With just one Master Cabin on board, Alexa J is ideal for couples seeking an intimate, romantic, and luxurious sailing experience with world-class service and food. The original boat – built over twenty years ago - was fully refurbished in Portugal in 2017 and relaunched as a luxury private sailing yacht in 2019.
Alexa J is currently the only yacht in the Maldives that is designed for just one couple or a small family. At 38 metres, it is incredibly spacious, and beautifully blends the sense of old-world charm with contemporary comforts. The yacht features a Master Cabin spread across 30 square metres on the main deck with en-suite facilities and a walk-in wardrobe.
The main deck also houses an indoor living room with panoramic views, the bridge and an open-air dining space. The upper deck consists of a rooftop lounge and dining area, as well as an open space for yoga and meditation. The rooftop lounge is ideal for stargazing and for sleeping out under the stars. The lower deck has a playroom with en-suite facilities that can be converted into an additional sleeping area for up to two children, making it perfectly suitable for a small family.
Alexa J’s décor was designed by her owner Veronica Blomgren, who is a renowned interior designer from Moscow. Its design is classic and elegant yet refreshingly contemporary with the shades of mulberry wood complementing the colours of the ocean, exuding an aura of ancient oceanic explorations.
There are six crew members on board, including a cruise director, chef, dive instructor and spa therapist. Menus are bespoke according to your preferences and the chef can masterfully pair them with excellent wines from around the world.
Picture-perfect beaches, sublime marine biodiversity, ultimate luxury, and utmost privacy – the Maldives is one of the finest ‘Sun, Sea & Sand’ destinations in Asia and is also incredibly good for water sports, snorkelling and diving.
To offer you the best of the archipelago both on land and at sea, Alexa J has teamed up with Soneva Fushi – the archipelago’s original barefoot luxury resort - to create a very special programme featuring specially curated and hand-picked experiences by the founders of Alexa Private Cruises and Soneva Group that are sure to create truly memorable moments.
At sea, you will explore the stunning Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, sailing to gorgeous bays with crystal clear waters and golden rocky walls, quaint harbours, and deserted islands where only dolphins will be your company. On land you will get to stay in one of my personal favourite luxury private-island getaways and indulge yourself in fine hospitality, incredible food, wonderfully intimate experiences, and learn about pioneering eco-conservation and sustainability projects.
This is an incredible land and ocean luxury vacation for couples but can also be arrange for small families, as both Alexa J and Soneva Fushi welcome children of any age. A vacation in the Maldives offers an idyllic playground for young children who marvel at the stunning marine life and of course, there are no end of perfect white sandy beaches on which to play. Spend some time learning about marine biodiversity during your holiday and inspire their passion for conservation from a young age!
Featured below is a sample 14-day itinerary that offers unrivalled luxury and privacy. The programme is entirely bespoke and can be amended to suit your specific requirements and interests:

Alexa J is currently located in the Maldives, which lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India in the Indian Ocean. Malé is the primary gateway to this heavenly archipelago, and it is well-connected with major regional and international travel hubs.
Popular Middle Eastern airlines such as Emirates Airline, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways, Asian airlines such as Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Air India, as well as European airlines such as British Airways and Air France offer direct flights to and from Malé. Furthermore, Malé’s international airport can also handle private jets.
The Maldives is one of those rare destinations that is in season all year around. However, the most popular time, when the weather is dry and warm, is between November and April. Being a tropical paradise, the temperatures are consistently in the range of high 20 degrees and low 30 degrees Celsius.
For those seeking ideal sea conditions for diving and snorkelling, January to April is the best time. It is a fantastic destination for Christmas holidays. The manta season runs from May to December in the Baa Atoll.
