Splendour

Perfect for families, this luxury, charter-only, pleasure yacht offers sea and land adventures.

Overview

Inspired by the 1920’s American pleasure yachts and designed specifically for people who appreciate design, privacy and the finer things in life, the 65ft Splendour Yacht Komodo not only explores the Komodo National Park but also Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa. The yacht has three flat-surfaced decks and can comfortably accommodate up to nine guests.

Cabins

There are three air-conditioned cabins to choose from, as well as the back lounge, which can be converted to an outdoor cabin for guests who would like to sleep under the stars. The Master Cabin is located at the bow of the boat and was designed with maximum comfort and privacy in mind, complete with reading lights, ventilation hatches, portholes and a private en-suite bathroom.

The two Cocoon Cabins, located on the Lower Deck, are cosy and functional and equipped with reading lights and portholes. Both have direct access to a shared bathroom and toilet.

Life On Board

Whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to unwind with a book or a social area to hang out with your family or friends while sipping a drink at the bar or having dinner at the dining table, you’ll find plenty of space aboard the Splendour. Start your day on the Upper Deck with some morning yoga, soak up the sun, dive into the sea for a refreshing dip, or enjoy a cocktail while watching the dazzling Indonesian sunsets.

Slip into the cool waters off the Swim Deck for a wonderful snorkeling experience. Relax in the generously-sized back lounge or watch a movie or view your own photos and videos on the huge pull down screen that converts the back lounge into your own private cinema. At night Splendour’s alfresco Upper Deck will become your star-gazing platform.

Facilities

On board facilities on the Splendour Yacht Charter include an eight-guest-seater tender with 40HP engine available for private transfers, water-sports, and local voyages, snorkeling gear, a double stand-up paddleboard, two wakeboards and two surfboards.

A range of activities is available to satisfy all ages and customized voyages have been carefully crafted to discover the most spectacular scenery and wildlife around the Indonesian waters.

Gaze in awe as thousands of bats come alive at sunset and shadow the sky. Encounter Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. Surf the world-class breaks of Lombok and Sumbawa. Enjoy a private sunset picnic on a deserted beach. Meanwhile, the waters of Indonesia are teeming with life and snorkeling is a wonderfully accessible activity for everyone including children.

Discover vibrant reefs of soft and hard corals and come face to face with colorful fish, turtles, gentle reef sharks and giant manta rays. The very able crew will ensure that you and your family and friends are well-looked after, not only on board and on land, but also on and under the water.

Embarkation

AM: Start your journey with a small island with captivating beauty, both in the land and below, such as Sebayur island.

A great place for a starter, Sebayur is blessed with undulating hills of brownish-yellow grass, providing a pleasing contrast with the surrounding ocean. Its charming view invites you to take a short track to the hilltop, to enjoy an unobstructed ocean view and sense idyllic remoteness.

If you are a licensed diver, don’t miss the chance to dive in Sebayur - diving is Sebayur’s main attraction, anyway! A number of world-renown diving sites lie just a few hundreds of meters off the shore, such as the famous Batu Bolong, Crystal Rock, and Castle Rock. The surrounding marine life is spectacular with sloping reefs, coral walls, colorful sea critters, and schools of many kinds of fishes. It’s almost like diving in a clear aquarium. Past the beautiful coral plateau, the water is heaven for pelagic hunters, turtle galore, micro diving, and occasional passing Mantas.

PM: If you wish, you can spend your first afternoon here. The island is famous as one of the best spots in Flores to enjoy the most beautiful sunset ever. Sits on the idyllic hills and watch the sky change into pastel colors, before heading back to the cruise and prepare for tomorrow’s adventure.

Gili Lawa Darat

AM: Start the day with something fresh, and docking to Gili Lawa Darat is our suggestion. n fact, the island is one of the greatest places to catch a wonderful sunrise. Take a little tracking to the hills and enjoy an almost magical scenery when the sunrise from the horizon, slowly reveals the ocean and the bumpy hills of the archipelago from the darkness of the night. From January to May, you will be greeted with lush green grass covering the rolling hills, and the grass turns crisp and yellow during the dry season—turning the island into beautiful savannah.

PM: An afternoon in the cruise clearly calls for a dip in the clear water, and it will be a great loss to miss a chance to meet the Manta. The Manta Point in Komodo National Park waters is the best place to see these intelligent creatures, as the water is rich with plankton - a delight for the Manta Rays. The Mantas are often traveling in a group and are present almost all year round. Lucky divers can even spend solid 30 minutes of interaction with the Mantas as long as the condition is right.

Padar Island

AM: After spending first two days with water activities, your third day of excursion should be something fun. Why not visit the famous Padar Island today? A trek to this island is one of the most essential things to do during a Flores tour package, something you don't want to miss. As the hills lack of shady trees, it’s best to take a sunrise track early in the morning while the air is still cooler.

Reach the hilltop where you can catch a spectacular sunrise, and you will understand why radar Island steals thousand hearts of wanderers. Once you have finished exploring the magnificent surrounding, make your way down to Padar’s remarkable multicolor beaches, particularly the pink one. It’s time to chill.

PM: Since you are visiting the pink beach of Padar, let’s just spent the whole day indulging in the blushing beaches? Lucky you, we can take you to another pink beach in the tip of Komodo National Park, hidden from other groups of travelers. Get into your snorkeling gear and you will see that the pink beach trails down beautifully to the sea bottom, blushing with the same hue.

Sunbathing in the pink sand while watching the contrasting blue ocean truly feels like a world away from everything. Sadly, it will come the time to leave this lovely beach, and it’s time for the next journey.

AM: The fourth day of adventure will be perfect to visit the limelight of Komodo National Park, and that means the Komodo Dragons themselves! Sail to Rinca, home of the biggest lizard on earth.

PM: A visit to this daunting creature can only be compared by a thrilling stop to a massive bat cave, the Kelor island. They are sleeping soundly during the day and you can watch them safely from the boat, but the real deal happens at dusk. Thousands of bats fly when the sky is turning into velvety tangerine, scattered and start preying their food in the neighboring islands. This is your last night on the cruise, and surely this will be a view you could never forget.

The Passage, Waigeo

Arborek, Batanta

AM: The Dampier Strait is named after the great explorer, William Dampier, who sailed through the great channel on his way to the Northwestern tip of Papua. The Dampier Strait’s tidal surges move a massive amount of seawater, creating a phenomenon where the currents flow parallel to the equator. These tidal surges carry with them a large amount of plankton, which is what attracts hundreds of Mantas to Aroborek Island this time of year. We will have time to dive or snorkel the shallow sandy bottom to waiting for the graceful mantas to pass in an awe-inspiring underwater ballet.

PM: After a hearty lunch, we will head ashore to visit the Arborek village. Relying on the waters for life, they make their living from sustainable fishing. We’ll walk through the small villages, a population close to 200, to meet with the smiling locals and purchase their handmade crafts.
