Unforgettable and unique experience !
Definitely to recommend for a magical gateway. The staff was incredibly welcoming, the boat was fully equipped and very clean. You can even have Wi-Fi if you needed.
To recommend to anyone that would go cruise in a total relaxing way.
I have been on beautiful boats but this was exquisite. Space for the kids to run around and explore on the deck and I didn’t feel cramped at all in the cabin. The swimming and snorkelling in the beautiful waters and choosing fresh lobster for the evening’s meal as the sun went down will be cherished memories for our family for the years to come. Thanks so much for having us and sorry about screaming when I saw the Komodo dragons!! Lindy
Nyaman Boat was absolutely incredible from start to finish. A small group of us rented the entire boat for 4 nights in September 2019. We are well-traveled New Yorkers with high expectations and were very impressed. After reading many horror stories online, we were hesitant to book/pay in advance for any boat and were planning to just show up in Labuan Bajo and find a boat that we liked. Luckily, we stumbled onto Nyaman boat on Airbnb a week or so in advance and it had great reviews, so we felt confident that it was legit.
The boat itself was extremely nice and spacious. There were multiple decks/terraces with options for shade or sun. Cabins were very comfortable and the entire boat was spotless. Nyaman boat was one of the nicest and biggest boats we saw on the water (out of hundreds of boats). It has a casual, approachable luxury feel to it. The boat could probably hold 12 or so guests comfortably.
The staff of 10 was amazing - super friendly, attentive, anticipatory service. They take care of everything (bringing coolers to the beach for you, cleaning your snorkels, having fresh towels and drinks ready for you after a swim, etc.) The food was a major highlight. The chef works some serious magic in the kitchen. Be sure to specify western food or Indonesian ahead of time. Both were delicious and very generous portions. We had western for the first 2 days but really wanted Indonesian food and asked to switch which they accommodated happily. Her meals were by far the best we had during 3 weeks of travel. Be sure to stock up on spirits or wine if that's your thing. We were allowed to use the blender to make whatever drinks we wanted. Beer was available on board to purchase. They had chips and other items available for snacking.
The Komodo islands and waters around Flores are drop dead gorgeous. The pink beach / Padar island is one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. Diving and snorkeling were out of this world - especially diving at Manta Point. Nyaman boat arranges all diving with the iDive company who were awesome. Everything was seamless and easy.
Overall this was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had! Highly recommend the Nyaman boat. I can't wait to go back.
We had an incredible time during our 7 days trip aboard Nyaman boat which took us to the most exclusive divining and snorkelling spots in Komodo National Park. The crew was the best I have ever seen on a boat - extremely welcoming, efficient and helpful, yet discreet at the same time. It is hard to believe just how much you can pamper yourself in the midst of the Flores sea!!! As soon as you get back from a diving or snorkelling excursion, Anissa, the Chef on the boat, is already spoiling you with another home made pastry and choice of healthy snacks. It is literally impossible to think of a more exclusive and welcoming environment for a sailing holiday.
Nyoman boat recruited a top notch diving instructor for our cruise, with whom we passed our open water and advanced divers`certificates. The cruise itinerary was extremely well prepared and took us to the best diving and natural spots on the island. On our final night abord Nyaman boat the crew arranged for an uninhabited island to be turned into a candlelit dinner picnic. It was by far the most beautiful dinner spot I have seen during my stay in Indonesia.
The boat is comfortable enough for 7 couples, offering resting space at the upper deck and a lounge next to the dining space. It is very well equipped to host diving adepts while offering a 5 star standard of comfort, spacious rooms with en-suite bathrooms, unlimited hot water for showering after each dive and exquisite menu composed with a French touch.
I would recommend this cruise to groups of friends and families who are looking for unforgettable memories to take back home from the Komodo islands.
Where to begin? Our journey started in Labuan Bajo (Flores) where we boarded a traditional 100-feet traditional Indonesian boat. Not that traditional in the end: cabins are very comfortable, recently refurbished. Sizewise it suited perfectly our group of 8 pax: an additional upper deck allows for resting in between 2 dives. Service on board is second to none, excellent meals combining local cuisine with a french touch, get ready for delicious seafood and romantic dinners on the beach. The menu was composed by Chef Stephane. Chapeau !
An adorable crew is relentlessly dedicated to your well-being over as well as under water. The dive instructor was top notch and some dive spots are truly spectacular! Definately an
incredible experience for both divers and
non-divers who can snorkle with mantas and
pay a visit to the Komodo dragons. You can
book your next trip with Nyaman boat eyes
