Big and nice simple room, good cleanliness. Location bit far from city center but worthly paid when we arrived and enjoy the ambience, really represent of javanese architecture.
Prefect place for people who love the natural atmosphere.
Perfect escape from city's madness and very suitable for honeymooner and couple.

The pictures and online description do not reflect the real experience at this "boutique international" hotel. We needed to stay in the area to attend a conference and thought the EXPENSIVE price combined with the gorgeous photos was going to be perfect. We were sadly mistaken. The nice driver who picked us up from the airport was the only person who spoke to us, we were the only guests, there was not a soul for us to communicate with, we could not leave the property because there was nowhere to go, and the presidential suite was big, not beautiful.
Needless to say we left as soon as the sun came up and stayed in the city that was 40 minutes back toward the airport, and totally messed up our ability to access the conference.

I spent one night. Fortunately it was still low-season. The place is full with Javanese furniture. The villa has traditional 'Joglo' style. Nowadays that kind of roof costs about usd20k. Unfortunately you will have to encounter 'tekek' as what the local say. It is a sort of mini particles falling from the roof (probably came from whatever insects living inside the roof)

Breakfast is OK. You have to try the spa right beside the small river. Good place and good deal for couple or family vacation.

Hotel situated in a quiet location. Hotel design is beautiful. There is natural river inside, the landscape is also very green & natural. Furniture of Java traditional can be very interesting for foreign tourist. But some attention should be taken by the management. Room un-cleanliness really degrade the 4 star become guesthouse (many bugs, washtafel leackage, thick dust in furnitures, door exfoliate, etc)... breakfast menu is very limited & so so... As the room rate is high, but many negatives they have, would suggest you avoid this hotel & book more secure international chain hotels... NOT RECOMMENDED

It has long been an ambition to visit Borobudur and I wanted to stay in a hotel that was full of character and charm. Being a lone traveller a boutique hotel is a good choice being small and usually has a good atmosphere. I booked in for four nights and was pleased it was in the Countryside. My mistake was it was out of season and I was the only guest in the hotel.
My room was large and full of traditional teak carvings. Not badly equipped except that the layout did not make good use of the vast space available.
The gardens were truly beautiful and the staff a delight.
Why was the place in decline? Broken furniture in the garden, gym equipment was covered in dust and had not worked for years, pathways and bridges that were rotting away.
The restaurant was beautiful very traditional and full of musical instruments. The food was OK but nothing special.

It could be somewhere very special.....sadly managements must sort out its long term problems and invest in the future.

Will I be back.....NO
