This was the second time i stayed in this fantastic hotel. The big staff was as always very helpful with everything. They have there own transportation to the center and bring you everywhere you want. The rooms are big and quiet, the pool is big enough to do laps in the morning, the restaurant serves good food and the women from the spa will give you a good massage.

I am Yoga Efendi, a traveler from Yogyakarta. Officially this is my third visit to this resort but my second review. I Saw many improvement from this accommodation such as the cleaness, the hospitality, the services, the quality of the foods, and the premium coffee menu. I have to say The General Manager, Mr. Markus Kartono was doing great management. I've tried the facial massage last night and wow! Very good treatment by the therapist, Ms. Nia Widyanti. Special credit for the coffee barista, Adi Chandra has amazing skill in Latte Art and very nice welcome by Ms. Septi as a receptionist. The last, the breakfast is amazing this morning. Kuddos for the great service. My guest from London is so happy to stay herealso.

I literally shouted with excitement when I arrived at this resort, because I did not have to drive all the way far from home to reach this heavenly place for family getaway. We booked deluxe room with the garden view. I love the Javanese vintage design of this resort with serene and leafy garden. They have a collection of trees that are rarely found by urban kids like mine, such as Bodhi tree, Cinnamon tree, Lontar tree, etc. The room and resort was clean, nice and friendly staffs, buuut...one thing that bothers me is the cutlery for breakfast, it was cheap, thin, easy to bend, hardly strong enough to cut sausages , with a little rust on the spoon. Invest in decent hotel standard cutlery please. My husband will have to drag out the kids and I to leave the resort if it wasn't because of the lousy wifi connection.
