Amata Borobudur , Borobudur Indonesia, Java
A short distance away from the stunning Borobudur Temple in Java, the Amata Borobudur hotel provides a characterful base for families and couples to explore.
The creatively designed bungalows, with private balconies or terraces and an abundance of space to relax in, mean Amata Borobudur is the perfect place to unwind; a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city. A peaceful stay is at the heart of this hotels ethos and the onsite spa and daily meditation classes are a testament to this.
The three room categories are well-appointed and very comfortable, with a traditional Indonesian feel. The bathrooms are well-designed with a skylight and rainshower.
Amata Borobudur is set amongst the beautiful paddy fields and the landscape of the valley. You can arrange to rent bikes or a traditional Andong or horse cart to give you a tour of the surrounding area. If you are seeking adventure, you can also book rafting trips from this hotel as well. The main draw, however, is the proximity to the Borobudur Temple, a sight that cannot be missed. After a day of exploring however, families in particular are sure to enjoy the hotel pool with its children's swimming area alongside.
Amata Borobudur is around 90 minutes from the main city but, with the free shuttles to and from the hotel and the tranquility of this location at night, this won’t seem like a drawback.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
