She and her crew are passionate about sailing and offer cruises around the archipelago of Langkawi on the highest standard possible. Food is cooked fresh on the boats either by Eva herself or by a professional chef and caters on the highest level possible for all nations and diets. The bar is always well stocked up and includes most poplar drinks and spirits.The cruising area is the north east of Langkawi, close to Thailand and covers the most beautiful islands of the archipelago; far off the beaten track.If you opt for a sharing cruise or a private charter – you will be in good hands!

This review is going to fly in the face of some of the previous reviews but please bare with me.

We went on Eva's cruise 5 or so days after staying in Langkawi. Up until the day of the cruise we had experienced nothing but incredible service from the Malay people at our resort as well as on other tours and just generally around the island itself.

For $300 AUD per couple our expectation of the cruise was for a similar experience however we were really let down.

Don't get me wrong. If you are are a smoker and keen for a party then take a trip on the Damai Indah. Eva and her crew will more than likely to make your day.

If you're not a smoker and you want a nice cruise with a few drinks and are interested in some info on the islands and surroundings then I suggest to find another cruise. Apparently Rampant Sailing are far more professional if that's what you're after.

We were put off by the staff constantly smoking rolly's around us as well as drinking and eating the food. At the end of the cruise after a long day there was an incident when paying for the trip. Eva went off her tree at the bar staff at the local bar. We stood around for 20 minutes waiting for the reconciliation and it was a really crap way to finish the day.

I don't really care who was right or wrong, but after paying $300 I'd have preferred a much more professional outcome.

I celebrated my 50th birthday in Langkawi with a sunset cruise and a dinner party at a deserted island and I can highly recommend Eva and her company Damai Indah Luxury Cruises to organize a special event.
We were 45 people on 2 boats receiving deluxe service from the friendly and very helpful crew and a fabulous personal touch by Eva. The whole team went out of their way to create an experience of a lifetime... from start to finish!
The food was superb and more than lived up to my expectations as did the flow of party bubbly and drinks to suit everybody's taste. The boats are beautiful and extremely well maintained, safety levels good, cleanliness very good, decoration a plus and an elegant touch using real crystal glasses for everything. And the whole party was tailor-made to my requirements.
This company has style and class!
It was my dream party come true! Everybody LOVED it!
Thank you so much Eva and crew. You are all absolutely fabulous!

Eva and her crew did whatever needed to make us feel comfortable, safe and the food was 1st class freshly cooked made from local quality ingredients including vegetarian and organic food. Everyone was very happy and it is amazing how this great woman gets along with everyone and made all of us feel we are family. Thanks Eva for a great day and next time we will be back and more and more to come!!!

If you are going to do anything in Langkawi, you have to cruise on the Damai Indah. It's an intimate experience with only a handful of fellow cruisers, fabulous food and plenty of alcohol as you cruise around beautiful Langkawi right into sunset.

Thank you Eva, Citi and Captain Dean for making us feel like family and for helping us celebrate our honeymoon in style with champagne, flowers and even a special ceremony. It was an experience that won't be forgotten :)

After reading lots of reviews we decided on booking 'a day in paradise' with eva on her boat the Damai Indah-an excellent decision! The reviews are all correct! Even though we were the only 2 booked on the trip they still took us out-we couldn't believe it-it was like having our own personal charter! The cocktails and food were amazing. Fresh ingredients all cooked on board and served in a beautiful way. We borrowed the kayak and went to an isolated beach and spent some time swimming. Unfortunately it began to heaviliy rain and we had to return to the harbour early but we stayed on board chatting to captain dean, siti and Eva whilst enjoying the free bar and watching the activity in the harbour. An amazing experience-you will not be disappointed booking this trip.
