The Komodo Islands
The smallest of the luxury boats used by Ampersand, Mischief is the perfect choice for those smaller groups not so accustomed to sailing. It sleeps up to six people with two double rooms and one twin. The master bedroom is wonderful, located on the top deck at the back of the boat and looking out to views from three sides, with its own open air private lounge, an idyllic place to watch the sun set. All of the rooms on this boat are wonderfully bright with plenty of windows for the natural light to flood in, just delightful for catching the views outside. The décor is reminiscent of a traditional beach house; the furnishings are nicely nautical, with whites and pastels, comfortable chic armchairs and a social bar area with a friendly crew to serve – it is very simple but very lovely, and the atmosphere is one of tranquillity and charm. It feels fresh and homely, warm and inviting; a modern take on a classic beach house style.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
