Indonesia vacations

Relax on Bali and explore Indonesia's lesser known islands on your tailor-made tour or honeymoon

With more than 17,000 islands, and seemingly as many different cultures and peoples, Indonesia offers a wide spectrum of experiences and destinations to explore. Our specialists have journeyed extensively across the islands, from volcanic forest-draped peaks to low-lying atolls, and can tailor-make you an Indonesian vacation to match your preferences, suggesting expert local guides and characterful places to stay.

Bali attracts the most visitors with its stretches of golden sand and vivid rice paddies. The islands of Lombok, Sumba and Komodo are less visited, with near-deserted beaches, thick rainforests and coral-rich seas. Java smoulders with volcanoes, which form a backdrop to extravagant temple complexes such as Borobudur. The vast pristine jungles of Kalimantan and Sumatra shelter orangutans and rare flora, while the remote island of Sulawesi celebrates its ancient cultures with vibrant celebrations and rituals.
