Isle East Indies is set amidst Indonesia’s Thousand Islands (Pulau Seribu), a collection of stunning tropical islands in the Java Sea near to Jakarta. Despite it’s name, The Thousand Islands comprise approximately 130 small islands surrounded by a National Marine Park and hundreds of coral reefs!
Approximately forty miles offshore, Isle East Indies is a beautiful petite jewel in the Java Sea reachable via a leisurely cruise onboard our vintage motor sailing yacht the ‘Raden Mas’. Speedboat transfers are also available for those who prefer the air, excitement and a speedy journey.
The East Indies experience begins at Jakarta’s Ancol Marina Harbour, where guests board our 60ft vintage motor sailing yacht the ‘Raden Mas’. The vessel originated from the English town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, an area synonymous with boat building. Commissioned over 40 years ago by a British aristocrat, she has been immaculately maintained, with timber decks, brass fittings and four cabins characterized by varnished wooden bulk heads and old world charm. In keeping with her aristocratic roots, when she arrived in Indonesia she was renamed ‘Raden Mas’ a Javanese Nobleman’s title.
The journey takes approximately four hours during which drinks and light refreshments are served onboard. After a light meal guests tend to gravitate towards the shaded deck and laze on oversized cushions often spotting dolphins cavorting alongside the bow and enjoying the magical scenery of a number of tiny islands and traditional sailboats.

Isle East Indies mission is to impact as little as possible on the nature of the island. In construction, we sought to minimize our impact on the environment by using recycled building materials almost exclusively bought locally and using the skills of local craftsmen. Committed to ecologically friendly solutions, a septic tank has been installed as well as a desalination plant to ensure guests can enjoy fresh bathroom water. A natural water treatment system takes wastewater from the showers and washbasins, processes it and recycles it for use in the gardens. We minimize our electricity consumption by using low voltage LED and CFL lighting and limited landscape lighting. We avoid using plastic by using refillable bottles in the bathrooms. We purchase as much organic produce as possible and avoid using processed products and produce basics such as juices and pastries ourselves.
