If like me you did not know what a Phinisi is let me tell you it is a two masted traditional Indonesian sailing boat built entirely of ironwood and teak using to customary construction methods
At just over 55 metres overall, Prana is a beautiful handbuilt boat and in her class is the biggest in the world.
What makes her launch exciting is that she has been commissioned by the founders of the world-famous Ibiza hotel group Atzaro, and is now available for charter in Indonesia
“Prana is a spectacular new extension to the Atzaro brand,” says Victor Guasch, founder and CEO of the Atzaro Group
he adds, “After many years of developing Atzaro to be Ibiza’s number one luxury spa hotel, we are really excited to be expanding the group into Indonesia with the launch of Prana by Atzaro, our beautiful new Phinisi yacht. The yacht encapsulates our philosophy of natural luxury, offering our guests impeccable service, lavish design and the chance to experience the stunning natural beauty of Indonesia’s marine parks.”
Designed with the utmost luxury, ‘Prana by Atzaro’ offers guests space and comfort in nine elegant suites, each with their own private ensuite bathrooms. Fully soundproofed the suites are decorated with sumptuous vintage fabrics and contemporary linens in a sophisticated palette.
Prana offers more space and comfort than any other Phinisi, with all the super deluxe mod cons of a lavish five star hotel. There are one lavish master suite and eight further suites on-board.
Oversized gangways and 4 spacious decks with king size daybeds offer abundant places to retreat and relax.
A yoga deck doubles as an open-air cinema and Prana’s main deck has inside and outside living, a luxury spa, a water sports deck and a further suite.
A crew of 18 includes a Cruise Director, Dive Instructor, several chefs, stewards and expert spa therapists; all on hand to deliver a seamless experience and to ensure all your needs are met.
With fine dining, unlimited water sports, on-board spa treatments, unforgettable diving and the chance to visit some of the world’s most beautiful heritage sites, ‘Prana by Atzaro’ encapsulates a perfect unison between ancient craftsmanship and contemporary luxury.
The cuisine on-board, carefully created by the yacht’s chef, includes both Asian Fusion and Western dishes. Everything is made from the freshest, local ingredients and served by discreet staff alfresco under the stars, in the cool of the air-conditioned on-board dining room or, Robinson-Crusoe style, on a powder white sandy beach.
After dinner you can relax at the open-air cinema or indulge in a pampering spa treatment
In the morning, as the wind catches the sails, take a yoga class on the upper deck – sun salutations will never be the same again.
Based in Indonesia, a voyage on Prana is a yacht charter like no other, with the opportunity to explore one of the world’s most exquisite coral reefs at Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or visit the prehistoric caves and primordial tribes on the 1500 islands that make up Raja Ampat.
Voyages criss-cross the Coral Triangle famed for its fantastic reefs and plethora of species as well as some of the most remote and untouched islands on earth. A voyage with Prana offers up an endless flow of incredible experiences.
