Certificate of Excellence
Hotel Tugu Blitar, unprecedentedly the best hotel and restaurant in Blitar, East Java, is housed in a colonial building that was built in the 1850s, and was previously owned by a distinguished family of Blitar. After the second World War, the hotel was called Hotel Centrum; many years after the name was changed to Hotel Sri Lestari – and later become Tugu - Sri Lestari. Being the oldest hotel in Indonesia, the hotel building appears as a beautiful East Javanese mansion from the Dutch colonial times, with giant white-washed pillars, furniture from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, nostalgic photographs and elegant chandeliers. The building was carefully renovated to its every detail in the beginning of this century, to preserve its artistic, charismatic, and historical characters but blending them with modern luxuries. To discover the real, unspoiled East Java means a visit to the town and surroundings of Blitar. Blitar is where most of the remains of Majapahit Kingdom still stand timeless, including the largest and most beautiful Hindu temple complex in East Java, Candi Penataran. This nostalgic town portrays the untouched, exotic Java, surrounded by some beautiful, unspoilt beaches, tropical landscape, beautiful rice fields and countryside sceneries. It also has a romantic flair of the early days of Indonesia; in fact Blitar is where Soekarno, Indonesia’s first president who proclaimed the independence of this country, was born and buried.

Stayed for 5 nights, enjoyed the hospitality and the ambience. Beautiful heritage hotel with history. The standard room gives a vintage look with tube TV set. The same thing to the bathroom. The room looks well maintained but it could be better. Very quiet, good privacy. Nice

Try a basic one-hour Traditional body massage as a starter/tester. Delightful middle-aged woman is the spa manageress/masseuse. A freelance middle-aged man can be called in if you are a man and prefer a masseur. The non-basic rates provide scented oils/creams and baths. The spa construction and its artworks and antiques are fine bonus pleasures.
