Main Joglo

First steps onto Isle East Indies reveal a magnificent century old Javanese wooden Joglo house. This ornately hand carved open timber building was created in Central Java and was disassembled piece by piece before being transported to the island where craftsmen restored it to its former glory less than twenty meters from the water's edge. Today the Joglo house serves as the main living area and is also home to two master suites and two bathrooms. The large open atrium has two bedroom suites that are separated from the living area via Dutch colonial screens and Venetian blinds. Perpetual sea breezes whisp through the Joglo making it the perfect spot in which to relax with a book and enjoy turquoise sea views.

Joglo Suite 1: Sentong Wetan

This bedroom includes a beautifully carved antique four-poster bed, adorned with Egyptian cotton sheets and Indonesian hand woven covers. The bed is draped with mosquito nets. Wardrobe and side tables rest either side of the bed. Colonial style louver doors create shade and night and open out in the day to create the feel of luxurious camping

Joglo Suite 2: Sentong Kulon

This bedroom lies opposite Setong Wetan with an identical layout. Saloon doors and a hallway to the bathrooms separate the two suites. Shuttered windows offer both a colonial appearance and an indoor-outdoor feel of luxurious camping.


A semi open hallway leads down to two antique style bathrooms. Century old enamel washbasins, originating from the Old Dutch Planters Club in Surabaya, now rest upon cast iron stands in the bathrooms. Original taps and showerheads deliver silky soft purified water from the islands desalination plant. The floors are set with antique Javanese floor tiles. High ceilings and open bamboo grills allow for light and ventilation.

The Malay Guest House

This beautiful Malay style guesthouse sits directly beachfront, overlooking spectacular sunrises. What better way to begin the day than relaxing in a plantation chair on the veranda, watching the pastel colors of the gradually brightening sky, reflected on the shimmering sea and the glistening shoreline.

This elegant teak structure, raised on short stilts houses two beautiful antique four-poster queen sized beds occupy the bedroom suite, canopied by mosquito nets. Side Tables, comfortable plantation chairs and sun loungers outdoors complete this perfect little hideaway spot. Louvre windows open out quiet views of the pandanas and casuarinas pines.

The Lumbung

On the east shore, a leisurely three-minute walk from the main house, the Balinese Lumbung is hidden within the tropical jungle garden. Originally designed to store cultivated rice, this Lumbung serves as a bedroom, perfect for older children and teenagers. Reminiscent of a tree house and accessed by a ladder, the Lumbung houses a double bed on its floor, petite chests serving as side tables and an overhead fan. All you require for a perfect short stay! A separate toilet and outdoor shower are outside the building. The Lumbung is three meters off the ground on a raised platform and offers a stunning ocean vista and fresh sea breezes.

The Bale

There are several breathtaking spots around Isle East Indies to enjoy fresh island delights. The Bale is a cozy standalone pavilion with cushioned daybeds and traditional serving trays, a place to enjoy meals in relaxed comfort, while listening to the waves lapping against the shoreline. Guests gravitate to this area to enjoy the food sharing banquets prepared by Isle East Indies culinary team. Fresh catch of the day, accompanied by a medley of vegetables served on a bed of organic rice or mouthwatering barbeques at sunset. When the chef sounds an old ship's bell dinner is served.

For those who want to venture offshore, there are lots of water activities on offer. We provide snorkeling equipment for those who want to explore the island's underwater paradise. Kayaks are a great way to enjoy the scenery and visit neighboring islands too. If you're looking for an adrenaline kick then jump into a pair of water ski's and let the captain jet you across the strait or don some scuba gear and explore the reef below.

Isle East Indies is set amidst Indonesia's Thousand Islands (Pulau Seribu), a collection of stunning tropical islands in the Java Sea near to Jakarta. Despite it's name, The Thousand Islands comprise approximately 130 small islands surrounded by a National Marine Park and hundreds of coral reefs!

Approximately forty miles offshore, Isle East Indies is reachable via a leisurely cruise onboard our vintage motor sailing yacht the 'Raden Mas'. Speedboat transfers are also available for those who prefer the air, excitement and a speedy journey.

The East Indies experience begins at Jakarta's Ancol Marina Harbour, where guests board our 60ft vintage motor sailing yacht the 'Raden Mas'. The vessel originated from the English town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, an area synonymous with boat building. Commissioned over 40 years ago by a British aristocrat, she has been immaculately maintained, with timber decks, brass fittings and four cabins characterized by varnished wooden bulk heads and old world charm. In keeping with her aristocratic roots, when she arrived in Indonesia she was renamed 'Raden Mas' a Javanese Nobleman's title.

The journey takes approximately four hours during which drinks and light refreshments are served onboard. After a light meal guests tend to gravitate towards the shaded deck and laze on oversized cushions often spotting dolphins cavorting alongside the bow and enjoying the magical scenery of a number of tiny islands and traditional sailboats.
