“Magical stay with a magical view”
I have to admit that I really can't stop admiring the magical view of Borobudur temple from the room that they gave me -- especially when they upgraded my room to the Executive Villa with private pool!! :-)
Thank you so much, Plataran! It was absolutely an unforgettable stay for me and my fiance. Looking forward to come back again! :-)
“Closest Thing to Nirvana”
We wanted to be in an idyllic jungle paradise for our second honeymoon and Plataran Borobudur met all our expectations and more! Taking the advice of other travelers, we booked a wooden villa for its romantic charm and economical pricing – it was perfect for the two of us and gave us extra travel dollars to spend on tours and the amazingly beautiful spa featuring a view of the temple from the couple’s spa rooms (my massage there was other worldly). The wooden villas are air-conditioned against the hot/humid afternoons but with lovely outside space for coffee/tea in the early morning or evening.
The resort grounds offer several beautiful and scenic outdoor lounging options and a large pool just off the main colonial patio house where breakfast is included with cook to order ala carte options – so much fresher than a buffet. The Patio House also serves lunch/dinner and there is another Indonesian restaurant option on their convention center grounds just a short golf cart ride away. The staff is attentive and graciously warm and will make arrangements for tour guided day trips to the temples and surrounding kampong (villages) – their local guides are incredible and worth the price for their knowledge of both the site and the surrounding villages. Latif in particular is an amazing spiritual guide for a sunrise visit to Borobudur temple and another guide, Vishnu, arranged for our visit to a batik cottage industry in Maitan village, an easy walk from the resort. We also did a great Indonesian cooking class in the Pavilion with the head chef.
“A Magical Place”
The Plataran is a magical place. With a direct view of Borobudur, our room (a Deluxe wooden villa) was spectacular with all mod cons but meshing with the surrounding tropical gardens. The staff were all wonderful - we recommend the spa.
“A good stay at Plataran”
The grounds of Plataran resort are breathtaking and expansive, situated on a slope with unobstructed view to Borobudur temple (albeit at a distance) and the lush hills around. The multi-level lobby is quite grand, complete with its own elevator and rooftop terrace. There's a dedicated area for horse-riding, a spa, and several dining venues (the main one, Patio, is just across the lobby).
We had the opportunity to stay at this property for 4 nights. We stayed in room 203 and 204 with direct view to Borobudur. The villa is very well equipped and feels comfortable. The team is outstanding and we were looked after very well. I have organized two day tours in advance with the assistance of the team - a sunrise tour to Borobudur and an exploration tour to Yogyakarta. Both tours were impeccable, the tour guides and drivers very good and always adapting to our pace and needs.
The food, Indonesian as well international dishes, at the restaurant was outstanding, We had dinner every night and enjoyed it very much.
A great compliment to the team, everyone was very professional, helpful and friendly. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

One word amazing. Thanks for hospitality. Will comeback with friends. Stay safe & perform for the best!! Thanks. Nanda&Bachtiar – Jakarta
A couple great days spent at very friendly and nice resort. Take the early sunrise wake up and go to Borobudur Temple with a guide – it’s worth it.
Thanks for excellent staff. Olivia & Atte – Helsinki Finlandia
It’s a wonderful view and very great staff.
Have loved staying at Plataran and would recommend it to everyone. I would definitely come back and stay here.
The best feature has been staff. Always so friendly and doing their utmost to make the experience of staying here optimal.
The Spa was equally welcoming.
