Hotel Overview


Amandira takes passengers on a journey to either Komodo National Park, home of the Komodo dragon, or the Raja Ampat islands, depending on the season. 

Rooms at Amandira Luxury Cruise

There are five luxurious cabins on board: one master, two deluxe and two additional cabins with bunk beds. Each has a well-appointed ensuite bathroom and is fully air-conditioned, while the master and deluxe cabins also come with their own private living areas with plush couches and coffee tables for some private downtime.

Food & drink

A private chef prepares all meals on board, while cocktails are served at the well-stocked bar on the spacious foredeck. Let the staff mix you a pre-dinner cocktail at sundown and move to the indoor lounge after dark for a boozy nightcap.


A crew of 14 staff will ensure your stay on Amandira is comfortable and personalised. The main social area on the vessel comprises a bar, lounge, library and entertainment room, with a teak foredeck for kicking back on a sun lounger and admiring the gorgeous views of the turquoise sea overhead.

Activities at Amandira Luxury Cruise

On this sailing adventure you’ll visit deserted beaches and have ample opportunities to dive into some of the world’s most remote and impressive reefs, home to thousands of species of fish as well as sharks, whales, manta rays and turtles. Depending on when you visit, you’ll either sail to Komodo National Park, housing 250 types of coral and the famous giant lizards, or the exquisite Raja Ampat region, considered one of the most diverse marine habitats on Earth. What really makes this journey so incredibly special, however, is its remoteness, allowing you to be truly at one with nature.
