FrontRunners: Alila Purnama

<< Back to Robb Report, February 2013

    Although the ship Alila Purnama (www.alilahotels.com) launched only two months ago, the tales from her voyages sound like legends of old. They tell of navigating seldom-sailed waters and encountering islands overrun with fierce dragons. The 150-foot phinisi, a traditional Indonesian sailing ship, is constructed of Indonesia-sourced rattan and teak and has been designed to meet the standards for comfort and convenience of Alila Hotels and Resorts’ Alila Villas.

    Six-night expeditions start at $54,000 for as many as 10 passengers, who are accommodated in the vessel’s five suites. The price covers diving excursions outfitted by an onboard PADI dive center, all other water activities, meals and nonalcoholic beverages, and the attention of a 16-member crew (which includes a chef and a spa therapist). Through October, the ship will sail the Flores Sea and the waters of Indonesia’s Komodo National Park, home of the world’s largest lizard species, the Komodo dragon.
