Boat Description

The newest boat of the 'Spa Boat' fleet is Merdeka 3, a 30 metre (100 ft.) traditional Indonesian phinisi. Exploring some of the most beautiful sites in Thailand, this liveaboard accommodates 14 guests within 6 cabins. Of the 6 cabins, 4 are equipped with a king-size bed and 2 have a king-size and single bed. All cabins feature en-suite, hot water, and AC. A large shaded sun deck provides space for sunbathing while guests can experience freshly-prepared authentic Thai and Western food while onboard. Over 4 nights, experience the 'Dive 'n' Chill Cruise', which visits the incredible Phi Phi Islands, Koh Mai Thon, Koh Rok, Hin Daeng, and Hin Maeng. The Merdeka 3 offers guests the chance to experience scuba diving in Thailand while also leaving time for exploring, swimming, and kayaking. Averaging 2 dives a day, guests can use their evenings to venture onto the islands or party until late at the Phi Phi Islands. With full-board, beer, wine, and massage available onboard, the Merdeka 3 offers a unique liveaboard experience.
