Abercrombie & Kent is entering the Indonesia market for the first time with a new journey from Bali to the Komodo and Moyo Islands. The adventure takes travellers off the beaten track into Bali’s interior where tropical plantations, fast-flowing rivers, crater lakes, volcanoes and mystical temples dot the landscape. Hiking, cycling and canoeing excursions reveal the Bali of old with accommodation in glorious plantation villas.
Venturing east, the journey continues with an extraordinary seven-night voyage aboard the reimagined Aqua Blu, a long-range yacht launching November 2019. The voyage takes in the wild and stunning landscapes of Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to the prehistoric Komodo dragon, the largest lizard species to walk the Earth. There are stunning marine discoveries in store at some of the best diving and snorkelling sites in the world and the coastal terrain is sprinkled with picture-perfect hills, bays and beaches. Kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, trekking and jungle explorations provide added opportunity for further immersion in this pristine ecosystem.
Able to cover vast distances in a short span of time — and in any sea condition — Aqua Blu reveals this unique part of the world in a manner not seen before and with just 15 suites promises an active adventure like no other.
A&K’s 12-day Hidden Indonesia: Bali to Komodo journey is priced from $18,260 per person twin share. Journeys commence 7 April 2020.
