your personal wishes.
