A great find for those looking for a traditional lodge

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Nov 2023via mobile
Awesome setting, high above the town with the Borobudur Temple visible off in the distance. The common area and bedrooms have traditional decor. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious. The bedroom includes modern amenities, such as multiple charging ports, a/c and a writing table. For added protection, the bed had mosquitoe netting that did not appear to be needed when we were there. The internet signal was strong throughout the property. There is no tv. The pool was clean and inviting. The facility provides transporation to nearby sites and can arrange transport throughout the region. The staff was warm and accommodating. Food was simple and delicious. They had a well stocked bar and offered a good selection of wine. Caution...the steps from reception to the rooms and pool are steep. This is not the best location for patrons with physical disabilities. On site they have a wonderful vista for sunrise and sunset viewing.

Isolated / lovely views / great staff.
A lovely position on the hillside you are isolated so if your staying at the resort food will come from the restaurant. Prices are good and the staff are brilliant.
The accommodation is looking a little worn, mosquito nets around the bed were damaged and some of the wooden panels in the bedroom area have moved creating gaps to the outside. AC works really well though. Electric kettle to 20 mins to boil which was a bit unusual!!
Resort pool was good but only one sun screen shade and that was a bit old.
Staff organised temple visits and were great
A great place to chill out but could do with an upgrade considering the price of the accommodation.

Villa Borobudur was our second accommodation in Indonesia and it was the one we liked best.
Since we arrived at the parking where our driver and guide left us because no car is allowed on the narrow and steep road to the entrance of the resort , I realised its beauty : Up the hill surrounded by a deep forest in front of the valley where Borobudur temple lies.
The whole resort has an authentic Javanese style : we were in Borobudur suite which we found really charming : large, with a carved Javanese ceiling over the bed and a great attention to details.The bathroom was charming as well.

The suite is on top of the hill completely surrounded by the lush jungle . The only sound was the one of the many birds . From our windows we could see the Borobudur temple : amazing!

We loved the swimming pool facing the valley where the temple is.

We were welcomed by a kind and lovely staff and were offered a very tasting ginger beer !
The sitting area and the bar were two “floors” down our suite and also from there the view was amazing. We dined at the restaurant in an open area always with the same lovely view of the valley and we tasted delicious Javanese food .

Silence, relax , privacy and charm : this is what we were looking for and this is what villa Borobudur gave us .

We stayed in the Villa Kayangan at the very top of the Villa Borobudur hillside. The view was genuinely spectacular and the location was quite extraordinary. It was gorgeous waking up each morning to the prayers wafting across the valley, and seeing the temple in the distance. It was a special experience.

However, as a regular resort traveler, we expected a good deal more for the price of over $930SGD per night in terms of Villa standard, especially in Indonesia, where value for money is very achievable.

The villa is tired, and needs a solid review/clean. The bathrooms came with frogs, huntsman spiders and just outside was a hillside snake. The furniture needs a re-vamp including the soft-furnishings such as the mosquito nets, cushions etc. For example the pool umbrella at the villa was completely broken, and the ones we had substituted were mouldy. The reception/general area was also tired. Odd furnishings, strobe lighting surrounding wooden columns and mis-matched artworks, missed that high-end villa resort feel.

The staff were very friendly, especially the drivers. We had to whatsapp our orders for breakfast/food etc, and that was a little challenging in terms of trying to book and liaise for day events etc. The food offerings were adequate - and breakfast was very well arranged. However, we did go out to other hotels to experience greater food variety and then realised perhaps the standard at our Villa did not compete with the other hotels/villas in the area on offer.

All in all, I would recommend staying elsewhere in Borobudur. But if you are after a stunning view, and are not concerned about the Villa standard for price, then this locale may be for you.

We stayed there as family for 3 nights and must say that the resort has unbeatable view, very nice javanese architecture in a unique set up. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and can help organise any visit in the surroundings at reasonable price. Only downside really is the F&B which only has very local and basic options. Given the price of the rooms and location, we would expect higher standards when it comes to food, starting with breakfast.
