Alexa Private Cruise

Discover Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, and the isles of the Indonesia archipelago, as well as trekking to sight the elusive Komodo Dragons in a unique tour specially designed by Asia World Indonesia – the “12 days/11 nights Bali & Komodo Combo in Style with Alexa Private Cruise”.

You start your journey in Ubud, the artistic and cultural centre of Bali, where you discover its charms and rich culture, as well as its hospitable people and their lifestyle.  During your days in Ubud you can also go on optional tours.

One is “Follow in my Food Steps”, a cooking course that helps you discover the way of life of the Balinese through their cooking and traditional dishes. Or go on the “Ubud Exploration and Semana High Tea” with visits to the various attractions of Bali and ends with tea in a luxurious tent in Semana Village, surrounded by nature.

Adventure on the high seas begins with the cruise to the many islands in the Indonesian archipelago with the highlight to Rinca Island where the elusive Komodo Dragon makes its home and to the Komodo National Park.

The cruise is on your own private traditional Indonesian Phinisi sailing vessel “Alexa”. This is an exclusive and unique sailing boat built in 2013, and has been restored and refurbished into a luxuriously stylish yacht that is perfect for exploring islands like Komodo, Sumba, Flores, Sumbawa or Sulawesi in laidback style.

Alexa will sail through various islands such as Sebayor and Padar. The highlight is the beautiful Pink Beach, so called because of its colour, a result of crushed red coral blended with fine white sand, to snorkel or dive. Rangers here will take you to search for the legendary Komodo Dragon.

If no dragons are spotted then the visit to Rinca Island may produce better results as this dry, rugged island is home to these mighty creatures, apart from a diverse rich wildlife.

Visits to more islands for diving and snorkelling before the cruise ends in Seminyak beach, famous for its breathtaking sunsets, beach clubs, designer boutiques, spas and countless restaurants. You can relax here before catching your flight or spend time exploring more of Bali through Asia World Indonesia’s optional tours.

You could go on the “Inspiring Central Bali“, an experience available only to Asia World’s guests. The journey includes lunch amidst the pristine rice terrace of Jatiluwih and cocktails to watch the spectacular sunset over the Tanah Lot temple and the Indian Ocean.

Or see more of Bali on the “Combo of Uluwatu Temple, Deep Relaxation Massage, and Candlelight Dinner at Sundara.”  You spend the day visiting one of the most beautiful temples in Bali, unwinding to soothing a deep relaxation massage, and ending with dinner of steak and seafood at Sundara Restaurant on Jimbaran Bay, touted as Bali’s most sophisticated dining experiences.

This special Bali & Komodo Combo experience is our featured tour in this News Bulletin. Please see the programme for details of the tour.
