With thousands of volcanic islands making up the country, Indonesia definitely has some hidden gems. On some of Indonesia's more remote islands such as Sumba, Moya, and Sulawesi, travelers can discover pristine beaches, indigenous ethnic groups, pristine landscapes, and some of the most exclusive and unique accommodations the country has to offer.
To the east lies the island of Sumba and offers a collage of rolling savannahs, limestone hills with thatched villages. Here, the locals still pay attention to their past and unique tradition. The guests of the island are warmly welcomed and can stay in the incomparable Nihiwatu, where luxury and nature meet. Sumba is one of the largest islands in the East Nusa Tenggara region, along with Flores and Timor, and is famous for its ritual tribal life and ancient culture and huge megalithic tombs.
Only an hour's flight by seaplane is in the east of Bali on the north coast of Sumbawa, the almost deserted (only six fishing and farming villages) Moyo Island. Moyo Island has an abundance of hidden and pristine reefs and is home to many exotic animals. Wake up to the screams of macaque monkeys and rusa deer that inhabit this wildlife sanctuary.
Although Borneo is the largest island in Asia and is primarily identified as Malaysia, the Indonesian Kalimantan offers an epic wilderness. Sulawesi, which is east of Borneo, comprises several peninsulas that are formed around a mountainous center and looks like a dragon on the map for some viewers. Sulawesi is popular because of its beautiful, well-preserved coral reefs and diving areas such as the Bunaken National Park, the Togian Islands and the Wakatobi National Park. Marvel at and watch the orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park, which is located in the east of Sulawesi. With a relatively impassable landscape, Sulawesi is shielded from the outside world and yet you can expect distinctive architecture on this island, purple peaks that lead to jade valleys, and rice fields where farmers in conical hats go about their daily work.
