Archipel 2

The cabins are lavish and carry a modern aesthetic function to them. Each cabin is fully equipped with their own air conditioning with en-suite bathrooms and hot water. The cabins offer stunning views of the ocean, reading lights and ample wardrobe space for your belongings.  After a rigorous diving schedule guest can relax on the sun deck while feeling the soft breeze caressing their skin.  The food on-board is excellent and is normally served in a buffet style and if you have certain food restriction you must give prior notice so that it can be attended too.
