We stayed 2 nights here in a deluxe room. Car transfer was pre-arranged and very smooth. We’d asked for a baby bed and were amazed that the baby bed we received was fancier than the one our son sleeps in at home. Food and high tea at the Rooftop restaurant and attached downstairs location was fantastic. We didn’t particularly care for food from the onsite Indonesian speciality restaurant but maybe that was a taste and preference thing. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and veggo friendly.
Their hospitality was top notch and it was service with a smile at every instance. Special mention to Ibu Anni in particular was so helpful and helped arrange our tours and gave us loads of helpful tips. We had organised a car service through someone else to take us back to Yogyakarta but on the night before our departure they called to check if we had transportation sorted or if we needed Ang assistance. That was a very nice and thoughtful touch.
Highly recommend for young families as they have a deer zoo where kids can feed the animals. It’s a new property so everything is quite clean and sparkly still. Lovely pool with plenty of sun. Gorgeous views of the rice fields from our room. Baby and toddler friendly. Impeccable service and hospitality. I’d give it 5 stars if I could.
Our visit got off to a rocky start when we were stranded at the airport for 1.5 hrs waiting for our arranged transfer. It was difficult to contact the hotel. Finally a worker at customer service was able to contact them and due to a ‘miscommunication’ they had not sent a driver to pick us up.
However, they quickly arranged for
a reliable taxi to pick us up. When we arrived at the hotel, the manager apologized and did not make us pay for the transfer. This is my only complaint! For the rest of our stay the entire hotel was the most friendly, most courteous, and most helpful I’ve come across in my years of travel. The hotel and room was sparkling clean. The rooftop bar serving snacks and drinks daily at tea time was great. The breakfast selection was plentiful with a variety of food choices. We did a couple excursions through the hotel, which we thoroughly enjoyed, including renting bicycles for the afternoon. The manager went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Again, we got off to a rocky start, but I wouldn’t hesitate staying here again. It is evident the hotel staff pride themselves on sincerely pleasing their customers.
