An intoxicating mix of volcanic islands, stunning beaches and wild adventure. Travel to Indonesia in style as we take you beyond the tourist trail to discover the marvellous culture, characters and cuisines of this spiritual nation.

Why travel to Indonesia

With more than 18,000 islands scattered across nearly eight million square kilometres of tropical ocean, Indonesia embodies an extraordinary variety of geography and hundreds of distinct island cultures. Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumba and Moyo to name but a few – all have individual characteristics and need to be approached in different ways, with specialist advice on each for the perfect luxury holidays and honeymoons.
As just one example, a road trip from Central Java to Bali is unforgettable: aptly nicknamed the ‘route of the volcanoes’, this intoxicating Indonesia travel itinerary allows more exploratory travellers to experience unspoilt Indonesia, while still staying in extremely comfortable accommodation.
On Bali, a night at a Balinese Princess’s palace under the shadow of Agung volcano; a day with a personal shopper discovering the island’s most stylish sources of jewellery, fabrics and accessories (or a week sourcing fabulous furniture); a Hindu festival in a hideaway village – this is a side of Bali that few visitors see. Having travelled to Bali extensively and discovered how easy and rewarding it is to get off the beaten track, we encourage our clients to do so too and experience the real Bali with one of our cultural guides.

Many thanks for one of the best holidays we have ever had. Indonesia certainly exceeded our expectations. The schedule was the perfect balance between planned activities and plenty of time for relaxation.

The visit to the Prambanan temples was superb. The location, accommodation, amenities, food and hospitality at the Plataran were all first-rate and the itinerary was a good combination of relaxation to get over travel weariness and activities to explore the richness of the temples and countryside.

Bawah Private Island! Well, what can we say?! The warmth of the reception by the staff at the jetty was not simply a show for incoming guests but lasted for the whole of our stay. We were always greeted by smiles and often addressed by our first names Bopak Roland and Ibu Denise.
