7 recommended honeymoon hotels in Indonesia

7 recommended honeymoon hotels in Indonesia

I received three invitations for weddings held on Valentine's Day this year; it seems normal to see a spike in the number of couples tying the knot on the international day of love.

Although Valentine's Day has passed, with such an increase in wedding numbers, it only makes sense to consider the following weeks to be high season for honeymooners.

Speaking of honeymoons, people can give a lengthy description of what their ideal honeymoon should be. However, different people want different kinds of honeymoons; some might dream of a romantic trip to Paris, while others want to relax with their new partner on the beach in Hawaii.

Indonesia is rather fortunate; there is almost everything to suit different types of honeymoons - be it a trip to a secluded place, or a luxurious room in the heart of the city.

Komaneka, Ubud

Perfect for: A cultural honeymoon

Komaneka resorts would be perfect if you prefer to stroll along the serene streets of Ubud than walk through the more crowded Kuta.

Three of their establishments are located in the Monkey Forest area, which is walking distance to the main streets of the village.

Nihiwatu, Sumba

Perfect for: A beachside honeymoon

Indonesian law forbids commercial buildings being built a certain number of meters from the coastline - depending on the area - but that should not hinder you from having a front-row seat at marvelous beaches in Indonesia.

The Marangga villas of Nihiwatu in Sumba offer an unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean from the terrace of your room, complete with private pool and the privacy that honeymoon couples need.

The Suites, Hotel Mulia Senayan, Jakarta

Perfect for: A palatial honeymoon

If you would rather stay in the city, Hotel Mulia Senayan in Jakarta has just opened suite rooms that would be perfect for a honeymoon occasion.

Among the suites they are offering, the ultimate form of luxury can be found in The Duke Suite.

This room is full of superlative descriptions, including gold-polished furniture and an enormous bed - said to be able to accommodate up to six persons.

This 595-square-meter room is very exclusive; the hotel will need to check your background even if you have the funds to pay for its stellar price, which wowed us when we first heard it but unfortunately we cannot share it with you due to the room rate being off the record.

The Menjangan, Bali

Perfect for: An adventurous honeymoon

This resort is located inside the West Bali National Park where monkeys, deer and birds roam - a safe distance from your room of course.

The place is perfect if you are looking for adventurous activities during your honeymoon.

Hiking, safari trips and bird watching are some of the things that you can do in the area. Also, north of the park lies the island of Menjangan, famous for its underwater beauty; you can dive or go snorkeling there.

Jeeva Beloam, Lombok

Perfect for: A honeymoon retreat

Fancy a retreat to an isolated location? Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp in Lombok would be a great choice. Its camp-like accommodation is close to Temeak Bay, a world-class diving and surfing spot.

Due to the isolated location, you will be going on an all-inclusive trip where all of your basic needs like meals and beverages are already taken cared of - and they also have air conditioning.

Amanwana fleet

Perfect for: A honeymoon cruise

This property of Aman Resorts on Moyo Island, Sumbawa, offers a unique voyage if you want something other than a stationary room.

Amanwana owns a ship named Amanikan which serves excursions to Komodo Island and Raja Ampat that last as long as seven days on the sea.

Kura Kura Resort, Karimunjawa Islands

Perfect for: A honeymoon on a private island

We have covered your needs for beachside and isolated honeymoons; Kura Kura Resort combines both of those features.

Located on the island of Menyawakan in the Karimunjawa Islands, Kura Kura Resort is the sole occupant in the area.
