Location & getting there
Isle Des Indes 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 Des Indes is a beautiful petite jewel in the Java Sea reachable via a leisurely cruise onboard our vintage motor sailing yacht the ‘Raden Mas’. Speedboat or Helicopter transfers are also available for those who prefer the air, excitement and a speedy journey.
The Des Indes 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.
If you would prefer a speedy journey via our speedboat or a breathtaking helicopter transfer please contact us for further information on info@isledesindes.com

Conservation
Island Restoration
Isle Des Indes is a dream realized by Indonesian antiques aficionado David Salman. David first discovered the island over twenty years ago. He had leased a simple cabin on a neighbouring island and would swim daily across the channel to explore the uninhabited islet. Left unattended for years, the island had lost some of its foliage and had suffered some reef erosion. With a clear vision of restoration in mind, David set about trying to purchase the island, which was clearly not for sale. With characteristic tenacity, he persevered and finally secured Isle Des Indes two years later.
David then set about restoring the delicate ecosystem of the island and it’s beaches. There are two channels flowing alongside and the shifting currents, combined with some damage to the reef, had eroded part of the shore. David constructed a natural stone breakwater to prevent currents from damaging the island.
He then began a reef protection program, educating local fishermen and re-attaching corals. The results after several years are outstanding. Not only is the coral reef thriving, but the beautiful sandy beaches on all sides of the island have also been preserved.
On land he planted numerous indigenous trees including pandanas and whistling sea pines known as casuarinas. Both species are resistant to salt-laden breezes and tolerant of sandy soil. In amongst the island’s flora, David created meandering sandy pathways that allow you to explore and enjoy all parts of the island.
Environmental Care
Isle Des Indes mission is to impact as little as possible on the nature of the island. In construction, we sought to minimize our impact on the environment by using recycled building materials almost exclusively bought locally and using the skills of local craftsmen. Committed to ecologically friendly solutions, a septic tank has been installed as well as a desalination plant to ensure guests can enjoy fresh bathroom water. A natural water treatment system takes wastewater from the showers and washbasins, processes it and recycles it for use in the gardens. We minimize our electricity consumption by using low voltage LED and CFL lighting and limited landscape lighting. We avoid using plastic by using refillable bottles in the bathrooms. We purchase as much organic produce as possible and avoid using processed products and produce basics such as juices and pastries ourselves.

Features
Villa Overview
First steps onto Isle Des Indes 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.

Bedrooms
Main Joglo
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.
Bathrooms- main Building
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.

Balinese Lumbung Room
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.
