Discover Indonesia’s most beloved island on this week-long itinerary, combining the cultural riches and lush countryside of Ubud with the calm seas and sandy beaches of Bali’s southeast coast.
From boutique Bali retreats to an intimate paradise on Lombok, this 10 night Bali and Lombok itinerary is perfect for honeymooners and couples seeking a romantic Indonesian escape.
Bali is a much-loved beach destination and thanks to long swathes of sandy beach, seriously laid-back vibes and rugged coastlines, it is easy to see why. In Bali, no beach is the same, meaning that whatever your idea of paradise may be, there is bound to be a beach that ticks all the boxes for you. With each stretch of coastline offering something different, it is often difficult to know where to start when it comes to discovering Bali’s hidden coves, forgotten bays and sugar white beaches. To help, we’ve handpicked a few of our favourite Balinese beaches, choosing where’s best and for who.
Bali is loved by honeymooners and with its idyllic beaches, stunning boutique hotels and secluded settings, it is no surprise. We’ve shortlisted a handful of our favourite properties which are perfect for a post-nuptial celebration or simply a romantic retreat.
Indonesia is a melting pot of cultures, religions and peoples and its diversity is no more obvious than in its temples. Perched precariously on vertiginous clifftops, floating on serene lakes, and relentlessly pummelled by the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, the setting of Indonesia’s temples is as phenomenal as their architectural merit. We’ve shortlisted our very favourite temples from across the archipelago.
The wildlife at home in Indonesia is as diverse as almost everything else in the archipelago. With such a range of remarkable ecosystems and habitats, it is almost no wonder that elephants, monkeys, tigers and orangutans live side by side there. Exotic and at times elusive, Indonesia’s wildlife is surely worth tracking down for an unforgettable encounter in Asia.
Whether it be lacing up your boots to reach the summit of a burbling volcano or taking a leisurely stroll through rolling rice terraces, Indonesia has got it all. Thanks to such a unique topography it is amongst Asia's top hiking destinations, offering a huge variety of vast and varied terrain, all just waiting to be discovered on foot. We've shortlisted a few of our favourite hikes, showcasing the very best of the trails and tracks across Indonesia.
With its lush jungles, soaring volcanoes, spiritual temples and tropical beaches, Indonesia is without a doubt one of Asia’s most romantic destinations. We’ve handpicked our top 5 hotels across the Indonesian archipelago - from elegant private pool villas to remote and rustic outposts - that we think are just perfect for a honeymoon or romantic escape.

When to go
Straddling the equator, the Indonesian Archipelago enjoys a warm tropical climate all year round, with a distinct wet and dry season. The wet season generally runs from October to April and the dry season tends to last from May to September, with days characterised by high temperatures and clear skies. Islands further east, such as Lombok, Flores and Komodo, experience more pronounced seasonal differences, with monsoon rains in the wet season and periods of drought in the dry season. The eastern islands of Java, Sumatra and Bali experience more intermittent rainfall in the wet season, when visitors can benefit from cooler temperatures and reduced crowds.
