After a 10 day scuba diving liveaboard in West Papua, we wanted to spend some quality time on land. From the many positive reviews, we decided on Villa Borobudur. Arrival: Flew into Yogyakarta late at night and was met by the Villa’s driver. Transfer to Borobudur was seamless and took about 90 minutes. Transfers were included with stays longer than... More

Villa Borobudur is a small luxury hotel in Central Java. It is about a one hour car journey from Jogjakarta Airport. The setting can only be described as stunning. The villas are set into a hillside looking down on the valley below and across to the Borobudur Temple complex. I was there for 3 nights with 9 friends. The place... More

It was my second time to Villa Borobudur, this time my wife accompanied me, as I wanted to share this special experience with her. We have been picked up at the Yogyakarta airport by one of the hotel drivers and brought to the Villa after about 1 hour 20 min drive. On arrival we have learned that we have been... More

Let's start of with what this is not. If you are expecting an air conditioned ultra lux boutique hotel this is not for you. This is a very unusual, beautiful hotel... Traditional Java style carved rooms open to the air with stunning views... The rooms are half board and every meal is delivered up to you - the quality of... More

The team tool such a good care and were so nice and the food was delicious fresh and healthy. You could feel this is real indonesian cooking (made less spicy). We... More

My family of four stayed at the Menoreh Villa for 3 nights. Overall, our stay has been very pleasant. As the villas are perched on the hillside, they offer breathtaking views of the Borobudur temple and its vast surroundings. The villas are nicely decorated in typical Indonesia style. The air conditioned rooms of the Menoreh villa was a great plus... More

My wife and I stayed in the Diponegoro villa for several nights and had an absolutely splendid experience. My wife planned this vacation and I was skeptical as to why we were traveling to the other side of the world to only stay several nights at a resort, visit historic temples, and turn right back. After spending the first day... More

Villa Borobudur was amazing from the moment the staff received us with lunch at our terrace overlooking the Borobudur valley and the world famous Borobudur Temple with the volcanoes Merbabu and Merapi in the background.
