WHY VISIT BALI AND LOMBOK
Visit these two islands for the perfect blend of beach and culture. If you can bear to leave the beach, visit the spiritual side of Bali. If money is no object, then stay at one of the Aman properties – some of the best of these world renowned hotels can be found in Bali. For an extended holiday, combine a stay in Bali with the ultimate sea safari on board Tiger Blue, for a cruise around Indonesia's remote Eastern islands or Alexa for the ultimate in private luxury.
Bali can be as busy and frenetic or as peaceful as one wants to make it. Lombok is really a place for relaxing and enjoying the unspoilt beaches.
ABOUT BALI AND LOMBOK
Bali, where temples abound and there are lovely drives and hikes in the central volcanic mountain range, is worthwhile exploring. Ubud is Bali's cultural heart and is home to an artistic community and the surrounding hills and valleys contain a number of traditional villages as well as some of the most spectacular scenery on the island.
The largely Islamic island of Lombok is situated some 35 miles to the east of Bali, on a peninsula which stretches towards northern Australia. It offers a remote haven and is a perfect place to relax, unwind and take in the magnificent surroundings.
