On Board Facilities & Accommodation
At 34 metres, the Ratu Motu offers plenty of space for relaxation and entertainment.
With a sun deck, observation deck, interior salon lounge and a fine dining space to choose from, you are spoilt for choice when deciding where to dine, relay the day’s events, party or enjoy a cocktail!
The sundeck is the perfect place to soak up the sunshine and feel the wind in your hair while on the move. Protected by a little shade, you can sit and take in the views on the way to your next destination. This is the prime outside viewing area on the boat and will feature in many a memory long after you get home!
There is also the observation deck which is fully undercover with lounge chairs, coffee tables and a standing bar. This is a great area to have a snooze out of the sun or read a book, play board games or to just watch the surf. It also acts as a great party area and the crews are always eager to help set up a themed dress up party if you so wish!
Continuing outside, there is the swim platform at the stern of the vessel providing easy water access. The swim platform is flush with the water level so you can easily get in and out of the water, the tenders or kayaks or simply walk onto your stand up paddle board!
Venturing inside the Ratu Motu, there is the open plan Salon lounge which acts as the main ‘hang out’ area inside the boat. Here you will find 2 large wrap around sofas to take a break from the heat outside, play a game, watch a movie on the flat screen plasma TV or enjoy 40 winks! Don’t worry, you won’t miss anything as the salon lounge has large windows either side, allowing you to still take in the passing breathtaking scenery.
The fine dining area and salon lounge is open plan and thus, creating a large spacious and luxurious feeling inside area. Enjoy chatting for hours over meals and drinks served to you by the crew.

The Ratu Motu is packed with water-sports equipment to enjoy at your leisure. After a day of fun in the sun playing with the equipment included on board, or indeed surfing and diving, guests have a healthy appetite! The on board chef and dining crew invest a lot of time and energy into serving satisfying and healthy meals to their guests. They are on hand from dawn until late evening to deliver snacks or traditional feasts. At all times, you can help yourself to tea, coffee, fruit juice, bottle water or the delicious choice of tropical fruits such as bananas, watermelon, mandarins, apples or papaya.
A sumptuous continental style breakfast is served on the open deck to give you a good start to your day and energies you for the activities ahead. Lunch is usually served when guests return from their morning surf or activities in the Main Cabin dining area where you have offerings such as fresh salads and cold meats, sandwich selections, burgers and fries, pastas, Mexican buffets or a traditional Indonesian “Nasi Campur”. Expect a delicious choice of fresh seafood snacks with antipasto plates at sunset with a drink perhaps including some of the fish you may have caught earlier in the day. Dinner is a no holds bar affair which again consists of perhaps the catch of the day, mud crabs, curries, an Indonesian banquet, pasta, salads, fruits…. not forgetting dessert!
