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

First let me say most of the reviews here are accurate. This jewel of a place is away from most everything. I travel Indonesia a lot and usually stay in larger cities but from here on when working in tis area this will be my first choice. Although no air conditioner with the fan the nights are fine.

We were completely bowled over by how lovely this place is, for the price, we hadn't expected something so good.( We had only booked for 2 nights ) Our room was large with an adjoining sitting area and a large bathroom. 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
