Combining traditional construction techniques with contemporary design, Jiwa Alam is built for the waters of the eastern Indonesian archipelago (and the Great Barrier Reef), allowing access to areas that larger boats can’t and providing a style as well as a level of comfort that makes cruising on this vessel is the experience of a lifetime. The boat was converted into a boutique boat in 2016, adding all the luxury and design amenities to add comfort with a reasonable price.
The concept of this boat combines comfort, space, and simplicity. In the tropics, the sun is very strong but Jiwa Alam has a covered sundeck with panoramic views to enjoy the sunset, chill on the bean bags, or watch the stars in the comfortable outdoor beds. Furthermore, Jiwa Alam has its solar power system which gives you full electrical power for 24 hours. Jiwa Alam also has a noiseless genset to keep the cabins cool at night.
The boat has one double bed (king size) and one single folding bed in the master cabin, two double beds (queen size) in the central cabin, and two single beds in the dog house and front cabin, all of which are equipped with air conditioning. There are also three bathrooms inside (toilet, shower, and basin) and a bathroom on the upper deck (shower and toilet).
After a morning flight from Denpasar to Kupang (West Timor), you will be picked up from the airport and transfered straight to the Jiwa Alam. You then set sail for Rote, arriving early next morning. Nembrala is the main break in the area, a long left hander that picks up plenty of swell and holds it as big as it gets. There are numerous lefts and rights on Rote and the nearby islands of Dana, Ndao, and Doo, all offering empty perfection.
There are a surprising number of rights that are good morning options before the trades kick in. The rights can also fire during shoulder seasons when winds are more variable. The game fishing is fantastic, with trevally, tuna, mackerel, and sailfish often caught. Lobster and squid are brought to you by the local fishermen to barbecue on the deck. After your time is up, you will travel overnight back to Kupang and transfered to the airport for your flight back to Bali.
You will surf on various spots around Rote Island.
You will have all-you-can-eat meals, bottled water, fruit drinks, and barbecue for grilling the day's catch. The food is delicious and plentiful to keep your energy levels up, so don’t expect to lose weight.
Please book your flight to arrive at El Tari International Airport (KOE). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Indo Boat Cruise will pick you up from the airport.
