Among the listed places is Komodo Island in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), which is described by the publication as “ideal for intrepid families and honeymooners who want an experience all to themselves, away from other tourists.”


Tom Marchant, the cofounder and owner of travel company Black Tomato, recommends the Dunia Baru vessel built from Indonesian teak as the place to stay.

Meanwhile, the founder and CEO of membership-based luxury travel company Indagare, Melissa Bradley, recommends readers to stay at Nihiwatu in Sumba.

Indonesia’s national flag carrier, Garuda Indonesia, offers a direct flight from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo in Flores, NTT. This month, Sriwijaya Air is set to add more flights from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo.
