Indonesia Holidays

Indonesia is a fiery tropical paradise with lush green landscapes, beautiful beaches and an intriguing cultural mix. The world's largest archipelago is made up of over 17,000 islands and is home to some of the planet's best beaches, from the surfer's paradise of Bali, the paradisiacal volcanic sands of Lombok and the unspoilt cultural utopia of Sumba. It is also a country of diverse beauty, with high snow-capped mountains, eucalyptus savannahs, dramatic rice terraces, lush rainforests and fiery volcanoes. Bali is arguably the jewel in Indonesia's crown;Ubud, in the centre of the island, is recognised as the arts and crafts capital, while Nusa Dua is an ideal base to explore nearby beaches. Bali's lesser-known neighbour, Lombok, is blessed with intriguing temples, ancient palaces and unspoilt beaches. From Lombok you can take a short boat trip to the Gili Islands or Moyo, which offer white sand, vivid waters and spectacular diving and are refreshingly absent from the trapping of modern life, like cars and Wi-Fi. Another fascinating destination is Java, home to the huge Buddhist temple of Borobudur. If it's a unique wildlife experience you are looking for, Komodo National Park is home to the largest living species of lizard in the world –the Komodo dragon. And with all that surrounding ocean you can pretty much guarantee the freshest seafood in the world, cooked simply on a barbecue on the soft white sands. Paradise, found.

Indonesia with A&K
Indonesia
has always provided balm for the mind as well as the body. It's why we offer the unique opportunity to mediate at exquisite Tanah Lot Temple - an experience the emails we receive describe as profoundly moving. The pilgrimage site, perched on an offshore rock, is off-limits to tourists. Not if you are travelling with A&K, however. After cleansing in its sacred spring, you'll pray alongside a priest, before being left in the temple for serene, highly personal mediation.

We can't guarantee you'll find the answer to life and the universe, but it's the type of exclusive access and contacts that puts an Abercrombie & Kent Indonesia holiday ahead of the pack. What else? Well it might be a reading from a traditional astrologer, or supper with Indonesia's greatest living adventurer, documentary maker, Lawrence Blair.

Whatever the excursion, or whatever your request - try us; we really understand Indonesia. Our regional team, established over 30 years, has the knowledge and experience to make it happen, and to link it seamlessly with nearby destinations. The largest archipelago on the planet encompasses Bali, its most famous island. From Ubud's rice terraces, ravines and arts, to the southern beaches of Sanur, Legian and Kuta, and the east's royal culture, a luxury A&K journey brings it vividly to life.

We'd also recommend Komodo National Park - home to the eponymous dragon - and Java, site of UNESCO listed 9th Century temple, Borobudur. While tourists flock there at sunset, your A&K guide instead heads to a nearby hill, where, in glorious isolation, you watch the tropical sun drop behind the temple: precisely the sort of insider knowledge that gives an extra edge to our Indonesian holidays.

It is a year round destination with the western monsoon bringing the wet season from October to April providing nice, warm temperatures and rain in the afternoon, perfect for a nap, especially with a twist of sea-breeze in the coastal areas.
