The world’s largest and most luxurious phinisi yacht, Prana by Atzaró sets sail again and announces two exciting new routes for 2020 and 2021.
The two new itineraries, from Alor to Maumere (The Coral Triangle) and Labuan Bajo to Bima, will sail through the beautiful and remote islands of Indonesia, past active volcanic islands, pink beaches, waters teeming with marine life and some of the best diving sites in the world. From Komodo Dragons to Whales, Manta Rays to Turtles, these trips offer the chance to see the wonders of nature up close and personal.
A beautiful hand-built boat, the biggest of its kind in the world, Prana by Atzaro can accommodate 18 people in nine luxurious suites.
Life on board Prana by Atzaro has something to keep even the most active adventure seeker happy. Learn to scuba dive with the yacht’s resident dive instructor or take a leisurely drift snorkel across volcanic vents. Alternatively, launch sea kayaks and paddle boards to explore the jungle-draped coastlines or get your thrills wakeboarding and water-skiing around the calmest of lagoons. Fishing equipment is also supplied along with towable floats for effortless fun.
Or for those just looking to relax, 4 spacious decks with king size daybeds offer abundant places to retreat to. A yoga deck doubles as an open-air cinema and Prana’s main deck has inside and outside living and a luxury spa.
Designed with the utmost luxury, Prana by Atzaro is fully soundproofed and the suites are decorated with sumptuous vintage fabrics and contemporary linens in a sophisticated palette. Prana by Atzaro offers more space and comfort than any other Phinisi, with all the super deluxe mod cons of a lavish five-star hotel. There is one lavish master suite and eight further suites on-board.
The 18-man crew includes a Cruise Director, Dive Instructor, several chefs, stewards and expert spa therapists; all on hand to deliver a seamless experience and to ensure all your needs are met.
With fine dining, unlimited water sports, on-board spa treatments, unforgettable diving and the chance to visit some of the world’s most beautiful heritage sites, ‘Prana by Atzaro’ encapsulates a perfect unison between ancient craftsmanship and contemporary luxury.
The cuisine on-board, carefully created by the yacht’s chef, includes both Asian Fusion and Western dishes. Everything is made from the freshest, local ingredients and served by discreet staff alfresco under the stars, in the cool of the air-conditioned on-board dining room or, Robinson-Crusoe style, on a powder white sandy beach under shady parasols. After dinner you can relax at the open-air cinema or indulge in a pampering spa treatment. In the morning, as the wind catches the sails, take a yoga class on the topmost deck – sun salutations will never be the same again.
