Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa, Java

Words like ‘magical’ and ‘mystical’ are too readily used by travel writers. In the context of Plataran Borobudur they barely seem adequate.

Your first impressions, when you arrive at this beautiful resort and spa, tucked away in the heart of a mature teak forest, are of tranquillity and serenity.

Sometimes, first impressions are entirely right. The resort itself, the temple, the mountain standing majestically in the background and the teak forest all conspire together to give you a glimpse of somewhere both magical and mystical.

Plataran Borobudur’s collection of pool or garden villas, a private cabana bungalow and a unique Javanese joglo does nothing to dispel the impression, with their cool style, traditional roots and serene views.

  • I do not think that we have ever had so much care and attention from a travel company, which just goes to show that (in a good way), you do get what you pay for.
