Adorned by exquisite scenery, the Indonesian archipelago is awash with nature’s finest mountains, waterfalls, flora, and fauna.  During AYANA Lako di’as two, three or five-night cruises, the luxury yacht will be visiting some of Komodo Island’s most famous landmarks including a port of call to the home of the Komodo dragon.

Offshore, the azure waters are a dive lover’s paradise. Famed as one of the world’s best dive spots, and suitable for year-round diving, there is a plethora of underwater activity to captivate both novice and experienced underwater explorers. Unlike traditional Indonesia cruising, AYANA Lako di’a will be visiting remote dive spots and underwater wonderlands frequented by relatively few divers. These secret dive spots offer guests the opportunity to explore rare aquatic species, swim with manta rays and dive amongst coral gardens, all with crystal water clarity. Snorkeling, SUP Yoga, Trawling, and Dolphin Watching are just a sample of the additional water activities available to guests.
