lovely resort! We stayed one night in a junior suite which was a stunning room, and one in an executive room which was also very comfortable. All staff were highly attentive and professional, and we found the art gallery and restaurant very nice. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

We only stayed for one night going to Mount Bromo. We arrived quite late and had no reservation for our trip to Bromo but the girl at the reception quickly arranged that for us. She was also very helpful in booking accommodation for us for the following days in another hotel in Ketapang and told us to go a get... More

The resort are the best in Bromo Area, its very clean and artistic. The room is very comfortable and clean. The service is also good. The restaurant food is quite good but the choice of food and drinks is only a few. You should try the pisang goreng (fried banana) u'll be surprised in the presentation. I will give 5... More

Some of the reviews in here seem unfair. It's true that the rooms do seem to lack that little bit of effort which keep them a step a way from being excellent, but they're pretty good when all is said and done. Yes, take mosquito and insect repellent, you're on the side of a mountain among farmland. The views from... More

The fist thing I was trying to do was to switch off the aircon (there is none!). Love the cool air and decoration. Situated on higher grounds, we stay here for one night before embarking on our Mount Bromo hike. Friendly staff, who are always willing to make guests happy. Love the resort's landscaping, surrounded by mountain ranges. Would love... More

A cozy hide away, the architecture and ambiance relaxed the soul with serenity. The air crisp, the hospitality now becoming a standard in Indonesia, warm, friendly with anticipation to make your stay relaxed.

Greeted by the friendly employees, including a chef who is always smiling, very homey atmosphere. Modern building, the windows are large making it blend with nature. His bedroom is laid out nicely with a soft mattress, and a layer of warm blankets. bathroom is tiny but highly efficient. Over breakfast in the morning, from the restaurant I could see the... More

Java Banana (now Jiwa Jawa) seems like the only upscale accommodation available for those visiting Mount Bromo. The hotel ground was tranquil, room set-up was simple and fitted with the basic amenities one would find in any hotels, restaurant was a hit-and-miss. Breakfast was lacklustre, but dinner was pretty decent if you order the Indonesian dishes. It gets really cold... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Java Jiwa as it is now known, but did experience a couple of glitches. The architecture of the hotel is very contemporary and there is a very nice coffee shop/art gallery which serves as a communal area. The rooms are modern but a little cramped (especially the bathroom) and the 'air gap' around the... More
