Your Host and The Team


“Patti Seery was the visionary beyond Silolona Sojourns, creating traditional hand crafted vessels that speaks of the history of the Spice Trade and embodies the spirit of the Indonesian Archipelago whilst ensuring the highest international standards for safety, comforts, service and cuisine. In order to accomplish this goal a mutually respectful bridge between the knowledge and skill of the traditional boat builders and modern western marine technology had to be established.

The first of Patti’s builds became known as the Ultimate Phinisi, a modern classic phinisi build that is as much of the guest experience as the destination and experiences in themselves. Our second phinisi – Si Datu Bua (Beloved Princess) was built in 2012, using the same Konjo builders that built Silolona, Patti brought in Tresno a naval architect to conceptualize the smaller phinisi, using the same concepts of tradition with modern standards and comforts. Following Patti’s retirement she named Tresno as her successor and CEO. Sharing the same spirit of adventure and vision as Patti, Tresno continues to grow and develop Silolona Sojourns creating remarkable voyages for guests throughout South East Asia. Secret Retreats shares the same values and respect for people and traditions.”

We Care

 

Founded by American-born architect and founder of Silolona Sojourns Patti Seery who is based in Indonesia, Patti became involved with the Asmat and Dani Tribes of Papua 30 years ago, and actively acts as a liaison between these fascinating yet vanishing cultures and some of the world’s leading institutions of cultural preservation including The Smithsonian, The Field Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago. She takes great pride in these and other ethnic groups’ rich traditions and customs across the vast Indonesian archipelago.

As a member of The Indo-Pacific Conservation Alliance (IPCA), a non‐profit biodiversity conservation organisation that focuses on the Pacific region, Silonona Sojourns currently participates in ongoing field projects in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In addition, Silolona Sojourns is a vast supporter of marine conservation including supporting the conservation films of Shawn Heinrichs (Blue Sphere Media) and his work on the preservation of the Mantas in Indonesia, and Yayasan Toraja Melo (YTM), which aims to rejuvenate Indonesian indigenous arts & crafts whist improving the welfare of indigenous artisans and farmers, starting with women weavers in Toraja, South Sulawesi. Silonona Sojourns is also planning to expand its current efforts to other regions in Indonesia through a partnership with PEKKA (Women Headed Households) in Flores.


“Silolona and Si Datu Bua are both all-inclusive, fully staffed, 5 cabin and 3 cabin traditional Indonesian wooden boats (phinisi) cruise in east Indonesia and the Andaman Sea.”
Kim, the discoverer.

A Journey to Komodo

Silolona VesselJagged silhouettes of sun drenched hills slipping into countless turquoise bays rimmed with pink sand beaches form the dramatic backdrop for the days idles and adventures. Relaxing on the sun deck sipping a fresh passion fruit frappe, a glass of champagne or a freshly brewed cappuccino, each day the choice is yours. The islands of Komodo are blessed with hundreds of secluded beaches, transparent crystal clear waters, and stunning coral reefs for some of the best diving in the world, waiting to be explored.
Seek your own private haven either onboard or ashore to read a book or simply stroll along a crescent shaped beach where the only footprints are yours or those of a Komodo dragon. While you were out collecting seashells your personal cabin steward has arranged for cold drinks under the white umbrellas in the sand. Late afternoon is the perfect time to gear up for some fishing and nothing is a more welcome addition to sunset cocktails on the aft deck than a delectable dish of freshly caught tuna sashimi.
Night time in Komodo brings its own special magic from dinner on deck under the brilliant stars of the Milky Way constellation to barbeques and bonfires on the beach. It is your personal choice. Shooting stars and glittering phosphorescence fades as you seek the sanctuary of your stateroom to rest up for the next day’s adventures…

With black sails billowing in the wind onboard Silolona, contact us here dream@secret-retreats.com to explore the unspoiled islands of the Komodo Archipelago… or other destinations around Eastern Indonesia.
