Home to over seventeen thousand islands, Indonesia is bursting with a wealth of diverse experiences. We’ll take you to some of its most enigmatic, beginning in spiritual Bali and then cruising around the islands of Komodo National Park, unlocking its natural treasures along the way.

Start with a few days in Bali, an island that moves to its own transcendent rhythm. You’ll be based in its most mystical town, Ubud, where you’ll be spiritually seduced by its artsy culture and expertise in indigenous healing therapies. Meet mischievous long-tailed macaques and jungle-cloaked Hindu temples on an Ubud Monkey Forest tour as you wander along its vine-wrapped trails, before a guided hike through the rice paddies of Tegalalang. You’ll have another day to stroll Ubud’s prayer flag-lined and gamelan-soundtracked streets, before hopping on a flight to Komodo Island – the land of dragons.

Here, you’ll board your home for the next week, the luxury boat Aqua Blu. Its small size means it can reach many of Komodo National Park’s wonders that plenty of other cruise ships can’t, while still ensuring you island-hop in style. Your Komodo National Park tour will begin among the footprint-free sands of Gili Lawa Laut, where you can snorkel straight from the beach for encounters with sea turtles. Next, you’ll meet the archipelago’s namesake dragons among mangroves and savannah-coated hills on a Rinca Island tour; a meeting with these ancient creatures is one you won’t forget. The following day, you’ll search for sea eagles and more Komodo dragons aboard Aqua Blu’s skiffs in the volcanic caldera of Horseshoe Bay before reclining on the blancmange-tinged sands of Pink Beach.

Dragons may be the primeval drawcard but Komodo National Park’s diving hotspots are its trump card. You’ll discover this when you explore the depths of the Linta Strait, where you’ll glide alongside manta rays, trevallies and barracuda. After you’ve dried off, clamber up a peak on Padar Island for an epic view of its glittering bay and curving rugged coastline, before toasting to nature’s magic with a sundowner cocktail on the beach. You’ll uncover more idyllic beaches and rainforest hiking trails on Gili Banta, become reacquainted with Komodo dragons in the wild on West Komodo before waking up to inquisitive whale sharks in Saleh Bay.

Your last day in the Komodo archipelago will quite possibly be the wildest: tread the wild jungle paths of the remote Moyo Island to stumble upon secret waterfalls, off-the-map fishing communities and the kaleidoscopic Angel Reef. After all that adventure, you’ll spend a few decadent days winding down on Bali’s south-western shores at The Bvlgari Resort, twinning Italian elegance with tropical chic isolation.


Experience highlights

  • Go on a guided walk through Ubud Monkey Forest. It will feel like a lost world with its Hindu temples and mossy statues wrapped in vines, both alive with cheeky long-tailed macaques scampering around the jungle.
  • Stroll through the lime-green tiered rice terraces of Tegalalang with your private guide. You’ll spy farmers tending to their crops whatever time of year it is, whether it’s planting new seedlings or preparing for harvest season.
  • Snorkel alongside sea turtles gliding through pristine coral reefs in the gin-clear shallows off the buttery beaches of Gili Lawa Laut.
  • Get your first encounter with Komodo National Park’s most famous beast, the Komodo dragon, on a visit to Rinca island. You’ll also spot water buffalos, Java rusa and plenty of birdlife, including yellow-crested cockatoos, Wallace’s hanging parrots and red-tailed tropicbirds.
  • Stop at Pink Beach, Komodo Island’s photogenic swathe of sand. Here you can relax among its blush-tinged beauty or lace up to explore the nearby jungle in search of bats or remote rainforest villages.
  • Komodo National Park is often touted as one of the world’s premier diving spots and you’ll see what the fuss is about along the Linta Strait, swimming its depths to come across gardens of coral, trevallies, barracuda and manta rays.
  • Hike up the savannah of Padar Island for an iconic view of its rugged mountains, creamy curving beaches and shimmering waters. It’s well worth the walk.
  • Enjoy a morning snorkel with whale sharks in Saleh Bay, which can be found here year round. Conservation rangers will be on hand to tell you more about these beautiful beasts and explain how best to interact with them.
  • Visit Moyo Island, an isle most travellers don’t get to see. Known for its coastal fishing villages you’ll hike through pristine jungle to hidden cascades, while also snorkelling the pastel-shaded coral of Angel Reef.
