Luxury Indonesia Holidays

Bali, big beaches and bigger cities

Indonesia

Indonesia is a country of contrasts; an untamed volcanic landscape rich in biodiversity that rubs shoulders with mega-cities and desert islands. Its capital, Jakarta, is its biggest city - an urban sprawl of nine million people with a mix of full-throttle nightlife and Indonesia’s burgeoning bohemian scene.

The country counts thousands of inhabited islands (and even more uninhabited) in its sprawl, and easily the biggest pull is Bali. It has the beaches – the proper paradise-island kind – shrouded in soaring volcanic scenery, thick jungle and rice paddies. It’s big on culture, too, freckled with distinctive black temples that host traditional ceremonies.
Destinations in Indonesia
Bali
Bali balances between the volcanic islands of Java and Lombok. It’s something of a tropical daydream, featuring palm-brushed beaches, waterfall-splashed rainforests and spiritual retreats.

Flight Information

Indonesia is around 16 hours' flight from the UK.

When to go

Indonesia’s tropical climate is ruled by two distinct seasons. The rainy season lasts from around November to February, while the dry season is May to September. The summer months are therefore the best time to go, with temperatures hanging in the late 20s. Aim for early summer if you’re after less humidity and quieter beaches.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Indonesia for 30 days or less.

Tipping

Tipping isn’t particularly common in Indonesia. As a rule of thumb, services charges are added to the bill at restaurants and hotels. If you would like to tip your waiter for exceptional service, aim for 10,000 to 20,000 rupiah, and make sure you put it in their hand. The same goes for hotel porters and private drivers, although taxi drivers won’t normally expect a tip.
