Beautiful nature vibe, most gorgeous flowers and palm trees all around the resort. Cottages are small and comfortable. Beds are good, shower is good. Two chairs outside with a little table. It is nothing fancy but if you enjoy nature and surrounded by the sound of crickets and birds than you are in the right spot! The pool is lovely... More

This is truly paradise. What a beautiful and very well maintained hotel. We stayed here for three nights and it was wonderful. The room (superior) was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable and the room had ac. Breakfast (with homemade jams and cheese!) and dinner were good. The garden is absolutely lovely, the sound of the river and the... More

This is a beautiful property set in gorgeous gardens that run down to a small river with views of the hills beyond. Rooms are quite simple but have A/C and are clean and comfortable. The main building is lovely - colonial style, high ceilings and open to the beautiful gardens and breezes. The pool was wonderful and the staff here... More

Cottages were booked by tour operator as a necessary stop between Malang and Kuta (Bali); one has got to sleep somewhere ... Rooms are very basic as is the bathroom. WiFi in restaurant and lobby only. The restaurant is the best there is in the neighbourhood but remains basic, is entirely in open air. Breakfast equally basic with own produced... More

we stayed here during 1 night on our way from Bromo to Ijen. The hotel has a nice location, close to a river, all rooms are small bungalows/villas. It rained a lot during our stay. I found the hotel room to be very basic, it was rather warm in the room and the A/C was not powerful enough to cool... More

Cottages in the middle of a garden and a swimming pool. It's simple (no airco and only wifi in the lobby) but really liked the atmosphere. Breakfast is good (a lot of home made products). Bathroom is very basic, but ok (western toilet and shower)

Loved our stay here but was sadly far too quick - the gorgeous pool overlooking the river and hill is gorgeous and perfect for cooling off in! It's even better during the sunrise and set as the nightlife becomes more active and you can see bats swooping overhead! The rooms were amazing and we could here the surging river all... More

When I used to travel around Java, many years ago, there were many beautifully situated old hotels, that retained a feel of old Java. There are very few now remaining. In July we were driving from Jakarta to Bali, and with time on our hands, we followed the southern roads all the way. Early evening, on the way to Banyuwangi... More

My husband and I and our two kids stayed just two nights and it was absolutely paradise. The setting could not be more peaceful or more stunning - traditional bungalows set in gorgeous tropical gardens, with a fast-rushing and sparkling river below us and a lush green mountain on the other side.

This is a very basic hotel, but a true jewel in its kind. The location is rather poor, but once entered the premises, you’ll find yourself almost in small village with well-maintained gardens. The rooms are all ground level and have a nice porch to sit at night. The local fauna is well represented with huge bats (‘flying dogs’) and... More
