Raja Laut is an elegant and timeless adaptation of a 19th century trading schooner. In 2015 she underwent major renovations and modernised in line with what one might expect of a contemporary luxury yacht.view
Tiaré makes a striking impression as she glides through the water with her garnet coloured sails, white wooden hull, and traditional Phinisi-style design. Outfitted with antique wood salvaged from old joglos, she embodies the spirit of traditional Indonesian sailing vessels and sustainability, yet her safety features, facilities and personalised service are to the highest luxury standards. Offering incredible journeys to amazing dive sites and remote locations across the Indonesian archipelago, Tiaré is a popular choice with both divers and non-divers alike.
Tiaré's large sun deck is the perfect spot for reclining on a lounger and soaking up the sun, and it also provides a space for socialising and enjoying al fresco meals at the large wooden table. There is also a bow lounge outside with comfortable loungers and chairs, and a dedicated dive deck with space for every diver to set up their equipment.
Inside, the bright and airy living area has plush sofas and tables for dining in air-conditioned comfort, as well as a bar stocked with imported wines and spirits and a small cigar store. Photographers will love the indoor camera room with ample space to store your equipment, as well as the PC area where you can edit your photos and videos. There is also a spa room where you can indulge in rejuvenating massages and body treatments.
Tiaré specialises in Indonesian diving cruises, so their voyages cover areas like Komodo National Park, Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea, all of which have incredible dive sites and a vast array of diverse marine life. Your dedicated dive master can take you to underwater caves and tunnels, vibrant coral gardens and shipwrecks where you could encounter mantas, whale sharks, skeleton shrimp, pelagics and more.
For non-divers, these areas also offer plenty to see and do. Adventurous types can hike up volcanoes, trek through pristine rainforests to see waterfalls, lakes and interesting wildlife, or stop in at remote villages to learn about the diverse cultures that vary from island to island. History buffs can explore the Banda Islands, which were once at the centre of the spice trade, and sun, sea and sand lovers can play on miles of empty white sand beaches.
The six elegant cabins onboard Tiarè feature luxurious linens, fluffy towels, soft lighting and ensuite bathrooms with hot water showers and amenities like environmentally friendly soap and shampoo, hair dryers and sun cream. There are two triple cabins that can comfortably sleep three adults or two adults and a child, as well as two twin cabins and two double cabins. Each cabin has been tastefully designed with warm wood, Indonesian textiles and unique artworks.
Every effort has been made on Tiaré to provide guests with the ultimate five-star comfort, so you will find contemporary conveniences throughout like complimentary Wi-Fi, a stereo system, iPad, a TV and DVD player, and CD and DVD burning facilities. In addition, Tiaré's staff of 15 crew members includes a cruise director, private chef, engineers, cabin crew, two certified divemasters, and dive crew who will help you transfer your equipment to and from the tenders and wash and dry your wetsuits after your dive expeditions.
