I have been putting off writing a review for this place, and I am very sorry. I went there about a month ago, but the memory is still fresh in my mind, just as the fresh air and fresh everything of the villa! From the very beginning of my reservation, Ibu Rubi, the villa's owner has been very helpful and... More

This hotel is not your typical 'tourist venue'. It is small with no room service, fridge or mini bar. This suited us perfectly. The hosts, service and staff are extremely attentive. They supplied a driver for our trips, advising on suitable tours and delivered complimentary drinks when we arrived back. The hotel is quite a long way from the madness... More

Villa Sumbing Indah is surrounded by beautiful Indonesian country and is so much nicer a place to stay than the main city. Christophe will take good care of you, and help you to organise your visit from start to end if you'd like. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. The pool is great too, even if you... More

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
