My husband and I needed to get away and just relax for a week, we wanted to have some adventures/trips but mostly we wanted to stop and spend time just enjoying life & not routines. We booked our week at Villa Borobudur and we were not disappointed. We were collected from the airport and driven to the hotel, which was... More

My sister and I had a two-night stay at Villa Borobudur as a short trip away whilst my sister was visiting me in Singapore. We chose Villa Borobudur on a recommendation from a friend and it was fabulous! We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the Villa Kayangan - a two bedroom villa perched up a steep hill, with... More

I have to say this place is the highlight of our trip to Indonesia. We arrive quite late, since we did a city tour around Jogja beforehand. The place is not somewhere easy to find, luckyly we have a driver and he had to ask the local a few times before we find the place. From then on, the hotel... More

We had a lovely time at a place with great views of Borobudur . It was unnecessary to go for a sunrise tour as you could watch the sun set or rise over Borobudur from the comfort of your living room. The service was very good as many people would come in and raise/lower blinds , clean up or serve... More

Dear Mick, Thank you for your review and for pointing out how witnessing the sunrise from your villa can be just as magical as from the Borobudur temple. They both have a lasting impact we believe :-) We are also happy to hear you appreciated the discretion of our staff and their attention to details. Next time, you will hopefully... More

Can only repeat what other guests have said: Villa Borobudur is lovely, situated up on its mountainside aerie, just a short hotel car ride away from Borobudur Temple. It is gorgeous in setting and design with an exceptionally personable and accommodating staff for which no detail was too small in ensuring our comfort and enjoyment of the Borobudur area. Without...

Had an absolute amazing stay in Villa Borobudur. From the moment they pick you up in the airport (included transfers!) to us arriving with everyone out to meet us with cold towels, you know you are in for a good stay. We stayed late at night, so couldn't see the amazing view until the morning, but the hotel is in... 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.
