A big shout out to G and Lisa for being amazing cruise directors. Crew: BEST CREW!!! Idy is the greatest divemaster we had the pleasure to dive with. He is attentive, safety orientated and knowledgeable. Anto and Kadek made our dining experience a total joy. Food: Excellent, very yummy! The kitchen staff was wonderful even about little things like no garlic in my vegetables 😉
Our slogan, “the Boutique Liveaboard”, expresses our vision of providing the highest quality in everything we do – from diving to dining, from our leisure activities to our exquisite accommodations – and, above all, providing outstanding service at all times to our guests.
As an example of this philosophy, we offer our guests the choice of both comfortable indoor and outdoor areas for relaxing and dining. During meals, there is always an extensive selection of dishes and a tantalizing list of fine wines. When resting in between dives, our guests have the possibility of indulging themselves in a relaxing massage on deck.
All amenities are provided for your well-being and we aim to offer a truly exceptional service to all on-board: you are all our special and honoured guests. In this respect, we believe that individual service with a personal touch makes all the difference. This personalized service, and the attention given to even the minute details of all aspects of our operations, are what differentiate the Arenui from conventional liveaboards.
Come discover for yourself the intimate, luxurious and warm atmosphere unique to the Arenui!
In keeping with our “boutique” philosophy, we have applied the same attention to details when designing our food service. From the setting to the decor and choice of dishes, we aim to offer you a dining experience unlike any other liveaboard experience.
Our food is plentiful, fresh, and centered on local and flown-in ingredients. Our internationally trained chefs add their own touch of magic, drawing inspiration from local and international cuisine. In addition to mouth-watering buffet spreads, we also offer a-la-carte choices with daily menu changes.
Even lovers of fine dining are sure to discover new taste experiences.
RELAX ON BOARD
Make the most of your non-diving time and indulge yourself! We’ve included a full range of massage and spa treatments on the Arenui with exactly this in mind.
You’ll even have a choice of location to enjoy your luxury treatment; relax in seclusion under the Spa Tent or why not ‘be at one with the elements’ out on the deck where you can listen to the tranquil sounds of the sea splashing on the hull.
For those who are looking for simpler pleasures, there are also deck chairs and sun loungers on the sundeck as well as in the outdoor lounge. We recommend taking some time to lie back and soak up some rays, or sip a cocktail, while watching the sun descend below the horizon across the calm waters of the Indonesian archipelago.
A variety of other activities are also available to help you forget all your cares and revitalize your body,
mind and spirit.
We offer a range of leisure and recreational facilities such as 2 person kayaking, visits to local villages and trekking across the island wilderness.
At the Arenui we aim to provide every comfort necessary to make you feel as at home as possible during your time with us. These amenities include a first-rate library with an excellent collection of books on the local area and marine life, as well as a diverse selection of all those books you’ve always wanted to read but have been saving for your next holiday! To cater to different tastes we have over 100 movies to choose from, to watch in the lounge area or, for those with an individual DVD player, in the privacy of your own cabin.
Given the stunning dive sites and topside landscapes, Indonesia is a photographers’ dream destination. As such, we are pleased to have had many professional photographers onboard. Nowadays, it seems everyone is a budding photographer so we are fully equipped to cater to this aspect of the diving experience. In the back of the restaurant and lounge area we have 2 computers setup for both PC and MAC systems (with photo editing software).
There are charging stations for all your equipment, extension cords and adaptors to cater to different systems and plenty of table space for using your own laptops, plus our experienced cruise directors will be happy to assist with most of your photo and computer needs during the cruise. For a bit of extra advice and tutoring, why not join on of our special ‘photo-cruises’, with pros onboard, which run throughout the year.
