Following the launch of the Aman Tokyo in December last year, the Aman Group is set to provide another intimate travel experience for its guests through the Amandira in April, a custom-built 52-meter two-masted Phinisi sailing vessel that will meander around Indonesia's Komodo National Park and Raja Ampat in West Papua. Serving as an addition to Amanwana’s on-water offerings, Amandira -- named after the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ and dira which means ‘intrepid’ -- offers three spacious cabins, a foredeck where guests can relax on sun loungers, an indoor lounge, a library/entertainment room, a total of 14 crew and dive facilities that include the use of nitrox, allowing longer dive times for experienced divers. Able to travel under sail as well as by motor, the Amandira can be chartered in tandem with Aman's first custom-built coastal cruiser Amanikan, accommodating a total of up to 14 guests. Expeditions aboard Amandira include the seven-night Komodo Expedition which explores the UNESCO-protected Komodo National Park, cruising through the Nusa Tenggara island chain to Rinca and Komodo where the infamous Komodo dragon can still be found; and the five- or seven-night Raja Ampat Expedition renowned for its biodiversity that encompasses over 40,000 square kilometers in the northeastern seas of the Indonesian Archipelago. Founded in 1988, the Aman Group operates up to 26 luxury resort properties under the Aman brand in 18 countries, including Indonesia, where each features locally sourced materials to reflect the resort’s natural surroundings and the traditions of local cultures. - See more at: http://www.jakpost.travel/news/amandira-to-sail-to-komodo-and-raja-ampat-in-april-cNXmEwbLMySBC8lH.html#sthash.xejssAf8.dpuf
