Indonesia

Overview

We are spoilt for choice with this vast archipelago stretched out on our doorstep, enticing us with exotic cultural delights and some of the best resorts and villas on the planet.

Indonesia is an intoxicating cocktail of gorgeous sunshine, stunning white sandy beaches and warm, soothing seas; into that mix you’ve got beautiful architecture, diverse Muslim and Hindu cultures and tongue-tingling food.

Let Lightfoot Travel help you experience the majesty of Java’s royal palaces, coffee plantations and jungle-clad volcanoes. This is an island of such contrasts – from capital Jakarta city, cultural Borobodur, Mount Bromo’s peaks and the depths of Kawah Ijen’s crater lake – it is certainly meant to be savoured slowly.

Hop over to Bali, ‘Island of the Gods’, which ticks so many things off the tropical traveller’s wish list: culture and history, pristine beaches and jungles, superb spas and eateries, with a choice of luxury resorts, hotels and villas to suit all tastes.

Neighbouring Lombok’s gleaming sands, thatched huts and turquoise seas are the stuff of dreams. The nearby Gili Islands promise scuba-diving a quick speedboat away from its sandy shores which a string of beach bars, resturants and small hotels welcome hundreds every day.

Journey further into Indonesia’s remote crystal-clear waters. Raja Ampat, epi-centre of the Coral Triangle, boasts some of the best scuba diving in Asia. Raja Ampat, meaning Four Kings, is a magnificient archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals in Indonesia’s West Papua province, which centre around the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo.

Scattered throughout the arcihpelago are some beautiful private island resorts on Joyo, Sumba and Moyo Island boasting the best retreats in the barefoot luxury.

But if you ask us, our favourite Indonesian escape has to be on a luxury liveaboard cruising islands, waking up to a different horizon everyday. We are a team of avid divers and nothing makes us happier to share our favourite dive spots in the region with you.

With such diversity, is it surprising Indonesia tops our list of cultural escapes? Get in touch for your own tailor-made Indonesia itinerary. Whether you’re planning a romantic honeymoon, a family holiday, or if you simply need a quick fix of sun and fantastic food, our portfolio of boutique hotels and luxury villas will ensure you are hosted in style.
