Plataran Borobudur, Indonesia
Within striking distance of Borobudur Temple, with fantastic views across to the temples and surrounding hills and forests, Plataran Borobudur is a gorgeous place to base yourself to explore this region. One and a half hours drive from Jogjakarta airport perched on the edge of the hills of Tanjungan Village, Magean in Central Java, this boutique resort is built in harmony with its surrounds with a traditional Javanese style and a contemporary finish – the use of local timbers, authentic Javanese antiques and a warm friendly local welcome all create a sense of place.
The Villas themselves are all individual and spread over the hillside. The lead in Deluxe Wooden Villas are small and simple, intimate hideaways with double beds, and private gardens overlooking the Menoreh Hills. Step up to the Executive Suites for more than double the space, a slightly more contemporary finish, private pool and views of either the Menoreh Hills or Borobudur. Exclusive Suites have their own dining space and Royal Suites offer their own living space.
The resort has its own pool, spa and gym and dining options all make the most of the amazing views of Borobudur Temple. The Patio Colonial restaurant serves up international favourites and the Patio Jonglo style Stupa Restaurant offers Indonesian Cuisine with a modern twist and gorgeous views over the rice paddy fields, whilst The Kastil offers special Indonesian menu’s on a private dining basis.
The team at Plataran will immerse you in the destination with a daily programme of activities, all specially crafted to interact with the local environment – start with a sunrise breakfast on their private deck with breath-taking views across to the temple, followed by a private yoga session – again with a view. Tour to the temple itself, cycle to local villages, indulge in a spa and simply unwind in the beautiful pool. There is so much to see and do in this region that you could easily fill two or three days.
