Why should you travel to Indonesia with us?

Let us take you far beyond the beaches and brunches of Bali. 

Amounting to more than 17,000 islands, our experiences across Indonesia transform as dramatically as its landscapes. Discover hidden coves and local dining in island villages, hike volcanoes to sensational views, glide underwater with giant manta rays before coming face-to-face with the prehistoric Komodo Dragons. Trek through the depths of the Borneo rainforest with skilled trackers, in search of the endangered Sumatran orangutan. Yes, Indonesia has been travelled to, but it hasn’t yet been discovered. Not like this.

Indonesia Highlights

It’s hard not to fall in love with Indonesia. Made up of 17,000 islands, it's no surprise that each one offers a wealth of incredible experiences from wandering around the colourful streets of Ubud, venturing into the quieter islands of Lombok and Java to be mystified by ninth-century Buddhist temples, and sailing through a tropical archipelago to hidden beaches...

INSIDE INDONESIA

Comprised of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia appeals to all walks of life. Some come for the renowned surfing, some to marvel at the jade rice terraces, some to witness the indigenous Komodo dragon and others to dine on exotic cuisine. Never mind your reason for visiting, just one luxury holiday here and you’ll be planning your return before stepping foot off the plane.

Rice fields in Ubud

DISCOVER UBUD

Famed for its reputation as the cultural hub of Bali, Ubud is a jaw-dropping place for a luxurious holiday. Not only do the resorts in Ubud surpass expectations, but there are waterfalls, craft markets, yoga studios, and hiking trails galore. Take a trip to the nearby Mount Batur for an unforgettable sunrise hike and get back in time to witness the glimmering evening light at the Monkey Forest.

PRIVATE TEMPLE TOURS IN INDONESIA

Big, small, over lakes or perched on hillsides, the ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples of Indonesia come in all shapes and sizes. Amongst the most popular are Borobudur, Tanah Lot, and Uluwatu – all dripping in history and mystic. Nonetheless, we don’t believe in sticking with the most famous, and are more than happy to share our behind the scenes insight to curate a perfect holiday.

HIKE MOUNT RINJANI

Looming over Lombok sits Mount Rinjani. By no means an easy feat, ascending this stunning volcano — the second largest in Indonesia — is definitely something to write home about. For those not as enthusiastic about the climb, we still think a trip to this island is well-worth it, even if hiking is substituted with sunbathing.

With our skilled guides, these experiences help bring you face-to-face with the Komodo Dragons of Rinca, uncover hidden waterfalls on uninhabited islands, discover the best lookouts and unique spots to dive down to see the sea turtles, reef sharks and mantas below.

WHERE TO STAY

It’s true what you’ve heard, Indonesia luxury resorts and hotels go above and beyond. Whether you’re looking to bask on breathtaking beaches or explore bustling cities, Indonesia excels in providing an option for every type of traveller. A few things we do know: head to Lombok for barefoot beaches, Ubud for revitalizing greenery, and Moyo for Aman level luxury.

IN THE JUNGLE

Radiating tranquility and brimming with lush vegetation, there isn’t a place that makes us feel more grounded than Bali. While there’s a strong sense of simplicity here, the accommodation is anything but dull. Como Uma Ubud, surrounded by paddy fields and verdant hills, is as close as it gets to laid-back luxury. Jump over to Java and experience the same sort of bliss at the celebrated Amanjiwo.

Karimunjawa beach

AT THE BEACH

The beaches in Indonesia come highly rated and we happen to know a thing or two about where to get your Vitamin D. Kura Kura resort, situated on a tiny island between Java and Borneo, has picture-perfect white sand beaches fringed by towering palms. In Lombok, the Lombok Lodge is the ultimate retreat, offering guests all the essentials for daily snorkelling excursions, romantic dinners, and a glittering pool.
