SET SAIL

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Hot Seat -

Those seek­ing a med­i­ta­tive re­treat will find Guntu (http:// guntu.jp) a lit­tle piece of heaven on earth – or wa­ter, for that mat­ter. A lux­ury ves­sel with just 19 rooms de­signed in the style of tra­di­tional ryokan, this 3,000 ton­ner – which em­barked on its maiden jour­ney in Oc­to­ber last year – sails on the tran­quil wa­ters of the Seto In­land Sea. The two- and four-day jour­neys of­fered are per­fect ex­cuses to go com­pletely off the grid. Re­cal­i­brate in its gen­er­ously sized rooms that boast a ter­race and even an open-air bath, as well as re­ju­ve­nate at the spa on board. Also, nour­ish your body with the cre­ations of chef Kenzo Sato (pre­vi­ously from the two-Miche­lin-star Shigeyoshi in Tokyo) and sushi master chef Nobuo Sakamoto, made us­ing the fresh­est catch of the day – taken to the boat di­rectly by lo­cal fish­er­men.
