Jakarta! That website...... Awesome what does the area have to offer for mountain bike trails and hiking? The Blok M looks very um Delicious and its funny how everything is just plain spelled out just like it is.... So far thats is one of 2 possible locations that made the list. Thanks
Yeah just remember, with Blok M, you get what you pay for........and sometimes more..........
As for hiking and mountain biking you have to leave Jakarta and go up to what they call mountains here or hills in VA, there are some trails in Puncak
(appx. 1 1/2 hour away) but even better as the climate is better and town is smaller than Jakarta is Bandung
and Bandung has a good close knit expat community. Personally when the wife and I want to get away but stay in Indonesia we go to Ubud
about 2 1/2 hours outside of Denpasar (Where everyone goes when they talk about Bali) on the island of Bali. Ubud has a great expat/artisy community and is up in the hill country as well so the climate is good as well, we always stay at http://www.mayaubud.com/
but if romance and truly getting away from it all, then Amankila is the place but do not go alone as this place is for couples not for singles http://www.amanresorts.com/page.aspx?id=260
it is located about a 3 hour drive from Denpasar airport (they will pick you up at the airport as part of their service) and is located on a hill side right on a great beach and directly across from the island of Lombok. When you look at the room rates jusr remember as a resident here I get a 50% discount.........
Try these 2 websites, ask questions, just like BWOT, most you will get straight answers but others............
