Three female friends and I stayed in this hotel during our brief trip to Borobudur last month. We chose Plataran over Amanjiwo because of the cheaper price and recommendation from our friends who have been to both and I am very satisfied with my experience. Check-in to our two villas was smooth and fast and friendly. We were provided with... More

Our family recently stayed at Plataran from July 11 to 14th, and we had 1 Paddy Cabana and 1 villa with a plunge pool. We were instantly in awe of the peaceful surroundings and amazing views over the valley. The staff could not be more courteous, friendly and helpful. We did a number of tours organized through the hotel as... More

Warm and welcoming staff. We spent 1 night in their garden villa - spacious and confortable. We had a very good dinner around the pool and an absolute delicious breakfast. The kids appreciate the pool - clean and refreshing.

Resort setting and location is simply stunning. However do not bother paying USD 250 per night for the paddy cabana room which is one of the most impractical spaces I have come across and where I was relieved to get out of after one night (normally one wants to stretch one's stay at a "luxury" resort). You are paying for... More

Dear ttwannabe, Paddy cabana is one of our products in Plataran Borobudur designed to provide certain guests first-hand experience at living in a real Javanese small house at the lower area of our resort which offers a picturesque view of paddy fields and the Borobudur villages. It is part of our continuous effort to equip our resort with international standard... More

The hotel is beautiful, amazing location with stunning views of Borobudur ( but quite far away). Great breakfast. The coconut treatment at the spa is pure bliss. We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was beautiful but no view. The stone bathtub is just perfect! The Temple is overcrowded. It is worth seeing at sunrise.

Fantastic location, with a great view on the Borobudur temple from the terrasse where you have breakfast. Small but lovely "villa" rooms in a nice and hilly garden. Nice welcome with a short massage. Clean room and bathroom, although some insects flying arround, quite normal under this climate. Friendly, fast and efficient service. The only dispointment was the diner in... More
