(13 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Bali, Moyo Island, Java
This luxury adventure tour visits three islands in Indonesia and features the most interesting cultural touring, scenic landscapes, and adventure activities in each destination. Accommodation is at luxury resorts known for their style, location and hospitality.
Begin in eastern Bali, one of the island’s most traditional provinces. Spend three nights at an exclusive resort perched on a cliff high above the ocean near Candidasa. During flexible private touring, trek through verdant rice paddies and forest and visit revered temples, royal palaces, Balinese villages and volcanoes. Enjoy free time to relax on the beach or by the resort's spectacular tiered infinity pool overlooking the ocean, and dine on superb Balinese cuisine.
Next, take the short flight to Moyo Island, a small nature and wildlife reserve east of Bali. Accommodation is at the island’s only resort, a 5-star luxurious tent-style retreat surrounded by lush forests and turquoise waters. Diving and snorkeling, nature walks, mountain bike trails and wildlife excursions are all within steps of your tent. One day, enjoy a spectacular snorkeling excursion to a nearby reef. Another day, take a boat, jeep and hike through jungle to swim in a refreshing waterfall. During leisure time, kayak, fish, try a night snorkeling or diving excursion, explore nearby coral coves and beaches, or relax and rejuvenate with wellness and spa treatments at the resort’s unique open air Jungle Cove Spa.
Return to Bali for a three-night stay in Ubud, the cultural heart of the island. With your private guide, tour the region according to your interests: visit local crafts villages, explore the Monkey Forest, or enjoy Ubud’s most interesting museums and art galleries. Take a guided bicycle tour through local villages set among lush rice fields, or visit Balinese water palaces and important temples. If desired, enjoy a whitewater rafting trip on the Ayung River. During free time, enjoy Ubud’s many cafes and boutiques. If desired, a private Balinese cooking lesson or seats at a traditional Balinese dance performance can be arranged.
Next, fly the short distance to Yogyakarta, a university town on the neighboring island of Java. Yogyakarta is renowned for its traditional arts, whitewashed villages, and proximity to Borobudur, the largest Buddhist monument in the world. Stay at the Amanjiwo, a favorite Aman resort, located in the lush hills overlooking Borobudur. With a private guide, visit Borobudur at dawn, the most magical time to visit. Another day, explore the fascinating Hindu temples of Prambanan, and visit the sultan’s palace in Yogyakarta. Other activities include hiking in the forested hills, biking to nearby villages, a horse-cart ride through local crafts villages, a lesson in Javanese meditation, or a visit to a private home for a traditional meal.
