My stay in Villa Borobudur is already some months ago, but I keep on dreaming back to the days I spent there. I can not decide what I miss the most: maybe the views over the valley, I stayed in Villa Merapi, and the view to the volcanoes were just breathtaking. Or the atmosphere of the villa and the area,...

It was highly recommended and we booked it for 2 nights last March. The place is perfect. There is no other word to describe it. You feel very welcome, the... More

The locations is spectacular, perched on a mountain overlooking Borobudur and the plain below. Really great location. The service is good but overall very simple. The staff is comprised of a bunch of very sweet, nice, young women...none seems particularly empowered or sophisticated. Given the price point (especially for Indonesia where we stayed elsewhere in excellent hotels at reasonable prices)... More

Dear Nupur, Thank you for your review and we are sorry to read that your stay did not meet with your expectations. Regretfully you only stayed one night with us, probably that was too short to really capture the concept of Villa Borobudur.

Pick-up at airport and after 90 mn you arrive at your villa. The full staff was there dedicated to our stay and ready to make a must of our stay. We were upgraded in the highest point of the resort and we spent 3 days. Meals are prepared to your order and very affordable (javanese cooking). You can rent a... More

Dear Nicole, Thank you for your review, wonderful that you like your stay in Villa Kayangan so much! Kayangan translates into "heaven" and as it indeed so high up on the slopes of the Menoreh mountains - you are almost there ;-).

Wonderful property, really great staff and superb location make this a truly unique place. The Diponegoro room has an unbeatable view of the valley, including the Borobudur temple and Merapi volcano.

We stayed in Villa Borobudur last year 13-16.02.2013. We had very special and unforgettable stay. View is stunning. Rooms are absolutely beautiful with all the wood carving.

What a place! The accommodations are absolutely beautiful, the food is excellent, and the staff is amazing. It's a bit off the beaten path and you need to use the hotel-supplied transportation to get to area tourist spots, but they have many suggestions for half-day tours and all were good. The hotel's very pleasant and attentive staff accompany you on... More
