Great place. Lovely Javanese architecture. The swimming pool after a long hot day in town is great! Meals were included in the price - but the choice was limited to only Indonesian food (something else than rice would have been nice for breakfast). So was the pick up at the airport. The main downside (beside the lack of choice for... More

The place is outside of Yogya, close to different villages. Very good when you want to see village life up close. It's still close to the Yogya (20 mins to train station, 10 mins to Kraton). 3 Indonesian meals & coffee/tea time are included in the price, including airport pick up both ways. They also do free Malioboro drop offs.... More

Property set-up wise: traditionally terrific, everything we needed for a convenience hotel room was there, but brace yourself: No TV. F&B selection was good and unique; they even have "Grilled Squirrel with Blackpepper Sauce" on the menu. My recommendation would be to try their delightful "Teh Poci" (traditional tea in a clay pot) for a delightful afternoon. Service: excellent staff.... More

My husband and I were staying at another accommodation nearby. However, we thoroughly enjoyed eating a few meals at the restaurant on the premises. The food was delicious, extremely reasonable in price and authentic. The staff were delightful and most anxious to help us order exactly what we wanted. We learned to make sure they didn't add sugar to our... More
