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.”

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.
