Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Plataran Borobudur sits atop Tanjungan Village’s hills, a mere stone’s throw away from the Borobudur temple in central Java.

Rooms at Plataran Borobudur

The villas, which each have a private pool, are designed in a traditional Indonesian style. They are tastefully decorated, spacious and offer complete privacy. In the lounge area and by the pool, you can unwind with a cool drink and take in the sounds of the local prayer calls and the village below. The unobtrusive but attentive staff are on hand at all times.

Food & Drink

The resort prides itself on its unique and ornate charm. The grand dining area is adorned in a traditional Indonesian style with chandeliers, antiques and floral prints. A delicious combination of Indonesian and international cuisine is served in the restaurant and on the patio lounge. Dine on mie goreng for breakfast, a high tea in the afternoon and tiger prawns with herb butter for dinner. 


The stunning spa offers morning yoga classes, massages and huge rose petal-filled baths with vast windows that make the most of the awe-inspiring views. You can spend a restful afternoon by the swimming pool, looking out over the temple.

Activities at Plataran Borobudur

With its proximity to both Borobudur and Prambanan temples, the resort is perfect for those wanting to make the most of the country’s ancient monuments. Getting up early to see the breathtaking sunrise from Borobudur temple is a highlight of a stay here. Take a private tour, or alternatively watch the sun set behind it from the comfort of the resort’s gardens.

A bike ride is a great way of seeing the nearby villages and gaining an insight into the rural Indonesian way of life.
