Fly to Java, a volcanic and rugged island with rural local villages and amazing trekking opportunities. Explore the 8th century Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur and the ancient Hindu complex, Prambanan, containing hundreds of temples strewn across the plains. In the evenings, retreat to the exclusive Amanjiwo by elephant back. Located within a natural amphitheater, Amanjiwo reflects the style of Borobudur that can be viewed from the terrace of the restaurant and bar.
Next stop is Bali for a few nights at the beautiful Amandari, set in the stunning jungle-clad valleys of central Bali. The Ayung River snakes through the valley below and your arrival is heralded by the many tropical birds that flit through the palms overhead. Explore the quaint and quirky town of Ubud, with its markets, temples, cafes and galleries, before retiring to Amandari and its sumptuous surroundings.
Following a 3 night stay, board a charter sea plane to Moyo Island, a tiny jewel set amidst turquoise waters. Here you will find the exclusive tented camp of Amanwana, a collection of luxury tents surrounded by tropical forest and the Flores Sea, ringed with coral reef. Spend your days cruising on the luxury boats exploring deserted beaches, experience some of the best diving in the Indonesian Archipelago, or explore the hills of the island which are home to a variety of animal life, from deer and macaque monkeys to wild boar.
Back to mainland Bali and stay at Amankila on the tranquil east coast of the island. Traditional life can still be found in this scenic, peaceful area and the scenery is stunning, with Mount Agung rising in the background. Visit local markets at dawn to choose ingredients for your cooking class and stop off at the Hindu temples on your way back to Amankila. The views from the three-tiered pool at Amankila are second to none, with panoramic views out over the Lombok Straits.
Location & Directions
Java, Ubud, Moyo Island & Manggis
The first destination is Amandari, located in the village of Kedewatan on the fringe of Bali’s cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, the resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. From there it's onto Amanawana, 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. Then to Amankila which is dotted around the verdant cliffs of Indrakila with views overlook the Lombok Strait, near Manggis in the Karangasem Regency of eastern Bali. The final destination is Amanjiwo which rests in the breathtakingly beautiful rural heartland of Central Java. Java is framed by the Indian Ocean in the south and the Java Sea in the north with Sumatra on its west coast and Bali to the east.
When to go
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – 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 Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
