Dear Hans and crew, first of all thanks a lot for these beautiful pictures, Hans! Thanks a lot for the exceptionally wonderful time we had on the boat! We enjoyed every minute of it. Please send our big thank you to all of the crew for making a lot of beautiful memories on the most beautiful place we have ever been! We will keep these 4 days in our head and heart for ever and the beautiful pictures and video’s will be kept in a special place. Now we have to rehab from all the animal spotting, all the lovely views, food, private photographer, great service, cocktails, paddleboards and everything else I forgot to mention!
Terima Kasi or as we say: Dankjewel!

it’s amazing, the experience was surreal. The crew is outstanding i’d definitely go on this trip again.
Magical, memorable, magnificent.
Took the fam (wife, 3 kids 18, 15 & 6 and myself) on a 3-day 2-night circuit around Komodo National Park on the Samara. Hand-crafted boat was gorgeous and comfortable, staff were terrific, food was delicious and plentiful and the environment was just incredible. The personal touches of Fresa (Indonesian) & Marc (Swiss) came through in every detail and we can’t recommend it highly enough!
Definitely an experience that will never be forgotten! The room was always cool and the beds were clean and comfortable. Surprisingly, my children had no problem sleeping on the boat. We never had to worry about being hungry cause they serve abundant, delicious food from morning til’ evening. And to top if off, the entire crew was sensational! Very friendly and never hesitated to help us and to take care of the children. Thank you for the wonderful trip, we will definitely come back again someday
We are very and happily satisfied with the boat facilities, especially the delicious food that they served. The crew was friendly and helpful, even though we had a little trouble with unfitting snorkeling equipment, over all my family and I really enjoyed the experience of our holiday in Flores with Samara Liveaboard
Very well organized, incredibly lively and warm crew. Note worthy, the professional and attentive attitude to every passenger. Very knowledgable and helpful. We had an amazing experience, such as hiking, trekking and snorkeling despite the fact that we are not very “sporty”, but the crew made sure we were ok every step of the way. Delicious food and great service. Thank you Samara for making this a memorable experience.
Best crew, best chef – always making sure that the boat is nice and clean. The kids loved sitting on the deck looking at the breathtaking view of all the islands! All in all, just perfect.
We are two families with eight people and Samara II is an amazing boat! It has plenty of room for us. The chef is great and always ready to serve us. And the captain, Mr. Stefan always ensured that we were safe. We love the crew too, they are amazingly helpful. Not just us, the parents, but also our four teenagers had a great time visiting Komodo National Park. We highly recommend Samara!
