When the night comes, you will feeling a ghost around you. The hotel rooms is located in back corner of the resort, far from main building and restaurant which located near main gate, during the night, the street leading from the lobby to the room very dark and twisty. This is typical small boutique hotel which have a good spa... More

Kayu Arum's dinner is excellent find in Salatiga, The menu is western and asian - fusion. You are also able to have decent wine and good beer at two storey restaurant. For weekend there was a pool party: live music and nice food.

We love Kayu Arum Resort in Salatiga. The hotel Is beautifully build as an "old and classic style"' with wooden furniture in the midst of lush garden. The swimming pool uses fresh spring water. The spa is absolutely must try one! Price-wise, it is affordable, and it comes with afternoon tea as well, the location is not in the main... More

My first reaction was: This can't be true! How can such an amazing resort be in the middle of nowhere in this quiet town of Salatiga!? The ambiance is heaven-like. The staff are very friendly (but they aren't annoying and let you go about your business). The spa is fairly good and very professional. The best part though, is the... More

This is my first stay here and in Indonesia. Amid the insane traffic right on the main drag hides this top notch resort. I have been treated and feel special here especially after a hot long business day. The food has been very good service is very quick except for getting the bill. The only area that needs improvement is... More

This was an unforgettable experience. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. A beautiful garden to walk in and a large swimming pool. But the most amazing is the food.... an international menu with plenty of choices. Some dishes are like Indonesian-European fusion cuisine. The quality and presentation are excellent, thinking of the Sumbawa honey... More

Stay one night at the hotel is not enough, that is my first words to impress my feeling on that hotel. At the beginning it was not very bright and I doubt that the hotel can accomodate my needs on a hotel, but after I entering my room, I really surprised that they have spacious room with nice and clean...
