El Aleph was built by master cabinet makers in Bali over a period of more than 200,000 hours, and the attention to detail can be seen throughout in the 100-year-old teak and ironwood decks and detailing, modern conveniences like full marine battery capacity that allows her to cruise in ‘quiet mode’ with the engines off, and the gorgeous interiors with large windows, soft furnishings and intricate lattice work.
Outside there is plenty of space for lounging and al fresco dining at the large wooden table with bench seating on the main deck, on the promenade deck, sun deck and the large lounge area on the bowsprit. For days when the weather doesn’t permit al fresco dining, there is a spacious dining area inside with a large table, cushioned bench seating, a galley and a library.
The experienced cruise directors on El Aleph will take you on a journey of discovery to exotic locales like Komodo National Park where the famous Komodo dragons reside, Raja Ampat with its incredible coral gardens, jungle-covered islands and pristine white sand beaches, and the small towns and villages of the Banda Islands where Dutch colonial houses and ancient forts still stand. Along the way you can stop to snorkel in secluded lagoons, dive among shipwrecks and schools of tropical fish, and visit remote villages where time seems to have stood still for centuries.
El Aleph boast five beautiful cabins, the biggest of which is the master cabin above deck. The master cabin has a king-sized bed made up with crisp white linens, an L-shaped sofa set next to huge windows for watching the seascapes pass by, a writing desk, ensuite bathroom and a private terrace. Below deck there are four double ensuite cabins and an additional smaller cabin that is perfect for children or a nanny. Each suite also has its own individually controlled air-conditioning units and plenty of shelving and storage space.
