We stayed at 'Ijen Resort & Villas' for 2 nights, as part of our 3 week roundtrip on Java and Bali. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed with a refreshing fruit drink. The resort is located in a remote and unspoiled rural area of East Java, surrounded by terraced rice fields and rainforest. The scenery is magnificent and breathtaking.
We stayed in a deluxe room in a bungalow (nr. 108) with terrace facing the rice fields. The room was clean, spacious, had very comfortable beds, an indoor bathroom with wash-stand and an outdoor shower and toilet.
The open air restaurant serves good food at lunch as well as at diner (we only ate a la carte so we don't know the taste of the buffet). The breakfast is a bit average.
Overall experience: fantastic location, panoramic vistas, fresh mountain air, total tranquility, relaxed atmosphere, comfortable room, beautiful garden, beautiful pool, good service and a friendly staff.
The only downside could be the fact that the road which is leading to the resort is a 3,5 kilometers long, very rocky and bumpy track. But hé, who cares, this is part of the rural beauty.
It takes about one and a half hour drive from the resort to the starting point for the 3 kilometers hike to the Ijen Crater. Climbing this crater is absolutely well worth the trip.
Tip: book a footmassage in the resort for after you have climbed the crater.
