Indonesia Honeymoons

Narrowing down your perfect honeymoon isn’t easy - there are so many ideas to weigh up, even if you’re only looking at South-East Asia. Which makes Indonesia’s fantastic diversity nothing short of a dream come true - an archipelago of exotic islands, sweeping across biodiverse tropical seas and running the gamut from carefree beach paradise to steamy rainforest, home to some of Asia’s most famous wildlife.

On Java, witness some of South-East Asia’s most astonishing human creations, from Jakarta - Indonesia’s mind-boggling capital - to impressive ancient temples like Buddhist Borobudur and Hindu Prambanan. Java also offers majesty of a more primordial nature, in the active (and truly awe-inspiring) volcanic landscape of Bromo-Tengger National Park.

Wildlife lovers can visit Sumatra and Kalimantan to observe orang-utan in their natural habitat, and cruise to Komodo and Flores to encounter the considerably less charming Komodo Dragons, with excellent diving just offshore.

Bali, Lombok and the Gilis are perhaps the most classic honeymoon islands in Indonesia; Bali’s reputation for upbeat beach scene is justified, but the island offers much more, with quietly pristine coasts, gorgeous landscapes, a superb spa culture, and centuries-old cultural heritage waiting to be rediscovered. Lombok and the Gilis are all about understated idyll and laid-back play, with just enough luxury accommodation to keep honeymooners comfortable without being conspicuous.

Add the intriguing tribal cultures and colourful biodiversity of Papua and Sulawesi, superb diving out amongst the Maluku Islands, a balmy tropical climate, and fantastic cuisine throughout the region - and Indonesia looks hard to beat for its feast of once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon moments.

Where to start:

You may want to sample all the region’s charms or emphasise a particular style of honeymoon with just a taste of the rest, so sit down and talk about your ideal honeymoon in Indonesia to get a feel for how much time you’d like to spend kicking back on a sandy shore versus dawn hikes up volcanic peaks, or indulging in luxurious spa pampering. If you plan to make your way along the archipelago, transfers will be a combination of boat trips and short flights - your honeymoon planner can advise on the best route. Indonesia has two seasons, wet and dry - find more details here.

Ultimate Indonesia Hotels

Tugu Hotel Lombok

Tugu Hotel, Lombok

Set in a pristine sandy cove on Lombok’s north-west tip, Tugu’s quirky villas are exquisitely decorated with antique furniture and unique Lombok art . It’s easy to play at tropical royalty when lounging on an ornately carved four-poster beneath a silk-draped ceiling - even more so in Tugu’s outdoor temple spa, which boasts a special long bed for head-to-head couples’ massage. 

Kura Kura Resort

Kura Kura Resort, Karimunjawa Islands

A jawdropping resort on its very own island just off Java, gorgeous Kura Kura can make that romantic desert island dream thrillingly real, with a night spent in intimate seclusion on a tiny islet, 30 minutes by boat from the main resort. You won’t be abandoned Crusoe style: a log cabin awaits, with a beautifully prepared picnic hamper, lamps & candles provided for a memorable overnight experience.

Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa

Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa, Borobudur

Beautiful private pool villas set on the hillside with views down onto the iconic temple of Borobudur. Designed in a traditional Javan style, the villas are finished to a very high standard, with contemporary comforts and many authentic features. The resort’s gorgeous spa offers Indonesia’s famously sumptuous Lular ritual, and the hilltop restaurant serves an excellent fine dining menu with views to match.

Spa Village Resort Tembok

Spa Village Resort Tembok, North Coast Bali

Spa Village Resort Tembok is arguably the perfect honeymoon resort: an adult only, secluded sanctuary tucked away on Bali’s north east coast, with an informal vibe. Following the intensity of a wedding, this is the ideal calming environment in which to unwind, and the daily complimentary massage is a welcome added bonus!

Sanak Retreat

Sanak Retreat, Munduk - Central Bali

With its deceptively simple wooden bungalows and wonderful traditional rural setting, Sanak Retreat represents Bali at its absolute best. After a day exploring your picturesque surroundings by foot or bike, indulge in a spa treatment, freshen up with a dip in the freshwater pool or simply relax and gaze out at the endless paddy field views from your bungalow terrace.


Nihiwatu, Sumba

This remote retreat is arguably the most stylish and luxurious surf resort in Asia! But it’s not solely for surfers! Anyone can appreciate the incredible private pool villas, the kick-back chilled vibe and the spectacular location on the west coast of Sumba overloooking a pristine 2.5 kilometre stretch of beach.
