There’s a magic in the air on the Indonesian tropical islands of Bali, Java and Lombok. It permeates everything here with a very unique feeling of sheer calm and relaxation. This is a very special destination indeed. Brimming with rich and vibrant cultures, and blessed with a plethora of perfectly pristine beaches, Indonesia offers her visitors a superb luxury holiday experience. If you’ve not visited this part of Asia before, prepare to experience a true sense of balance on a holiday here. Between the style, relaxation, and culture of these islands, we know that you’ll return rejuvenated by this unique and mystical place.
There are few places in the world with such a truly stunning range of luxury 5 star hotels as Indonesia. We have extensively explored these islands, and are proud to present to you our hand-picked selection of the very best resorts. These are some seriously architectural and style-led wonders, like exist nowhere else in Asia. Some are perched dramatically on clifftops and some are nestling in perfect harmony in lush green tropical valleys.
If it’s remote tropical jungle paradise you’re looking for, head to the rich cultural heartland of Bali’s Ubud. Here, gaze in awe at the illuminous giant green steps of the ancient rice terraces, before exploring the local markets for some handmade crafts and homewares. For some serious beachside luxury, visit Bali’s coastal resorts of Jimbaran or Nusa Dua. If it’s fashion, nightlife, boutiques and some of the Far East’s most chic dining destinations that you’re after, seek solace in Seminyak and her array of stunning hotels.
The neighbouring islands of Lombok and the more distant Gilis have much to offer and provide a perfectly relaxed counterbalance to a visit to Bali, and Destinology can arrange twin or multi-centre stays, at the region’s finest hotels.
The perfect time for a visit Indonesia is from May to September, which is the region’s dry season. It is during these months when the sunshine and temperatures are bound to please, with dry warm days at around 28°C. However Indonesia is perfect and quieter at other times of the year too, but we’d recommend visiting before mid-October, when the seasonal rains begin, stretching through to around March time the next year. Even during the wet season however, this part of Asia is a good destination, as the rains are often sporadic and heavy, during dry and sunny days. We love the rainy season here at Destinology, because it’s during these months that the illuminous green lushness of the islands really comes to life!
