Alila Hotels and Resorts introduces new luxury ship the Alila Purnama setting sail in December

Stylish boutique hotel group Alila Hotels and Resorts is launching a new “property,” a phinisi—aka an Indonesian two-masted sailing ship—called the Alila Purnama starting December 15 in Indonesia’s remote West Papua province.
The liveaboard vessel’s inaugural island-hopping expedition will be a six day affair. With three decks, four cabins and one master suite, the roomy ship can carry 10 passengers and 16 staff members, with the latter ready to wait on the former hand and foot.
If you’re a certified diver, you can head underwater straight off the boat, but the Purnama also houses a licensed PADI dive center offering advanced courses. There are also plenty of options for those who prefer to stay on top of the sea.
It’s rough, you know, when your options are to lounge atop an oversized daybed, watch a DVD in the kitted-out library, take advantage of the on-board spa therapist or ask to be taken to a deserted beach nearby. The six-day trip comes in at HK$418,608 (S$65,939) for 10 people—not including transportation to Bali.
