There is nothing more romantic, exotic or downright adventurous than boarding your own private Phinisi sailing boat decked out in antiques and state-of-the-art amenities and setting off to sea to explore secluded coves, traditional villages and deserted islands. The Alexa is a traditional Indonesian sailing vessel that has been lovingly restored to provide you with unique and luxurious cruises around Bali and the Indonesian archipelago. The ship's 7 crew includes a Cruise Director who is a certified dive instructor, a Resident Spa Therapist, Private Chef and Captain with 15 years navigating experience.
The 31-metre-long Alexa consists of two decks and has been built by hand in the traditional style of a Phinisi. In keeping with Oazia’s emphasis on style and sustainability, the furniture throughout the boat is custom-made from teak, rattan and other locally sourced materials from Indonesia. The main deck offers several open lounge areas and on the lower deck is a library stocked with travel books and maps, along with a big screen TV. The original ship’s galley has been replaced with a modern open galley.
While on board, you will be treated to five-star service by the friendly and professional staff. Your private chef will provide you with custom gourmet meals, the butler will serve up champagne and sunset cocktails on request, and the cruise director can help you plan bespoke cruises based on your specific dreams and desires. There is even a personal dive instructor onboard, should you wish to see some of the magnificent underwater world that awaits offshore.
Couples seeking the ultimate in luxury, can now explore the Indonesian Archipelago aboard a traditional sailing vessel built just for two. With only one expansive cabin on the 31-meter Alexa, cruises are individually tailored to couple’s wishes, from surfing in Sumbawa, trekking and diving in Komodo National Park, or swimming with dolphins in the Flores Sea. Walk on a deserted beach in a far-flung exotic island or just kick back and do nothing at all, aboard what is essentially a luxury floating resort for two.
The first days of a lifetime together are a memory to cherish. What could be a better setting for starting a lifelong journey than crystal clear ocean and blue sky? Wake up in the most romantic cabin ever designed, spend the day exploring the ocean and the islands, have a bottle of champagne and the most beautiful kiss while watching the sunset, grill lobsters for dinner, dive into each others eyes under the stars, swim naked in the moon light, fall asleep in each other's arms – smiling. We will take care of the rest.
The most undiscovered archipelago in the world: marine life is abundant, coral reefs are untouched, islands are counted in thousands, beaches in millions. Unique tribal cultures are still maintaining their centuries old traditions and rituals. Explore the depths of the sea and the land, hunt for antiques, encounter whales and observe Komodo dragons, be the first man to put your foot on the pink sand of a remote island, take part in mystical ancient ceremonies on your Indonesian Yacht Charter with Alexa. You are the Captain, you decide where the journey takes you – we will be your local guides.

KOMODO NATIONAL PARK
Komodo National Park lies in the Wallacea Region of Indonesia, identified by WWF and Conservation International as a global conservation priority area, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores.
Komodo National Park includes three major islands: Komodo, Rinca and Padar, as well as numerous smaller islands creating a total surface area (marine and land) of more than 1,800 km2. As well as being home to the Komodo Dragon - the world's largest living lizard and can reach 3 metres or more in length and weigh over 70kg - the park provides refuge for many other notable terrestrial species. Moreover, the Park includes one of the richest marine environments.
As far as the marine fauna is concerned, Komodo National Park includes one of the world's richest marine environments. It consists of over 260 species of reef building coral, 70 different species of sponges, crustaceans, cartilaginous (incl. manta ray and sharks) and over a 1,000 different species of bony fishes (over 1,000 species), as well as marine reptiles (incl. sea turtles), and marine mammals (dolphins, whales, and dugongs).
Located to the East of Flores, Alor archipelago is formed by 20 pristine islands and is becoming famous for its world class diving, scenic underwater rock formations, abundant fish life, virgin coral walls and slopes. The main attractions are seasonal passage of whales and diving with such unique underwater creatures as Mola Mola (Sunfish), Thresher shark, whale, giant Grouper and more.
Cruising the archipelago is pure bliss, most of this huge chain of islands enjoys calm seas and warm sunny weather throughout most of the year.
The cruise to Alor will not be complete without venturing deep into the country side and visiting some of the friendliest and most authentic tribes and traditional villages in Indonesia. Time seems to have stopped here centuries ago, a unique experience in our busy world.
WAKATOBI MARINE PARK
The third largest marine park in Indonesia. Legendary underwater explorer and conservationist, Jacques Cousteau is said to have called the Wakatobi islands – then known as the Tukangbesi islands: an "Underwater Nirwana".
Now a National Marine Park covering the entire Waktobi District, it comprises a total of 1.4 million hectares, of which 900,000 hectares are decorated with different, colourful species of tropical coral reefs.
Rising from the depths of the Banda Sea, south east of the mainland of Sulawesi, the main islands of Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomea, Binongki - WaKaToBi reefs are different from others in the region due to dry climate and uplifted limestone. The environment is exceptionally clean due to the lack of soil erosion. Wakatobi is widely recognized as having the highest number of reef and fish species in the world. The islands are also famous as the largest barrier reef in Indonesia, second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. This is the habitat of large and small fish species, the playground of dolphins, turtles and even whales.
MOYO & SUMBAWA
The island of Sumbawa Besar is all volcanic ridges, jungle peninsulas and sheltered bays. The southwest coast is where Sumbawa is most spectacular, with pristine white beaches that see amazing surf. There are several less known diving spots along its coast, and probably more to be discovered.
The island of Moyo floats atop the gorgeous azure seas just north of Sumbawa Besar. Most of the island, and the rich coral reefs off-shore, form a nature reserve laced with hiking trails, dripping with waterfalls and offering some of the best diving west of Komodo National Park.
Marine biologists consider eastern Indonesia to be the world's epicenter of marine life, and Raja Ampat harbors probably the greatest diversity of all – including at last count 1223 species of coral reef fish, 565 hard corals and some 700 mollusks. The reefs have hundreds of brilliantly coloured soft and hard corals, the marine topography varies from vertical walls and pinnacles to reef flats and underwater ridges. You can get up close with huge manta rays and giant clams, watch schools of barracudas, peer at tiny pygmy seahorses and encounter a wobbegong or epaulette shark.
This group of 610 mostly uninhabited islands offers some of the best diving in the world. Raja Ampat's sheer number and variety of fish, its huge reef systems have divers in raptures. It is like swimming in a tropical aquarium.
One well-appointed suite, with air-conditioning and queen-size bed, en-suite bathroom with shower, double wardrobe, and balcony relaxation area. The master suite, which is expansively, designed boasting large, wraparound windows offering 270-degree views of the ever-changing yet incredible landscape providing the ultimate space for relaxation.

Guests will be able to dine at leisure in the air-conditioned dining room or on the outdoor deck. Meals and an extensive list of non-alcoholic beverages are all-inclusive while alcoholic beverages including wines, beers and cocktails are available for an additional charge. The main outdoor deck has large oversized daybeds shaded by tarpaulin – perfect for relaxing day or night and enjoying the fresh sea breezes. And with a spa therapist aboard the vessel, guests can succumb to the soothing pleasures of a signature Alexa massage on-board or on a nearby beach.
The Alexa also has its own fully licensed PADI dive centre, catering to qualified divers. Development courses offered on-board range from Open Water Diver to over 16 specialties, including Deep, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Drift and Underwater Naturalist. There is plenty of equipment for all guests on-board as well as a dedicated freshwater rinse tank for camera equipment. For those with a taste for adventure, surfing, fishing, snorkelling, visiting local islands and pearl farms are among the many other pursuits on offer.
Alexa was built in 2013 and spans 31m with a beam of 6.5m and a draft of 2.5m. 1 cabin accommodates up to 2 guests (with space for children available in the saloon area). She cruises at a maximum speed of 8 knots.
