beautiful property...we felt like royalty
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

we stayed for 2 nights in one of the beautiful;villas....it came with an outdoor dining area...its own pool and an amazing view of Borobudur and the volcano. The service was impeccable....all meals are brought to the villa from an adjacent kitchen...and staff are on hand for the tiniest of requests. On the final morning we had to leave at 5.30am for the airport....the staff still came to serve us breakfast at 5am!!! There were some delicious Indonesian food on offer...you chose from a short menu...but it is no problem to order everything so you can try all of the flavours.

We did not see another guest through our entire stay as we were in our own private paradise! There is an extensive range of trips on offer...we went to a pottery class in a local village, the local market and a volcano.

We booked their java package direct with the property...well worth it as it comes with all meals, soft drinks, a trip to Borobudur, free transfers to the airport and free laundry!....perfect for us as we were midway through a 2 week trip!

Highly recommended

Amazing!

The staff at this hotel really works hard to make the guests happy! We were there during low season and were the only guests, so they upgraded us to a fabulous villa. The food, the view, the pool were all incredible. The staff arranged drivers for us and helped us plan activities. It was great!

Great View

We traveled with a group and we were housed altogether in several villas with great views of Borubudur and the surrounding mountains. The villa we stayed in accommodated three (3) couples. There was a common dining living room in the Villa and we could have our meals served there - very private! The Villa we stayed in had a pool and so did the other Villa where our friends stayed. Each Villa has a dedicated butler who attends to the guests.
Villa Borubudur is near the Borobudur temple about a 15 minute car ride but quite far from the Prambanan temple which is nearer the Jogjakarta airport.

Memorable birthday surprise
Reviewed 3 months ago

Two years ago, for my birthday... my beautiful thoughtful boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Yogyakarta and a weekend stay at the Villa Borobudur. We stayed in the private Menorah villa with pool and empty adjacent villa all to ourselves. I don't think either of us ever got round to writing a review then... But as my bday approaches 2 years on... I'm reminded of the most romantic/memorable weekend anyone has ever gifted/planned for me. ♡ This delightful experience was in no small part made possible by the incredible hospitality by the staff at the Villa, who not only provided a yummy chocolate bday cake after our private dinner on our deck... but thousands of pink and white petals & candles laid out in a giant heart shape with a personalised birthday greeting on the ground for me.  It was simply stunning and ill never forget it!! (Of course I took a million photos of it). The room had gorgeous javanese decor, a stunning mountainous view, comfy bed complete with mosquito net, lovely private pool, delicious food and all accomodating friendly service. The air was crisp and clear and I loved hearing the call to prayer echo throughout the mountains each evening. They'll also take you white water rafting too if you are into adventure sports... which was super fun! For a really memorable escape and celebration with your special someone - Villa Borobudur really delivers. Sorry this is such a late review... hopefully better late than never! Thank you

Nice place but could be improved upon

The best things about Villa Borobudur are the exceptional view of Merapi and Candi Borobudur itself, and the staff, whom we understand are all locals who have been trained up by the owners - they could not have been more friendly, generous and helpful. The rooms are quite unusual and decked out like traditional Joglos - ours had a huge comfortable bed with ornate Javanese carvings. The bathroom boasted an impressive bath tub with and wonderful dragon spout, but the hot water came out in a weak dribble - it would have taken at least three hours to fill the bath to a decent level! We had no choice but to use the similarly dragon spouted shower, which required delicate fine tuning to achieve the right temperature. The toiletries supplied are of poor quality - a minute bar of strange looking soap and nondescript shampoo and conditioner, neither of which were replaced regularly enough.

We stayed for 5 nights which is probably too long. It was Low season and for at least two days we appeared to be the only people dining at the restaurant either for lunch or dinner. And this is one of the problems - the food is perfectly good, but the menu is relatively short and doesn’t change, the items are fairly hit and miss so we ended up sticking to the ones we liked, but then the portions appeared to get smaller and smaller as the days went by. Breakfast was more consistent.

One of the benefits of being virtually alone meant that we got sole use of the lovely Swimming pool below the dining area, although for the last couple of days we had to drag our own cushions and towels from the deck at one end of the pool.

The visit to the temple is impressive and well worth the trip, but there aren’t any decent restaurants to explore in the area. We had dinner at the Patio at the Plataran Hotel one night which was very disappointing- don’t bother! And also tried the restaurant at the Amanjiwo Hotel, ridiculously expensive and also sub-standard.

We would love to come back one day but will probably combine with a few days in Yogyakarta as well.
