Isle Des Indes Private IslandI, Thousand Island, Indonesia Vacation Rental
Few islands in the world can lay claim to being a truly private island rental. Somewhere to kick off your shoes and traipse barefoot across an untouched shoreline. Share unforgettable moments with the ones you love in absolute tropical seclusion.
Isle Des Indes arose from the desire to create an unparalleled Private Island rental experience in Asia, in the inimitable Des Indes ‘Colonial Antique’style. Offering guests a captivating journey through time, the Isle Des Indes experience promises an exquisite journey from beginning to end. Board our vintage motor sailing yacht and set sail on the Java Sea towards one of the Thousand Islands most precious gems.
On arrival, step foot onto a powder white sand beach and be warmly welcomed by the Isle Des Indes team. Expect exceptional, discreet butler service in which your every whim is anticipated and attended to. The only thing left for you to do is to unwind and enjoy…your private island..your yacht..your experience.
Main Joglo - 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.
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.
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.
