Cultural Gems of Indonesia... Lombok, Bali & Java

16 days from £4,655 per person

This leisurely journey travels through 3 of Indonesia's main islands; Lombok, Bali & Java taking in the best they have to offer whilst staying at our favourite hotels. This trip begins in Lombok where the pace is an unhurried one. Spend four nights at The Oberoi Lombok where you can relax on the pristine beach leading into the turquoise water. It is perfect for snorkelling and day trips to the Gili Isles.

From here take a catamaran across to Bali and transfer to Ubud, the spiritual centre of Bali. Bambu Indah captures the essence of Ubud with 7 restored antique tribal houses with open air bathrooms. Alternatively stay at COMO Shambhala, a truly heavenly spa retreat set in stunning tropical grounds. Then travel north to Pemuteran to spend 4 nights at Puri Ganesha. This delightfully bohemian hotel is run by the former Egyptologist Diana von Cranach and her charming husband Gusti. If Puri Ganesha was a car it would be a classic yellow convertible Beatle. This is the perfect place to relax and the four private one, two and three bedroom thatched villas each with their own pool overlook the beach with lawns that run down to the sand.

Finish the journey by flying to Yogyakarta to see the awe-inspiring Borobudur temple, as well as the Prambanan temples, both of which give the Temples of Angkor a run for their money. Yogyakarta is fascinating city and worlds apart from Bali & Lombok. Both hotels are fantastic, with Amanjiwo being on the more luxurious side and it directly overlooks Borobudur. 

This is purely a suggested itinerary, so it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made holiday in Indonesia.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
