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.

In neighbouring Lombok you'll find temples, palaces and pristine sand, while a short boat hop reveals the Gili Islands' translucent water and superb diving. Talking of which, the nearby marine reserve of Moyo Island witnessed a sartorial rescue by a favourite hotelier. After the airline lost an A&K guest's luggage, Amanwana's GM stepped in, lending his own trunks. The guest's verdict? Some of the world's best snorkelling (he didn't rate the swimwear).

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.

Indonesia is located very close to the Equator which means you have 12 hours of daylight daily. 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. The eastern monsoon brings the drier weather from May to September, which is generally a more popular time to visit
