Product Photo Product Photo Product Photo Product Photo Product Photo

Dreaming of a tropical holiday?

This 11-day journey (limited to 8 guests) starts on the Indonesian Island of LOMBOK. Blessed with white sandy beaches, spectacular tropical reefs and marine life, vivid sunsets, and wonderful beach resorts . . . Lombok is the very definition of 'relaxation.'

After 5 days in Lombok, we'll fly you to the Island of FLORES, where IndoExcursions' large and luxurious phinisi ship - a magnificent traditional Indonesian sailing vessel with "mile-high" sails - will be waiting in a harbour, ready to set sail for the famed KOMODO ISLANDS.

You'll spend 4 glorious days sleeping in opulent quarters and eating meals prepared by a private chef, whilst snorkeling on pristine white beaches; exploring island coastlines in search of the famed Komodo Dragons; and gliding through crystal blue waters teeming with dolphins, green turtles, giant mantarays and more marine life than anywhere else on earth.

The ultimate tropical vacation!

  • Day1
    Selamat datang, welcome to the Island of LOMBOK, INDONESIA! On Day 1, you and your fellow travellers will arrive at the Lombok airport at various times throughout the day. Regardless of your arrival time, we will have an IndoExcursions driver greet you at the airport and deliver you to our luxurious resort on MANGSIT BEACH on the west coast of Lombok. At 4:30pm, we'll convene for an Orientation in the resort's beachfront restaurant, where you'll meet your Escort/Tour Leader and travel companions for the first time. Over dinner, the Tour Leader will give each traveller a detailed Trip Itinerary and a Mobile Telephone (so we can stay in touch throughout our journey). Following the Orientation, we'll head to a world-renown Mangsit spa (named by Conde Nast Johansen as 1 of the 10 best in the world) for a sumptuous 'rijsttafel dinner' - an honourary Indonesian meal consisting of many courses and served on very special occasions. After dinner, we'll return to our hotel for a good night's rest before setting off on our journey in the morning. IMPORTANT NOTES : * Each month, IndoExcursions conducts at 27-DAY JOURNEY ACROSS INDONESIA which includes the islands of Java, Sulawesi, Bali, Lombok and Flores. You'll be joining midway through the tour, so many of your travel companions will have already been travelling together prior to you meeting up with them in Lombok. * At no time will the total number of travellers ever exceed 8 persons.

  • Day2
    The first day in Lombok will be entirely yours; a "Free Day." From sun up until 6pm, you'll be on your own. If you'd like, you can return to the spa for a ritual treatment lasting anywhere from 1 hour to 1 day; or you can head to SENGGIGI (the main town on Lombok's west coast) to shop for antiques and local handicrafts; or you can stroll the endless west coast beaches in search of beach bars and cafes; or you can just relax poolside and do nothing at all. The choice is, ultimately, yours. We'll keep 1 tour guide on call for the day, in the event that you or any of your fellow-travellers require assistance with transport to your desired locations. At 6pm, all travellers will meet back at our beach resort, and we'll have a special evening planned, complete with dinner, music and dance.

  • Day3 - 5
    We have 3 full days devoted to an exploration of Lombok. Lombok is Bali's neighbour to the east, but, unlike it's superstar neighbour, Lombok is the island-of-choice for those seeking 'relaxation and serenity.' It's more than a place; it's a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind - a place to slow down, unwind, "chill out." When IndoExcursions Travellers arrive in Lombok after visiting Bali, we tell them, "Exhale and stretch out a little. You're in Lombok now." (For all its charms, Bali has an 'intensity' that simply doesn't exist on Lombok.) Over 3 days, our native Lombok tour guides will introduce you to an island which is blessed with white sandy beaches, spectacular tropical reefs, exquisite marine life, vivid sunsets, wonderful beach resorts . . . everything you dreamed of when you planned your tropical holiday! Our guides will also take you to the GILI ISLANDS (3 tiny islands off the Lombok coast) with the whitest sand imaginable and some of the best snorkeling in the world. In addition to its beach-fringed coast, Lombok's lush forested interior is home to Indonesia's second-highest volcano, Mount Rinjani, and, at the foothills of Rinjani are some of the most serene waterfalls in the archipelago. It's our habit to encourage IndoExcursions travellers to take a (moderate) hike to the base of Rinjani to catch a glimpse of at least one of these exquisite waterfalls . . . but, if you decide to stay behind and chill out at the beach, we'll understand. After all, you're in Lombok. At the end of each day, we'll withdraw to the Mangsit-Senggigi area, where we'll spend relaxing evenings dining at marvelous restaurants and, on some nights, taking in a performance. Our favourite restaurants include a restaurant on the beach, where we can enjoy barbequed fish on the sand as the sun sets over the water; a restaurant high on a cliff, with food and a view to die for; and a seaside restaurant in the heart of Senggigi which is popular with locals and visitors in the evening. On at least 2 evenings, our dinners will include music and traditional dance performances.

  • Day6 - 10
    After 5 days on Lombok, you should have restored balance to your mind, body and spirit . . . So, on Day 6, we'll move on to the climax of our journey: We'll take a short flight to the Island of FLORES and check into a beach resort in Labuan Bajo (the Island capital). There, we'll enjoy dinner at our resort as we watch the sun set over the world-renown KOMODO ISLANDS just west of Flores. Early on Day 7, we'll make our way to the Labuan Bajo port and board IndoExcursions' large and luxurious phinisi ship - a magnificent traditional Indonesian sailing vessel with "mile-high" sails. With 8 IndoExcursions travellers onboard, a private chef and a full staff, we'll set sail for the Komodo Islands - a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site and home to the famed Komodo Dragon, the world's largest monitor lizard. For 4 glorious days, we'll glide through the crystal blue waters of the Komodo Islands - an area boasting the greatest marine biodiversity on earth, and teeming with dolphins, green turtles and giant mantarays. During our voyage, you may snorkel on pristine sandy white beaches; or explore the island coasts in search of Komodo Dragons; or, if you prefer, you may spend the entire 4 days relaxing on deck with a margarita in hand. All this, whilst enjoying world-class meals and accommodations on a luxurious sailing vessel. What's not to love? The Komodo Islands will provide the perfect ending for our Indonesia Tour. On Day 10, upon returning from our 4-day cruise, we'll spend one final evening in Labuan Bajo, where we'll enjoy a lavish farewell dinner together and check into our resort for another night.
    Aboard a luxury liveaboard sailing vessel | Breakfast Included
  • Day11
    Having spent 10 sun-filled days traversing Lombok, the Gili Islands and the Komodo Islands, you should be well-tanned, have heaps of photos, and lots of stories to tell when you get back home. But, more importantly, we hope you'll have many fond memories of experiences shared with new friends. On Day 11, we'll make our way to the Flores airport in Labuan Bajo and say our goodbyes. Then, you'll fly back to your original entry point in Indonesia, where IndoExcursions will have arranged a final night's accommodation for you before you head back to your home country . . . Unless, of course, you live in Indonesia, or choose to remain in Indonesia for some independent travel! ____________________________________________ WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US FOR 11 DAYS OF FRIENDSHIP AND CONVERSATION . . . AND THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME! WE LOOK FORWARD TO TRAVELLING WITH YOU IN THE WEEKS OR MONTHS AHEAD.
