With daily outings such as bicycle tours, white water rafting, golf, temple tours, cooking classes, motor cycle rides and a host of other activities that were available, it was fantastic to come back and enjoy the luxury and privacy of the Villas - pool, massages, live authentic Javanese music...

From the moment we were picked up at the airport, to when we were (sadly) dropped back, the service by the staff at Villa Borobudur was personal, kind and flawless. Every part of our stay there was incredible and we would recommend anyone to stay there without a moment's hesitation. The Villa and facilities are stunning. It's hard to know... More

Villa Borobudur takes your breath away on so many dimensions--staff who make everything work so smoothly with beautiful smiles and proactive thoughtfulness...food that astounds the tastes (in a good way), villas that are exquisite in comfort, detail and originality nestled in the hillside with come-hither pools and dining/sitting area...all in an incomparable setting overlooking a stunning valley featuring Borobudur temple...

Villa Borobudur is an amazing place. We spent 7 nights there as part of a group and were overwhelmingly impressed. The standard of service is excellent and the staff are charming. We went on several excursions organised by the villa which gave us a fabulous insight into Javanese society. The rooms are beautiful and the food was wonderful with plenty... More

My fiance surprised me with his proposal at Villa Borobudur. The set-up leading to that proposal was a nice surprise with the superb service and more so, the serene natural ambience of the villa. Not to mention, the view was unbelievable overlooking Borobudur Temple and the volcanic mountains. The local staff were very pleasant and efficient as well as accommodating.... More

It is very hard to describe the atmosphere of Villa Borobudur, the views of the Borobudur, the valley and the volcanoes together with the sounds of the surrounding "jungle" and the villages below had a very relaxing effect on me.
