1st day:

Upon arrival at the airport in Yogyakarta you will be greeted in a personalised way and have the chance to get to know your english speaking guide. He will offer to take you, if you’d like, to a beauty salon to enjoy a traditional Javanese massage for one hour (included) that will dispel the fatigue of your journey and give you your first dose of the sweet life in Indonesia. Once you are good and relaxed, you’ll reach your first accommodation (hotel CM-01), located just south of the city, it invites you to sleep in authentic Javanese houses which were solidly built by villagers. In charming wooden finish, the six houses offer an excellent level of comfort all of which include air conditioning and fixtures that stay true to the traditional interior design. You can also cool off in a lovely pool and visit the huge collection of Javanese art in a small museum attached to the hotel, the artist is the hotel owner himself. This accommodation has the ambience of traditional Javanese style which the city often attempts to stifle. In the evening you will explore the royal city of Yogyakarta in a rickshaw (included) in order to soak up the special character of this city. We will also give you the opportunity to experience a phenomenon which is considered "supernatural" by the Javanese, and in any case is quite comical! (CM-01 hotel, Yogyakarta).

  • There is the possibility for an extra € 30 per night per room to stay at the hotel (reference CL-03) located just steps from the famous Jalan Malioboro, the main artery of the city. This large international brand has maintained calm and authenticity and has managed to retain a touch of colonial architecture; more like a dainty set of cloisters than a hotel, it truly is a haven in the heart of the city! It has clean comfortable rooms with a luxurious spa and pool on site.


2nd day:

After a gentle wake up you will start the day with a visit inside the Sultan's Palace, the gateway to the depths of the Javanese philosophy and beliefs of this very refined nation. The bird market is next on the agenda, a very picturesque place to be before having a stroll through the streets of Kraton to bathe in the old harem. There will be lunch at a traditional restaurant (you will taste the "nasi gudeg", a sweet and sour dish which is the specialty of Yogyakarta).

In the afternoon you will head up the slopes of Merapi volcano where you will visit a magnificent museum to soak up some historical art of past sultanates of Solo and Yogyakarta. You’ll then take the road to Borobudur, the largest Buddhist temple in the world. Perhaps this visit will mark the beginning of your spiritual quest to Nirvana? The monument itself has been built as a gigantic mandala which is a geometric design, originating from India which promotes healing and meditative practice.

In the evening we invite you to attend a performance of Wayang Kulit, the Javanese shadow play recounting the epics of the Ramayana (originating from India) before returning to your hotel. (CM-01 hotel, Yogyakarta). By visiting Borobudur you will be able to stop at the house of a maker of the famous kris – Indonesian daggers that have wavy blades like a snake that are believed to hold magical power.


3rd day:

Early in the morning you’ll head towards the breathtaking region of Gunung Kidul, the heart of Javanese mysticism (‘Kejawen’) which resembles in many respects to Hindu Balinese spirituality. This region, because of its limestone mountains, is full of caves that are perfect for meditation. For very many centuries it has attracted mystics and kings of Java that have come in search of wisdom and powers. We will help you experience the unique character of this coastal mountainous region by taking you to places completely magical and unknown to other tour operators. You will initially visit a cave that has been transformed into a Christian place of worship which is rather unusual, and is also occupied, especially at night, by Kejawen mystics. Then you’ll go to a small but striking white sand beach where you can swim before buying the fishermen’s catch of the day. These are then passed to the grill by a Javanese family who will welcome you with open arms in their small bamboo house that faces the ocean. Pak Imo, your host, is a master of meditation and practices shamanism to help those who want it.

You will have the opportunity to go down the cliff via a little staircase to one of the holiest places of Javanese mysticism and if the tide is suitable you will experience something quite unforgettable (we won’t spoil the surprise by telling you here!). By mid afternoon we suggest you take a nice hike for an hour from the house of Pak Imo towards a sacred cave where lies the grave of a Javanese prince who is ranked among the Gods. There’s no doubt that you will leave this “end of the world” place with a heavy heart. You will return to your lodgings around 6pm for a free evening (CM-01 hotel, Yogyakarta).

  • You have the opportunity to attend a ballet of Ramayana for an extra 15 euro per person.


4th day:

This day will be long and eventful so as early as possible, you’ll begin in the morning with a visit to the famous Hindu temple of Prambanan which is impressive in height considering it was built in the 8th century. It has wonderful frescoes depicting the epics of the Ramayana.  The city of Solo will be your next destination, passing around the north to reach the Lawu mountainside.

By midday, you will venture deep into mountain landscapes where there is a preserved Hindu temple which strangely resembles some of the ancient Mayan temples. The temple was built while the Islamisation of Java, from north to south, was already well advanced and it seems that the population of the region has "taken refuge" in the beliefs of pre-Hindu animist rituals. The temple itself is distinguished by very unusual statues and sculptures that are deliberately erotic or pornographic, attracting young Javanese couples. After this perhaps surprising display, you'll be taken up to where tea is grown; the panorama is impeccable. You can take a walk through the plantations which are very photogenic and be able to meet the warm locals. Then you will continue to gain altitude up to the Ceto temple, located north of a village whose residents continue to embrace the Hindu religion. This beautiful temple that has thirteen terraces is the only in Java that continues to be "alive" (here they hold ceremonies that are similar in Bali) and it is with great emotion that one leaves this "last Gallic village".

After walking to the market which is a scenic dream in a small mountain town (the choice of exotic fruit is exceptional at the lowest prices that we know of) you cross the neck of Lawu (you may be lucky enough to spot a leopard living in this uninhabited area, it happened to us during one of our expeditions). At 6pm you’ll reach your Dutch colonial-style accommodation that overlooks a small lake (reference CB-03) located on the eastern slopes of the volcano. Your room will be simple but very decent and comfortable (in colonial times it was decadent!) It has a bathroom equipped with hot water and a private lounge with a fireplace where your guide will prepare an unusual fire. It also has a large terrace overlooking the lake and the surrounding mountains. In the evening you can go for a promenade along the lake and mingle with the natives who have come to the area to escape the intense heat of the plains. The rest of your evening will be free (CB-03 hotel, Sarangan).


5th day:

Early morning you’ll be given the opportunity to hike for about two hours from the small lake to the waterfalls, the trail takes you through various plantations and yards before the prying eyes of black monkeys that hang from the trees. Then you’ll take the road to East Java, across regions far away from tourist routes; rural life and landscapes that are perfectly preserved unfold before you. In the late afternoon you’ll go to the temple Panataran (a wonderful site to visit) which is located in a typical Javanese village (a rather soft setting), before reaching the small town of Blitar, where there are many houses and buildings that date back to the colonial era; this is where you will spend the night. We have chosen a lodging which is quite outside the norm (reference CL-04).  It has an astounding collection of art and is our favourite in Java; this accommodation is in one of the luxurious suites. In the evening you will take a trishaw ride into town to soak up its vibrant nightlife, passing by small shops and vendors setting up shop along the sidewalks and around the Alun-Alun, the central square of the city (Hotel CL-04, Blitar, East Java).


6th day:

You will have an early morning departure towards the Bromo volcano. You will follow routes through the mountains to the impressive waterfalls that lead to Batu where you’ll find many Indonesian "tourists" (this is where families and young lovers come for some peace and privacy). After tasting the local specialties you will visit the Hindu temple of Sumberawan, where there will be an opportunity for a long stroll through the rice fields. In the late afternoon, you’ll reach the place where you’ll spend the night; it is a cosy and comfortable hotel, but it may be more apt to say that it has more of a resemblance to a mountain lodge with a quaint historical feel from its period detail and decor; the view of the volcano from here is priceless (reference CB-04). You may be surprised to feel the drop in temperature here so do bring a sweater and a raincoat. The rooms are a little dated but comfortable and have hot water which is particularly important in this location! Sleep deeply between heaven and earth in beautiful silence (and under large blankets!). (CB-04 hotel, Bromo).


7th day:

You will witness the sunrise from the summit of Mount Pananjakan (you will not be alone, but it's worth it) In a Jeep, view the magnificent landscape and the surreal lights between earth and sky as you descend into the caldera where you will begin your climb (very easy) to the small Bromo. Many Balinese people go across every year to gather at a temple in the middle of the ash lake that lines the caldera. The region itself is still populated by the last Java Hindus. You will have breakfast at the hotel and then you can rest a little before leaving at midday towards the south coast of Java where the land and the Indian Ocean meet. After stopping at a beautiful mountain lake where you can observe traditional aquaculture, you’ll end the afternoon in a very remote area where we have selected a small hotel (CB-02) located at the edge of a village where time seems to stand still in the era of the Majapahit Hindu empire. This accommodation is alluring and feels somewhat earthy with its volcanic stone bathrooms but also quite charming with the dainty teak furnishings and splashes of colour. Just a few kilometres away is of one of the most beautiful beaches of the Indonesian archipelago. By rickshaw you will go to a Joglo house, a traditional Javanese structure which consists of three carefully decorated rooms all equipped with traditional furniture, each are en-suite. There is also a very large terrace that overlooks a teak plantation and a vast expanse of rice fields, it draws you into contemplation. Having had time to walk to the picturesque village, Ibu Iin, the owner, will serve a festive Javanese dish, called "nasi Kuning", authenticity at its best (CB-02 hotel, Meru Betiri Region).

Further your experience in this remote yet vibrant setting by having your hosts organise a performance of "Kuda lumping", a Javanese traditional dance that showcases a ‘trance’ style performance. Roughly twenty musicians and dancers participate in this three hour long show. This is an extra 100 € added to your overall plan for the benefit of the company and the village. This company performs during village festivities and rarely for travellers but they provide the experience for Discover Bali Indonesia.

A double room equipped with an extra bed will be available to you.


8th day:

In the morning you’ll head off to a spectacular white sand beach surrounded by steep hills at Madurese where resplendent boats are anchored. You may come across colonies of monkeys that emerge from the jungle or you may even see their coastal cousins, the famous Komodo dragons (which are harmless). You can walk to the summit of a small hill where you will have a breathtaking panorama which is perfect for reflecting and gathering your thoughts in general tranquillity. After you've feasted on fish on the grill and have spent time sitting by the big blue, travel on to a wide river where you can leave the vehicle for a ride on a motorcycle taxi that will take you through the emerald waters via a makeshift bridge in the woods (but guaranteed safe!) that brings you to a region that is inhabited by dirt roads. You’ll visit one of our secret places from which you will undertake a one hour and a half round trip hike through the jungle. You’ll be rewarded with a large beach which is completely deserted and as untouched as it was at the dawn of the world ... a truly magical place. The waves of the Indian Ocean here are allayed by the depth of the bay and you can swim right in the middle of pure, pristine nature. At the very end of the afternoon you’ll return to your accommodation for a free evening where you can dine at the table of your host or at the night market in the neighbouring town (CB-02 hotel, Meru Betiri Region).


9th day:

In the morning you'll be able to have a little bike ride through the countryside and visit a blacksmith who makes knives and tools with an ancestral know-how. Then it's time to move on towards the east through the pass of a mountain that is often called "miracles" and reach the midday altitude at a village where you will have a two-hour ride in a traditional carriage to see the hamlets and the many coffee plantations in the region (it’s completely authentic and not touristic at all!). At 4pm you’ll continue on your way to the town of Banyuwangi. You will have time to stroll through the traditional market where you will attract a lot of surprised looks and smiles before settling at a boutique hotel (ref: CM-02), on the edge of town. The bungalows on this site are scattered in a vast coconut grove that has a large swimming pool where you can cool off at all hours of the day and night, top quality comfort and of course air conditioning is provided. If you wish, your guide can take you to dinner at a typical restaurant or at the night market, but you may as well take advantage of the fine dining restaurant of your hotel; the "lumpia" is a mouth-watering delicacy (CM-02 hotel, Banyuwangi).

  • There is the possibility of giving preference to stay in a magnificent luxury hotel (supplement of 70 € per person) which is surrounded by rice terraces (reference CS-01). It is a little gem of a place situated in these remote areas of Java, offering gourmet cuisine and fine service an, attractive royal-sized pool and extremely elegant rooms. Relax in these enchanting surroundings before hitting the Ijen volcano the next day.


10th day:

Ijen volcano will be first thing on the agenda for you, which you’ll make your way to by Jeep in order to make the ascent up over the sulphur. You will live an unforgettable experience in a setting that is both dream and hell and has been the subject of numerous documentaries (including those made by Nicolas Hulot). After two hours of walking, you'll be able to descend into the crater to the edge of the turquoise lake, if the fumes of sulphur are not too stuffy. Around midday, you’ll resume back on the road upon which you travelled from Bali to cross waters again by ferry.  You’ll head to your next lodging (reference CL-01) which is superbly situated in a bay surrounded by the mountains of the Natural Park of Bali. This hotel is exotic yet decadent, the large beds are adorned with white drapes and linen and the stone bathrooms are sensual, open sanctuaries and of course, all are equipped with air conditioning. The large aquamarine pool has an impeccable view of the sea and the restaurant specialises in Thai cuisine. Just a stone’s throw away is a very pleasant beach with calm waters which is ideal for snorkelling; the coral is just a few meters from shore. You’ll have the rest of your evening free (Hotel CL-01, northwest of Bali).


11th day:

Enjoy this day to discover the small island of Menjangan, this little pearl is just 5 miles away from the north-west coast of Bali and is in the centre of one of the largest marine reserves in Indonesia. You can go scuba diving (extra € 70 per person) or surface diving (included) to observe the coral reefs which are perfectly preserved, with myriads of fish displaying the most vivid colours; a magical underwater realm that must be seen. There will be lunch at a small restaurant along the beach. Early on in the afternoon you may visit the natural park trails which are authorised for vehicles (at very low speed!) to see deer, monkeys and birds in their natural habitat. You can then enjoy a drink in a panoramic wood restaurant which sits three stories above the forest, making it an excellent vantage point. When you return to the hotel a traditional massage will be offered at a luxury spa, a recreation of beauty that belonged to an ancient king of Java. You’ll have the rest of your evening free (Hotel CL-01, northwest of Bali).


12th day:

In the early morning you’ll head along the coast to the most famous hot springs on the island. You can relax in a natural and beautiful setting with the knowledge that there are great benefits from this source of water. The baths are also lavish, carefully sculpted basins. It will also be possible for you to explore a small Buddhist monastery built on a hillside and gain access to the areas that are dedicated to meditation practice. After lunch you will reach the picturesque mountain village of Munduk where you can start a one-hour walk in the jungle to the waterfalls, an opportunity to enjoy an idyllic scene, crossing clove and cocoa plantations along the way which are the main sources of income for the inhabitants of this remote region.  Then we'll take you to see a giant banyan tree which is native to India and has the reputation of being the icon of meditation. This particular banyan is the largest tree on the island; here is a great spot to unwind in for an hour with its remote and serene backdrop of beautiful rice fields.  At 6pm you’ll settle into a small boutique hotel (Reference CB-05). In very neat and comfortable conditions, dressed with beautiful teak furnishings, you’ll spend the night in this remote region. From your bedroom window you’ll have a phenomenal view of the mountains and forest. The rest of your evening will be free; you may like to take advantage of having a walk to the village, do take a sweater with you; you will appreciate the cosiness and warmth of your bed when you settle down for a peaceful nights’ sleep (CB-05 hotel, mountains of central Bali).

  • There’s the possibility to shorten the day's program to experience a late afternoon a Balinese cooking class in your hotel (you choose three recipes from the 8 suggested). You will test the fruits of your study (with Rabelaisian portions!) by having what you make for dinner (20 euro per person).


13th day:

In the morning you will take a breathtaking drive from the ridges to the banks of the most unspoilt mountain lakes of Bali which you cross by boat guided by a fisherman, before undertaking a one-hour hike in the rainforest. You then have lunch with beautiful scenery to admire at a small restaurant overlooking the lakes. In the afternoon you will go through an off-road track that weaves between the luscious beautiful rice fields in the region, you’ll come across one of our secret places, completely unknown to other travel operators. Access the most beautiful waterfalls of the island in a fifteen minute walk through what resembles the Amazon wilderness. You’ll then descend into the coastal plain of northern Bali to explore some of the famous temples in the region of Singaraja, which differ in their fine sculptures and their often erotic reliefs.

In the late afternoon you’ll arrive at your first accommodation, run by a Balinese family in Lovina it is small, pretty and has an undisturbed view of the ocean (Reference CB-01). The bungalows are comfortable with open (yet private) bathrooms that all vary in decoration but all have that artistic Balinese flare. After you’ve enjoyed the swimming pool, do take advantage of watching the sunset over the sea of Bali, it is the most tranquil way to end your first day (CB-01 hotel, Lovina).


14th day:

Your day will begin at dawn to board an outrigger canoe to experience an unusual sunrise with the possibility, if you wish, of seeing dolphins frolic about in the water. You will also have the opportunity to practice some snorkelling around the most beautiful reefs in this region.

At midday, after a rest back at your accommodation, you’ll move on to the shores of Lake Bratan, whose waters mingle with the clouds. You will have the opportunity to visit a temple and a beautiful and photogenic flower market. After lunch you will reach the region of Jatiluwih, small mountain village tucked away in a maze of terraced rice fields. For an hour or two, cross the paths of the rice field workers on a leisurely stroll. Take this opportunity to familiarise yourself with the ancestral culture of the cereal that nourishes this island and the complexity agricultural design.

Ubud is next on the agenda, the cultural and artistic capital of Bali where you’ll spend the night (Reference CB-06). This exotic setting in the centre of town is intimate and beautifully decorated with carved wooden doors, bamboo beds and warm tones. The rooms overlook the garden with a path that extends along a gorgeous pool and a forest that makes you forget that you’re only a five minute walk from the bustle of market. The service here is very cheerful and helpful. You’ll have your evening free; it may appeal to you to dine in the city centre which is full of excellent restaurants that offer all types of cuisine (CB-06 Hotel, Ubud).

  • If you prefer something a little smaller and unique, there’s the opportunity to stay in other accommodation in Ubud (hotel referenced CM-05); this location sits in the depths of ​​vast rice paddies, completely untouched by tourism. The six rooms, half wooden bungalows from Java (joglos), are tastefully arranged. The quaint and pretty restaurant offers dishes that are created with the use of local products; the pool is a lovely size; it is romantically authentic however the only disadvantage of this accommodation is that it is a 20 minute drive from the centre of Ubud. However it is still possible for you to dine in the town centre if you wish, at the reception desk, transport can be arranged upon request.
  • You may also opt for a highly luxurious hotel (reference CS-02) which is located close to the centre of Ubud and honours the artistic Balinese style of sculpture. This place overlooks a small valley with a glorious landscape. The pool is majestic and the spa is one of the most famous in Ubud. The rooms and villas are built and decorated with traditional materials; this is the spirit of Bali at its most decadent.


15th day:

Start your day with a visit to one or two art museums, one of which is dedicated to Antonio Blanco, the "Dali of Bali", an eccentric painter who specialises in erotic and tropical expressions. The Neka museum highlights the history of Balinese painting, from the historical and religious tradition right through to its contemporary expression. You can then explore a site that dates back to the Buddhist Indo eleventh century, where there will also be the opportunity of a one-hour hike in rice fields and along a river that is shaded by coconut palms.

In the afternoon you will go to Bangli, a town situated at the heights of Gianyar, to visit Pura Kehen, the private temple of the royal family of Bangli. This temple is a miniature replica of the famous temple of Besakih. You’ll also stop at a village that has preserved its traditional architecture (this is an opportunity to introduce you to "Balinese feng shui") and it continues to maintain ancestral customs, it turns its back on modernity. You can also enter the house of Pak Nangah Karsa, who is quite a colourful character! This renowned artist is a sculptor, dancer and musician. He manufactures and handles with great dexterity, puppets for shadow theatres, hiding behind the masks he has designed to perform a dance from the Ramayana and creates sound using the various gongs of the gamelan orchestra from his studio. He and his wife will welcome you for an hour or two for a session of exploring Balinese arts. In the early evening, you can enjoy an authentic Balinese night market in Gianyar (perhaps you'll be tempted by the suckling pig?) or you may spend the evening in a restaurant in Ubud. During this day, if you’d like we could have you participate in traditional festivities (a cremation, a temple anniversary, a wedding or a teeth filing event!) this may very well be the highlight of your stay! (CB-06 Hotel, Ubud).


16th day:

In the morning you’ll be off to the mountains in the north of the island. Your guide will initially lead you to the majestic mountain, Gunung Kawi, where you can see the huge rock-cut tombs and the sacred baths of Tampaksiring. Then you’ll step into a deep mountain forest before reaching the stunning caldera of the Batur volcano and the gigantic lake. After taking in this stunning view, you’ll explore the caldera itself (with the possibility to descend on foot, it has some steep passages but is still easy to attempt). The drive will take you through the lava flowing hills to a village of low stone houses that are quite reminiscent of Tibet. We will visit a small temple whose history is marked by the eruptions of the Batur which it miraculously survived.

In the late afternoon you will come to an area where people live as they did in the past, following the ceremonies and celebrations of the traditional Balinese calendar. On this plateau of rice fields and hills, a sacred river flows with transparent waters is a natural Jacuzzi. We have selected a fantastic place for you to stay here at the south of the Agung volcano (ref: CM-06). The six rooms in this accommodation are grand and luxurious by their size and tasteful furnishings. They are light and airy with great views of the volcano. The menu of the restaurant is extensive and the quality of service is exceptional in this very remote and hidden area. When you arrive you’ll have the opportunity to take a leisurely walk through the rice fields and swim in the river. The rest of your evening is free to relax (CM-06 hotel, mountains of central-east).

  • You can modify your program for this day to ascend the volcano Batur instead. The hike is neither very difficult nor very long (about an hour and a half to reach the summit). You will need to accept the fact that you will encounter mass tourism there and will have to pay extra for the presence of a local guide, which is absolutely mandatory! This will cost approximately 20 € per person.
  • Alternatively, you may replace the ascent of Batur with another hike. This 3 hour walk round trip will take you through the primary forest that sits halfway up from the summit of Gunung Abang (2152 metres). During the climb, you will discover some Hindu shrines hidden away in a nature preserve. You may also decide that you’d like to continue the ascent to the summit (2 hour walk).
  • You also have the ability to stay in an opulent boutique hotel (reference CL-06) with a surprising level of luxury for this type of remote area in the south of the island. The rooms are bright and beautiful, the Balinese dishes of the restaurant are authentic, the views are sensational and it is evident that careful thought and design has gone into this site to achieve ultimate satisfaction for its guests.


17th day:

Early in morning you’ll go for a hike for one to three hours, depending on your desired degree upon which you’ll cross tiny traditional villages tucked away deep in labyrinth of rice paddies. This trail will lead you down the mountain into the plain, where you can explore both beautiful rural landscapes and the daily life of a quiet village; this truly is a non-touristic trail. To conclude the tour, you’ll visit an aboriginal tribe (the original inhabitants of Bali, before the Javanisation) and have lunch at Padang Bay, with the opportunity to make it to a small white sand beach which is accessible only by foot. If the tide permits, you’ll have the chance to snorkel. A walk alongside the ocean will be next where you’ll head towards the east where you’ll pay a visit to a temple that faces the sea and has caves that are riddled with bats.

By late afternoon you’ll come to your next beautiful lodging which is wonderfully secluded in a cove in the far east of Bali (reference CL-07). You’ll feel like you’re in a Conrad novel in this fantastically refined site, the view from the outstretched wooden decking is just breathtaking. Sample some Balinese specialties at the family style restaurant and indulge in a traditional massage which is available to order here at this little ocean side gem (Hotel CL-07, deep in the far east of Bali).

  • You also have the option to choose a small yet wonderfully pretty hotel which is located in Candidasa (reference CL-12), which has eight elegant and comfort bungalows, all with partially open en-suite bathrooms. Each bungalow is separated from one another by dainty little fish ponds. The pool is a good size, and the restaurant offers a varied and delicate menu and overlooks the sea; it is magnificently to dine before this setting as the sun is going down.


18th day:

First thing on the agenda for this day is entrance into the Amlapura Royal Palace, which is still inhabited by a few aristocratic descendants; soak up the history that hangs in the atmosphere here. You’ll then be able to bathe in the private, fresh water baths of the ancient king of Karangasem (who had extremely expensive taste!). Once you’re nice and royally refreshed, you’ll be able to take a short hike in the beautiful rice fields in the region of Tirtagangga. In the afternoon you will head on up north to Tulamben to snorkel and the wreck of a ship from World War II and aquatic life.  After a stop in Amed to observe the prehistoric techniques of salt making, you will take one of the most scenic roads of the island along the coast, skirting the eastern Mount Seraya and weaving through remote villages, seeing some houses made of volcanic stone. You’ll be back to your accommodation for a free evening (Hotel CL-07, deep in the far east of Bali).


19th day:

Early this morning, you’ll board a fast boat to Gili (about a two journey). You’ll reach your accommodation in Gili Air by a traditional sleigh (ref: CM-08). Here the bungalows are of traditional architecture and are arranged within a pretty floral garden. Some of the bungalows come with a small roof terrace on which to relax and enjoy light breeze from the shore. It only takes a few minutes to cross the coconut grove that separates the hotel from the sea where you’ll have access to the best snorkelling on the Gilis (CM-08 hotel, Gili Air).

  • You have the option to choose a small luxury site for your accommodation instead on the island of Gili Meno (ref:CL-08) It consists of four uniquely designed small villas all sleek and light with great finishing touches, seating areas surrounded by windows, teak wood furnishings and air conditioning. The beach at the front of the site has powdery white sand and is by far the most beautiful of Gili with its crystalline waters and coral just few metres from shore.
  • The other alternative is to choose a luxury site with a resident ‘club’ which sits on the beach on Gili Trawangan (reference CL-09).


20th day:

This is a completely free day without a driver or a car in order for you to just enjoy this paradise. Massage, snorkelling, diving, or a fishing trip in a small boat is available to you (CM-08 hotel, Gili Air).


21st day:

First thing in the morning, you’ll board your hotel chartered ship at the small port Teluk Kodek where you will be greeted by your English speaking guide who specialises in the island of Lombok. You’ll journey along the northwest coast which is full of deserted, pristine white sand beaches where you can stop off before visiting a traditional village, this route is set apart from the tourist paths and you’ll also get the chance to enter an authentic Sasak house (Sasak is the ethnic majority of Lombok). Early in the afternoon, you’ll reach the foothills of the north of the island at volcano Rinjani, which dominates over 3000 metres of Lombok. This is where the Wektu Telu religion is still very much in existence; it is a mixture of Islam, Hinduism and animism. Having had time to visit the oldest mosque of the island we suggest you take a path through the nature reserve to the magnificent waterfalls (the walk is about an hour and a half).

Late in the afternoon, take the road through the mountains and tropical forests where the monkeys are still the masters of the domain. You’ll arrive at your accommodation in Senggigi (CM-09); this quiet and intimate place has a large garden which stretches out to the beach, a small bar-restaurant that serves fine cuisine and has excellent, personalised service. Swim in the brand new pool or in gentle waters of the sea out front. The rest of your evening is free. (CM-09 Hotel, Senggigi area).

  • Instead, you may opt for a luxury hotel on the seaside, located a few kilometres north of Sengiggi (reference CL-10). Modern, tasteful and refined, this accommodation has managed to remain in harmony with the natural surroundings. The pool, bar and restaurant overlook the sea and the air-conditioned rooms are spacious, light and airy and are decorated beautifully with teak wood furniture.


22nd day:

Early in the morning you’ll head to a pottery village to see the making of beautiful vases, trays and plates. Later you’ll stop by a village that specialises in the craft of weaving which requires ancestral knowledge but unfortunately has gotten a little lost through craftsman who fashion masks that are used in traditional Topeng. By midday you’ll reach the stunning and often deserted “postcard” white sand beaches in the Kuta area. You will also have the chance to relax on the paradise bay of Mawun. You'll still have time to visit a Sasak village which has preserved the original architecture of the houses in the south of the island before returning to Senggigi. The rest of your evening is free (CL-10 Hotel, Senggigi area).


23rd day:

Late in the morning you’ll be taken to the Mataram airport or to the accommodation you’ve chosen in Lombok to end your stay with Discover Bali Indonesia.


The benefits:

Your English speaking guide will be happy to advise you, but will also adapt to any time you wish. You have the ability to change your choice of activities. He may stop at any time and change course. Of course he will continuously strive to use the roads that give you a much more intimate connection with true Bali. If you come across a religious ceremony, you may well decide to get your vehicle to participate in the procession for a while; you are in charge.

The program of your stay is flexible; it will not hinder your freedom. You can change it on the spot even after acceptance of this estimate (excluding night stays).

We greet you at the airport, and we will be present on the island for the duration of your trip so you can intervene if necessary. We will answer your questions and also look forward to meeting you in the middle of your tour (if you let us of course!).

Everything is done for you to be immersed in the authenticity of Indonesia; it’s up to you to make the most of all it can bring, in respect of the inhabitants, and in relation to your specific needs.

Upon your request we can take you to a school and / or clinic campaign (the ability to distribute school supplies and medication). For ethical reasons we must know that these institutions are always different so as not to corrupt the spontaneous exchanges.
