KM Raja Manta’s on-board facilities

Guests can relax in the commodious air-conditioned saloon and dining area with bar, TV, video and music playing in the background. The adjacent area, as you can notice in the picture below, can be used as a dining room, but the main eating spot is outside. Indeed, the open-air dining area is spacious and comes with a wonderful view on Indonesia‘s landscapes.
