Days 1 — 5

Cruising Komodo

You’ll be met on arrival on Komodo and taken aboard your traditionally styled phinisi yacht, where your captain and crew await. For the next five days, sail the stunning Lesser Sunda Islands, diving on bustling coral gardens, kayaking into caves and snorkelling through mangroves. The marine life here is astounding – from manta rays, turtles, sharks and giant trevally to a rainbow of reef fish, seahorses and octopuses.

Days 5 — 6

A night in Bali

You’ll need to spend at least one night in Bali between your yacht charter and Sumba, but there are worse places for a logistical stopover than the lush stepped paddies of Ubud and the elegant tents at Capella. During your brief stay – which we can always extend – enjoy idyllic rural views on a guided cycle ride, seasonal sustainable dining and Capella’s spa.

Days 6 — 10

Sumba Island

Fly from Bali east to the island of Sumba, a place visited by very few tourists that’s home to one of the very best eco-hotels in the world – Nihi Sumba. Your unique villa, one of 32, is tucked into the rainforest on the edge of a beautiful stretch of beach where rugged luxury meets unregulated freedom.
