Effective from June 10, 2015, U.S. Citizens do not need a visa to travel to Indonesia as long as their travel is purely for tourism and will be for less than 30 days. U.S. Citizens who enter Indonesia under the visa exemption must depart after 30 days. No extension is allowed and no adjustment to another visa status is permitted.
To be considered for the visa exemption, U.S. Citizens must enter and leave through one of five international airports (Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Kualanamu International Airport in Medan, Juanda International Airport in Surabaya, or Hang Nadim Airport in Batam) or one of four seaports (Sri Bintan Tanjung Pinang, Sekupang Batam, Batam Centre Batam, or Tanjung Uban Riau).

You will need a U.S. Passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your arrival in Indonesia. Your passport must also have two blank pages, not including endorsement pages.
Visa-on-Arrival is not available to government travelers who want to enter Indonesia on a diplomatic or official passport for an official purpose or mission.
