Boutique Indonesia... Sun, Sand & Stylish Hotels in Lombok, Bali & Moyo Island
15 days from £9,700 for 2023 per person
This quirky tour spans the tropical islands of Lombok, Bali and Moyo Island staying in some of Indonesia’s most stylish ‘hidden gem’ hotels. Start in Lombok, which has a remarkably innocent and untrampled vibe with white sandy beaches, cows strolling idly through coconut groves and village mosques humming with the call to prayer.
The Sira peninsula is the most exclusive area and it is just 10 minutes by speed boat from the Gili Islands for some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Asia. Cosy up in the tropical oasis of Lombok Lodge, a chic 9-room boutique hotel, before enjoying an adventurous night at Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp, an extraordinary eco-retreat located on a whiter-than-white scoop of sand in the remote southeast of Lombok.
In neighbouring Bali, hide away in our new secret discovery, Surya Shanti Villa, a boutique resort secluded in the luscious interior of the island and just 1 hour from Ubud for fantastic shops and art galleries. Surrounded by views of emerald rice paddies, Mt Agung volcano and dramatic valley views, Surya Shanti offers the archetypal Balinese idyll that everyone is looking for on the island but simply can’t find!
Next head to the delightfully bohemian beach hotel, Puri Ganesha, in the northwest coast of Bali. It is run by Diana Von Cranach, a renowned Cordon Bleu trained chef, Egyptologist, cookery book author and interior designer turned hideaway hotelier… She is a brilliant raconteur and enormously fun to be around.
Continue on to the luxurious tented camp of Amanwana on the beautiful far-flung island of Moyo Island. Getting there is half the fun and your sea-plane journey will be a lasting memory! There is an abundance of activities from night snorkelling to sailing or just enjoy pure unadulterated relaxation. Surrounded by the turquoise waters and marine-rich reefs of the Flores Sea, the island is 350 square kilometres with vegetation ranging from savannah to tropical jungle which is home to a wonderful array of bird life, deer, wild boar, macaque monkeys, sea eagles and osprey.
Next, take the seaplane back to Bali and enjoy your final night in the lap of luxury at the impossibly sexy and slick Alila Villa Uluwatu set on the edge of a limestone cliff with dramatic views over the ocean.
