And while for ordinary people, owning a yacht may seem like a dream come true, it comes with its own special set of headaches...
LUXURY SAILING ON ALILA PURNAMA
The 46m sailing ship Alila Purnama, operated by the Alila Hotels and Resorts group, is one of the most luxurious live aboard Phinisi ships in Asia, that is available for exclusive charter in Indonesia.
Translated as The Full Moon, this luxury sailboat is now available for tailor-made voyages of discovery throughout the stunning, undiscovered waters of the Indonesian Archipelago, including Raja Ampat and Komodo.
Alila Purnama consists of three decks and has been built by hand in the traditional style of a Phinisi, as used by the Bugis seafarers from south Sulawesi in Indonesia. In keeping with Alila’s emphasis on style and sustainability, the furniture throughout the boat is custom-made from teak, rattan and other locally sourced materials from Indonesia. She can accommodate up to ten guests in five well-appointed en-suite including a master suite with large wraparound windows offering 180-degree views of the ever-changing yet incredible landscape.
A library, lounge, bar, indoor dining area seating up to 10 persons and plenty of space outside to unwind and enjoy the views are some of the facilities. Alila Purnama also has its own fully licensed PADI dive centre, spa therapist and plenty of space for wining, dining and relaxing while enjoying the sea breeze.
For those with a taste for adventure, yoga, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, visiting local islands and pearl farms, picnic lunch or BBQ dinner by the beach are among the many other pursuits on offer.
