Mantra’s On-board Facilities
Not only you can sleep comfortably in lavish cabins and newer comfortable mattresses but you can relax everywhere on the Mantra. Indeed, with plenty of social areas and a very few guests, you will feel a special sense of privacy.
The indoor dining area is convivial and reminds of a home’s dining room. That’s where the delicious and freshly prepared meals will be served. The meals are prepared by a chef and snacks are offered throughout the day. Also, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks are offered à-la-carte.
Moreover, there’s a indoor lounge where you’ll find a computer work station, couches and a flat screen television. The media library lets you choose from a collection of books, DVD’s, music as well as cards and board-games.
Furthermore, the outside is probably one of the best place to lounge and take in the beautiful views of Indonesia‘s islands! The fore deck has plenty of cozy cushioned loungers
Also, there is an outdoor dining area if you wish to eat alfresco and enjoy the surrounding scenery and the sound of waves. Finally, the top deck is the perfect place to enjoy a 360 view. Indeed, the sundeck is fitted mattresses and cushions so you can soak in the sun in style and comfort!
The Mantra is very unique but can be compared with the Adelaar and the Manta Mae, which also host only a limited number of guests. Yet they provide the same great luxury service on their spacious dive boats.
