Are you looking for amazing luxury cruises? Welcome on board The Oracle and sail across the Indonesian archipelago in an intimate getaway experience that we promise will take your breath away!
The Oracle redefines luxury cruises through a journey on a thoughtfully designed 35-meter custom-built Phinisi boat. Declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2017, Phinisi, the art of boat-building in South Sulawesi, is a local treasure. Phinisi is a traditional Indonesian sailboat with two or three masts, built with a particular Sulawesi rope system and sailing screen. Popularized by the Konjo tribe, a sub-ethnic group of Bugis-Makassar residing in Bulukumba regency of South Sulawesi, Phinisi is traditionally used for inter-insular transportation, cargo, and fishing purposes. It is also known as a sturdy traditional ship that is proven in its ability to sail great distances; ideal for traveling around an archipelagic nation and exceptional even by international sailing standard. This age-old shipbuilding technology is a prestigious masterpiece born out of a culture known to raise master shipmen as well as a symbol of its values: strength, fighting spirit, understanding of the natural environment and its forces, and a fierce courage to break high waves and sail vast distance. The Phinisi legacy is a wonder, but it is no wonder that this excellent quality deserves awe and respect from people all around the world—including Blue Karma owners, who take inspiration from the Phinisi and turn it into The Oracle.
Arguably one of Indonesia’s most luxurious Phinisi boats, The Oracle will treat you to a holistic luxury cruise experience. Designed to cater to couples, newlyweds, or small families who are looking for a little luxury cruises glam to spice up their holiday, The Oracle offers her visceral layout and extensive deck as well as her seasoned crew of 10, which includes a private chef and massage therapists, to ensure your ultimate comfort throughout this journey of a lifetime.
The two suites accommodate up to four guests, with an additional accommodation for up to two guests below the deck. Inside, each suite has a panoramic window, an en-suite bathroom, and a secluded al fresco terrace, which will help you find what you are longing for in luxury cruises: the space for ultimate discovery and the opportunity to seek solitude and revive your spirit. Guaranteed, the journey will leave you feeling refreshed, transformed, and well-connected with yourself and your loved ones.
