Sail the islands of the Indonesian archipelago in unparalleled luxury aboard Celestia, a 147.6-foot-long Phinisi yacht fitted with seven en-suite cabins with handcrafted components, boasting interiors by Cape Town-based designer Deirdre Renniers.


Onboard, relax on the sundeck lounge on the bowsprit, take part in sunrise yoga, slow down with a massage, enjoy a guided star-gazing session or marvel at the bat migration on Kalong Island taking place each dusk. Delicious, fresh, locally sourced meals and snacks are created by Bali native Executive Chef Wayan Kresna Yasa, part of the team at Michelin-starred Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York.
