Masked as a traditional Indonesian phinisi schooner, the LAMIMA is actually a 65-metre, two-mast superyacht, which also happens to be one of our favourite ways of journeying through the coral reefs and Spice Islands of Indonesia, Burma and Thailand. Considered the largest wooden sailing boat in the world, this five-star vessel offers a traditional experience with a traditional crew, but with ultimate standards in luxury – a winning combination.

Perfect forA large family or group looking to celebrate a special occasion with a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. For more of our favourite exclusive-use hotels for celebrations, click here

Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Operating in seasons and depending on the weather, the LAMIMA sails through different destinations in Indonesia, Thailand and Burma. The schedules can include trips through the stunning islands of Raja Ampat, between Bali and Komodo National Park, and through the quiet waters of the Mergui Archipelago.

Rooms onboard the Lamima

There are seven spacious and elegant cabins, which have luxurious ensuite bathrooms, comfortable seating and a charming undertone of Indonesian design. The yacht includes one master cabin with its own dressing room, as well as four double cabins and two twin cabins. Although the rooms are decked out to the highest quality, there is always the option of falling asleep on the top deck under the stars.

Food & drink

Your onboard Indonesian chef takes serious pride in sourcing the freshest ingredients from local markets and fisherman, so you will most likely be dining on fresh-caught seafood served al fresco or have a candlelight barbecue on the beach.


Each cabin has internet access and an iPod-friendly sound system, while the yacht has an extensive movie library for entertainment after the sun sets. The saloon, located at the midship of the main deck, includes a bar, lounge and dining alcove. There is also an open-air area where sunseekers can work on their tan while admiring the spectacular views of the islands nearby.

Activities onboard the Lamima

When you’re not diving some of the most beautiful scuba spots in the world, snorkelling with turtles, trekking to ancient villages or looking for birds of paradise and Komodo dragons, you can jet-ski, kayak and wakeboard behind the boat before enjoying tailored spa treatments and cocktails on the deck.
