Set sail on the Flores Sea
For the more adventurous traveler, Alila Purnama welcomes visitors for a liveaboard stay on a luxury phinisi in the Flores Sea.

After a day of exploration, guests unwind on one of the ship’s 3 decks and take in the beauty of passing coastline. The Alila Purnama even contains an extensive library, so travelers can curl up on a daybed or long lounger with a book. Even the indoor spaces of the phinisi are outfitted with Sunbrella fabric for waterside durability and ultimate sun-resistance that present luxurious comfort.
Dynamic Urban Escape
For travelers with a world-class dining appetite, Alila SCBD in bustling Jakarta is sure to impress.

Vong Kitchen, a sophisticated French-American eatery, is run by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges and his son Cedric.
This father-son duo boasts a lively open-kitchen style concept, providing views of the preparation of their seasonal and mouth-watering signature plates. Guests enjoy a cocktail on the lounge-style seating, upholstered in a sophisticated Sunbrella palette. The electric ambience presented in this stylish cantina is heavily indicative of the lively district that surrounds it.
This pair doesn’t stop here though, they also are responsible for Alila SCBD’s casual burger bistro, Le Burger. Don’t let the seemingly simple menu of burgers and shakes fool you, this beer-garden has a hip atmosphere and makes for a perfect happy hour destination.
