Silolona
The Komodo Islands

Top 10s logo 

Silolona is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Luxury Sailboats.

Silolona is a 49-metre wooden sailboat hand-carved in the traditional "Phinsi" style following the ancestral traditions of Konjo boat builders and luxuriously fitted out with crisp white cushions, one-off Asian artefacts and a stunning sundeck. The beauty of the islands she explores is legendary, the underwater landscape is the most bio-diverse in the world and the rich tapestry of cultures and the warmth of the people all makes for a holiday of a lifetime. The five luxurious  en-suite bedrooms are styled on Indonesian islands and cultures. All journeys, be they private charters or highly specific "private journey expeditions", are tailored to the greatest level of detail according to your specific interests by Silolona's destination specialist, who has over 20 years of experience throughout South-East Asia.

You can explore mythical Komodo Island, meet indigenous Papuan tribes, zig zag through the paradise islands of the Banda Sea, scuba dive in Raja Ampat or relax on your own hidden, pristine beach in the Mergui Archipelago. The dedicated crew of 16 on board Silolona (including a 5 star chef and a dive master) offer some of the best hospitality in the world: discreet and warm and with an intimate knowledge of the areas they cruise. As they work the sails and whip up gourmet meals from fresh local sources, you can while away your time in pristine blue waters, scuba diving, sea-kayaking, waterskiing and fishing. Each day ends watching the sunset turning from orange to pink to purple as it dips over remote, exotic islands. Silolona sails in Indonesia from April to November every year, before going up to the West Coast of Malaysia, Thailand and up to Myanmar from December to March.

Culture, luxury, soul-stirring natural beauty and adventure... this journey is simply out of this world and this is reflected in the price. It is expensive, but if you are looking to really treat yourselves, this exclusive sailing adventure will provide memories to last a lifetime - the perfect multi-generational experience for the whole family. Here is a BBC Knowledge short film featuring Silolona :

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
