About Solitude Adventurer
Solitude Adventurer is a 36-metre Aluminium catamaran, though built in the year 2000 she underwent a full renovation in 2017. Adventurer, initially designed to be a private yacht, is as of late-2018 when operations began Indonesia’s only catamaran liveaboard able to cater up to a maximum of 18 guests in unparalleled comfort.
From the very beginning, safety has always been the most important aspect of Solitude and at the forefront of all decision making. Given the remote areas we operate in, it is vital to us that our crew are well trained and we are equipped to handle any scenario should it occur.
During your stay onboard we provide our guests with a complimentary Nautlius Marine Rescue GPS to provide that peace of mind when out diving in the remote parts of Indonesia
Our Features & Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) equipped with:
The Heart & Soul of Solitude
It is no understatement that our crew are the most essential part of the whole of Solitude Liveaboards & Resorts. Our crew onboard Solitude Adventurer hail from different locations within Indonesia, with the exception being our Cruise Director and a couple of our Dive Guides.
It’s the crew that are the ones who have learnt to anticipate your needs before it even becomes as such. From the frequently seen to the unseen crew, all of them play an essential role to ensure that everything runs like a well-oiled engine and your trip is an experience you will always treasure. We continuously strive to improve collectively as a team by following our fundamental ethos of Safety, Communication and Comfort.
Solitude Adventurer currently has a total of 8 cabins that can accommodate a maximum capacity of 18 guests. With the design, we applied our experiences from refurbishing our other liveaboard, MV Solitude One, paying close attention to detail while using common sense, as well as incorporating feedback from guests and essential elements from the hospitality world, being very aware of what discerning divers need and want. All rooms are above deck allowing for large windows to gaze at the surrounding scenery.
After a lot of feedback from our guests, we are planning in future to convert our larger Stateroom and Quad Cabins into a total of four Queen-sized bed cabins, as to thereby providing more options to travellers and in particular, couples.
Our one and only stateroom is by far the largest cabin onboard. Perfect for travellers who want the utmost comfort throughout their cruise.
Equipped with extra large windows so you can gaze at the beauty of the ocean and surrounding islands form the comfort of your own bed.
Designed with two bunk beds, the quad cabin is ideal for families, solo travellers or small groups.
*Mattress Sizes: King-mattresses 180cm (72in) x 190cm (75in), Twin/single mattresses size 107cm (42in) x 190cm (75in)
One of the most important aspects of holiday… Food. We do our utmost ensure you never go hungry while onboard with 5 meals per day: Light breakfast, big breakfast, lunch, afternoon cooked snacks and dinner. Not to mention the biscuits and instant noodles available at all times complimentary. Main meals are typically in a buffet style, though with certain types of cuisine we will serve à la carte.
Meals usually are served in our air-conditioned saloon; however, depending on conditions we may opt to have a BBQ dinner under the stars on our ‘sundeck.’
Special Dietry Requests or Requirements: We are able to accommodate vegetarian and selective non-meat diets. We kindly ask those with vegan dietry requests to provide advanced notice with a specific list of allowable ingredients for their meal preparation.
Unparalleled Comfort at Sea...
Indonesia is home to some of the most iconic topography in the world with over 17,000 islands.
The best way of seeing some of these breathtaking and undisturbed parts of the country is by liveaboard, and there are few as cosy or spacious as Solitude Adventurer.
With all rooms located above deck with large windows as well as an abundant amount of outdoor space, you need never worry about missing out on the beautiful scenery Indonesia has to offer.
The extra width offered by a catamaran makes it feel more like a floating apartment than a boat sometimes. In our lounge area there is plenty on offer, from the popular massage chair, to rack of books, or just grab a seat on a bean bag and watch something from our vast library of movies and TV series. We even have a couple of guitars our guests are welcome to use or leave it to some of our masterful crew to play something for you!
Next to the lounge is our glass-walled kitchen area where you can watch our chefs at work preparing delicious food.
