Well what can I say. I certainly had a 50th birthday party to remember on Haruku.

Right from the start Widya was helpful and responsive to my numerous requests and questions. As I was booking the boat sight unseen from Sydney I had to reply on photos, reviews and answers to my many questions.

Widya was always so friendly and also aided in getting additional quotes for add ons that I wanted to enhance the experience and trip. At all times I felt like I was in good hands with Widya and I can tell that she truly loves what she does.

When arriving at the dock to board I was not disappointed. Haruku is huge and very much impressive. My friends had gone an hour earlier to style for the event and everything was absolutely perfect.

We decided to go all out and also hired a DJ, photographer, videographer, cocktail barman and two masseuses. This all added to experience and made our guest feel extra spoilt.

The hour or so trip out to the islands is open sea so it was great that we had the stability of such a big boat. Even if you don’t usually experience sea sickness I would recommend you take some tablets prior to boarding so you truly have “smooth sailing”.

We visited two islands and the water was crystal clear. At the second stop we were taken by the very friendly and wonderful crew on the tender to snorkel and explore the pristine reefs - such a highlight for so many on board. It truly was a beautiful sight to behold.

There were stand up paddle boards for the active and floating sea mattresses for those who preferred to chill with a cocktail and soak up the ambiance and sunshine.

Lunch on board was a fabulous seafood BBQ that was fresh, tasty and super filling. Everyone went back for seconds and there was still plenty of food. Generous serves indeed.

The boat was truly the ultimate party venue and we got to explore parts of Bali that many of us have never seen before and were so glad we did.

We are planning on a return trip next year and we will be booking with Pulau Luxury Charters again to take the family out to explore the reefs and islands.

Pricing is very competitive and the service friendly and top notch. Do not be put off by a recent review about the boat that I feel was very harsh and was not what myself or my 20 guests experienced at all.

So happy that we chose Haruku for the party of my dreams and wish we could do it all again tomorrow!

We had a group of 14 and this was a great way to get out and see the beautiful sea life of Bali. A few in our group did scuba dive off the boat and most others snorkeled. We all agreed this was some of the best snorkeling we've seen. We weren't in crowded tourist areas so we really got to enjoy the water as a small group. Lunch on the boat was excellent and the service was friendly. The boat was clean and comfortable.

We chartered "Haruku" with Pulau Luxury Charters in March of 2020. It was pretty much a perfect day. We cruised over to nearby Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida islands, where we snorkeled, lounged on rafts, sunbathed and relaxed. The staff were super attentive and friendly. The lunch they cooked on board was unanimously the best food the group had ever had on a boat. It was seriously that good! Our perfect day was topped off by a sunset cruise home, which was pretty magical. I will definitely be booking another charter with Pulau Luxury Charters the next time I'm back in Bali.

Excellent boat, staff, scenery and all around good time.

The price included transportation from your hotel, drinks, snorkel gear and snacks.

The crew was fun and engaging. Indonesia 's beauty was breath taking from the boat.

We fished, snorkled, paddle boarded and laughed all day.

Highly recommend for a family outing while visiting Bali.

I charted the Jemme for my birthday. It's a beautiful boat. There was Wifi on board so we were able to play our own music. They gave me a great birthday cake and lunch was delicious. They had the alcohol that we requested and we were able to take the leftover bottles and mixers with us. The staff was so friendly. I wish they had been a little more attentive. I wish they would have kept our drinks refilled and regularly checked to see if we needed anything while we were hanging out on the deck. But it was a great experience. The photographer took some amazing pictures of my friends and me. Definitely worth the money!

Be careful! This is not as advertised. We visited 2 places to snorkel: the first, the current was too strong and the second was a private area and we were asked to leave. We hired a JetSki but it was not there. They did try to arrange another, but it broke down.

Our sandwiches were covered in mold. Inedible. We were told you could purchase alcohol on board, this is not correct. Bring your own.

We spent 3 hours sitting on a boat on a dock. We did not visit any beaches to swim at, we did not visit different islands, or see any unique any of the places as shown in the pictures on the website. The website is misleading!

Its an ok boat ride (I like boat rides) but it’s not luxury, you are not visiting the places shown on the website and most of the “inclusions” are not available - bring your own food, bring your own drinks, snd don’t pay in advance for any extras as they are a ‘maybe’ on the day.

Haruku charter review
We just had a very interesting day out on Haruku. As I said to the management and the crew afterwards, our party of 10 were brilliantly looked after. We were picked up promptly from our villa. The crew on board were magnificent. Very friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. The much was great. The entertainment was super - paddle boards, snorkelling and even some top scuba diving. However, there is one underlying issue. And it’s quite important. The boat. OMG it’s old and tired. All the promotional videos, the photos etc are all from 2015. Fast forward 7 years and jeez we were misrepresented. Rust, faded safety signs, smell of diesel etc alll contributed to what should have been the best day of the holiday something of a shocker. Obviously Palau Charters now have my money and the day has passed. So if you’re going to book, please beware……

We booked the catamaran and crew for a special birthday charter and it was even better than we had hoped! Full crew to serve drinks while we sailed, gorgeous scenery and excellent facilities on board, delicious seafood buffet and a sail home in the evening under the full moon! Amazing! A once in a lifetime experience!

We had the BEST day of our holiday on this boat trip. We hired the Haruku, it was very easy to book and the staff and crew just made the day so special.
We visited Manta Bay and snorkelled with manta-rays which was an incredible experience, the crew put in so much effort to find the mantas and we wouldn’t have seen them if they hadn’t.
The food was incredible considering we were on a boat, and snorkelling in the mangrove was some of the best I’ve done.
Kayaks and paddle boards too which were really fun.
We were also lucky enough to see dolphins and turtles on our trip which added to the excitement.
I have to say that the crew really made this day special, the boat is great but definitely not luxury as it is getting rather old, but that didn’t affect our amazing day, and I can’t fault the company and crew, thank you for such a great time, and making it so easy for us to just enjoy ourselves, worth every penny!

Had a day charter with JEMME. With 9 adults as a family together with 4 crews.
Heading our way slow & steady towards LEMBONGAN island. Had our lunch on boat freshly cook with our chef.Tasty!
Boat is spaces enough for us as most time hanging in the front.Didn't really use the "bedroom'. Crews took us for snorkelling and did some fun & magic trick.Good entertainment was given. Great job guys !
