    THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME
    Singapore Airlines flies you and a guest roundtrip business class to Bali for an indulgent Indonesian escape. Enjoy five glorious nights in paradise at the expansive and elegant Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, complete with soothing, luxurious spa treatments. Experience the diversity of Bali when you continue your relaxing visit at the holistic villas of Begawan Giri Ubud. Adding more glamour to your Balinese adventure, you will enjoy a private tour of the eco-friendly John Hardy workshops and grounds led by Creative Director Guy Bedavidam, where you will select a token of remembrance from their Bamboo Collection.

    Finally, you and up to five additional guests of your choosing will cruise the South East Pacific Ocean for seven days onboard the magnificent Silolona, a traditional Indonesian wooden sailing ship built by the local Sulewesi Konjo people in 2004. This enchanting 164 foot schooner charms passengers with one of the most luxurious cruising experiences in the world, while traveling through a region of the Earth where unimagined beauty thrives in glorious abundance. Guided by Conservation International's veteran experts, this trip gives you an ultimate wilderness experience both on the surface and through SCUBA activites. As you snorkel or dive one of the most diverse coral reefs on the planet, you are almost certain to encounter a new species! You can choose to explore the extreme marine biodiversity of Raja Ampat or cruise to the secluded tropical island of Komodo.
