We were recently on a family vacation from the states. Staying on the island Koh Yao Noi December 16th - 22nd. I'll try and save you most of the detail, but without the crew and captain (I believe captain Addy)of this ship spotting me and my daughter in the ocean, and then rescuing us, things would have gone from bad...

Dear Curt, Thank you for the review of our business and the glowing praise of our staff. I am so pleased that we could help and avert any tragedy. We try hard to live by a set of principals and incidents like this show the real value of this. Come and visit us next time you are in Thailand again,... More

What a wonderful holiday - spent 8 days on here with family and friends. The staff are all No.1; helpful, friendly, skilled - just really made the holiday. The boat is magnificent, the staff made sure we saw lots of hidden gems either in the zodiac, the canoes, snorkelling or from the boat. The food was fantastic and plentiful and... More

The crew was pleasant, the boat well appointed, and the food excellent. The boat we were on came with beer and mixers and we brought our own liquor. We did day cruises to the James Bond Islands, and I thought it was an excellent way to spend the day. Oh--they provide outstanding popcorn, roasted peanuts, and massages in the afternoon... More

We spent two nights on the Merdeka in early June. The weather stayed wonderful for us. We were 5 families with children ranging from 4 to 14 years. The boat was perfect for our high energy kids who loved jumping off into the sea, kayaking and exploring the island caves. The captain Adi was hugely knowledgeable about the area and... More

I contacted Neil as I was looking to charter a private boat to propose to my girlfriend. Neil responded straight away with lots of ideas and positive energy as to how I could do it and where during the cruise. The crew was fantastic, they played along from A to Z. We had the whole superb boat just for ourselves,... More

We spent 2 days (1 night) on this boat and we were a group of 8 people in their 30s with 2 very young kids (1 year and 4 months old). We just loved it! The staff was super friendly, and very relaxed so we could just cool down for a weekend away from Singapore. They recommended some very nice... More

We spent 2 amazing days on Merdeka Spa Boat. It was incredible, the staff was very professional, the boat is new and the massage is just heavenly :). It was the best experience that we had during our 2-weeks stay in Phuket.

Very well looked after by the owners and the staff - we went to Coral Island for our 25th wedding anniversary - did some snorkelling and had a beautiful lunch - would recommend to anyone that wants to have a party or wedding on the boat

A group of 8 of us (2 families with kids ranging from 2 to 9 years old) spent 2 nights and 3 days on the boat sailing around the Andaman Sea. We had an absolutely amazing time. Visited beautiful islands that we would not otherwise have known about, and generally avoided much of the tourist crush that swarm onto the... More
