Arenui Liveaboard

The Arenui is a traditional and magnificent Phinisi – a classic Indonesian wooden sailing vessel – set to explore the majestic underwater world of the Indonesian archipelago. She has been designed to host a maximum of 16 passengers in 8 exceptionally spacious cabins. The cabins all feature individual themes and styles inspired by handicrafts from each of the Indonesian provinces. Each cabin has a private en-suite bathroom, individual air conditioning, a king-size bed or roomy single beds and a distinct lounge area that guarantees maximum comfort. Arenuiā€™s main deck features 2 Master cabins (Rama and Shinta) and 2 Deluxe cabins (Barong and Ganesh), plus the galley, the dive deck and the spacious lounge and restaurant that reaches across the full width of the vessel. On the lower deck there are 4 Deluxe cabins (Garuda, Legong, Toraja and Dayak).

On the skydeck you’ll find the sky restaurant and sun-bathing area, the wheelhouse and the raised sky lounge that stretches across the back half of the boat. The sky restaurant is a perfect place for al fresco meals and watching the changing Indonesian landscapes. The sky lounge is a favourite spot with most guests. In addition to an outdoor shower for cooling off and a wooden bar for drinks, the sky lounge features day-beds and benches all fitted with high-quality, thick mattresses for ultimate comfort. On the skydeck there are spaces open to the elements for the sun-lovers but also a large canopy for shade.
