0719 Emperor Harmoni collage from build 2.jpg

 

Emperor Harmoni is a 48m traditional Phinisi hull that has been adapted to hold two main engines and, because of the clever design, has increased deck space and stability by removing the need for masts and sailing rigs.

She starts operating from July 2020 in Komodo and will go on to cruise the majestic archipelago of Indonesia, taking in world famous hot spots such as Raja Ampat, Komodo National Park and the Banda Sea.

With her state of the art navigation and safety systems and design incorporated into the hull, Emperor Harmoni, like her name, brings a truly harmonious marriage of modern and traditional features.

Built by renowned Pak Haji Wahab, known to many as the champion of the Bugis Phinisi craftsmen, he is responsible for the construction of many of the most famous names in Indonesian liveaboard vessels including Emperor Indonesia’s own, Emperor Raja Laut.

As Emperor Harmoni takes shape, we’ll be bringing you the ‘inside story’ on her interior design, how the Emperor team sourced 50 year old teak wood from derelict houses and how she will deliver the WOW factor and some. Plus more photos so you can follow her transformation into a striking liveaboard.

Mike says, "Honesty, integrity, marvellous boats and lovely crew." Not just that but Mike says our booking staff are great; "no tricks, cheats, no extra phoney discounts".

And the proof is in the pudding.

Last year Mike enjoyed diving on Emperor Elite, Red Sea and Emperor Raja Laut, Indonesia.

This year on Emperor Echo, Red Sea and Emperor Explorer, Maldives.

Hang on, there's more ... next year he's on Emperor Echo again then Emperor Harmoni, Indonesia. 2021 on Emperor Explorer for a double back-to-back.

Wow! Welcome back Mike - time and time again and for as many times as we can welcome you. Now that's Loyalty with a capital L.

Thank you to our recent guest, Dr Merna Sadek for this glowing feedback. 

“I am Dr Merna, a doctor at Gan Regional Hospital, Laamu Atoll. I took 3 courses here at Emperor Laamu Diving Centre with the instructor, Adam Andrews.

They were really amazing courses with a very professional instructor and team. I was relaxed and comfortable with them and also their professionality and confidence made me feel safe and confident under water.

This is just to appreciate their excellent work. Thank you so much.

Komodo National Park and dive sites are OPEN!

| No TrackBacks

If you have seen posts on the web saying Komodo dive sites are closed, they’re wrong!

You can still dive this amazing place with Emperor Raja Laut. It’s only Komodo Island that’s closed so you can still see dragons at nearby Rinca and dive all the Komodo sites with us.

And the good news for divers is that because of the new regulations, fewer boats mean fewer divers so an even more enjoyable experience with more marine life.

Indonesia is a wonderful place to visit for a mix of holiday memories. And there’s more to it than the diving.

You can sightsee, you can drink in the vista, you can relax on a fantastic liveaboard, you can walk, you can climb, you can see the wildlife and you can snorkel, swim and smile.

It’s not only about diving, although it’s pretty special in these parts of the world. Both Emperor Raja Laut and Emperor Harmoni make excellent ‘non-diver cruise’ holidays.

Carlos Fernández Arco
Recent guest to Emperor Divers Laamu, Reveries Diving Village

I was supposed to be travelling for business to Australia but the schedule was broken and, once in Singapore, I had to re-schedule my trip (still heading to Sri Lanka, Philippines and Morocco) and took the chance to visit my suppliers in the Maldives.

In Himmafushi I realised that this was too good to just do the business visits and continue my trip (especially for a diver like me), so I decided to stay some days relaxing and diving, the thing I like the most in this life.

I did one dive in the other island which was really disappointing. Then I arrived at Emperor Divers Laamu, Gan, Reveries Diving Village and all changed.

I have dived in many places (had license since 1994) and believe me that I have never found a team like the one you have here in the Maldives. Both Adam and Sandeep are incredible people who really understand, not just about diving which they are very good at, but also the holistic concept of business and hosting guests. Believe me that it’s not something easy to find what you have here.

As an expat for 20 years and owner of businesses in several places around the world, I know the value of having good workers on which you can rely and which can help you earn money and sleep well. And the duet of Adam-Sandeep are those of that kind. Each one with his own character, embraces, teaches you, leads you and even sells you additional items! I was still an old style diver with just Regular Air and I was convinced in 10 seconds by Adam of the need to improve. He did it in a very sensible but luring way; good selling skills!

I never found such a good approach to diving like Adam’s. Serious, professional, kind and I would even call it with proper etiquette. His briefings are like master classes!

Sandeep is incredible how he provides the cool and relaxing atmosphere and gives you huge confidence to play well but within the rules and tasks. He’s charismatic and makes people keep a strong memory of the stay at the centre.

Thanks for the great experience and looking forward to meeting you again.

PS: Photos and new manta sightings!


Carlos 1 (Medium).jpgImmerse yourself in these fabulous photos by Adam Andrews, Baase Leader at Emperor Divers Laamu.

And what's more, the Manta Trust contacted us on seeing them and told us, "You spotted two beautiful mantas who are relatively new to our database. The first manta (left) is the same you saw on May 29th at Fushi Kandu. This male is featured in our partnership with the Carl F. Bucherer watch company so doesn't yet have a name. This is our first record of him anywhere besides Fushi Kandu! 

 

Carlos 2 (Medium).jpgThe second manta (right) is Faana, a female who has only been encountered a few times. These two mantas were actually both encountered for the first time on the same day (May 22nd, 2017) but during two different dives at Fushi Kandu. She's only been photographed six times, the last being in October at Hithadhoo Corner. 

Nicole's reference to Carl F Bucherer: Each manta in the partnership is engraved on a different watch. This manta hasn't been named yet and the person who buys the specific watch will be given the opportunity to name the manta.
