Trip highlights

  • Beaches, temples and rice terraces in Bali
  • Boutique hotels and unspoilt ways of life in Lombok
  • Rustic island charm in the Gili's
  • Amazing sunsets, snorkelling and diving

Your first stop on this suggested itinerary will be Bali, probably Indonesia's most famous island destination. We recommend spending at least 5 nights here to enjoy beach days, soak up the spirituality and culture of the local people and discover the art markets and rice terraces of Ubud.

From Bali you can either take a short flight (around 35 minutes) or a speedboat (around 2 hours) to Lombok. This sleepy island is the ultimate retreat for a bit of rest and relaxation, almost like taking a step back in time. Hotels on Lombok are generally boutique style, and perfect for couples seeking tranquility. Aside from the beaches, Lombok also has some amazing inland scenery and plenty of activities on offer including trekking Mount Rinjani National Park, spending the day exploring Sendang Gile Waterfalls or simply visiting one of the traditional Sasak villages which have remained unchanged for centuries.

After spending some days relaxing on Lombok, our final suggestion are the tiny, vehicle-free Gili Islands. Only 15 minutes away by speedboat these tiny islands with their rustic charm are perfect for days spent snorkelling or diving and evenings spent enjoying a local beer or two with your toes in the sand at one of the many beach bars. Spend up to 4 nights here before taking the speedboat back to Bali (around 2 hours) and your onwards flight.
