Suggested Itinerary for Inspiration

This sample itinerary provides inspiration, yet your preferences design the real journey. Following our Tailor-made Guidelines to create a wonderful honeymoon in your own way.

Day1
Yogyakarta Arrival

Welcome to Yogyakarta!

At Yogyakarta International Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to your sweet hotel in Central Java's heartland in about 1½ hours.

Amanjiwo Hotel

Day2
Yogyakarta City Tour
breakfast and lunch

Start the day's program with a visit to the Sultan's Palace, also known as the Kraton, which is located in the center of the city and was founded in 1755.

Look out for the ornate reception halls as well as the large open-air pendopos (Indonesian pavilions), specifically built so that the Sultan could listen to gamelan (native orchestra) performances. There is also an air-conditioned room containing the desk at which the ninth sultan planned the overthrow of the Dutch. Something particularly curious, or just plain odd, is the painting of the eighth sultan on the day of his circumcision!

The next stop is Tamansari (also known as the Water Castle), situated just 250 meters from the Sultan's Palace. It was built in 1758 by the prince, with the sole purpose of being used as a 'place of pleasure' by the prince and his harem. The prince would sit in his tower, enjoying watching his harem frolic in the water, and send for any one of them whom he fancied at the time, who would enter the prince's quarters, where he would enjoy his princely ways with them.

Lunch will be served at a local restaurant before we return you to your resort.

Day3
Borobudur Sunrise & Candirejo Village
breakfast and lunch

A sunrise excursion to the 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple compound at Borobudur promises to be a tour highlight. It's the biggest Buddhist temple in the world!

A UNESCO site and one of the world's premier Buddhist places of worship, Borobudur's main temple aligns with Buddhist cosmology with its six square platforms topped by three circular platforms. Some 2,600 relief panels and 52 Buddha statues decorate the platforms; another 72 Buddha statues surround the temple's main dome. This massive edifice required more than 75 years to construct, and 60,000 cubic meters of stone.

The sunrise at Borobudur would be a highlight!

Abandoned in the early 10th century because of political upheaval, Borobudur lay neglected until its rediscovery by an Englishman in 1814. As we watch in silence as the sun rises over the temples, we contemplate the enterprise and devotion that created this awe-inspiring complex. A light breakfast is then provided at the Plataran Resort.

We continue to the village of Candirejo, where you can learn about local arts and crafts. Following your tour, we'll return to your hotel in Yogyakarta. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure.

Day4
Yogyakarta to Bali by Air
breakfast

Pack your bags and say goodbye to Yogyakarta for a moment. Upon landing at Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali and clearing arrival formalities, you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel in Ubud by private air-conditioned vehicle (the drive takes about 1½ hours).

Day5
The Balinese Art and Ubud Market
breakfast

Located in the foothills of Gianyar Regency and surrounded by ravines, dense forests, and picturesque paddy fields, Ubud is one of the most attractive towns in Bali and a must-see for anyone visiting the island.

Since the early 20th century, Ubud has been a muse for European artists, and today, you can delve into the studios and galleries of several influential pioneers. The Balinese painters' studios are equally captivating, showcasing a renaissance in Balinese art by blending traditional approaches with European techniques. The Museum of Modern Balinese Arts is a must-visit today.

Other trip highlights include Batubulan (meaning "stone moon"), Celuk, and Mas, where stone carvings and the intricate details of silverwork and woodcarvings will both surprise and astonish you.

Don't miss the lively Ubud market, a delightful way to spend time amidst batik fabrics, unique trinkets, souvenirs, and the enticing aromas of spices and fruits. Remember, haggling is the name of the game here—those seasoned market vendors can be quite formidable!

Day6
Visit Rural Village, Temples and the Palace
breakfast and lunch

Embark on an enriching journey today as you connect with the vibrant Balinese culture, immersing yourself in the daily lives of local families. Capture picturesque moments on your way to Subak Guliang, a charming traditional farming village at the heart of the island.

Venture further to the ancient Hindu Besakih temple, revered as the 'mother temple of Bali,' with a history spanning over 1,000 years. Nestled 1,000 meters high on the volcanic slopes of Mount Agung, Bali's majestic peak, witness pilgrims offering prayers, potentially in multitudes.

Conclude today's journey with a visit to Klungkung Palace, also known as Puri Agung Semarapura. Explore the well-preserved Kertagosa Pavilion, a remarkable showcase of traditional Balinese architecture. This pavilion, once a Hall of Justice, displays artifacts such as the Kamasan Paintings, narrating famous Hindu legends across the ages.

Day7
Adventurous ATV Ride
breakfast

Prepare for an adventurous journey through five distinct and authentic Balinese terrains, where dust and mud become your companions! Embark on a quad bike adventure traversing rice fields, plantations, jungle trails, mud tracks, and two traditional villages in Desa Kerta, Payangan. Our fleet boasts new, top-of-the-line quad bikes with significant engine capacity, 4x4 capability, full automation, and power steering for a seamless off-road experience. The independent rear suspension ensures a smooth ride on varied terrain.

Bali ATV ride

Operating these quad bikes is a breeze, but if you prefer, you can opt to ride as a passenger with a fellow group member or one of our experienced guides. Every tour is accompanied by skilled guides, and to enhance your experience, groups are divided based on driving skill, ensuring that each adventure is tailored to your preferences.

Day8
Ubud to Jimbaran Bay
breakfast

Today you would head to a Beach hotel at the Jimbaran Bay after a lovey and lazy morning in the hotel in Ubud.

Jimbaran Bay in Bali is a beautiful place known for its stunning beaches and seafood restaurants. The beach with its golden sand and calm waters makes it a great spot for swimming and relaxation. Having a seafood dinner with the sound of the waves in the background, or taking an evening stroll along the beach under the moonlight. You would create romantic and memorable moments with your sweetheart here.

Day9
Romantic Sunset over Uluwatu and Jimbaran Bay
breakfast

Relish a leisurely morning, you will start a two-hour private cruise adventure at the renowned Jimbaran Bay.

Following a safety briefing from your captain, embark on a serene journey along the tranquil waters. Approach the Uluwatu Temple perched high on the cliffs. Participate in a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony with your captain, placing a floating Canang Sari into the ocean.

Enjoy the beauty of the Indian Ocean as the sun sets over Jimbaran Bay. Pause at the peak of the sunset, taking in the color-changing sky and evening light

Day10
Catamaran Sailing to Nusa Lembongan
breakfast and lunch

Sail away from Bali to Nusa Lembongan Island on a catamaran. Aboard the catamaran, complimentary soft drinks and refreshments are served as you travel from mainland Bali to Nusa Lembongan.

Upon arrival at the Waka Beach Club in Lembongan, enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch, which includes salads, steaks, and fresh fish. After lunch, you could join an optional guided tour of this small unspoiled island, home to seaweed farmers.

The catamaran sailing cruise offers an array of water sports activities, including banana boat rides, pool volleyball, snorkeling, and semi-submersible coral viewing. Other water sports options include a parasailing adventure, which would take you high above the water for a bird's-eye view of the island, and scuba diving with the in-house dive team.

And when the day is done, the catamaran sails leisurely back to Benoa Harbor, arriving as the sun sets on another glorious day in Bali.
