Why Bali & Indonesia?
With perfect weather all year round, there’s never a bad time for a honeymoon in Bali and/or Indonesia. Indonesia comprises an incredible 17,000 islands, 8,000 of which are inhabited, and over 300 different languages – so the diversity is simply astonishing. Whether you’re desperate to explore the underwater world with a diving course on Flores, or soak up some culture in Bali, Indonesia be the honeymoon destination for you! It’s not hard to see why this is such a popular honeymoon destination, boasting peak temperatures of 33 degrees.
Indonesia is a vast swathe of stunning islands – with something for everyone whether that be surfing, diving, partying, cultural visits or just reclining in stunning beach surroundings.
About the beaches:
Indonesia’s beaches are as diverse and beautiful as the people that inhabit them, and you can be sure to be spellbound by the stunning beaches of Sumbawa and Lombok. Sulawesi offers outstanding diving opportunities, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (our secret). All of these places are off the well-trodden tourist trail, so you can relax knowing you are gaining a true, authentic Indonesian experience.
Bali has some truly jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches at its disposal, creating an idyllic and romantic honeymoon setting. There are the sleepy, white sand beaches on the island’s south such as Nusa Dua, Sanur and Kuta, whilst the intriguing and beguiling coasts of Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Bigin and Dreamland will take your breath away. Thankfully, Bali has managed to retain its local charm despite an increase in tourism over the last decade – and we love it for this reason.
About the culture:
As Indonesia comprises 17,000 islands, naturally the cultural variety is enormous. Each habited island has its own distinctive cultural feel to it, and this adds to the general allure of this intoxicating country.
Within Indonesia, Bali is an incredibly diverse place with a vibrant arts and culture scene that is driven via the predominantly Hindu population. The temple festivities are the stuff of legend and a sense of spirituality permeates all of the monuments, temples and volcanoes around the island. Furthermore, the people are some of the warmest and friendliest you will come across anywhere.
What we love:
The ebullient happiness of the people here, combined with world class beaches and a colourful culture, mean Indonesia is just such an electric choice for your honeymoon.
