Vela is one of the few charter yachts available with two master cabins above deck, offering uninterrupted views of the stunning islands as they pass by.
Every detail onboard Vela has been crafted with the goal of creating a refreshing feel. Light colors with neutral accents bring the outside indoors, creating a breath of fresh air throughout. Six elegant suites await with space for up to 12 guests and two children. Two master cabins are uniquely situated above deck, one on the main deck while the other sits atop the bridge, benefitting from a private terrace to allow the morning sun to greet you as you sip your morning coffee and prepare for another fantastic day exploring the islands.
The remaining cabins are located below deck, furnished with luxurious Italian fabrics and locally, sustainably sourced teak furniture. Each suite features its own private ensuite, decorated in terracotta produced in Ubud, marble accents and Philippe Starck-designed fittings.
Dining and Relaxing
Vela’s executive chef and his team are ready to welcome you, offering the most delectable local dishes, while also catering to any and all dietary requirements, or Western menu requests. They will curate meals according to your group’s preferences while utilizing fresh and local ingredients. From how you take your morning coffee, to your favorite nightcap and every meal and snack in between, Vela’s crew is ready to wow you with their service and attention to detail.
With an abundance of space available throughout, whether you want to enjoy your meals in the formal dining room, barefoot on the beach under the stars, or on the ample foredeck taking in the passing sights, is up to you.
Explore the Undiscovered
No trip to Indonesia is complete without getting up close and personal with its unique marine biodiversity. No two dives are ever the same and adventurous guests may gaze in wonder at the sight of manta rays, sea turtles and sharks while marine photographers will notice seahorses, mantis shrimps and nudibranchs hidden in pristine coral gardens. Vela’s qualified dive instructors are trained to help beginners achieve their PADI certification onboard and a nitrox compressor allows experienced divers to make the most of each dive and shorten surface intervals.
For those that prefer to explore above the water, a plethora of water toys await. A crew member will be happy to take you waterskiing or wakeboarding behind the tender to find quiet bays hidden from view. When it’s time to slow down, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards are available for scenic tours or to head onto the beach for a little sunbathing and exploring.
A Personalized Experience
Vela’s fantastic crew prides itself on its unrivaled local knowledge and being able to put together the perfect itinerary for your group. Whether you want to spend your days diving, seeking out the marine life that calls this place home, enjoying land-based excursions like hiking and bird watching, or taking in a massage or other wellness service provided by the crew, Vela and her crew have you covered.
