Of the 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, 16,000 are uninhabited and sailing yachts Lamima and Mutiara Laut can deliver to you pretty much any of them.
Bali however, the most developed of the islands, is also where most international flights land. Enveloped by the richest seas in the world, the island is populated with volcanoes, tropical forests, unrivalled culture and some of the best hotels the world has to offer. Bali is well worth a visit before stepping aboard the 65.2m Lamima or the 46m Mutiara Laut, or taking a private jet to Raja Ampat where your yacht will meet you.
If you are craving authentic Bali, head north to the cultural heart, Ubud, where you will find the finest of five star hotels which blend seamlessly into the vibrant landscape. There really is no better way to start your day than a sunrise yoga session at the fabulous Maya Ubud, followed by an impressive breakfast buffet and a day of lounging by your own private pool or one of their two infinity pools set amongst the rainforest.
On quite the opposite end of the spectrum is Stone House, a charming boutique B&B oozing in character. Conceived from a lifelong passion for interior design and all things beautiful, owners Wendy and Walker, have created a magical oasis where the natural wilderness and Asian antiques take centre stage. Offering you absolute privacy, three exceptionally designed individual suites and gracious staff to make sure your stay is totally flawless, Stone House is an undiscovered Ubud secret and the epitome of understated luxury.
With vegetarian restaurants, juice bars, back to back yoga and world class spas, Ubud is all about the mind, body and soul. The multi award-winning spa at Kayumanis is second to none. Sitting up high above the Agung River and surrounded by towering cinnamon trees, the natural surrounding of the jungle presents the idyllic setting for the ultimate relaxing massage. All about privacy, this discrete and intimate hideaway encompasses 23 butler-serviced pool villas.
A stay in Seminyak must be done in as much style as the world famous beach clubs and bars that line the southwest cost of Bali. One Eleven is every bit the luxurious home in which you'd chose to spend your time ashore. Designed to be a discrete sanctuary with personalised service, their phenomenal ultra-modern private villas with 14m pools offer guests an incomparable standard of luxury living. Just a short stroll from town will give you that dose of hustle and bustle, but also the solitude of feeling completely cut off from the troubles of the outside world.
The southern tip of Bali is where vibrant temples meet the stunning turquoise coastline of any surfer’s paradise, and where you can convene with your yacht. Before heading aboard, a rustic seafood meal on Jimbaran beach is an essential. A short walk from the bay is Jamahal Private Resort & Spa, a small award-winning boutique resort offering secluded villas, an excellent spa and second to none fine dining and room service.
