Have you hear how it’s like to explore the breathtaking Komodo National Park inside a luxury liveaboard Komodo?
With its crystal clear waters, pink beaches, pristine natures, and jagged islands scattered across the sea, Flores’ Komodo National Park is a sight of behold. Located in Flores, Eastern Nusa Tenggara, he Komodo National Park (which named after its ancient resident ‘Komodo dragons’) is an archipelago made up of over 80 islands. The rarely inhabited region is part of the Coral Triangle, boasting impressive marine diversity on earth, which come only second to the more remote Raja Ampat of Papua.
Untouched by mass development (thanks to its national park and UNESCO World Heritage status), Komodo has long dubbed as one of he last hidden paradise on earth and world’s best-kept secret. Just imagine Bali in the ’70s, where the beaches were not lined up with busy beach bars and the rest of the island were covered by lush greens. As destinations are scattered among islands and the water in betweens, sailing ship become the most convenient accommodation—allowing travelers and divers alike to access the far-flung sites without having to return to shore. Now, we basically have three kind of boats in Komodo; basic budget, mid-range liveaboard, and the lux. While the two first options are cost-efficient, they don’t necessarily give the best comfort nor the greatest experience possible. Here’s how your short sailing life would be inside a luxury liveaboard Komodo.
