Ayana Hotels to launch Phinisi cruise ship in Bali, Indonesia

Ayana Hotels launch the largest specially built Phinisi cruise ship, Ayana Lako di’a, in July.

With a name meaning Safe Journey in Balinese language, the craft draws on ancient techniques passed down from generation to generation.

The art of Phinisi ship-building is an age-old craft originated in Sulawesi by Konjo people.

As of December 2017, the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) declared South Sulawesi’s incredible Phinisi boat-building art as part of the world’s intangible cultural heritage.

Ayana Lako di’a will be gracing the crystal waters of the beautiful Komodo Islands, located a mere one-hour flight from Bali.
