TESTIMONIALS

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!

All excellent. Essentially, a floating 5-star hotel!!! It was my first time in Indonesia and I thought it was fantastic and great variety of critters and marine life, colors and corals… Crew was top notch. Although I can see Komodo is a busy area, the itinerary was perfect planned and we had a great time. Our dive guide Hery was extremely knowledgeable of the dive sites and could spot all sorts of amazing critters. Cruise director Guillermo was ever present and eager to make all the group super comfortable above and below water. Best food I had on a boat!!! Very flexible with special requests. In my search for the best liveaboard in Indonesia I came across the Arenui a few years ago, but never got around planning a long trip. Finally I was able to find space for the Komodo trip and it paid off big time!!! This was the best diving trip I have taken so far. Despite being a solo traveller I felt very comfortable as the crew did a fantastic job all around. The diving was amazing and we were able to see everything on the wish list!!!!

The Arenui rocks on all dimensions! The crew works well together and is a five-star service. I leave with so many wonderful memories. I boarded the Arenui as an inexperienced diver and now I'm safer, better and a more relaxed diver.

We loved that our wetsuits were waiting before each dive in our personalized space. We are amazed by the gourmet food. The chef and crew are outstanding. Amazing crew! DMs checked to see the conditions were good. Kai’s knowledge about securing a bagan with whale sharks was exceptional. Guido and Vicki will be great cruise directors! Best dive itinerary ever! Furnishings, positive and caring attitude of the crew and level of service exceeds all other liveaboards!

Best Liveaboard I have been on yet! I love the cultural and authentic/natural elements of its structure. As a vegetarian, I am beyond grateful to the kitchen crew for amazing selections healthy options and wonderful flavors. Thank you so much! I know extra effort was involved on my behalf. Amazing crew! Such personable, pleasant Directors so thoughtful and attentive. The service by the stewards was exceptional. And my massage was bliss and professional. - The destination, dive sites and tenders were all excellent. The Tender drivers and dive guides made me feel safe and cared for while diving. My dive guide Harry was patient and provided thoughtful, individualized guidance. Thank you for such a special holiday aboard this beautiful vessel with such talented, hospitable and caring crew. Don’t change a thing! P.S. I’d love to be welcomed aboard again in the future. You never know!

Shinta is very spacious and comfortable to lounge around between dives. Food varieties are good.  Mario & Kadek provided very good service and they are always there to service us on board. Alejandro & Saoirse have made the whole trip remarkable. Ferry (dive master) and the tender drivers provided five star service during the whole diving experience. The level of service is the best I have experienced for the 15 years of diving I have done. The diving was excellent; a good selection of dive sites.

Hands down the best food I have had on a liveaboard! Hats off to chefs & his team. Absolutely everyone were drivers for service with a smile and totally can do. However, I must highlight Fahmi and his infectious personality and leadership underwater, probably my fave dive master! I’d also like to highlight Mario and Kadek, true masters of service! The diving was excellent. Even with the storm the crew was able to provide us with variety. The dives were full of life! Overall what an incredible experience! The diving was spectacular! It was so nice to come ‘home’ to the Arenui after each dive, to a smiling team who was always there for us. A trip that will always be remembered! Thank you crew, thank you Arenui!’
2020
09 Jan / Bernie, USA
Amazing food & beverage. Kudos to the chef and his amazing team! Best food on a liveaboard by far (more than 10 liveaboards for me). Amazing staff, which made for this amazing experience. Fahmi has been my favorite guide of all time (500 dives). His awesome light-hearted personality and underwater expertise very much appreciated. Mario & Kadek were very welcoming and ‘can-do’. Very much appreciated. I love the healthy coral & the variety of diving. Again a big thanks to Fahmi & Saoirse & Alex for the choices, the enthusiasm and the safety.

The boat was excellent. We really liked the bidet hose! Oh yes, the facilities were great. Beds were comfortable and our room (Ganesh was surprisingly spacious). Food  was excellent; I especially like the vegetarian variety.’   The crew was excellent. Alex and Saoirse really made the trip for me. Herry was a fantastic dive master and patient with our slow pace and meticulous hunting. Don’t change anything! We really like the dive sites and variety of life to see. My preference is for reef invertebrates and this trip had them. What can I say? This is our second trip with the Arenui and we’ve just requested our third. Not coming with a group is always a bit of a gamble but the staff and guests were awesome (again)!

27 Dec / Debbie, USA
The boat, the crew and the food choices were all excellent. Anti-chovy & Melissa's Garden super sites! But loved it all – Muck, Mantas, and More! Everyone and everything was really outstanding! You have an attention to detail not many service businesses can achieve! You have created and maintained (for 10 years!) a level of quality and service rarely seen, all while maintaining a very high morale level. Kudos to you and to everyone who makes it possible.

The trip exceeded expectations. Crew was very accommodating. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming. This experience will be hard to top. Every detail was considered on board & on the water. The boat, diving, the crew and the food choice was all excellent. Ferry gave me the confidence I needed to have an unforgettable dive experience. Will miss Arenui!

We loved that our wetsuits were waiting before each dive in our personalized space. We are amazed by the gourmet food. The chef and crew are outstanding. Amazing crew! DMs checked to see the conditions were good. Kai’s knowledge about securing a bagan with whale sharks was exceptional. Guido and Vicki will be great cruise directors! Best dive itinerary ever! Furnishings, positive and caring attitude of the crew and level of service exceeds all other liveaboards!

Best Liveaboard I have been on yet! I love the cultural and authentic/natural elements of its structure. As a vegetarian, I am beyond grateful to the kitchen crew for amazing selections healthy options and wonderful flavors. Thank you so much! I know extra effort was involved on my behalf. Amazing crew! Such personable, pleasant Directors so thoughtful and attentive. The service by the stewards was exceptional. And my massage was bliss and professional. - The destination, dive sites and tenders were all excellent. The Tender drivers and dive guides made me feel safe and cared for while diving. My dive guide Harry was patient and provided thoughtful, individualized guidance. Thank you for such a special holiday aboard this beautiful vessel with such talented, hospitable and caring crew. Don’t change a thing! P.S. I’d love to be welcomed aboard again in the future. You never know!

Excellent boat, history & wood extra plus. Food quantity was excellent, food quality, food choice and beverages were also great. All good!

Shinta is very spacious and comfortable to lounge around between dives. Food varieties are good.  Mario & Kadek provided very good service and they are always there to service us on board. Alejandro & Saoirse have made the whole trip remarkable. Ferry (dive master) and the tender drivers provided five star service during the whole diving experience. The level of service is the best I have experienced for the 15 years of diving I have done. The diving was excellent; a good selection of dive sites.

Hands down the best food I have had on a liveaboard! Hats off to chefs & his team. Absolutely everyone were drivers for service with a smile and totally can do. However, I must highlight Fahmi and his infectious personality and leadership underwater, probably my fave dive master! I’d also like to highlight Mario and Kadek, true masters of service! The diving was excellent. Even with the storm the crew was able to provide us with variety. The dives were full of life! Overall what an incredible experience! The diving was spectacular! It was so nice to come ‘home’ to the Arenui after each dive, to a smiling team who was always there for us. A trip that will always be remembered! Thank you crew, thank you Arenui!’
2020
09 Jan / Bernie, USA
Amazing food & beverage. Kudos to the chef and his amazing team! Best food on a liveaboard by far (more than 10 liveaboards for me). Amazing staff, which made for this amazing experience. Fahmi has been my favorite guide of all time (500 dives). His awesome light-hearted personality and underwater expertise very much appreciated. Mario & Kadek were very welcoming and ‘can-do’. Very much appreciated. I love the healthy coral & the variety of diving. Again a big thanks to Fahmi & Saoirse & Alex for the choices, the enthusiasm and the safety.

All excellent. Essentially, a floating 5-star hotel!!! It was my first time in Indonesia and I thought it was fantastic and great variety of critters and marine life, colors and corals… Crew was top notch. Although I can see Komodo is a busy area, the itinerary was perfect planned and we had a great time. Our dive guide Hery was extremely knowledgeable of the dive sites and could spot all sorts of amazing critters. Cruise director Guillermo was ever present and eager to make all the group super comfortable above and below water. Best food I had on a boat!!! Very flexible with special requests. In my search for the best liveaboard in Indonesia I came across the Arenui a few years ago, but never got around planning a long trip. Finally I was able to find space for the Komodo trip and it paid off big time!!! This was the best diving trip I have taken so far. Despite being a solo traveller I felt very comfortable as the crew did a fantastic job all around. The diving was amazing and we were able to see everything on the wish list!!!!

The boat was excellent. We really liked the bidet hose! Oh yes, the facilities were great. Beds were comfortable and our room (Ganesh was surprisingly spacious). Food  was excellent; I especially like the vegetarian variety.’   The crew was excellent. Alex and Saoirse really made the trip for me. Herry was a fantastic dive master and patient with our slow pace and meticulous hunting. Don’t change anything! We really like the dive sites and variety of life to see. My preference is for reef invertebrates and this trip had them. What can I say? This is our second trip with the Arenui and we’ve just requested our third. Not coming with a group is always a bit of a gamble but the staff and guests were awesome (again)!
2019

The boat, the crew and the food choices were all excellent. Anti-chovy & Melissa's Garden super sites! But loved it all – Muck, Mantas, and More! Everyone and everything was really outstanding! You have an attention to detail not many service businesses can achieve! You have created and maintained (for 10 years!) a level of quality and service rarely seen, all while maintaining a very high morale level. Kudos to you and to everyone who makes it possible.

I loved it so much I want to make it an annual trip. Best dive trip I’ve ever been on. Incredible service! I’ve never had such an easy, carefree trip. So nice to have someone help pull off wetsuits, rinse & hang them & take care of our gear. Dive masters & cruise directors awesome. Jose’s talks added so much to the top. I could look at a reef and know what I was seeing. Really enhanced the experience. Everything was superb. Loved the opportunity to see so many sites and look forward to more trips on Arenui. Kai & Jose are incredible assets to the crew and to our trip. Loved the rapport and camaraderie of the crew. Service across the boat was super!’

The boat. I had plenty of room to suit up. Sky Lounge is a really good place to retreat between dives. Restaurant area fits everyone. Plenty of plugs available for cameras, light & phones. Boat was always clean. Food & Beverage: I took full advantage of the sodas & juices on board. Ronald was excellent as dive master but all helped out. Mario and Kadek took care of every request. Cabin were cleaned and beds made without us being aware - one of the unsung heroes that made the experience well worth cruising again. I can’t say how much I appreciated the help the Tender crew gave.’

Best diving and our dive master, Herry, attentive and so knowledgeable! All of the staff was exceptional! Mario and Kadek were fantastic stewards, used our names the first day and remembered every day what we liked to eat and drink. Our room boys were also amazing! They slipped in and cleaned everything perfectly. We also loved having Jose, the marine biologist, on board. His talks were interesting and informative! Excellent food and service! This was the trip of a lifetime! We booked over two years ago, and it was worth the wait! We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!

Very hard to think of one particular experience since the whole trip has been out of this world. We are particularly grateful to the crew for making such a fuss of us on our honeymoon. This has to be the best choice for any dive-loving newly weds (or about to be weds). What an amazing trip. I honestly can't fault anything/anyone. This is a very special experience in a mind-blowing part of the world. Thank you so much for making our honeymoon amazing. We have had a wonderful time. Thank you! Boat: beautiful vessel, very well maintained. Great balance between excellent amenities and providing a cultured/romantic environment. Diving: the best diving I have done. The knowledge of the guides is second to none. World-class dive sites, like diving in a fish tank. Crew: every single member of crew is amazing!! Professional, friendly, attentive. G and Lisa run a great team. Joni was an exceptional guide, his knowledge and safety made us comfortable from the first dive. Massages from Wenton and Wayan were fantastic. Food: wow! I can't imagine how it could get better the chefs onboard were incredible. What awesome food!

Got to snorkel and play with two mantas on the surface. Biodiversity and health of the reefs the greatest!! Crew: could not be more helpful, kind, courteous, solicitous and attentive!! Every one. Food: my belly had gotten larger.

  Everything about the Arenui says classy while never becoming pretentious. Most important, every single crew member is friendly and kind. Food & Beverage: excellent. I may have lost weight only because the food was both healthy and tasty. Every single person is kind, and the crew are the best part of this trip, which is something considering the incredible diving. First class.

Compliments to the chefs and stewards. Meals were delicious. I was impressed with the way Mario & Kadek remembered our preferences about food and drinks. Special thanks to Herry. This was my first dive without my partner of 20 years. Herry took wonderful care of me on every dive. Also special thanks to Alex & Saoirse who both helped me a lot. The Roomboys did everything perfectly. I had two wonderful massages!! Bottomline, this crew was helpful, well trained, took good care of us, always had a smile and made us laugh! The entire crew was wonderful. The boat tenders took good care of us. Kai and Jose were informative and educational with great sense of humour.

My second trip on the Arenui. On the first trip I didn’t have any expectations so was easily impressed by the beauty of the boat and the trip. I ran on the second trip with high expectations and was again amazed by the staff and attention to detail.

Love Famhi’s (divemaster) love for diving. Appreciate all the time Jose and Kai spent with Simon (new diver) to assist him. Toastie and chicken soup, yum! This adventure exceeded our expectations. One of the great things about travel is finding all those good, loving people in the world. Those people are the Arenui staff.

Vessel: This was the perfect boat for my first liveaboard experience! We could not have had a better time! Diving: What can I say? WOW! Best diving and our dive master, Herry, attentive and so knowledgeable! All of the staff was exceptional! Mario and Kadek were fantastic stewards, used our names the first day and remembered every day what we liked to eat and drink. Our room boys were also amazing! They slipped in and cleaned everything perfectly. We also loved having Jose, the marine biologist, on board. His talks were interesting and informative! Excellent food and service! This was the trip of a lifetime! We booked over two years ago, and it was worth the wait! We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!

Fahmi is a delight, had such a great time with him. Jose is so gracious and enthusiastic. Fery, thanks so much for always hanging my bathing suit. Thanks for stocking burgers and popcorn! Wenton’s massages were great. I hurt my back one day and I really think it was because he fixed it that I was able to continue to dive. Eman, Hasan, Kurniawan were terrific on the tender. Mario is a gem, he and Kadek never missed a detail. Thanks for filling our room fridge with diet coke!

Lisa and G are the greatest!! And Idy was an awesome dive guide. This was our second trip aboard the Arenui and it was exceptional. We have since booked more trips in years to come. Every single member of the crew has made us feel comfortable, safe and tremendously happy. There is attention to detail and meeting the needs of every guest, all while providing a breathtaking view of the beautiful underwater world. All the dives are led by knowledgeable divemasters with keen eyes and the ability to highlight the creatures unique to the area/dive site. The chefs and kitchen staff prepare delicious meals and provide wonderful flexibility for those with specific dietary needs. The Arenui not only provides its guests with a truly awesome diving experience but it also provides a relaxing retreat from a busy world. A heartfelt thanks to every member of the Arenui team for offering us such a memorable vacation!

Thank you for a wonderful time. It was very relaxing while busy. Great excursions to the look out and CAVE and diving was wonderful. Boat: the most luxurious boat I have been on. Well thought out cabins with ample storage. Diving: great guides, they know the sites and marine life. Very good briefings. Crew: a great crew, very attentive and always anticipating our needs. It was nice to see familiar faces (prior trip 2015) and the crew seems to really enjoy what they are doing. Food: excellent food. Exceptional!

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 😉

This was my third time on the Arenui. It is by far one of the best liveaboard experiences in the best part of the diving world - Indonesia. I've been to Bali/Komodo twice and thought diving couldn't be better until I dived Raja Ampat! Diving: the best I've seen!! Crew: crew couldn't do enough for us! They were fantastic!
2017
09 Mar / Janet & Ramsay, USA
Ramsay and I enjoyed our first Arenui experience in June 2013 so much, we came back! We were not disappointed! The Cruise Directors - Debbie & Jerry - are the best we've ever had. Professional, fun and totally engaging. If we come back I would hope to have them as directors. Our last dive - Wednesday March 8 - Pulau Wai. We were waiting for mantas - I turned around to look behind us, in case they were coming from that direction and Ronald our divemaster, had taken off his fins - put them on his hands and was pretending to swim like a manta - he actually DID look like one and made us all laugh under water! What a great guy!! Boat: our second time on the Arenui!! Hopefully our last. As before - the boat was the epitome of luxury liveaboard travels. Clean, roomy, safe and fun. Diving: wonderful diving!! Debbie & Jerry did a great job of getting us to our dive sites, giving great briefings - and making our dive experience memorable and one we would like to do again. Crew: our divemaster - Ronald was wonderful - attentive, always aware of where we were, what was going on around us and looking out for our safety and comfort as well as making the dive experience as exciting and interesting as possible. We will never forget - "masks on!" "position, position!!" "1 - 2 - 3 - go!". Great fun! Food: excellent and plentiful food.

Love this boat - best boat I've ever experienced, well thought out! Loved going to the cave, the hike/view and the village to see the kids, very special. Kudos on labeling towels and small pillow and large pillow/person - very clever. Excellent showers and a good place to put legs for shaving - not just a boys boat! Excellent storage space in room, very functional, great hooks. Five flights from the US and I was thinking "I hope this is good" because it is a LONG way to come - worth every minute to experience Raja Ampat on the Arenui. The service and attention to detail on deck and the expert dive guides made it a pleasure to spend 12 days on this boat - my first 12 day liveaboard ever and I was concerned 12 days would feel too long - NOT so on the Arenui! Also, the way the divers were put into 4 groups was really excellent. If you love the ocean and learning (great educational talks) above the creatures in the ocean, this boat is for you. Diving: the best I have ever seen: variety, awesome reefs, sharks coming back, giant mantas. Crew: spending time with Jerry and Debbie was awesome - first time I have met them and I love their energy and passion for diving and wow, what a crew they run - great team, great energy between the crew. The guys that helped with dive deck were just outstanding. Food: really appreciated Anto and Kadek and how they worked so hard to customize menu for each person and create unique menu for each guest.

Outstanding trip. Parting gift was a very nice touch! Boat: first class accommodations! Plenty of hot water. Comfort was excellent. Pillow variety was a great touch! Diving: the scouting was very much appreciated. Extra effort to ensure we saw the best. Well worth the price! Crew: first class crew. Always standing by to assist with any desire no matter how small. Above and beyond every single day. Food: variety was excellent. Every effort made to please every single guest.

I am spoiled now. This sets the bar that other dive liveaboards must reach. When I return to dive Indonesia, rest assured it will be aboard the Arenui. Planning on coming back 3-4 years from now. Telling fellow divers this is the "only" way to dive Indonesia. Please feel free to luxe me with specials! Boat: very comfortable bed! Wish shower was more powerful. Diving: Wishing for more large fish encounters. But the number of fish and different types was awesome! Crew: G is a mad scientist. He could fix anything. Joni my divemaster was very calm and knowledgeable about the sites. Awesome massage. Stewards and tenders were the best. Anto is delightful. Everyone knows your name, your equipment. Best dive experience.

I missed a couple of days of diving because of some congestion, so I missed seeing the giant manta rays. Lisa made a point of asking G to see what he could do to find them on a dive he lead us on. I hadn't asked her to and appreciated her being so thoughtful! We didn't see any but not for lack of trying. That's great service! Thank you! Boat: beautiful boat, beautiful detail. Crew: crew is top notch. G and Lisa are wonderful. Jose gave great presentations. Anto is a real gem. Food: great food. Steak was incredible.

Excellent value for money. A big thank you to our divemaster Jose - he always made me feel at ease with the diving. He was my dive partner for Yuliet (since Jamie was sick) - I loved Jose's enthusiasm for the marine creatures, I found it contagious! 🙂 He made sure there was some "aquarium" diving since I am fairly new at this - a big hug and thank you for this! I really enjoyed his lectures - please keep going with that. I think future guests will really enjoy it! I would dive with him anytime! Diving: I always felt well informed about the dive sites. Was amazed at the amount of marine life! Crew: everyone friendly! Dive trips explained in great detail. I enjoyed the friendly relationship between crew and guests. Food: yummy food! Loved trying new things and flavours. Thank you for accommodating half portions.

We will be back on Forgotten Islands, or Komodo or this trip again - with the same CREW! Simply stunning trip! One of my best adventures ever! And something to remember all my life. The boat is gorgeous, the crew is exceptional. Boat: when I dream of a boat, I dream of Arenui. Rocking music of the wood, its beauty, comfort, everything. Diving: not just excellent, PERFECT. Lisa is a wonderful divemaster! Perfect dive plans always, awesome sense of humor, always showing lots of things we would otherwise never see. Crew: PERFECT. It's the whole TEAM, i.e. everyone together, who is outstanding. Same crew as 1.5 years ago (almost)! That says a lot. And the guests can appreciate the excellent atmosphere! Food: delicious!

Debbie and Jerry were lovely people, filled with enthusiasm and clearly in love with their jobs. The boat was run efficiently and we felt like royalty for the entire 11 days. Boat: loved Shinta cabin. Spacious, tons of storage. Beautiful windows and lovely decorations. Great value relative to price of other cabins on boat. Upon our return, we'd only stay in Shinta or Rama. Diving: diving was spectacular! Crew: Phari was a wonderful dive guide and I appreciated being with him. Not only did he perform the traditional dive master role, but he also took extra effort to instruct me on improving my buoyancy and general diving. Debbie and Jerry were the best! Food: food was great, although there was certainly a lot of it.

Hightlight was Anto dressed as a zombie, he is very good as a zombie waiter! Glad Luigi was with us as well, made the trip very interesting. Debbie and Jerry are also excellent directors, highly recommended! This trip was a perfect trip for Traci to learn to dive. I enjoyed watching her gain confidence with each new dive. She is going to definitely be spoiled after this trip! 🙂 Boat: our cabin was very comfortable, we felt like we had our own tree fort under the sea. Bed was very good as well. Crew: everyone was always helpful and smiling. Very sweet people. Food: sometimes too much food, but our needs were always met or exceeded. Anto and Kadek did make our dreams come true.
2016
13 Jun / Lisa, USA
Excellent trip all around! No concerns or negative experiences at all! One suggestion: maybe offer soft spa music during massages (not too loud), may be better than hearing the other guests talking. Lisa was one of the best divemasters I've ever had! She was extremely patient, was always looking out for our group, and always took the time to make sure we were comfortable and ready. She was quick to point out the marine life and made all the dives the most enjoyable I have ever had! Terima Kasih 🙂 Boat: Beautiful and charming! Diving: all excellent, specially the destination and safety! Crew: all excellent, specially the Cruise Directors. The entire crew was amazing! So kind, patient, caring, and accommodating at ALL times! Most of all, the crew was sincere in everything they did! Wonderful 🙂 Food: all excellent. The food was delicious!! Great variety and presentation!
