We spent a month traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Rumah Dharma was absolutely the highlight. The property consists of 4 separate bungalows with decent bathrooms and ac. Each has its own little front porch which is a great area to read or just relax and enjoy the beauty of the scenery. The dinners are good with a great selection of... More

There are four identical brick rooms which are very large and enclose an open bathroom. The bed is huge and there is a satisfactory but not super cool AC. The shower pressure is a bit weak but who cares? And the rooms are safe. It is all about the location. Rumah Dharma is in the middle of some rice fields... More

We stayed in one of the bungalows and add on an extra bed.. The bungalows had an open bathroom concept which is quite challenging... More

Rumah Dharma was the last night of our trip and it was the best place we stayed out of all of hotels, guesthouses, losmens... The food is absolutely amazing. We had such a last delicious traditional javanese dinner and breakfast. The service is excellent.... More

I wish I could give it a higher rating. The setting is superb with a view of the surrounding mountains and rice fields along a small country lane where life passes by slowly-as many bikes and horse and carriages as motor bikes. The food was excellent and very affordable and the cook catered well for the one vegetarian in our... More

A beautiful and tranquil place to stay. The rooms and landscape are well maintained. The dining area opens up into padi fields and Borobudur can be seen in the distance on a clear day. It's a 2 min drive on motor bike to Borobudur. Great location for a dash to see sunrise at Borobudur temple. Medi helped to register for... More

And the place is conveniently located to visit the Borobudur and from here you can also visit the place from which... More

My wife, baby ( 3 months old can go too !) and myself have spent 3 nights at Rumah Dharma and it's hard to describe how good it was. About the lodge itself, it's clean, with a warm living area, big open bungalows with comfy bed, relatively quite for Indonesia ( prayers apart but can't avoid it anywhere) and the... More
