Patty Seery
Patty Seery from Silolona Sojourns shares:

"My goal was to create a traditional hand crafted vessel that speaks of the history of the Spice Trade and embodies the spirit of the Indonesian Archipelago while ensuring the highest international standards for safety, comfort , service and cuisine. In order to accomplish this goal a mutually respectful bridge between the knowledge and skill of the traditional boat builders and modern western marine technology had to be established.

Silolona is the embodiment and realization of that dream and is already being called the Ultimate Phinisi, truly a modern classic. Secret Retreats shares the same values and respect for people and traditions."


Itinerary

Si Datu Bua vesselSpice Islands of Banda
Long before we sight land, the scent of spices drifts across the burnished teak decks of our wooden sailing ship. Before us, in the tranquil Banda Sea, lies the enchanting tiny island that was once the centre of the Spice Island trade.
Soothed by the trade winds and idyllic charms of these now forgotten islands, tomorrow we shall stroll through the world’s oldest nutmeg gardens, visit private colonial mansions, and savour the remnants of Banda’s once glorious past. On our way to snorkel or dive the brilliant multihued underwater gardens, we might stop along the beach to collect pieces of 500 year old pottery washed ashore from an ancient shipwreck.

Contact us here dream@secret-retreats.com to explore the unspoiled Spice islands of Banda… or other destinations around Eastern Indonesia.
