Asia + The Middle East


    An intoxicating mix of volcanic islands, stunning beaches and adventure

    With more than 18,000 islands scattered across nearly eight million square kilometres of tropical ocean, Indonesia embodies an extraordinary variety of geography and hundreds of distinct island cultures. Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumba and Moyo to name but a few – all have individual characteristics and need to be approached in different ways, with specialist advice on each.

    As just one example, a road trip from Central Java to Bali is unforgettable: aptly nicknamed the ‘route of the volcanoes’, this intoxicating journey allows more adventurous travellers to experience unspoilt Indonesia, while still staying in extremely comfortable accommodation.
    On Bali, a night at a Balinese Princess’s palace under the shadow of Agung volcano; a day with a personal shopper discovering the island’s most stylish sources of jewellery, fabrics and accessories (or a week sourcing fabulous furniture); a Hindu festival in a hideaway village – this is a side of Bali that few visitors see. Having travelled to Bali extensively and discovered how easy and rewarding it is to get off the beaten track, we encourage our clients to do so too and experience the real Bali with one of our cultural guides.

    Made up of more than 1500 wild isles over an enormous 40,000sq-km area, Raja Ampat straddles the equator where the north-western tip of the Papua province meets the most easterly point of Indonesia. Antonia Black explores this glorious archipelago onboard the Prana by Atzaro.

    Written by Antonia Black, Destination Expert
    The Raja Ampat Islands are one of the most sought-after places to scuba-dive on the planet. Their diverse marine life, turquoise oceans and pristine corals are among some of the very best you will find. This is an underwater paradise – which Antonia Black was soon to discover.
    Bali has the fun, Lombok the beaches but if you’re looking for culture and history, Java has it in spades. We recount the experience of speeding along the roads and railways, through a lush, green landscape punctuated by colourful towns and the strains of the call to prayer issuing from minarets.
    Chartering a private yacht to explore stunning areas of the Far East can make for the most inspiring holiday. Below, we have highlighted just some of our favourite areas for chartering yachts in Asia.
