As a champion in the ecotourism industry, Plataran Indonesia showcases the wonders of nature, culture and community. In celebration of Indonesia’s most valuable tourism treasures and traditions, Plataran Indonesia will be hosting numerous events throughout October at its resorts across the nation.
From 14-16 October 2021, Plataran Indonesia held a special programme dubbed Plataran Ecotourism Festivals at Hutan Kota by Plataran Senayan Jakarta, in anticipation of the launch of Plataran Treasure Hunt and The True Indonesian Ecotourism Icon.
The festival featured a dedicated area, showcasing Plataran as The True Indonesian Ecotourism Icon at Hutan Kota by Plataran Senayan Jakarta. Guests discovered a variety of exquisite offers from Plataran Indonesia’s resorts, whilst sampling several menu items that represent Bali, Bajo and Papua, along with an array of other culinary icons from the eastern end of Indonesia such as Lontar Papua, Sei Asap Sapi, Ayam Betutu, Ali Ndene Bajo and many more. Highlighting culinary heritage from three regions of the archipelago, these exclusive menu items will be available throughout October.
As a brand that highlights the beauty of nature, culture and community, Plataran Indonesia combines these themes under one concept, Plataran Treasure Hunt, which will be open to the public at both Plataran Menjangan and Plataran Komodo for the remainder of 2021. Plataran Menjangan (West Bali National Park) was recently voted one of the World’s Top Safari Destinations by the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards 2021, while Plataran Menjangan presents an equally iconic destination for nature, culture and community appreciators on the island of Flores.
True champions of global ecotourism, both award-winning resorts contribute to the development and practice of sustainable nature conservation. Consistently prioritising the conservation of endangered flora and fauna in protected forests, Plataran Menjangan provides a natural holistic experience, while also preserving the cultural way of life of the local community and the spiritual traditions of the surrounding environment. Heading to the eastern corner of Indonesia, Plataran Komodo Resort & Spa is a luxurious and comfortable resort away from the city noise, surrounded by the charms of nature. The resort offers nine villa categories, including the newest type – the Hanging Pool Villa – a duplex-style villa equipped with an infinity pool and mesmerising views of Waecicu Bay.
It wouldn’t be a complete Bajo trip without exploring the marvels of Indonesia’s marine ecosystem, both on the surface and underwater. Using a fleet of traditional Phinisi ships and state-of-the-art yachts, Plataran Private Cruises have won various national and international awards that recognise Plataran as the home of True Indonesian Sailing Experiences. The Plataran Malayeka is one of the most iconic vessels, the newest and grandest phinisi in the fleet, made in Bulukumba, South Sulawesi. Malayeka means ‘angel’, a name that embodies the heavenly beauty of the shop and the oceanic wonders she explores. The ship measures 37.8 metres in length and 9 metres wide, featuring seven lavish cabins with a capacity of 14 guests.
From 27-29 October 2021, Plataran Indonesia will welcome PT. Freeport Indonesia and the Maramowe Weaiku Kamorowe Foundation to Hutan Kota by Plataran Senayan Jakarta. These esteemed guests will be treated to an art exhibition and sale of artworks in celebration of Papuan culture, notably the creativity of the Kamoro tribe. The event will kick off with a welcome dance, performed by members of the Kamoro tribe, followed by an in-depth introduction to their art and culture. Then, there will be a screening of a documentary that delves into the traditional art form of the indigenous sculpture of the Kamoro tribe. Through these events, Plataran Indonesia actively participates in the conservation and celebration of Indonesian culture, encouraging the empowerment and mobilisation of Indonesian people towards a Golden Indonesia.
