Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to take a luxury yacht tour of Singapore. The tour, which was organized by one of Capella Singapore’s fantastic Personal Assistants, began at the Marina at Keppel Bay, home to some of the most exclusive yachts and boats in Singapore.
It was a rather cloudy day with a slight threat of rain, however when we got to the marina the skies cleared. As we made our way through the docks, we were greeted by scores of beautiful boats, some for commercial and others for private use. We were on our way to board the SG Yacht, a luxurious 13-seater.
The SG Yacht was beautiful. As we climbed up the deck, we were greeted by a luxuriously cozy “living room” complete with a small coffee table, sofas and a mini television set. The boat also had two bedrooms with beds set nice and high you could literally climb into them. On the deck, we were able to make our way to the helm of the boat and enjoy the glorious sea breeze as the yacht cut deftly through the waters.
The yacht trip would take us all the way to one of the small southern Singapore islands named Lazarus Island before heading back to the marina. Needless to say, the sights were glorious. Just as we were pulling out into the open sea, we passed a familiar sight – the beachfront view of Capella Singapore!
Soon after, we reached Lazarus Island – an uninhabited tropical paradise with a beach so pristine, calm and picturesque. We took some time to explore the island, enjoying all its flora and fauna.
Lazarus Island is just one of the many southern islands of Singapore which are frequent destinations for hired yachts. For the more adventurous, a chartered yacht can even visit exotic locations of Bali, Tioman Island, Phuket and more.
With Singapore being a small island, taking a trip out to sea on a luxury Yacht is definitely something I would recommend to everyone. In fact, the Personal Assistants at Capella Singapore are more than able to help facilitate all the necessary arrangements for chartering a luxury yacht.
