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 traveled to, but it hasn’t yet been discovered. Not like this.

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.

Top Locations in Indonesia

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Indonesia, we’d go for these.
Komodo National Park, Indonesia

Komodo National Park

Adventure calls in the Komodo isles.

Cruising through the calm waters of Komodo feels almost otherworldly as you pass the Jurassic Park-like islands and their rolling hills. Rivalling the rich biodiversity and jaw-dropping scenery is the dynamic marine life and color-splashed coral that lay beneath the surface. 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.  

Bali in Indonesia

Bali and Lombok

A classic combination of two neighboring islands – with a twist.

In the cultural center of Bali, our guide Budi will unveil layers of history at Ubud’s ancient temples before introducing you to your very own blessing ceremony. Expect yoga classes in tropical surroundings, private surf lessons on the coast of Uluwatu and sunrise hikes along the unbeaten tracks of Lombok’s Mount Rinjani. Then slow down the tempo with a private dinner in unusual settings, impressive Balinese performances and relaxed cruises on a catamaran to the charming Nusa Lembongan as wild dolphins skim by.

Sumba in Indonesia


Barefoot luxury and private hideaways in Sumba.

Wind down your Indonesian getaway in barefoot luxury. Unwind among the pristine beaches and discover the charming coves of Sumba by private boat. Our private guides will bring you to spots like Weekuri Lake, whose emerald water creates a phenomenal glow as the sun sets on its surface. And explore the cascading waterfalls and exotic flora in Sumba Menupeu Tanah Daru National Park with a skilled naturist as we introduce you to the rare plant life, hornbills and diverse wildlife that live here.
