A must place to stay. The building has colonial structure and surrounded by trees. The pool also stunning. Staff are well welcome and kind. The resort feel when entering the place were aswome. Will be come back. A bit advise is that hotel direction were not found on main street, bit challenge since it's in the middle of a village.

This is a wonderful place to stay, about half way between Semarang and Jogja. This part of Java is spectacular, dominated as it is by broad volcanic vistas, steep waterfalls, hiking/biking trails and ancient Hindu temples. And Kayu Arum embellishes the area, at least in appearance. The accomodation wing is colonial style and although only 7 years old, has the... More

The building and garden present wonderful ambiance for relaxing and retreating from the hustle and bustle of city life. The room is equipped with a balcony where you can spot a mountain in the morning. Breakfast really needs improvement, though. We were awaken by the early morning prayer chanted from a mosque nearby and because it was sunday, it was... More

My mom and I had just one night at Kayu Arum but wish we could have stayed longer! Due to our evening arrival time we unfortunately were not able to take advantage of the spa, but explored the whole property and found all of the facilities to be beautiful and clean. Our room was huge, and in the area farthest... More

I stayed in this hotel with my friends from UK and Australia, who were normally accustomed in staying at cheap villas in Bandungan, before going for a railtour in Ambarawa. Since I drove my car all the way from Surabaya to this hotel, I was initially perplexed by its rather hidden location (I initially thought this hotel is located in... More

This hotel was chosen for us by a tour company, and we arrived early evening after a long day on Indonesian roads. Initially we were disappointed that it was so far out of the city, and the rain meant we had to spend the evening there. What a lovely relaxing setting, sipping beer on the terrace, and enjoying the views... More

The plantation style of the hotel made it an appealing and interesting place to stay, and our room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, the pool seemed to have a film over it & not appear as clean as we would have liked it to be - thus we decided to give swimming a miss, which was disappointing as there wasn't...
