“Ombak Putih is a charming Indonesian schooner with a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. Guests on board benefit from 400 square metres of communal space across two decks, including a sun deck and partially covered decks with comfortable loungers. For those wishing to venture into the water, complimentary snorkelling equipment and sea canoes are available.”
Set sail aboard Ombak Putih, a 42m traditional Indonesian schooner purpose-built by Buginese ship-builders in Kalimantan. Painstakingly remodelled in 2015, this vessel is a blend of old and new with sun decks, sea canoes and a spacious salon.
Its 12 superior cabins, sleeping up to 24 passengers, are stylish and comfortable making ingenious use of space, each with its own porthole. Interiors are air-conditioned and fitted with warm teak wood, they include en-suite bathrooms and USB charging ports.
Talented galley-chefs conjure both international dishes and regional delicacies using fresh ingredients sourced from passing fishermen and local markets. Guests can dine indoors in the stylish salon or above deck for some spectacular views.
The Ombak Putih offers tour itineraries to a number of secluded gems, including Komodo, Flores, Raja Ampat and Suma. Relax on the sun deck, snorkel in azure waters, hike up active volcanoes, visit pristine beaches or drift off above deck under the stars.
