Dewi Nusantara - Indonesia LiveaboardInquiry
Why you should choose Dewi Nusantara:
They have so many core repeat clients and fantastic reviews, very experienced crew with outstanding service, run by one of the pioneers in Indonesia. There is the Stunning Master and Commander suite and 7 other Deluxe cabin for a maximum of 16 guests on a huge ship which is why it is 1 of the most popular Liveaboards in the area and definitely worth the extra price.
Dewi Nusantara's interior style is that of a "floating boutique resort" featuring the high end amenities guests expect from a boat of this standard.
Catering to a maximum of 18 divers all of the state rooms are larger than traditional liveaboard state rooms (at 180 sq. ft. each, more than 60% larger than an average liveaboard cabin) each cabin has private ensuite facilities and air conditioning.
There is also a 470 square foot "Master and Commander Suite " at the stern of the main deck that features a king size bed, separate sitting area with a sofa, and table with chairs that reminds guests of the "captains quarters" from the schooner design that inspired her.
Living aboard Dewi Nusantara is as close to a five star experience as is possible in the faraway corners of the Indonesian archipelago.
With an overall length of 57 meters, this three masted topsail schooner moves with a grace and stability that only larger sailing vessels can offer.
There are eight spacious air-conditioned staterooms, that can be adapted to either twin or double use, each with its own en suite bathroom.
The master and commanders’ cabin aft is the size of a large hotel suite.
According to the vessel's managing partner, Guido Brink, "Our goal was to build the finest liveaboard yacht in the region and then put it in the best diving locations during the best diving season for that area."

All furniture was specifically designed and manufactured by designer Bruno Helgen.
The layout of the suite, the light, the view gives the immediate feeling that you never want to leave.
The Master Suite has one king size bed and it's own en-suite bathroom offers a shower as well as a bath with ocean view.
The suite has its own sitting area; a large corner sofa with a table made out of one piece of natural shaped teak.

These air conditioned staterooms are all individually designed by Bruno Helgen, a french top interior designer.
On entering each of the Staterooms you will be surprised by its sheer size (20 square meters), unique colour setting and mysterious carvings.
The curved shapes of the furniture and bathroom wall refer the feminine character of the ship, she is after all the Goddess of the Archipelago.
