As we wanted to see the temples, we stayed at Shankara for two nights. One night is sufficient as there is nothing to do around the area. Moreover, the mantra chanting starts at 2.30 am, which makes it mission impossible to fall asleep! Also, the breakfast is really average. On the other side, staff will take car of your entrance tickets to Borobodur and to Prambanan if you wish so.

I came to Shankara seeing all the good reviews. First when I entered it looked alright, but my first room had a funny smell to it. After realizing that the WiFi network didn't work we got switched to another one, and that one didn't work either. They claimed an entire side isn't working. They mentioned there was an event that evening, didn't put too much thought to it. It was a live band blasting so hard that everything in my room was shaking. They originally told me it would be over at 11pm which is very late already considering this resort caters to people doing the sunrise tour, but the staff did not have things in control and it went over by about half an hour for the band, but the partiers are still going nuts late into the night. Miserable experience.

I’m having quite high expectation for this place as I read on the review it seems great place to stay. Here’s my experience Check in is quite smoot, we don’t have to wait too long while we were come about 1pm and the room was ready. When came inthe room the terrace so nice with the fish ponds surronding the room but when I saw the bed, the’re was some stain on the linen something yelowish, the toom quite spacious, we book triple room with one queen and a single bed which suitable for gamily of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). Bathroom is so average, the towel not really bright as it’s white color but it doesn’t look too white anymore. It’s an open bathroomin some part of the bathroom the roof is open and since my room was in the corner and side by side with the restaurant, somehow a bit afraid people pass by can see inside the bathroom. For all the staffs they are nice and helpfull, the hotel alao provide for some tour package to visit some villages nearby by bicycle or VW car. Also they can help us if we want to have borobudur sumrise experince.

We stayed 2 nights when we were joining Borobudur Marathon, and it was perfect choice that we had never regret! Only 1 km away from the Candi Borobudur complex, so we didn't have to be worried about arriving on time before the race start and not too exhausted walking back to the hotel after finishing the race. The hotel layout which arrange rooms with swimming pool as the center of view plus the rice fields surrounding the site is very nice! The bed room is cozy with spacious open air bathroom and bath up was complete the post marathon relaxing time! The food also not bad with friendly chef that we had nice chit chat when we're having dinner at the garden.

A very comfortable 2 nights stay for us. Food was good as well. We tried the dinner when it was raining heavily. Hotel provided free shuttle to see the sunrise at borobudur which was a pleasant surprise for us. Great service, location and will be back again!
