Here's some good news from Indonesia! Komodo Island will be remaining open to everyone. Indonesian authorities are working with all the parties involved to make sure the most sustainable practices are observed.

Tourism  has increased over the past few years but regular surveys have shown this hasn’t had a detrimental effect on those living on Komodo Island nor the Komodo dragons.

Emperor Indonesia welcomes this development and continues to be a leading player in helping to protect the environment and support the local population where possible.

Well ignore them because they're wrong!

You can still dive this amazing place with Emperor Raja Laut and get to see Komodo dragons without paying any extra. It's only Komodo Island that this refers to; you can still see dragons at nearby Rinca and dive all the Komodo sites with us.

Indonesia is a wonderful place to visit and there's more to it than the diving. You can sightsee, drink in the vista, relax on a fantastic liveaboard, walk, climb, see the wildlife and snorkel, swim and smile.

Glowing feedback from our soon-to-be guest, Matt Picozzi, who joins Emperor Elite, Red Sea, in December.

"I was going to wait until after our holiday, but can I take this opportunity to say how great the customer services team has been at Emperor! Not just in this instance, but since booking I have been amazed at the speed and helpfulness of all your responses and communications. I am so glad I booked direct and will certainly recommend you to friends and family. We can't wait to dive with you if the dive team is as good as you have been!"

Continuing our series following Emperor Harmoni's story, we move to Sulawesi Tenggara (southeast Sulawesi) where Pak Haji Wahab sources Sulawesi Ironwood, named for its incredible density and strength, which creates a resistance to rot and, every boat owner's nightmare, termites.


Emperor Harmoni


Here on a remote beach two hours' drive through jungle and nickel mines from the nearest domestic airport in Kendari, Pak Haji Wahab sets to work using skills and traditions passed down verbally from generation to generation for hundreds of years to build the 48m hull that is the foundation for Emperor Harmoni.

Once the hull is complete and chalked, the decks are laid and the frame for the superstructure and cabins are built from the same Sulawesi Ironwood, lending even further strength to this magnificent vessel.

Recycled teak for a good cause! Dor the interior and exterior walls, the Emperor team sourced 50 year old teak wood from derelict houses in Sulawesi Tenggara, helping the owners to build a modern insulated home whilst allowing Emperor Harmoni to be built using recycled teak. Teak is famous for aging well into a handsome grey, as well as for its strength and durability.

Our next instalment will see how she moves 800 nautical miles to Bali ready for her fit out. No mean feat building these super liveaboards but so very worth it.
