The gulets

You will be aboard one of two gulets – the MS Gideon or the MS Nostalgia. The boats range from 25 to 32 metres long and sleep between 10 and 16 guests. Each gulet is beautifully crafted from mahogany and teak wood and has been recently refitted. All cabins have an en-suite shower room, plus hairdryers, and both bath and beach towels (changed midweek). There's enough Wi-Fi to check your emails if you really need to. Four crew members, including the captain and chef, are on hand, and you'll find fishing gear, snorkelling equipment and a two-man canoe available for switching off peacefully or personal exploration.

Relax in the shared lounge with iced drinks or spread out on the sun mattresses on deck. You'll enjoy peaceful al fresco dining under the shade of an awning, with breakfast and three-course lunches freshly prepared by the onboard chef. You'll also have dinner on the boat on the day of arrival.
