Why wonderful Indonesia is the ultimate honeymoon destination... by Bawah Reserve, Indonesia

The honeymoon is indeed a special holiday when newlyweds can continue the celebration of their marriage and spend some memorably romantic time together before settling down into the ongoing adventure of married life. Honeymooners often choose destinations considered beautiful, exotic or romantic, with tropical islands naturally topping most people’s lists – and that’s what makes Indonesia the perfect honeymoon destination.


Drone Island 5

As the largest archipelago in the world, offering an incredible variety of stunning islands,
each with its own unique topography, culture, and cuisine, it’s not hard to see why Indonesia ticks
most honeymoon boxes. 

 

With its exotic beaches, a wealth of history, verdant terrain, and tropical rainforests, Indonesia
makes for a beautiful and laidback honeymoon destination. Laidback, however, does not equate
to boring. As the largest archipelagic country in the world, Indonesia is packed with exciting
activities!”  The Wedding Vow

Here are some more reasons to choose an Indonesian honeymoon.

 

Easy to get to:

With 29 international airports and extensive transport links, as well as close proximity to other
key Southeast Asian countries like Singapore and Malaysia, your trip will be easy and
convenient to plan. What’s more, some of the top resorts will be able to help you book your
transport. 

 

Luxury accommodation:

Bawah-reserve-1

Indonesia boasts a number of world-famous honeymoon resorts like Bawah Reserve, NIHI Sumba, several Aman properties, and a good selection of hotels in Bali.


Island-hopping options:

Why not plan a multi-destination itinerary covering the north, south, east and west? You could
start with an immersion in the culture and history of Central Java, go on to do some spectacular
diving in Raja Ampat, and follow that up with a spot of surfing and temple-hopping in Bali, the island of the Gods. Other highlights include viewing unique wildlife in Sumatra and – most likely top of any honeymooning couple’s list – bliss out on the beautiful beaches of Bawah Reserve, a cluster of private islands in the Anambas.  

 

Feast of food:

Indonesia offers a fabulous variety of exotic food and flavour sensations, all based on locally grown fresh herbs, spices, and other wonderful ingredients – lemongrass, chillies, ginger, limes, candlenuts, and coconuts, to name just a few. Must-try dishes include nasi goreng (fried rice), satay, laksa, beef rendang, kalio curry, and more. In addition to sampling these delicious meals, consider joining a local cookery class and learning to make them yourself!


Culture:

Indonesian Dance 5

 

While Indonesia is one united country, it is also amazingly diverse. Language, religion and cultural practices vary significantly between the more than 6,000 inhabited islands, most of which rejoice in multi-ethnic communities. As you explore them one by one, enjoy the adventure of discovering and comparing their unique interpretations of art, music, dance, cuisine and spirituality. Learn more here.

People:

Indonesia is known for its warm hospitality and smiles. You will not get a more genuine
welcome elsewhere, and while Bahasa is the official language, English is widely spoken. 
Interestingly, these islands are home to well over 200 million people comprising more than 300
ethnic groups, together speaking more than 700 dialects.

Though it is famous for having the world’s largest Muslim population, it is, in fact, a secular country that recognises six official religions: Islam, Catholicism, Protestantism, Confucianism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.

 

Indonesia is just waiting to welcome you on your honeymoon.

Come and experience this wonderful country for yourselves!
