At the end of two very busy weeks of work in Jakarta, I took a couple of days to travel to Borobudur to see the temple (a must-see World Heritage site) and relax before heading back to the US. Found Villa Borobudur on Trip Advisor and could not have made a better choice. Everything was perfect, from the pickup at... More

Smooth transfer, lovely hotel in the most beautiful location. Nice food, staff could't have done more for us, even a packed lunch and a temple detour our transfer back. Woudn't hesitate to book this hotel for price and location. We were a family with a 12 year old.

My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Villa Borobudur. The views are breathtaking from the open Javanese style rooms which are large and beautifully decorated. The staff and service was second to none. For visiting the Borobudur Temple, the location is perfect, just a short ride down to the valley and entry was arranged through 'the back door'... More

Four of us stayed four nights at Villa Borobudur in Villa Kayangan. The rooms are gorgeous -- an open air living room flanked by two bedrooms, each with its own bath. The Javanese woodcarving is incredible and the villa comfortable. The large deck offers an amazing view of the town, the mountains and even Borobudur temple. And the swimming pool... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Borobudur for 4 nights in January 2015. Absolutely amazing stay, the villa was gorgeous, the view fantastic and the staff very professional and attentive. The villa was without doubt one of the most memorable places I have ever stayed. I can not recommend this resort highly enough.

we had a wonderful 5 night stay. The views and staff were amazing. The upgrade was very welcome. The guests were all invited to the opening of an art exhibition, with traditional dancing and other community activities. It was good to meet the artists whose work was on the villa walls. It is good to stay somewhere that is rooted... More
