Info : Mesastila
Located in the heart of central Java with panoramic views of the eight surrounding volcanic peaks, this working coffee plantation has been converted into a stylish, traditionally Javanese, wellness retreat. The 27 villas are spread throughout lush gardens offering peace, tranquility and a high level of space, privacy and comfort. The comfort of style and scenery create an incredibly relaxing and peaceful environment and the new wellness concept provides guests with the opportunity to reinvigorate and remove the stresses and strains of home.
All of the buildings within the plantation are original to the plantation or are traditional buildings that have been moved in from elsewhere in Java, including the foyer which is a converted train station lobby. This combination of the open, spacious and wood based design that Java is so traditionally famous for and all the necessary modern comforts and luxuries, mean that the villas enhance the laid back and comfortable nature of a stay here. All of the rooms are unique and tastefully furnished. The lead in Plantation Villas are a good size, while the larger Arum Villas provide a day bed and comfortable sitting area and generally better views of the surrounding hills, volcanoes and paddy fields. There is a range of two bedroom Amber Villas that can accommodate two couples or a family and have a variety of configurations to suit both. Finally, there is also the Belle Vista, a collection of five villas that is available for a large group. Each villa has its own space and bathroom and the view from the private garden and pool is superb.
The resort is now pushing its wellness concept and as a result offers a good range of healthy food, much of it grown within the plantation, and a full range of daily activities, including morning yoga sessions, guided runs and a complementary daily 15 minute massage. The rooms are now sold on a full board basis, including all of the scheduled daily activities and an afternoon tea. This means that a stay here is better value than it may first appear. Although a selection of wines are available with dinner, the wellness concept means that alcohol is generally not on offer during your stay.
A real highlight of the plantation is the stunning scenery that it has to offer. The garden is lush and beautifully maintained and the hillside location offers fantastic views of the eight nearby volcanic peaks. The working coffee plantation provides an interesting tour, and good coffee, while the large infinity pool is a great place to spend an afternoon with a book. While a stay at Mesastila is a great option for those looking for a genuine detox and health drive with a range of strenuous activities, it is also a perfect place to relax, unwind and simply recuperate. Highly recommended.
(Note- Mesastila was formerly known as the Losari Coffee Plantation)
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.

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.
