Komodo Luxury Cruise Ayana Lako di'a


On 1 September AYANA sets sail to the world’s largest specially built Phinisi ship for 2, 3 and 5 night cruises, as well as charter experiences around the Komodo Islands.

The art of Phinisi ship-building is an age-old craft of the Sulawesi Konjo people, who use ancient techniques passed down from generation to generation. As of December 2017, the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared South Sulawesi’s incredible Phinisi boat-building art as part of the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

AYANA’s nine-bedroom luxury Phinisi boasts five-star luxury cabins, full dining options, aqua activities and equipment, as well as professional spa treatments.

Unlike traditional Indonesia cruising, AYANA Lako di’a will visit remote dive spots and underwater wonderlands frequented by few divers. These secret dive spots offer guests the opportunity to explore rare aquatic species, swim with manta rays and dive amongst coral gardens – all with crystal water clarity. Snorkelling, SUP Yoga, trawling, and dolphin watching are just a sample of the additional water activities available to guests.

AYANA’s latest resort will open in Komodo in September 2018 – AYANA Komodo Resort, Waecicu Beach.
