Location & Directions
Moyo Island, Indonesia
Amanawana is the only resort on Pulau Moyo (Moyo Island), a pristine nature reserve 15km north of the coast of larger Sumbawa Island, just east of Bali and Lombok.
When to go
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – wet and dry – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Indonesia at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
