Silolona

Gwyneth Paltrow was recently on board one of our most favorite yacht charter choices, Silolona Sojourns charter yachts, where she and her famiy cruised in the Komodo Archipelago in Indonesia. In her blog Paltrow raves about the yacht charter experience. The Silolona charter yachts are comprised of the 164’ charter yacht Silolona and the 131’ charter yacht Si Datu Bua available for yacht charter in Indonesia and Myanmar. A yacht charter on board Silolona or Si Datu Bua is not only a great yacht charter experience, with every mega yacht amenity but is also a terrific glimpse into local life and culture in Indonesia or Myanmar.

Built along the traditional lines of an Indonesian Phinisi, both Silolona and Si Datu Bua have all of the modern luxuries on board for a lovely charter on either or both charter yachts in tandem for a large group. Blending into the local culture and area to experience a great slice of local life, both are fully crewed by local Indonesians that offer 5 star service on board, and become your local guides ashore. Explore remote villages and experience cultural ceremonies and dancing. See the Ikat Textiles being hand woven with naturally dyed and spun cotton threads. Walk through the only known habitat of the Komodo Dragon, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hike up the sides of puffing volcanoes, cooling off by a snorkel or scuba dive over beautiful coral gardens, while swimming alongside sea turtles. Fish for Yellow Tin Tuna, made immediately by your Chef into fresh sashimi back on board. And enjoy expanses of isolated beaches great for shelling.
