Departing from Bali aboard Aqua Expeditions’ superyacht Aqua Blu, this singular experience combines a four-night private charter navigating the famed Komodo National Park, culminating in three dreamy nights nestled within the uniquely designed villas of NIHI Sumba, a haven of untamed natural beauty and sustainable luxury.
