The island of Bali is an international tourist destination and is home to a number of luxury resorts, restaurants and 5-Star residences. As a result, high quality supplies and provisioning can be sourced and regular imports mean that most items, however unusual, can be arranged. Across Indonesia, supplies are considerably more limited although this situation is improving. The Lighthouse Consultancy understands the importance of yacht provisioning to the success of every cruise and provides direct and personal support to the yacht. A unique level of attention is paid to the sourcing, packing and shipping process, putting years of living on the island to maximum effect.
