A yacht holiday is one of the most luxurious, timeless and memorable ways to explore the planet. Unlike the more rushed experience of island hopping, yacht holidays give you an extended period of time to wonder at the beauty of nature, allowing the sounds, smells and sights to really soak in. You may think of it as a yacht expedition too.
Our yacht expeditions will take you on a voyage into the most exclusive, remote and naturally beautiful secrets of South East Asia. So it would be more accurate to call them “luxpeditions“. Served with exceptional comfort, superior flexibility and new exotic islands each day; you’ll fall into Islander luxpeditions at first try. Your every need will be attended to by a professional crew; handpicked to provide the highest quality service and safety.
Islander also promises you the very best of itineraries, put together based on our extensive knowledge of the region. We have sailed across the most stunning islands in Thailand, Indonesia and Burma. So we’ll share with you the location of the best beaches, astonishing viewpoints and jungle waterfalls only locals know about. Here is just a taste of our special yacht expeditions and luxury sailing holidays.
The jewel in the crown of Indonesia is Raja Ampat. Translated as “Four Kings,” it’s a suitable name; sailing holidays through this magical region of 600+ islands are fit for royalty. It has the highest marine biodiversity recorded on Earth, so perhaps unsurprisingly is rated one of the best snorkelling and diving sites in the world.
Raja Ampat’s land biodiversity is every bit as rich as its ocean environment. Rock islets amidst the crystal waters and bright blue sky in Wayag, Pam and Misool, offer some of the most divine scenery on the planet. With untouched hills covered in orchids and limestone cliffs jutting around hidden bays, it’s rugged, raw and a completely unique experience. The term “luxpeditions” was virtually invented for Raja Ampat expedition.Komodo National Park
Few places in the world can match the cultural and natural diversity found on the islands of Komodo Park: towering volcanoes, dry savannah landscapes, quiet coastal villages, emerald seas, pink sand beaches, tribal rituals, and the infamous Komodo Dragons.
