Alila Purnama, Asia
Alila Purnama, translated as The Full Moon, is the most luxurious liveaboard Phinisi ship in Asia, providing ultra-modern and relaxing accommodation for up to ten guests. The 46- metre-long Alila Purnama consists of three decks and has been built by hand in the traditional style of a Phinisi, as used by the Bugis seafarers from south Sulawesi in Indonesia.
In keeping with Alila’s emphasis on style and sustainability, the furniture throughout the ship is custom-made from teak, rattan and other locally sourced materials from Indonesia. Onboard are five well-appointed cabins including one master suite, designed to indulge guests further with large wraparound windows offering 180-degree views of the ever-changing yet incredible landscape. Alila Purnama also has its own fully licensed PADI dive centre, spa therapist and plenty of space for wining, dining and relaxing while enjoying the sea breeze.
