Hotels in Indonesia

There are many five-star luxury hotels in Indonesia, situated in some of the most beautiful tropical locations in the world. Bali is studded with Indonesia hotels that are each as lavish and heavenly as the next—like the Amandari Resort, the Alila Villas, and the Four Seasons. But don’t think that Bali has the monopoly on luxury--Jeeva Klui and Puri Mas on Lombok are breathtakingly beautiful with infinity pools, open-air palapas, and relaxing spas. Scuba divers may want to stop at the Misool Eco Resort on West Papua, where you are sitting on top of a two million acre marine reserve. There are many hotels in Indonesia for eco-tourists. Try the Samboja Lodge in the orangutan sanctuary on Borneo and wake up to orangutans chattering in the morning and the gentle lull of tree frogs murmuring in the night. Check out the list below for the best hotels in Indonesia.

Resembling a stylized Balinese village, this luxury resort in Nusa Dua features tropical gardens, a white sand beach lined with daybeds, and a vast network of lagoon pools connecting seven regular pools and manmade waterfalls.

Set right on the grounds of an elephant sanctuary 30 minutes north of Ubud, the Elephant Safari Park Lodge—opened in March 2008—allows guests to get up close and personal with the park's 27 resident Sumatran pachyderms.

In true Aman form, this luxurious hideaway displays an unwavering commitment to seclusion and romance from its perch high above the Ayung River gorge on the outskirts of Ubud. The resort is a re-imagined Balinese village, where pebbled walkways meander along 30 freestanding suites.

Once the vacation home of renowned Indonesian architect and art collector Hendra Hadiprana, this 20-villa property combines the Hadiprana family’s personal art and antique collection with a very English feel.
