Let's Plan Your Luxury Tours of Bali & Indonesia

How do you envisage your tour of Bali & Indonesia? The island can be tackled in many different ways: an extended luxury beach stay on the south coast; the perfect two-centre family holiday or honeymoon combining the beach with spiritual and scenic Ubud; or multi-stop itineraries of up to 2 or 3 weeks travelling around the island, taking in volcanoes, national parks, coral reefs, mountain-top temples, cascading waterfalls, and idyllic rural villages.

The ‘Island of the Gods’ sits in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago, but is distinctly different from the rest of the country. As the only Hindu majority island in Indonesia, and with its own language, cuisine, and entirely unique culture, Bali stands apart and as is typically seen as a complete destination in itself. Whatever trip you plan, we guarantee that you’ll be amazed by the magical ‘Island of Gods’ and delighted by the warmth and humour of the Balinese people.

However, with Bali’s busy airport providing quick and convenient flight links all across the island group, it’s easy – and enthralling – to build combinations with the majestic volcanoes and temples of Java, the sultry jungles of Sumatra and Kalimantan, the astonishing underwater wonders of Sumba and Raja Ampat, or the fascinating culture of Sulawesi.

Below we have laid out tour ideas for both Bali as a standalone trip, and also as a base from which to discover the wider Indonesian archipelago. With so much on offer you may find yourself coming back year after year – we guarantee you’ll never run out of adventures in this part of the world!

Highlights of a Indonesia & Bali Luxury Trip

Bali is a majestic, mystical destination that has captivated intrepid travellers for centuries. The word ‘Bali’ has a cache in itself: evoking serenity, auspiciousness, and visions of tropical paradise. Now one of the world’s most famous tourism destinations, the island has lost absolutely none of its charm and remains a truly magical place to visit.

The ‘Island of the Gods’ is synonymous with spirituality, drawn from an ancient culture that is entirely unique to the island. Bali has stood apart from the surrounding Indonesian archipelago since ancient times, enjoying a distinct language and a religious backdrop which has evolved from Buddhism to Shavaism and – from 1st century AD onwards – its own unique brand of Balinese brand of Hinduism. This is evidenced today in an island-wide littering of staggering temples, often in spectacular (and highly photogenic) locations: mountain-tops, volcanic slopes, placid lakes, and dramatic cliff tops.

Inland Bali is an island of true adventure. Travelling across the island you’ll find an ever-changing landscape of fertile rice terraces, dense jungle, picturesque lakes, and soaring volcanoes. Adrenaline-fuelled activities are never far away, with opportunities for white-water rafting, high-intensity mountain biking or genteel cycling, and hikes of all lengths and difficulties.

Bali’s coastline is equally diverse. Serene white-sand beaches in the south, rocky and coral-rich off the east coast, and striking volcanic black sands along the west and north. There are beach resorts to cater for all tastes – some busy and bouncing; others isolated and tranquil – with immediate access to adventures both on and under the water. The eastern shores house the island’s best diving and snorkelling, while the west and south provide some of the world’s most famous surf destinations.

How long do I need for a tour of Indonesia?

A Bali-only trip could be as a little as 6-7 days; although compact this would be (just) enough time for a few nights around Ubud backed up with a beach break down on the south coast. A full round-island trip would require 10-12 days minimum. Pairing Bali with one or more of nearby Java, Lombok, or Flores would best be done in 13-14 days – or more…you really can’t ever stop exploring Indonesia, so the more time you have the better!

When is the best time to travel to Bali?

Located close to the equator Bali has a relatively settled – but tropical – climate year-round. Temperatures remain pleasantly hot and humidity mild, with rainfall at its lowest from March through to October. Although there is a slight uplift in the probability of rain from November through to February there is no monsoon as such, and this shouldn’t put anyone off planning an escape through the winter holidays.

How about wider Indonesia?

Those islands on a similar latitude to Bali typically follow a similar pattern: Java, Lombok, Flores, and Sumba. Sulawesi likewise, albeit with a mini monsoon in the hills of Tana Toraja around March and April. Regions of Indonesia that fall on the other side of the equator – chiefly the jungle and wildlife destinations of Kalimantan and north Sumatra are in the inverse, seeing their best weather from October through to March.

Is Bali a good destination for adventure travel?

100% yes. The centre of Bali holds rolling hills and mountains, and two majestic volcanic peaks in Mt Agung and Mt Batur. There are miles upon miles of slopes, dense forests, and secluded waterfalls to trek or mountain-bike to, while at lower elevations you’ll find a rich carpet of emerald rice fields for lighter hikes or cycling. Several fast-running rivers lead to rapids for kayaking or rafting. Off-shore you’ll find several patches of underwater wonderland – primarily around Menjangan, Amed, Candidasa, or Nusa Lembongan – for keen divers and snorkellers.

Is there any wildlife to see in Bali?

Bali is best thought of as a destination for culture, nature, relaxation, and adventure. Wildlife interaction is possible in Bali’s bird and reptile parks, and there are plenty of monkeys and other tropical critters around, but for big-hitting wildlife activities we suggest turning your attention to Sumatra or Kalimantan. Both house epic national parks, home to orang-utans, elephants, rhino, and – very elusively – tigers.

Are Bali and Indonesia safe to visit?

Indonesia is a settled democracy suffering little disruption from political action, strikes, or extreme activity. Its tourist centres – primarily Bali, but also Java, Flores, and Sulawesi – are well away from densely populated areas and you’ll find a general sense of calm and positivity through the country. As with most of Asia, petty crime is near unheard of and you’ll find locals on the whole warm and highly welcoming.

How do we get around Bali & Indonesia?

Tours of Bali are conducted 100% by road. No two parts of the island are more than 3-4 hours’ drive away, and the scenery is simply unforgettable, so these journeys are an absolute joy. Next-door Java is connected by a very short ferry transfer, so a full overland trip from Jakarta or Yogyakarta is enticingly possible. Otherwise, it’s short, comfortable, efficient domestic flights; Indonesia has half a dozen or more domestic airlines competing to keep fares cheap and service high: if you’re combining 2 or 3 islands you’ll probably become very familiar with them!
