July 2, 2013 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Need to escape the winter’s chill but don’t want to travel too far? Check out Abercrombie & Kent’s new escapes in Indonesia.  

Hideaway: Villa Voyage
This hidden gem is right on the beach at Sandy Bay in laid-back Nusa Lembongan, an island just 30 minutes by boat off the east coast of Bali.

Villa Voyage has five spectacular bedrooms and ‘luxe nomad’ décor with coconut-wood floors, bamboo, alang-alang roof, and designer flourishes including driftwood lamps and vintage steamer trunks. An exclusive experience for a group of friends or families, the villa is fully staffed including a manager, chef, housekeepers and gardeners. There’s a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by a deck and plenty to do on the island from snorkelling and diving to outrigger fishing boat trips, walks and surfing.

A&K’s 6-day ‘Hideaway: Villa Voyage’ is priced from US $5,050 (based on family of six in three bedrooms) including private transfers, all staff services and a jukung boat trip with picnic lunch.

Lombok Family Escape
Stuck for holiday ideas? Then consider this six-day getaway to Lombok. Easily accessed via short flight from Bali, Lombok boasts beautiful beaches, waterfalls and the looming volcano of Mount Rinjani.

The natural landscape and the traditional way of life here have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. This journey has activity aplenty to entertain the whole family – visits to a traditional Sasak village, walks through rice fields, cooking lessons, snorkelling, temple and plantation tours. Bed down in an elegant two-bedroom villa with private infinity pool at the modern boutique hotel Qunci Villas on Mangsit beach. Views over the lush gardens and across the blue waters of the Lombok Straits are sensational.

A&K’s 6-day ‘Lombok: A Family Escape’ is priced from US $1,375 per adult, US $250 per child (under 12 years). Price based on travelling party of 2 adults + 2 children under 12. Includes a private Indonesian dinner in your villa.

Cultural Indonesia
Escape the madding crowd and head for the imposing mountains and volcanoes of Central Java’s rural heartland. This is home to Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist sanctuary.

Those willing to leave the luxurious splendour of the Amanjiwo Resort can explore the local village by bicycle and see the famous pottery craftsmen at work. The more adventurous can travel west to the volcanic Dieng Plateau, the “home of the gods” at an altitude of 2000m, tour an organic tea plantation and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed tea on the terrace before lunch and explore the ancient Hindu temples at Prambanan, built in the 9th century and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A&K’s 5-day ‘Cultured Treasures & Temples’ itinerary from US $2,135 per person.

Laid back Bali
Explore West Bali National Park, in the undiscovered northwestern reaches of Bali, well away from the hustle and bustle. This is where some of the best diving and snorkelling on the island can be found and A&K serves it up at The Menjangan, a peaceful retreat where beachfront villas just steps from the water are your home away from home.

Villas are designed in the traditional Joglo Javanese architectural style with modern, minimalist interiors and large picture windows offering stunning views of the surroundings. Relax in a beanbag on your deck or a sun lounge on your private stretch of beach while contemplating what to do next. In addition to world class diving and snorkelling, there are boat trips, bird watching, horse riding, spa treatments and visits to the central highlights with treks through rainforest and coffee and spice plantations.

A&K’s 6-day ‘Hideaway: The Menjangan’ from US $1,320 per person including an exclusive private three course dinner on the beach.

Hideaway: Amanwana
Accessed by float-plane, Amanwana is located in a nature and marine reserve on Moyo Island east of Bali. This delightfully remote wilderness hideaway is set on a beach in a secluded cove overlooking the Flores Sea with accommodation in luxury tents.

The protected marine park offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Indonesia, with pristine reefs boasting a rich array of sea life. The experience here is all about nature alongside luxury. The airy tents are set under a tropical forest canopy, with Indonesian island artwork, hard wood floors and picture windows. Each day brings choices – a visit to Labuan Aji and its waterfalls, a short jungle trek, a beach dive on a reef wall or kayaking in search of hawksbill and green turtles plus spa treatments.

A&K’s 6-day ‘Hideaway: Amanwana’ from US $4,380 per person includes all meals; return floatplane transfers from Bali, laundry, and a sunset cruise.
