Having enjoyed the crescent beach, tropical jungle forest and cascading falls of Moyo Island, clients can leave Amanwana's jungle retreat and tented luxury, for a true sailing odyssey - in authentic Aman style. During the months of May to October, privileged guests can cruise the tropical Indonesian Archipelago and visit the famous Komodo National Park aboard their beautiful 32-metre custom-built Amanikan coastal cruiser. This private luxury charter, resembles a traditional teak spice trading vessel with all the modern comforts an Aman guest would expect. Complete with a dedicated crew of 10, Amanikan affords adventurous guests an exceptional marine experience - a five night journey of discovery, sailing some of the most bio-diverse turquoise waters on the planet, passing a string of pristine islands and being fortunate enough to see the largest land-dwelling reptile in the world - the Komodo Dragon found on Komodo Island. Only two islands in the world, support the natural habitat of the prehistoric Komodo Dragon - an astonishing grey lizard which can grow to a lengthy 3 metres and weigh up to 166kg.
Once aboard the floating haven of teak, rattan and crisp linen, guests can take life at their own pace - snorkel, picnic on remote islands, enjoy diving or island hiking, or perhaps simply enjoy the dazzling beauty of the passing islets. The expert crew includes a chef and qualified diving instructor, with diving and snorkelling equipment provided for all guests. Two daily dives per person are included in the rates and guests can even take their PADI certification during their stay on board. With 450 species of reef coral and 1,200 species of fish, the sheer biodiversity is amazing and the volcanic underwater topography is home to some of the best dive sites in the world. From sea turtles and moray eels to puffer fish and spotted rays, guests will be thrilled by the unique marine spectacles - whether they choose to dive, paddle-board, enjoy kayaking or simply snorkel.
Boasting 3 vaulted and air-conditioned bedroom suites that are all on the main deck (no portholes) and a master cabin with 270 degree sweeping views and large private sun deck, there is plenty of space to relax on board amongst the soothing soft décor of taupe and natural woods. Once the three main islands of Komodo, Padar and Rinca have been explored, guests can perhaps turn their attention to fishing or star-gazing. A fleet of specialist support boats are also available - perfect for larger groups or further explorations. In addition to Amanikan and their 52-metre wooden phinisi Amandira, Amawana also has a fleet which includes outriggers, speedboats, catamarans and skiffs.
