In essence you’re camping on a deserted island. But you’re unlikely to have ever experienced such tented luxury before. Or explored such a castaway paradise.
You rub your eyes and walk out onto your canopied terrace, the early morning sun gently warming your face. And there, before your sleepy eyes, is a wild rusa deer quietly grazing at the edge of the surrounding jungle. You look up and a macaque is peering down at you from the lofty branches of a nearby tree. You pause. Should you tiptoe back inside for your camera and risk disturbing the moment, or simply capture the scene in your own memory?
Don’t worry; if you include a stay at Amanwana on Moyo Island during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Indonesia there will be many such unmissable moments. The island is a symphony of jungle rich in wildlife and some of the most deserted white beaches in Indonesia.
