This is a lovely hotel, with large rooms overlooking spacious and colourful tropical gardens. It is quiet and secluded with a large pool in the gardens. The food was excellent for our evening meal and the service here is terrific, both at reception and in the restaurant. We sleep well here and were comfortable.

First time here, we just stopped by for lunch. The service is superb and the food is delicious. With a lot of trees, you feel like in the middle of a beautiful garden. Eventhough there ws an event happened at the same time, they still can serve us with no delay

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.
