Special hotel recommendation
You should not miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in Java’s diverse culture. There are plenty of cooking classes that will teach you mouth-watering Indonesian recipes.
There are numerous museums and temples in walking distance from the resort which are worth visiting. Samudraraksa Museum, Diponegoro Museum, Museum Sasana Wiratama, Yogya Kembali Monument are not to be missed by history and art lovers.
With the Borobudur Temple as the world’s largest Buddhist temple located so close by, it would be a shame not to visit this ancient 12th century Buddhist temple.

Nature lovers can enjoy the beautiful tropical views by either trekking or cycling.
The Plataran Borobudur resort is a quiet escape amid the natural landscape of Java. It’s a great place for travellers, where you can experience luxury and comfort amid the serenity of a tropical garden and the ambience of the mythical local temples.
