We booked a 3 night stay at Villa Sumbing and really had a great time. The staff is the kindest you can imagine and we found it very nice to be outside the city although close enough from Borobudur. The surroundings are very nice, the villages around are intact and people everywhere are amazingly friendly, smiling and welcoming. The rooms... More

From the time we arrived Christophe and Yanti spoilt us. The accommodation was exceptional and the staff were so helpful and polite. Transport was arranged for all tours we wanted to do and the drivers were knowledgeable. Christophe even woke me at 4.30am and personally took me to see the sun rise over the Merapi volcano. The scenery from the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa Sumbing Indah in January 2015. The setting is remote, but absolutely breathtaking. The owners are incredibly gracious and make sure that their guests have everything you need. On our first day, we had tickets to go to Borobudur at sunrise, and the villa coordinated our 3am transportation for us. The restaurant has... More

We chose Villa Sumbing as it was close to the Borobudur temple complex and had excellent reviews. It was certainly much more than our family expected. It is small, basic with the most beautiful surreal location, being situated amongst the mountains and paddy fields. We used the large swimming pool at our doorsteps only once, as there was so much...

It was a breathtaking experience to wake up with 3 majestic mountains - Mount Sumbing from the back and Mounts Merbabu and Merapi in front of our room. It was also a perfect location for capturing the sunrise. Echoing the rest of the reviews, yes, it was a gem of a place with very lovely hosts who made you feel... More

This is a really simple little hotel. Basic and clean. Nestled in the country side with a fantastic view and a pool. Although a little out of the way, transport is provided by the hotel at very reaosnable prices. The massages were also a real bargain and there is nothing more convenient than having a massage in your own room!... More

I found this gem on Trip Advisor and made a late booking when I found myself on my own in Jakarta and decided that it was a good opportunity to travel and Borobudhur was on the top of my bucket list. The owner, Christof, had been extremely responsive to several questions I had asked in emails, had arranged a car... More

The premises are really private with a great view of the rural area and Mt Merapi and Mt Sumbing. Truly picturesque. We did a walk around the village and the people were extremely friendly and helped us out when we lost the way. Truly rustic living away from the city and you just simply slow down and unwind to the... More

A spectacular location, great pool, very comfortable accommodation and the food (Indonesian) was really good (at least, it was good for us). The people at this small hotel really made us very welcome. Its about 90 minutes from Yogya (depending on traffic), and about 40 minutes from Borobudur. As others have said, there are some good walks around the rice... More

Great rural location with a view of the paddy fields. Some nice walks can be done around the village. A walk up the road will take you to a large village market - all kinds of birds, food and clothes for sale. Villas are spacious and the decor is very authentic. Pool is large for a villa property. The swing... More
