The Trans Luxury Yacht

An elegant and exclusive expedition yacht reflective of the Trans Hotel Group's own unique style.

Overview

Originally a Japanese yacht built in 1991, the Trans Luxury Yacht (formerly the MV Salila) was extensively rebuilt between 2019-2021 to become a truly magnificent charter vessel, a 58-meter, 20-passenger, luxury super yacht ready to take you on exclusive journeys across the thrilling Komodo National Park of Indonesia.

Her distinctive design, which includes custom patterns exclusively designed for The Trans Luxury Yacht, blends contemporary style with Indonesian tradition, and crafts a space that harmonizes historical elegance with modern accents, reflective of the Trans Hotel Group’s own unique style.

Her 20-strong, full service crew—which includes a Cruise Director to ensure smooth, stress-free operations—equally epitomizes the Group’s renowned gold standard level hospitality.

Life On Board

The yacht has 5 decks of dining, entertainment, and relaxation options to make you and your guests feel at home. (There are also amenities which may make the vessel attractive to groups of colleagues or societies, such as the multi-purpose Meeting Room space, ideal for board meetings or special occasions featuring state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment.)

The yacht’s 10 comfortable cabins can be found split over the two lowermost decks, with 8 cabins (4 double and 4 twin) on the Lower deck, and 2 suites located on the Upper Deck near to the on board Spa Room. All come with ensuite bathrooms exquisitely fitted with Italian Serpiente marble and adorned with exclusive Acqua di Parma toiletries.

The main Saloon Deck features a spacious and sophisticated living room, with smart LED TV and audio equipment, a bar area and an indoor dining room, whilst the Navigation Deck features the aforementioned meeting room, as well as an outdoor dining area (picture alfresco dining with unrestricted views of paradise!) and the bridge.But the uppermost Sundeck is where you’ll spend the majority of your time whilst on board, with another bar area, enticing Jacuzzi, and heavenly outdoor lounge.

Foodies will not be disappointed as the Trans Luxury Yacht offers a 5-star culinary journey inspired by Asian traditions with modern twists. The on board chefs provide a variety of full-board menus, from healthy breakfasts and family style lunches, to barbecues by the beach and set menu evening dinners for a more intimate dining experience.

Excursions

Whilst all itineraries are tailorable to your group’s needs, on any given day you could be visiting the islands’ famously alluring pink sand beaches, perfect spots for snorkeling, sunbathing and kayaking, or exploring the underwater treasures of the Coral Triangle from the comfort of the yacht’s glass-bottomed tender.

Or you might be trekking through the savanna of Komodo Island for an up-close encounter with the iconic, resident Komodo dragons, witnessing the giant ‘Flying Foxes’ that roost on Koaba Island, or being greeted by playful dolphins at the beautiful Bidadari (Angel) Island.

Well-known for its clear water and long stretch of white sandy beach, Bidadari is also great for water activities and a top location to try out the Trans luxury yacht’s array of water sports equipment at your disposal, including snorkel gear, sea kayak, stand-up paddle board, as well as wakeboard and donut ride options.

Diving is also a possibility but this activity is only possible on charters of a minimum length of 4 days for an additional cost. Just to the north of Rinca Island, Wainilu beach is a little paradise for macro lovers, perfect for divers (and underwater photographers) of all abilities.

A range of 3 – 7 day private charter cruise itineraries (6 & 7 day itineraries upon request) sailing Komodo National Park are available to choose from, all promising guests incredible exclusive experiences in one of Indonesia’s most sought after destinations.
