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. Trying to Fog the mosquitoes during breakfast time which could be a health hazard. Spa was not too relaxing as it was outdoor and just covered... More

The highlight of Kayu Arum Resort is its well-maintained classical javanese-colonial building. Combined with spacious and well-set garden, this resort offers you a great, refreshing weekend getaway. Room is spacious, and convenient. However, I did feel a little eerie at night due to the minimum lighting in the hallway. The restaurant is my favorite place so far. We can have... More

Surprising! From the lobby to your room it is a garden setting. Lovely trees, pool, stone work, and then the room. Indonesian wood furniture, comfortable bed, all the amenities. Did I mention a spa is here also. Great American breakfast. What more could you want. I hope this place makes it!
