“The experience on Salila was nothing short of fantastic. All the crew worked in a very professional and friendly manner. At all times, they were very attentive and were always willing to help and assist if I or the team needed anything. The way in which all the crew worked was a direct reflection of the cruise Director Emi who spend many long hours working tirelessly insuring that all the needs of the production were met. I cannot speak highly enough about her, her efforts along with the crew made our job and task so much easier and seamless.”

“Thanks a lot for your kind help with the charter in Indonesia. When we got there, we understood how difficult it was for you to find a yacht there! But everything worked perfect. Emi is the Treasure of Salila. That goes without saying. She was our good angel for the whole trip. And she was perfect in anything she did. She was amazing. The crew was also always friendly and ready to help!”
-Salila Charter Guest
“Our Salila adventure through Komodo was memorable for all the right reasons. I loved the ship and felt like we really could go safely anywhere on the planet in comfort. The cabins were ultra spacious and luxurious. With so many living areas and quiet spots, one could always find a bit of serenity and privacy somewhere on the boat. The staff were friendly and helpful - especially the hostess Emy. The tenders have no equal - cruising from one activity to the next in a 7.5m RIB with twin 115s is the only way to motor. I highly recommend it. I had a great trip through Komodo and our dive masters were awesome too.”
-Salila Charter Guest
“It was so great and nice and all management are good and people are all very nice. Especially one guy who was swimming with me for one hour. In future, if I want to go any place of the world, you can always arrange trip for me, right? Look forward to meeting you again.”
