Luxury holidays in Indonesia

With a thousands-strong archipelago’s worth of white-sand beaches, balmy waters and jungle-clad peaks to choose from, there’s an island idyll for everyone in Indonesia. Bali still reigns supreme for sun, sand and sybaritic nights. Live like a local on a lesser-known isle: learn the age-old rituals of Sumba, or dive into Java’s artistic soul in the busy, batik-patterned streets of Yogyakarta. Hang ten in Lombok, answer the call of the wild in the nature and marine reserves of Moyo Island, or simply soak up the sun on the secluded sands of Bawah.

Destinations in Indonesia

  • The remote Anambas Archipelago is formed of a scattering of lush and forested islets in pristine azure waters, perfect for outdoor adventurers and couples seeking far-flung romance.
  • Tan-hungry bodies beautiful come for Bali's sun, sand and surf; fashionistas flock to the Seminyak night scene, and urban escapists head here for stress-easing jungle tranquillity.
  • Indonesian isle Gili Air is the picture of serene paradise, with crystal-clear waters and beautiful beaches.
  • Gorgeous, tropical Lombok is a life-enhancing antidote to bright lights and bling for honeymooning couples who prefer their barefoot luxury to be less bland.
  • If you love Bali, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven when you set foot on wildly beautiful, crowd-free Moyo Island, a nature and marine reserve a short flight away in Indonesia's Nusa Tenggara archipelago.
  • An archipelago of more than 1,500 thickly-forested islands separated by turquoise water, Raja Ampat is paradise for divers, naturalists and beach lovers.
  • ‘Undiscovered tropical idyll’ barely does it justice – with perfect beaches, swirling cerulean surf and lush tropical forests, the island of Sumba, almost untouched by tourism, is somewhere you’ll want to keep to yourself…
  • Yogyakarta may be difficult to pronounce, but it's easy to love: it has temples to rival Angkor Wat; a centuries-long history as a centre of academia and the arts, and an atmospheric mountain backdrop.
