A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
Discover everything a diver, sun-, sea- and nature-lover could ask for and more on this six-night expedition to Triton Bay. Named for the Greek sea god, this magnificent bay in Kaimana regency, part of Indonesia’s West Papua Province, is truly a heaven on earth. Unspoilt by any development, its reefs blanket the ocean floor in a wonderland of soft corals, home to every kind of sea creature from pygmy seahorses to majestic whale sharks. Flora and fauna onshore is just as spectacular, with prolific birdlife creating the soundtrack for each memorable day.
Let go of the real world as you cruise south from the town of Kaimana towards your own private paradise, where waterfalls plunge into the sea and cliffs boast ancient rock art. As you discover Triton Bay’s finest dive sites, climb its highest peaks and stroll its pristine beaches, your every need is met onboard Amandira. Expert chefs prepare exquisite meals and a PADI-certified dive master helps plan your days.
A protected marine reserve, Triton Bay is home to some of the best and most diverse macro life in Indonesia, with pygmy seahorses, yet unnamed species of cuttlefish and squid, and endless species of nudibranchs. From beautiful black corals to yellowtail barracuda, parrotfish, devil rays and wobbegong sharks, each dive will reveal a new discovery.
Follow the rising sun to the Bagans – traditional fishing vessels from which to swim with whale sharks. Once the silhouettes of these gentle giants have been glimpsed beneath the surface, slip in and swim alongside them – a brush with the divine you will never forget.
In centuries past, there were souls lucky enough to live out their entire lives in this magical place. On the cliffs of Namatota, they left their mark in celebration of nature’s gifts. Find their drawings and entertain the temptation to call this paradise home for good.
Kiti Kiti Waterfall plunges through verdant vegetation into the turquoise waters of the bay below. Swim or snorkel at its foot, and even climb beneath it for a spray-framed view out to sea. After a picnic lunch, discover hidden lagoons filled with fish.
In the shade of palm trees on a picture-postcard islet, enjoy a hearty breakfast with only nature as your witness. While Amandira’s staff ensures your coffee is fresh and your croissant freshly baked, swim and snorkel, kayak and paddleboard to your heart’s content.
