Si Datu Bua is an exclusive yacht built in traditional Indonesian ‘Phinisi’ style.

Offering understated elegance and exquisite cuisine, Si Datu Bua transports you to some of Indonesia’s remotest islands and majestic scenery.

With three individual and beautifully appointed cabins, Si Datu Bua offers a highly personalised journey. All cabins are ensuite with hot water showers and air conditioning, an abundance of space and traditional furnishings. The cuisine on board is exquisite and tailored to your tastes – enjoy your meals served by your personal butler either on the al fresco deck or on a deserted beach.

With two tenders and a highly professional, Indonesian crew of 11, including a dive master, private chef and expedition leader, there is flexibility for guests varying interests to be catered for. Some may wish to explore the wealth of underwater life, others to kayak through mysterious caves and others to venture on land to trek to scenic vistas. The group can reconvene for sunset cocktails on deck served with fresh sashimi or canapés.

Groups hoping to delve deeper into the rich cultural heritage can request the attendance of Patti Seery, Si Datu Bua’s owner. With over 25 years’ experience living and working throughout Indonesia, Patti offers an unsurpassed knowledge of the islands and their varying cultures.
