Win a chance to explore the crystal-clear waters of eastern Indonesia for seven nights onboard the luxurious Tiger Blue yacht, courtesy of Exsus Travel.

The lucky winner and their guest can choose from two itineraries – from May to September, Tiger Blue will sail through the turquoise waters of Komodo National Park, just off the western tip of Flores. In October or November, as the weather changes, the yacht relocates to Raja Ampat, a stunning archipelago comprising hundreds of jungle clad islands.

Guests will enjoy a truly authentic experience of Indonesia. This luxurious 34-metre phinisi yacht is crafted in ironwood and teak, and combines traditional design with modern comforts. There are five en-suite cabins, which are air-conditioned and comfortably appointed. The yacht is operated by an expert crew of 10 who are all on hand to offer warm Indonesian hospitality, coupled with excellent service. 

This will be a truly immersive holiday experience with Exsus Travel as the winner makes their journey onboard Tiger Blue.
