The luxury traveler is becoming more and more demanding. He seems to have seen it all and done it all and it is becoming increasingly difficult to devise a new and exciting experience for him. Aman Resorts has earned a respectable name as a global luxury travel provider. They have been taking travelers to exotic locations since 1988. They had started from Phuket in Thailand and they have expanded steadily to now have equally opulent properties in China, Morocco, the US, France, Turkey, and beyond. All their resorts are known for taking care of every detail. They are now taking to the high seas and launching Amanikan, a 105 foot coastal cruiser that will sail in tropical Indonesia this fall.
The exclusive cruise is being called the Raja Ampat Expedition. The travelers will be able to explore the Raja Ampat or Four Kings. It is an area spread over 25,000 square miles in the northeast waters of the Indonesian Archipelago. The first time visitors will be stunned by the aquatic life in the region which is considered one of the most impressive in the world. The guests on the cruise can go scuba diving and watch more than 1,300 species of fish, 603 species of coral, 57 species of mantis shrimp and 15 species of mammals. Incidentally, the region boasts of 75% of all known type of coral in the world. The rich vegetation and wildlife on the ground seems to be a bonus for the guests. They can see rare orchids, sea eagles, tree kangaroos, and legendary birds of paradise.
