Everything was very clean, the bed comfortable, the shower hot. There were no fly screens and no a/c but... More

We stayed at Villa Sumbing Indah for 3 nights. We chose to stay here as it was close to Borobudur and less expensive than other hotels in the area which were listed on Tripadvisor. Our room was the VIP villa for two which came with a living room and dining area, with lovely teak wood furniture. There is no air-conditioning... More

Located on a small country road in the midst of rice fields, Sumbing Indah is perfect for those seeking solitude, comfort and local culture. We were here for three days and wished we had booked for a few more days. The accommodation was perfect. The food was good. Nice pool. Great local walks through the rice fields. The day trip... More

If you think Ubud is a great place to relax? maybe it is. But you got to come here to experience the whole lots of Indonesian holistic nature, the volcano, the temples, the rice paddy field, the countryside in one place! This is something Ubud doesn't have. It's in a remote area but whose are holidaying in noisy place? It... More

Comfortable rooms next to the pool and good food (Indonesian or French if you like). Christophe and his wife can help organise transport (to the Borobudur), visits, outings (very nice 2-3 hours walk through the ricefields with old Hindu temple on top with spectacular views.

We spent 4 nights recently at Villa Sumbing. The room was spacious and the pool 2 steps away. A welcome drink when we arrived back each day was a pleasant touch. Christophe and his wife were very helpful and arranged onward train tickets for us. A high spot was the 3 hour trek he arranged for us through the local... More

We only spent a night here, having arrived late in the evening and having left early in the morning to catch the Borobudur sunrise. The Good: The food at the restaurant was reasonably priced and delicious, which was a relief after our long journey, given that this place is tucked away in a fairly remote area and doesn't have any...

Lovely setting on the hill above Borobodur town. Great views of Mt Merapi We had the end room round the corner from the pool, with three separate rooms + bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable.
