Alila Purnama translates to "full-moon" and is built in the style of the Bugis pirates of Indonesia. It was built by a wealthy couple who intended to sail the seas for a two-year voyage, but after batten down the hatches a few times on their own, they signed the great ship over to the Alila Hotel group.

The ship has full dining service on its 3 decks nightly, but the crew also offers the Robinson Crusoe restaurant experience set up on a nearby island. It's lit by flickering lanterns and the meals are delivered by motorboat.
