We checked in to Villa Borobudur for 3 nights, the view is spectacular and the resort is very peaceful. The rooms are quite basic for the price but perfectly adequate. We were a bit disappointed that the area by the pool was being renovated and that they didn’t tell us before we arrived. It didn’t stop us using the pool but it impacted the view.

We felt the dining area lacked atmosphere- all meals are served in the same place and take a long time to come because the kitchen is clearly located some distance away. All meals had to be ordered several hours in advance, for breakfast the night before.

We enjoyed a variety of activities that are easy to access from the resort including hiking, visiting the temples, yoga and massage. The cost of the driver seemed to be integrated into the overall cost including the adhoc trips to other places for lunch/dinner- which was much appreciated. We also appreciated the fact that the staff were able to get the rugby World Cup on the TV for us to watch!

Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and the staff were lovely!

Dear Mrs. Rebecca,

Thank you for your positive review and feedback. We regret that your view from your swimming pool, was somewhat impacted by an extension that was made at the time for the terrace of the Taste Java restaurant. As you noticed the project was stopped, to ensure you could fully enjoy your upgrade to Villa Mahayana.
The reason we ask our guests to order their next meals in advance, is because we always use fresh ingredients (like fruits and vegetables) directly from our gardens and the Borobudur market. However, we can always accommodate “last minute” changes to your order. We very much appreciate you enjoyed your stay with us,

Kind Regards,
Yanazil and team

I stayed in the Villa Kayangan for four lovely nights. I loved every moment of it--the peaceful setting high in the Menoreh mountains, the view of volcanoes and Borobudur, the epic sunrises and sunsets. The private pool is gigantic. I found the hums of the calls to prayer from the villages in the valley below enchanting. The staff is kind, friendly, and genuinely wants to ensure you have a lovely trip. You have the privacy of an AirBnB but the amenities of a hotel--room service, housekeeping/turndown service, concierge/someone to help schedule your tours and activities. I think it's the best place to stay in the area and offers an authentic Javanese experience.

Room tip: Villa Kayangan is by far the best. It is at the very top of the resort, has a phenomenal view and lovely pool.

We spent three nights at this beautiful location and it was incredible. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a villa and it was the most beautiful accomodation we have every stayed in. We overlooked the Borobudur Temple and the gorgeous valley. The food and the friendly and helpful staff are excellent. We will always remember our special few days at Villa Borobudur. Thank you!

Together with my girlfriend, I stayed at Villa Borobudur for 3 nights. Where we had a wonderful experience. The location and facilities are of the highest quality. We stayed at one of the private villas "Villa Kayangan" which truly met our (very high) expectations.

From the pick-up at the airport until the drop-off at the airport we felt so relaxed because of the excellent care villa Borobudur has taken of us. During our stay we enjoyed the great authentic Javanese experience which Villa Borobudur offers: the staff, the food (with self-grown herbs & spices!), the interior & exterior, the on-site activities. Villa Borobudur has it all and delivers these experiences in an unforgettable manner. We have seldom been so excited about a hotel as we have been here and we highly recommend this unique place.

I recently stayed at Villa Borobudur, in the Siddharta Suite. The staff, the room and views, it was all truly a fantastic experience.
My time at Borobudur was limited and in 3 days the staff at the hotel accommodated my schedule and was able to help me achieve all the sites I wanted to attend. The food was excellent. I really loved the experience of staying in a Javanese inspired resort. I did visit another resort while I was there, you are remote in Borobudur, so there are not many choices. This felt very authentic to me. The journey to get to the hotel was just as fantastic as the hotel itself.
I would highly recommend this place. It was a great home away from home.

Room tip: I loved the Siddharta Suite. It was not a villa, but there was plenty of privacy.
