Aqua Blu

Your journey

Aqua Blu and NIHI Sumba have collaborated to offer an exclusive chartered voyage and resort stay in 2021 and 2022. Aqua Blu will whisk you between the wild islands of the UNESCO-listed Komodo National Park, its launch boats bringing you enviably close to nature. Your adventure is rounded off in beachfront bliss with a stay at award-winning NIHI Sumba eco-resort, whose signature spa treatments, surf-perfect waves and swimming horses are the stuff of legend.

This all-inclusive private charter is tailored to you. Beginning in Bali, your first port of call might be Moyo, a remote, hilly island that is mostly uninhabited. Keep an eye out for rare tropical birds, macaques, barking deer and more within its forests, and dive to the shallow Angel Reef off its west coast, which teems with marine life. Hop to the sites of Batu Moncho Bay and Gili Lawah for more underwater exploration. You may spot manta rays, giant trevallies and barracudas. On Padar island, hike up the sweep of hills for a spectacular sunrise, then visit the Komodo dragon’s favourite haunts via nimble skiffs. As your Aqua Blu voyage draws to a close, transfer to NIHI Sumba. The next few days at this eco-luxe resort promise a bounty of bespoke activities; dine under the stars, go mountain biking in the jungle, enjoy indulgent spa treatments and leap into the crystalline waters of Weekuri lake. It’s an idyllic end to your far-flung adventure.

“NIHI Sumba is barefoot luxury at its peak. For both the active and those who live to remain horizontal, the resort has you covered. You can surf the sought-after waves of Occy’s Left, ride – or even swim with – the horses which roam the beach, hike to deserted waterfalls, melt into bliss with a Nihioka Spa ‘safari’ and... the list of activities goes on. 

“At the end of each day, everyone gathers at the beach bar to watch the surfers catch their last waves, convening in celebration as the sun slips into the ocean. There is no place you would rather be.”  – Louis Gergaud, senior travel specialist

  • About

Aqua Blu is a luxury expedition vessel with naval pedigree. This stylish, streamlined ship was originally built as a British Royal Navy survey vessel, before being converted for commercial charters. It retains its naval-grade seafaring prowess, however, and is one of the only ships plying Indonesia’s eastern seas all year round. 

Embark on one of Aqua Blu’s exclusive Indonesia itineraries, exploring anywhere from the historic Spice Islands to karst-strewn Raja Ampat. As you do so, enjoy five-star luxury and the services of an expert crew throughout. On-board equipment for snorkelling, diving and water sports allows you to make the most of the tropical waters, whilst launch speedboats enable shore excursions to remote, pristine islets.

The ship’s exterior spaces afford you plenty of scenic vantage points. Soak up the rays on the expansive sun deck or unwind in the outdoor social spaces, as the brows of distant islands emerge on the twinkling horizon. When you wish to retreat from the elements, there is an elegant indoor lounge bar, library and TV room. 15 suites accommodate up to 30 guests across the ship’s five decks. These individually designed en-suite cabins – featuring an elegant brass-and-ivory theme – offer the ultimate in modern comfort during your voyage.
