Make a holiday rental home villa in Indonesia your home away from home

Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelagic state, consisting of over 17,000 islands in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is Asia’s hotbed of culture, with wonderful colours, smells and views greeting your every move. There are simply so many different islands, provinces and cultures that anything short of a full Indonesia travel guide book can only be considered to be an extremely rough guide to Indonesia. However, wherever you decide to holiday in Indonesia, you will almost certainly become totally transfixed, taken in by the wonderful culture, breath taking scenery and endless adventures. Indonesia is a very popular destination for travellers from Australia and New Zealand.

Things to do on holiday in Indonesia

Indonesia has the second largest coastline of any nation, and when that coastline is lined with exceptional white sand tropical beaches, sun worshipers have found their perfect holiday destination! There are a huge number of Indonesian beach resorts and hotels, which take advantage of the stunning scenery and warm seas. Scuba diving holidays to Indonesia thrive as the warm waters of the equator region are home to thousands of species of marine life. With over 17,000 islands there are ample opportunities to go diving in Indonesia, and with 3,500 species from shark to turtles, octopus to dolphins, there is nowhere better to take a diving holiday than Indonesia.

There is also a huge range of surfing beaches in Indonesia. Surfing holidays in Indonesia also thrive, and many of the best surfing beaches, especially in Java, Sumatra and Bali, are the most popular beaches as they offer a huge number of activities and entertainment in Indonesia’s largest resorts.

Inland, there are many things to do in Indonesia too. There is an unsurpassed amount of completely unspoilt countryside, as only 6,000 of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands are permanently inhabited. Exploring the rain forest in Sumatra and Java are hugely popular activities, and you get the chance to come across some truly amazing species.

With over 350 ethnic communities which make up Indonesia, there are an enormous number of cultural attractions to see, local dishes to try and styles of celebration to enjoy. From the Buddhist temples (the finest is the Borobudor in Java) to the province of Yogyakarta, Indonesian culture cannot fail to fascinate and endear visitors.

Places to visit on holiday in Indonesia

The beautiful island of Bali is simply breathtaking. The beaches are made of unbelievably soft sand and the native scenery is tropical and lush. Bali really is an island paradise, although the secret has not been particularly well kept, and there are some parts of the island which suffer with large tourist crowds. However, a private holiday rental takes you well clear of tourist hoards, allowing you to enjoy Bali at its incredible best.

Weather in Indonesia

Located around the equator, you can travel to Indonesia at any time of the year safe in the knowledge that the weather will be hot. Temperatures are uniformly around 31°C, although there is a defined wet season which affects holidays to Indonesia between October and April. May until September is the ‘summer’ in Indonesia.

Travel to Indonesia

Although there are many airports and sea ports throughout Indonesia, the vast majority of those who travel to Indonesia arrive by plane. Flights to Indonesia from Europe tend to arrive into the two main tourist centres, Bali (DPS) and Jakarta (CGK), Indonesia’s capital.

Absolutely woubderful stay! Kind caring staff, beautiful villa and peaceful garden!

5 of 5
Our stay at the villa for our honeymoon was perfect from the beginning to the end. The staff were so kind and friendly, there when you needed but so quiet that it felt like it was just the two of us! The food we had cooked in the morning and evening was incredible, we had traditional food and it was cooked to perfection and has changed our food pallets! The garden was beautiful, so peaceful and restful, the pool was lovely to cool off in and the veranda was comfortable to read books and be calm. The housekeepers and gardeners kept the villa and gardens clean and homely for us and offered advice and help when going out with taxis and exciting places to visit. The villa itself was also beautiful and we felt like we were in a little haven the whole time. Bali was also beautiful, such a different culture and it was a wonderful experience. We went to the temples, the monkey forest, the safari park rode elephants, gitgit waterfall, la lucchiola, had massages in the villa and went to echo beach ... but be careful to walk the right way to old man from echo beach! Our taxi drivers were so caring, offered friendly advice and knowledge and kept us safe. We would 1000% recommend this villa and all the wonderful staff who gave us knowledge about their home, looked after us and fed us wonderful food! Kiki was amazing and so friendly to work with helping us to organise the whole trip. Paul the owner also has been so easy to talk to and helped us with our booking and planning the honeymoon! Soooo brilliant! Dina the dog also was so sweet and protected the villa. Thank you so much for an unforgettable honeymoon!
