If you just got married to someone that is an adventurous soul like yourself, then you might be considering going on a honeymoon to a place like Indonesia.
This is an excellent choice, as these destinations that will provide you with the spice that you crave, while having all the modern conveniences and luxury resorts that will make your honeymoon a special time indeed.
If you’re traveling to Indonesia from Europe or North America, chances are you’ll want to spend a few days getting over your jet lag before you get into the main part of your honeymoon.
After landing in Jakarta, spending a few days in a hotel, resort, or a serviced apartment will give you the opportunity to do that in comfortable surroundings.
Personally, we like the Aston Rasuna; its tastefully decorated rooms, stylish restaurant (which is open from early in the morning till late in the evening), and soothing spa will help you ease into your Indonesian holiday.
If you’re looking for something different than the Aston, perusing traveloka.com will help you find a property that the both of you can agree on.
With that out of the way, let’s get on to some of the top honeymoon getaways that one can find Indonesia…
1) Lagoi, Pulau Bintan

Those wanting to combine a visit to Singapore and Malaysia during a honeymoon in Indonesia will want to spend a great deal of their time staying in Lagoi.
Located on the island of Bintan, there are easy and quick ferry connections between this place and the city state of Singapore.
However, you might not ever decide to make that quick trip across the channel, as the beaches here are simply too beautiful to spend significant time away from them.
Seeing how this is your honeymoon, it’s probably for the best, as you will want to spend a great deal of time focusing on your relationship, and with plenty of white sand, droopy palms, and inspired all-inclusive resorts, this task will be easy to accomplish here.
2) Nusa Dua, Bali
The southern portions of Bali are talked about in the travel press as a paradise on Earth, but depending on your needs and wants, the part of this island that you stay in will play a big role in whether you actually have a great stay here.
For the recently married couple that wants a romantic setting that is as free of as many irritations as possible, we recommend staying within the gated community of Nusa Dua.
Within this compound, all the imperfections that one would normally find in a normal Indonesian city are mostly swept away, leaving you with stunning beaches and the friendly hospitality of the Indonesian people.
3) Lake Toba

If you’re looking to get out into nature for your honeymoon holiday, then flying into Medan and proceeding to Lake Toba will be what you will want to do.
With a crater lake filling the caldera that formed in the wake of a massive volcanic eruption 75,000 years ago, the water is remarkably warm, as magma still flows just beneath the lake bottom.
This also allows a number of hot springs to exist around the periphery of the lake, allowing you to have a romantic soak in the midst of the lush jungle that Sumatra is famous for.
