The Ilma features a total of 228 suites, each with a private terrace overlooking the ocean, a walk-in wardrobe and king beds. The new yacht also features an expanded marina which allows guests to relax while enjoying the view or engage in watersports directly from the yacht.

Guests aboard the Ilma can look forward to personalized service and amenities including a personal concierge and 24-hour in-suite dining.

The yacht also features a variety of dining venues onboard inspired by local cuisines from around the world such as the Mediterranean or Southeast Asia. Aside from the Ochre Room, the main restaurant with seasonal menus, the Ilma features a private enclave for an exclusive dining experience. Guests can also enjoy the Talaat Nam, a sushi bar with an indoor and outdoor setting as well as a poolside eatery.

The Ilma will embark on its inaugural season in 2024 with itineraries ranging from seven to eleven nights. The yacht will mostly be deployed in the Caribbean and Europe.
