Sustainability in Indonesia

Properties and experiences throughout Indonesia have a varying approach to sustainability, however, with this itinerary we’ve shown how it can be done with style. Misool Foundations mission is to safeguard the most bio-diverse reefs via the empowerment of local communities while Capella’s focus is on slow travel and gentle impact. A stay at Nirjhara combines cutting edge design with sensitive materials and community engagement. All three properties complement each other, making for a holiday diverse in experience yet sharing a common theme to tread lightly and protect their fragile environments.

Clare was terrific! At the last minute, I did a complete change of my plans, and she was incredibly graceful and positive about changing everything. The livaboard she recommended was great. I thoroughly enjoyed--and appreciated--working with her.
