Explore Indonesia’s Komodo National Park Onboard Amanikan

Luxury resort operator Amanresorts has introduced the Amanikan, a custom-built 32-meter coastal cruiser. Based at the Amanwana resort in the Indonesian island of Moyo, the vessel will host the 2009 Komodo Expedition, a 5-night exploration of the islands and waters of Komodo National Park coupled with a 2-night stay at Amanwana.


Constructed to the specifications and style of a traditional Indonesian wooden vessel known as the Phinisi, the Amanikan is equipped with 3 air-conditioned cabins offering modern amenities to complement the charm of spice trading ships. A large master cabin is located on the upper deck at the stern of the vessel, furnished with a king-sized bed and surrounded by wraparound windows offering panoramic 270° views of the surroundings. There are also 2 other cabins, located on the main deck and equipped with queen-sized beds and private sun decks. Guests enjoy the convenience of ensuite bathrooms with double vanities, wardrobes, showers and separate toilets.


Amanikan’s bow incorporates its main lounging area where guests can gather to sunbathe, enjoy the food and drink or sleep under the stars as the ship sails the waters of Indonesia through the Nusa Tenggera chain of islands. Guests enjoy a variety of activities from snorkelling and diving to the wildlife encounters with buffalo, deer, monkeys, wild horses and the famed Komodo dragons in their natural habitat, before returning to Amanwana.


Featuring 20 air-conditioned hardwood-floor tents, Amanwana is situated in a cove on the western edge of Moyo island overlooking Amanwana Bay and the Flores Sea. Surrounded by lush tropical rainforest, the resort brings guests back to nature, whilst delivering the luxury and comfort synonymous with Amanresorts. An open-air dining room and bar, library, music pavillion, dive center, spa and gift shop are available to guests.


Amanresorts operate 23 world-class properties across the world, including resorts in Bhutan, Cambodia, China, France, French Polynesia, Indonesia, India, Laos, Montenegro, Morocco, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Turks and Caicos Islands, USA and the flagship Amanpuri resort in Phuket, Thailand.
