A familiar experience that we always have since 2009 every time we stay at Plataran BOROBUDUR Resort and Spa, and our personal assistant Butler, Mas Bimo makes our stay even more relaxing. The large Modern Villa with a Flair of traditional house among lots of trees absorb all of our anxieties... Which is the kind of Holidays that we are looking for

Ah, Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa – where luxury meets life's little surprises. As we ventured into this haven of indulgence, we found ourselves navigating through a maze of high expectations and unexpected twists, turning our stay into a memorable escapade sprinkled with moments of charm and chuckles. Let's delve into the highlights – those moments that nearly matched the allure of the multi-page e-brochure: 1. Grand Entrance: Prepare to be welcomed with open arms, drinks, snacks, and a TV buzzing with hotel highlights. It's the perfect prelude to the Plataran experience. 2. Butler Babysitting: Assigned a personal butler, because apparently, we need someone to hold our hands through every step of our vacation. Just a heads-up, they have lives too – so expect a bit of delay in their response. 3. Scenic Serenades: Oh, the views! Borobudur Temple, just a wink away, and a landscape that could make even the Mona Lisa jealous. 4. Roomy Respite: Our accommodations resembled a Kardashian penthouse – spacious, extravagant, and filled with more amenities than we knew what to do with. Private pool? Check. Water dispenser? Check. Two sofas for when you need to stage a dramatic fainting scene? Double check. 5. Service Shenanigans: Service with a smile – most of the time. There were a few hiccups along the way, but hey, it wouldn't be an adventure without a few bumps, right? 6. Breakfast Buffet Bonanza: Rise and shine to a feast fit for a king – or someone with a bottomless appetite. The breakfast spread was so extensive, we wondered if they were trying to feed the entire village. Now, onto the eccentricities – those little surprises that kept us on our toes: 1. Neighbourly Noise: We get it, village life can be noisy. Maybe a bit more soundproofing wouldn't hurt, but hey, it added a touch of authenticity to our stay. 2. Spa Saga: With the spa under renovation, the resort transformed our room into a makeshift spa – complete with soothing music and scented oils. Unfortunately, some treatments were off-limits due to logistical constraints. 3. Butler Bloopers: Our butler had their fair share of slip-ups – from forgetting certain requests to, well, you name it. But hey, we're all human, aren't we? Even if some of us juggle tasks better than others. 4. Privacy Predicament: While Villa 202 touted tranquility, the reality was a bit more... public. Guests from the Patio had a prime view of our villa, especially our pool antics. It felt less like a secluded getaway and more like an inadvertent spectacle. But hey, who can blame them for being curious? 5. Hot Water Hilarity: Enjoy a hot shower while you can – you've got a solid 15 minutes before the warmth fades away faster than your hopes of a leisurely soak. 6. Culinary Chronicles: The menu was a journey of discovery – albeit with a few detours into familiar territory. Local flavors took a backseat to international appeal, but hey, variety is the spice of life. In the end, our stay at Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa was a whirlwind of luxury and laughs. Sure, it had its idiosyncrasies, but isn't that what makes a vacation memorable? We'll cherish the mishaps as much as the magical moments, because let's face it – perfection is overrated.

Such a charming, gorgeous and comfortable resort! Everyone was very friendly and helpful, particularly the executive butler Wisnu and the ladies in the lobby. Special mention to Awang in the Patio Restaurant who was always ready with a smile. We truly enjoy our time there.

Incredible! We stayed in the Executive Pool Villa, which was enormous. It has a beautiful wooden canopy for the bed, beautiful private pool that we just loved. The food was delicious. The staff are so very warm and wonderful. Cannot say enough. And the view of Borabudor! You cannot stay anywhere else! Take the 8:15 Borabudor excursion through Plataran. Early entrance time and great guide, Hassan.

I found this place by accident while browsing TripAdvisor looking for a beautiful & peaceful place to stay near Borobudur temple. The reviews on TripAdvisors were all glowing and I thought to myself that I should probably give this place a try. Thanks God I did and I absolutely made the right choice! This property is simply beautiful! I felt rejuvenated when leaving this place. We were greeted warmly by the staff upon check in . We upgraded our villa to the one overlooking Borobudur temple. The villa is beautiful and the view is simply amazing! I could have sat by the patio all day listening to the birds chirping with beautiful forests and mountains and of course Borobudur temple in the backgrounds . The experience was priceless! The pool was also an added bonus to cool us down from the tropical heat. Our head butler, Pak Wisnu, was amazing! He and the team even assisted me in contacting the airlines to change my departure time. Thank you for your assistance! I should also mention that every staff member at Plataran Borobudur is super friendly & nice. They are all very quick to offer assistance and always with big smiles. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all delicious. We were so happy with our meals that we requested to meet the chef to personally thank him for making us such delicious meals. My only regret about this property is that I only booked two-night stay here! Plataran Bobobudur really represents Indonesian hospitality and charms! Thank you for making our holiday a memorable one! I miss this place already ….

There simply aren’t words to properly describe the absolute amazing experience we had during our short stay at Plataran Resort. First, we were greeted by our driver, Pak Roni, at the airport with cold wash cloths and water.. chips and soda was also available. As we headed to the resort we were blessed with pleasant conversation and cautious driving, this I truly appreciated due to the stress the traffic could produce. Upon arrival we were greeted by Pak Wisnu, who introduced himself as our personal butler (butler simply isn’t the right word, he has the ability to make many things happen and quickly!). Every staff member we had the opportunity to come in contact with were genuinely friendly and always greeted us kind words and willing to assist with anything needed. Everyone from the grounds staff, restaurant staff to the office staff were amazing! Our villa was absolutely gorgeous! Well kept, clean and smelled amazing! Tue view was spectacular! As we were in Borobudur to tour the temples we booked the VIP package through the resort, something I highly recommend. Pak Roni was our guide for the day which made the day even better… he enjoys his job and it shows! Side Note: Borobudur temple only allows 1200 visitors a day, broken out in 8 sessions so plan accordingly! We went for the first tour time and it was very hot, Pak Roni suggested an umbrella which I absolutely appreciated! During our stay it happened to be my birthday and the restaurant staff surprised me with a slice of cake and sang “Happy Birthday”, with Pak Wisnu leading the way.. made my day very special! Bottom line, we HIGHLY recommend Plataran Borobudur to anyone wishing to have an amazing Javanese experience, I guarantee you will not regret it!

The resort at Borobudur is amazing. We were blown away by this place, the amenities and the service. Highly recommend for people to stay if you are visiting Yogyakarta. The proximity to the temple is a huge plus. The Plataran pledge for eco tourism is evident in almost everything that you come across at this resort. Our villa had a small pool, an outdoor sit down area which you can use to have dinner or just relax. The room was very spacious and luxurious, bathroom was big with a shower and a bath tub. The service was amazing, people very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay memorable. The food in the restaurant was amazing and the chef went out of their way to make us some Indian food.

Wonderful stay from airport pick up to drop off at our next destination. Resort is well appointed and service is attentive. F&B quality is good too. Minor issue is poor condition of the car and driver (poor English and not properly groomed) that was arranged for the Borodudur trip. It was a bit of let down.

The setting is breathtaking. Highly recommend the pool villa - not only is the room extremely comfortable and the carved ceiling beautiful, but the privacy and personal pool make this pretty close to paradise. The Patio restaurant is excellent, with Indonesian and continental options and a good wine list. But the best thing sbout Plantan Borobudur is the staff — such gracious and helpful people who take the setting and facilities and make it one of the best hotels we have ever experienced.
