Teetering on a clifftop 150m above the Indian Ocean, The Bulgari Resort boasts one of Bali’s finest views. Fashioned by Italian architects, this is chic Milan meets Balinese jungle, with tropical woods and hand-hewn volcanic stone used to create its glamorous interiors and Balinese antiques and handicrafts ensuring an ever-present sense of place. Frangipani-scented pathways lead you to your thatched villa but that view is best appreciated from the dazzling infinity pool or the resort’s private beach, accessed via a sleek inclinator.
Paying a glorious tribute to nineteenth-century European spice traders, hotel design guru Bill Bensley has turned the jungle camp experience on its head with Capella Ubud. Discreetly tucked within the lush greenery of Keliki Valley, each of the luxury tented retreats are named adventurous vocations (cartographer, carpenter and so on) and are suitably filled with vintage curios to match. From the moment you stumble upon Capella Ubud you feel you’re on your own expedition – the excitement only builds from there.
With a name like the Hanging Gardens of Bali, you’re probably already conjuring thoughts of a lush oasis. The truth exceeds even your wildest imagination, with the Hanging Gardens of Bali defying gravity on an emerald hillside and enveloped by bamboo, orchids and coffee trees. Each one of the alang alang-thatched Balinese villas comes complete with outdoor showers and heated plunge pools, while the inventine design of the infinity pool mirrors nearby rice terraces. This is your very own Indonesian Eden.
Paying homage to the magnificent Borobudur with its staggered storeys, the Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta peeks above twenty two hectares of manicured tropical gardens like an elegant white goddess. Resting on the outskirts of Yogyokarta, the sweet scents of lemongrass and cinnamon will waft through your nostrils from the moment you step into the marble lobby, while your balcony serves up splendid views of the gardens unfolding towards the misty Mount Merapi in the distance – Java’s most sacred volcano.
If location was the luxury, then the Jiwa Jawa Resort would be drenched in opulence. A mountain lodge sitting pretty two thousand metres above sea level, it’s pitched amid a panoramic tapestry of rolling hills, green forests and spluttering volcanoes. The farm-to-table Indonesian cuisine is not only plucked straight from the scenic landscape surrounding you, it’s tasty fuel for a sunrise visit to Mount Bromo – just fifteen minutes away in a Jeep.
A cruise is a fine way to see several of Indonesia’s island gems in one hit and Aqua Blu is the most luxurious way to do it. You’re tracing the wake of legends, with Aqua Blu’s CV revealing a past life as a British naval explorer HMS Beagle and yacht for a European aristocratic family. Onboard, the stylish brass-and-ivory interior exudes comfort, while the twenty-five-strong crew includes guides and a diving instructor, making for ultimate flexibility when discovering Indonesia’s wonders on land and at sea.
If you’re looking for Bali’s best view, we’ll make it easy for you – Munduk Moding Plantation already has it nailed. Perched on northern Bali’s temperate hills, the resort looks out over stupendous vistas of hillsides wrapped in coffee plantations, virgin rainforest and rice terraces. The sunsets are even better. The unmistakable Balinese villas are enveloped by the jungle and while a roster of activities get you out and about in this untouched environment, we really wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t move a single inch from your vantage point.
If you were to look up the word 'samaya' in a Sanskrit dictionary, it would refer to an inner sanctum of wellbeing. It might as well be talking about The Samaya Seminyak, a resort that oozes Balinese opulence and tranquillity in equal measure. You'll feel your pulse slowing the moment you stroll through its perfectly manicured tropical gardens, while all of the contemporary chic villas come with private lap pools, perfect for watching the fiery sunsets play out each evening – they’re reputedly the best in Bali.
Kicking back on Lombok’s sleepy north-western coast, The Oberoi Lombok feels more like a private island retreat given the seclusion it exudes. This is island tropicana at its zenith: Balinese thatched villas jockey for space with palm trees whose perfect reflections shimmer in the resort’s three pools. But it’s the vanilla-tinged sands of Medana Bay that steal the show, a postcard-ready beach that is all yours to wallow in. This is where you can holiday like no-one’s watching – because there really isn’t.
Sitting high above the Petanu River Valley and encased within ten hectares of parakeet-green hillside gardens, Maya Ubud Resort & Spa has classic Bali written all over it. It presides over Peliatan’s sprawling rice paddies, lush jungle and the snaking Petanu River, an emerald oasis of tranquillity you can’t help but be swept up by. A stay here is a bath-like immersion into Balinese culture, with an eclectic display of Indonesian heritage antiques and thatched villas suitably minimalist so not to distract from the spellbinding view.

From the traditional joglo villas to the farm-to-fork cuisine and the tree planting programme, everything is geared towards leaving no footprint in this wild corner of Bali. And when you’re waking up to the chirps of endangered Bali starlings and watching deer trot past your dinner table, you’ll realise how special – and crucial – this place really is.
Snuggled among the thick rainforest of East Java and in the middle of nowhere, you will really feel like you’ve stumbled across the Jiwa Jawa Resort.

Edging above the jungle canopy, the luxury lodges feel more like treehouses and your balcony is a view over what’s in store for you, including hikes to Mount Ijen’s crater lake.
