BOOK

Your Host & The Team


“My goal was to create a traditional hand crafted vessel that speaks of the history of the Spice Trade and embodies the spirit of the Indonesian Archipelago while ensuring the highest international standards for safety, comfort , service and cuisine. In order to accomplish this goal a mutually respectful bridge between the knowledge and skill of the traditional boat builders and modern western marine technology had to be established.

Silolona is the embodiment and realization of that dream and is already being called the Ultimate Phinisi, truly a modern classic. Secret Retreats shares the same values and respect for people and traditions.”


Patti Seery – Cultural Liaison and Conservation

Patti Seery has been actively involved with the rich and vibrant cultures of the Dani and Asmat peoples of Irian Jaya since moving to Indonesia in 1983. Over the past several decades, Patti has served as a cultural liaison, arranged exhibitions, led cultural exchange tours and initiated a significant local mapping project in the province. She has also been extensively involved in the preservation and recognition of Asmat art, organising both a private exhibition and leading a major collection trip, which resulted in establishing the largest repository of Asmat art in the United States. Patti is on the Board of the American Museum of Asmat Art and the Indo-Pacific Conservation Alliance, and helped found LMAA, an association of Asmat people for Asmat cultural preservation.

In 2000, Patti began the ambitious project of building MSV Silolona. In leading journeys on this extraordinary vessel, as well as Si Datu Bua, Patti passionately continues her goal of serving as a bridge between indigenous peoples and visitors with the larger aims of cultural preservation and cross cultural understanding.

We Care

 

Founded by American-born architect and founder of Silolona Sojourns Patti Seery who is based in Indonesia, Patti became involved with the Asmat and Dani Tribes of Papua 30 years ago, and actively acts as a liaison between these fascinating yet vanishing cultures and some of the world’s leading institutions of cultural preservation including The Smithsonian, The Field Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago. She takes great pride in these and other ethnic groups’ rich traditions and customs across the vast Indonesian archipelago.

As a member of The Indo-Pacific Conservation Alliance (IPCA), a non‐profit biodiversity conservation organisation that focuses on the Pacific region, Silonona Sojourns currently participates in ongoing field projects in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In addition, Silolona Sojourns is a vast supporter of marine conservation including supporting the conservation films of Shawn Heinrichs (Blue Sphere Media) and his work on the preservation of the Mantas in Indonesia, and Yayasan Toraja Melo (YTM), which aims to rejuvenate Indonesian indigenous arts & crafts whist improving the welfare of indigenous artisans and farmers, starting with women weavers in Toraja, South Sulawesi. Silonona Sojourns is also planning to expand its current efforts to other regions in Indonesia through a partnership with PEKKA (Women Headed Households) in Flores.

Thank you for a fabulous time!

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions. The accommodation was superb and the island was amazing. Again, thank you for a fabulous time! I will be looking at your website for similar accommodation.

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“Silolona and Si Datu Bua are both all-inclusive, fully staffed, 5 cabin and 3 cabin traditional Indonesian wooden boats (phinisi) cruise in east Indonesia and the Andaman Sea.”

Kim, the discoverer.
