It's an excellent stay with good quality of information on historical background of each of the premise. It provides a great traditional Javanese rural environment with paddy fields. Highly recommended for a meeting or workshop.

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

The accommodation is based on small traditional wooden hoises reclaimed from around the area, that have been converted into stand alone... More
