ARTOTEL Group is proudly to announce its newest hospitality expansion to phinisi yatch with the official management agreement signed between ARTOTEL Group and PT Siji Sysstima.


Due to the change of the real usage of phinisi sailing boat as a traditional sailing boat to carry local goods back in the days for Bugis and Makassar people from South Sulawesi, nowadays phinisi has been transformed into a commercial sailing boat or yatch with luxurious interior design, equipped with advance diving technology and well trained instructors. ARTOTEL Group has been appointed by the phinisi owner, PT Siji Sysstima, to provide one of a kind hospitality experience throughout the guest stay in their phinisi called MALAILLO, the never-ending humming, taken from the ancient word of Bugis.

MALAILLO, a 45m long phinisi yacht is powered to cater 45 people, consisting of exclusive 18 guests and the rest are phinisi sailing crews, complete with facilities such as 8 Guest rooms, Restaurant, Lounge, Sun Deck, Internet Connection, and Diving Equipment. With its elegancy and sophistication in every inch of the phinisi, Malaillo was made straight from Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi, where all the phinisi sailing boat is originally made. Malaillo is expected to sail across Labuan Bajo and Raja Ampat in March 2020, can be exclusively rent for family, corporate, or wedding purpose.

Eduard Rudolf Pangkerego, COO ARTOTEL Group adds,''It is such an honor for ARTOTEL Group to be appointed by Basha G Himawan, CEO PT Siji Sysstama, to operate Phinisi Malaillo. The signed management agreement has made ARTOTEL Group not only operating property in land, but also in sea. As a phinisi operator, we will create one of a kind sailing experience in ARTOTEL style, from the interior with art infused from emerging local artists, 24 hours Food & Beverage experience, and art inspired activities from art exhibition, workshop, and music performance. Not forget to mention that Phinisi Malaillo is using unlimited advance internet connection that makes its passangers are still able to connect with their world easily. Last, We hope with all specialities that Malaillo has, it can be a chosen and most favorite sailing boat for both local and International tourists.
