Our stay was faultless - the rooms were beautiful, staff went above and beyond and were friendly and helpful. The facilities are lovely and grounds are beautiful. Very affordable and great for a weekend get-away or extended stay.

Whenever we visit Salatiga, we never want to stay in any other hotels but Kayu Arum. The ambience is just perfect. It is quiet (except some mornings where there are kids playing in the swimming pool area, normally those are outsiders as outsiders can pay to use the swimming pool), the staffs are very friendly and helpful. Overall, it's a...

Went here to look for a good cup of cappuccino. The taste was alright. A bit too light for my taste, not strong enough. But the ambience is great and a nice place to catch up with friends and families.
