Where to stay in Indonesia

THE BASICS 

temple-indonesiaIndonesia is a wonderful blend of culture, mystical eastern lands and intriguing historical relics. An Asian hub with lots of sea, sand and sunshine, it is a prime location for those who wish to see their money go a long way.

The best time to visit and explore Indonesia is between June and September when temperatures average around 87 ºF (31 ºC). Depending on what you are looking for, you can spend a week relaxing in one of Bali’s tropical beach resorts with the kids, or spend two weeks island hoping and seeking adventure in Indonesia’s captivating islands.

Bali is an exotic holiday destination for couples, families with children as well as lone travellers.  It is considered an ideal place for beaches, historic temples, delightful forests and charming aromatic villages.

If untouched beaches is what you are looking for then hit Ubud, the southern region of Bali, which have them close-by and are best kept such as Jimbaran, Kuta and Sanur.

For city life and a mix of natural scenery, there is Java – the island of megacities, which is fast paced, intricately complex and culturally compelling. It is also known as the volcanic island with savannahs, iridescent rice paddies and tropical mangrove rainforest that grow on the north coast.

If you enjoy trekking and hiking then go to Mount Bromo – one of the islands’ most natural wonders. It is found in the Semeru National Park, which is nestled next to the active volcano Mount Semeru.

If you want to see animal life then visit Komodo which is home to the world’s largest lizard: the incredible Komodo dragon. There are a variety of treks available to track down fierce creatures, local bird life and flora.

Across from Bali is the unspoilt lands of Lombok. It is less developed than Java and Bali but entices those who seek solace through untouched ruins and exquisite hiking trails. Lombok Strait has its own alluring coastline and beaches and should be in your must-visit list if you are looking for something different.

The Gili Islands is one of the most laidback and relaxing regions of Indonesia, North West coast of Lombok. Three islands make up the fabled ‘Gilis’, which is treasure trove for backpackers given its rustic and bohemian feel. It lies offshore from the main island of Lombok. These islands are largely undeveloped and there is hardly any presence of motorised vehicles, only horses, carts and bicycles. Gili Trawangan is a bit busier, livelier and popular with its varied accommodation and dining specialities from freshly grilled seafood, market stalls and diving schools. Gili Meno, however, is considered the prettiest and most suitable for spending a day like a castaway on a coral white beach and viewing hawkbill and green sea turtles.
