It's been a while since we stayed at Villa Borobudur (August 2014), but the memories are still very vivid! We had such a fantastic time. Once you've made your way to Villa Borobudur via the traditional Javanese village, it's like you arrive at paradise on earth, or better: Java. We had the pleasure of staying 5 nights at Villa Menoreh,... More

Friends and I stayed in the three bedroom Villa Merbabu for four nights in early October. We were thrilled! Our jaws literally dropped open when we arrived at night! The property itself exceeded all expectations: Vast views of the valley and villages below, with Borobudur itself peeking up from the mist, common areas and bedrooms and en suite bathrooms comfortable...

Stayed at the Villa Borobodur for two nights from 4–6 October 2014. We were picked up from Yogyakarta airport by a driver from the Villa. He was extremely friendly even though he did not speak much English. The car ride to the Villa took 90 minutes. The car had to negotiate some really steep roads at the last leg of... More

Actually we wanted to stay at Manohara Hotel in the village due to its proximity to the Temple but it was fully booked. Instead we booked at the Villa Borobudur, the highest hotel overlooking the beautiful valley. It's a unique cluster of Javanese-style villas cleverly integrated into the nature. We stayed in the Villa Diponogoro with a private jacuzzi and... More

After 5 nights in Villa Menoreh we still did not want to leave, the four of us had a great time at Villa Borobudur. We found a nice balance between relaxing and enjoying the villa and sightseeing and activities. We visited the Prambanan upon arrival in Yogyakarta and were then driven to the Villa. The highlights of our stay were:... More

The service here is truly outstanding--from every employee without exception. You will be very well cared for. The food is fantastic, and staying at the villas offer a truly unique, relaxing and enjoyable experience. The woodwork on the villas alone is well worth seeing. Anything you want to see or do, they will arrange to take you to see it,... More

Borobudur is a perfect weekend break form Singapore, affording a good 48 hours in which you can see enough to satisfy the wanderlust, as well as having some good downtime. On arrival at Villa Borobudur we were upgraded to the Kayangan suite, lucky us, their premier accommodation perched on top of the hill overlooking the temple, surrounded by misty volcanic... More

Dear Vicky, Thank you for your wonderful review and indeed it is great for a visit for a few days from Singapore as Borobudur is so close by. It is great you got a good mix in tours and relax-time as that is also what Villa Borobudur is about. One of the reasons we started with Villa Borobudur and the... More

This was certainly the highlight of our trip to Java, other than Borobodur itself. After a 1.5 hour drive from Yogyakarta, we arrived as the sun was setting and our driver pointed out some twinkling lights half way up a mountainside. An almost vertical road up the mountain took us to the resort and our villa. The resort is a... More

Directly after arriving at our personal Villa Borobudur, we noticed that this was something completely different from any other luxury stay we had seen before. We immediately felt comfortable and relaxed after a stressful period at work. This was all due to several aspects, such as a clean, beautiful and private environment with excellent view. We also received the very... More

'Villa Borobudur' was the first hotel of our three week tour of Indonesia, I have to say it was BY FAR the best!
