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.

Set on a precipice 100 feet above the Indian Ocean, this unique Indonesian island retreat quite literally rises above other Jimbaran Bay resorts.

A local couple runs the humble Rumah Roda Homestay where you feel completely dropped into nature. That includes organic vegetables from the garden used in traditional Balinese cooking.

Privacy and tranquillity prevail at Sentosa, an enclave of 38 villas with indoor-outdoor baths, individual pools and gardens, and fully stocked kitchen pavilions. The gym is a paean to wellness, offering nutritional advice as well as yoga and Pilates.

Half the fun of staying at this tiny retreat, set in the quiet fishing village of Pemuteran on Bali’s northwest coast, is getting there.

If it weren’t for the surrounding rice paddies of Kerobokan, you could be forgiven for mistaking Kafe Warisan for a Parisian bistro.

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.

381 Balinese-wood rooms on 23 beachfront acres dotted with sculpted gardens in an exclusive enclave of Bali. 

The hotel's name means "beautiful bamboo" in Balinese. John Hardy transplanted four 150-year-old teak houses to the site, ensuring rain-forest trees were left intact, and decorated them using Indonesian antiques.

Situated near the small village of Bebengan, the Sukhavati Estate is a six-bedroom villa surrounded by the Penet River and dense jungle. The setting creates a sense of remoteness, although the estate is just a 15-minute drive from major tourist destinations such as Kuta and Ubud.

Set in Bali’s dazzling green central highlands among 18 acres of gardens, this property’s Star Wars-esque architecture seems—well, rather alien at first. Once the shock of the incongruously mod elliptical white lobby building wears off, though, all is forgiven.
