Its truly a hidden gem in Central Java. Visited Kayu Arum several times for business, family with kids and with my spouse. We love everything about it, the rooms, the food, the gardens, service, and anything you can expect from a resort/hotel. I strongly recommend Kayu Arum for anyone visiting Salatiga and Central Java...

My boyfriend and I decided to make an overnight stop in Salatiga on our way to Semarang from Solo. As this is not a big city, there weren't many selections and we decided on Kayu Arum. The name simply was why. It has a touch of traditional and locality to it. It was a good choice, I must say. The... More

I had an excellent stay at the Kayu Arum. The quality and variety of food was great, every staff member wass warm and polite, and the stunning courtyard was well maintained. In addition to the free shuttle service in the morning and afternoon, the staff really went above and beyond to meet my needs.

I guess because we were focussed on the horse riding experience we had booked (with Havana Horses) we really didn't focus on the accommodation that was part of the package. What an unexpected surprise! We found out this resort started life as a furniture showroom. This can clearly be seen by all the tasteful furnishings and attention to detail throughout.... More

The hotel ground was excellent, beautiful property, more like dutch colonial era feel. Staff was excellent, but they miss little things such as, putting toilet balls in the bathroom which make it smell sickly.
