It has been said by many travellers who have seen the breathtaking wonders of Flores, that the best way to see this magnificent land and appreciate its raw, rugged beauty is by boat.
By being atop a floating vessel, you could slip in and out of islands, dip underwater and explore with over 1000 species of fish and 350 reef building corals whenever you desire before you escape back onto your own private space when you need to unwind. One amazing way to do this is with Aqua Luna Selini, a beautiful and luxurious traditional Indonesian sailboat, also known as the phinisi.
Part of the Selini Group, Aqua Luna Selini means the water moon; the sailboat boasts 5 spacious cabins, all well-equipped and with air-conditioning, two fully-equipped bathrooms with running hot and cold water, toilets and sinks, a kitchen, a dining area and relaxing areas decorated with cushions and throw pillows, perfect for sun-tanning, relaxing and any other calming activities.
Aboard the Aqua Luna, you can be sure that you’ll be experiencing one of the most exhilarating ways to discover the Komodo National Park. Choose from 1 day trips from Labuan Bajo the surrounding islands to 2 days 1 night trips, 3 days 2 nights trips and 4 days 3 nights trips to islands within the Komodo National Park.
Your trips aboard the Aqua Luna would include excursions to Bidadari, Rinca, Padar, Pink Beach, Manta Point, Kalong, Kanawa and Gili Lawa. Snorkel, visit coves, islands and quaint fishing villages from the comforts of the Aqua Luna and let the crew pamper you with meals, drinks and anything else that you may need.
Aqua Luna Selini is part of the Selini Group, also offering a breathtaking villa experience for guests at its Selini On The Hill Villas, a unique 7 villa compound in Labuan Bajo, Flores.
