Raja Ampat, Indonesia- Reported by D.J. Larsen for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The oceanic view from a private jet pales in comparison to the one that can be captured aboard the Alila Purnama. Alila Hotels and Resorts is set for the maiden voyage of its own luxury wooden Phinisi sailing boat in December 2012, which will take guests on relaxing and tranquil adventures through uncharted waters and amongst the islands of Indonesia.

Aboard this sailing 5 star hotel, guests will have four cabins, all air-conditioned with queen-size beds, en-suite bathrooms with shower, writing desk, separate toilet, and double wardrobes. In addition, there is the master suite, expansively designed with large, wraparound windows offering 270-degree views of the ever-changing yet incredible landscape. Its bathroom features shower, bathtub, two washbasins and an enclosed separate toilet, while a private balcony and large sundeck with daybed and deckchairs provide the ultimate space for relaxation.

Included on this three deck vessel is an experienced 16 member crew, a library, lounge, bar, indoor dining area seating up to 12 people, and plenty of space outside to unwind and enjoy the views. It is also equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi access, enabling guests to upload their trip photos on a daily basis.

Guest who want to get a better view of the ocean have the opportunity to do Open Water Diving with over 16 specialties, including Enriched Air Nitrox, Deep, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Drift and Underwater Naturalist.

For those with a taste for adventure, kayaking, surfing, fishing, snorkeling, visiting local islands and pearl farms are among the many other pursuits the Phinisi offers.
