The moment that you arrive in this beautiful green valley and settle into your cottage, you’ll feel instantly at home. You’ll stay in a small-scale spiritual resort  offering all kinds of meditation and yoga, so feel free to plunge straight in. From your resort, you can follow the path down to the river for a refreshing swim in the cool water that flows from the volcanic mountains.

Today you’ll explore the green valley of Sidemen with your guide.

The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy the beautiful area: go for a cooling dip in the river, wander around the endless rice paddies or unwind on the terrace of your charming hotel taking in the stunning views.

“From the moment I first stepped off the plane, I was swept away by Indonesia’s charm and beauty- so much so, that I’ve since lost count of how many times I’ve been! It’s got beaches, cultural wonders, wildlife & warm weather. What’s not to love?”
