Villa Borobudur offerd us the most positive & relaxing experience for 10 days over Christmas & New Year. Our villa, Menorah, perched on the hillside offered every comfort & gave unforgettable stunning views over the valley to Borobudur Temple and the mountains beyond. We found It extremely relaxing swimming in your own private pool surrounded by natural vegetation while still... More

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

Villa Borobudur easily ranks as the most unpretentious and genuinely positive service experiences it has ever been our pleasure to receive. From the planning via email (thanks to Yohana and Iva), to the pick up at the airport (the airport itself needs some improvement, but the 90min drive to the Villa passed swiftly - especially with a friendly driver and...

My family (children almost 3 and 6), husband, helper and I spent the Christmas holiday in villa Merbabu at Villa Borobudur. We all thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night, 3 day stay. The villa and surrounding setting were stunning, with amazing craftsmanship, local art, and of course breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding volcanoes. The service was also top notch....

My stay was excellent and I hated to leave! The staff is what makes this place so special, everyone was delightful, helpful, courteous and willing to share their expertise with us in a personal way. As an example, one day we asked to take a walking tour (we were a group of photographers) just to explore our own. The staff... More

Remarkable stay with great service. Stayed here for 2 nights and love the beautiful views. Awesome morning greeted with birds flying around ... the villa high in the hills facing paddy fields overlooking both mountains and glimpse of the temple from far. Only drawback is a bit noisy at night as nearby mosque and far away from international airport. Not... More

Even the most world weary of travelers would agree that the views and setting offered by Villa Borobudur are breathtaking. Of the four days that we were there, there was never a time that the valley and the mountains around Menoreh Hill not astound us. For this alone, we would come back again and again. What made the stay even... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights at Villa Menoreh, which includes all meals. We weren't sure that we'd like having all meals at the villa, but it was perfect. The food was quite good and the chef was flexible when, for example, we asked for kangkung or tempeh or sambal. The villa was perched on the mountain, overlooking... More

Villa Borobudur exceeded my expectations on all fronts – excellent service, beautiful accommodations, breathtaking views of the stunning Central Java landscapes bordered by volcanoes.
