Yes, you can see the stupa at Borobudur from most of the public areas (and the grandest rooms). You look across wooded countryside, which gives a magical impression. Our paddy cabana was charming, though lacking surfaces on which to put things, and felt very private. You feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere, but the countryside is actually full of activity (we were awoken by the muezzin, and then by a cockerel). The food is very good, and the service absolutely charming. Afternoon tea on the terrace was very indulgent. The pool was very nice. I would strongly recommend taking the opportunity to use the hotel's bikes to cycle around the neighbourhood, as the back roads have virtually no traffic, and are pretty flat and well-surfaced. The bikes are pretty well-maintained (we rode Specialized mountain bikes, but there are a couple of old-fashioned bikes as well) and the staff are very helpful, and make sure everything is properly adjusted for you. They give you a map of the area, but it's very relaxing just to pedal around, and you get some magnificent views of the stupa.
