Wish it was Longer

We stayed just one night at the Amata resort in order to view Borobudur. We really regretted not having a second night just to enjoy our lovely room and the nice ambience at the Amata. We staff was attentive and friendly. The food was good and artistically presented; kudos to the chef. And I found they helped with car hire and didn’t gouge the price like hotels often do. I wish we’d been able to stay another day and just hang around the pool. It’s a small resort so you will feel pampered. Although we were not right by Borobudur this didn’t seem a disadvantage. We walked there the first night just to have a look from afar. They provided a free shuttle the next morning for us to join the sunrise tour.

I highly recommend AMATA Borobudur. The staff is so genuinely friendly and helpful ( although Emglish can be limited).
The rooms are immaculate, large bungalows and are filled with snacks and other nice amenities. Large and elegant bathrooms.
The pool is a wonderful retreat.
The restaurant is a delightful surprise with really excellent food which is beautifully presented. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner for 2 days, ordering both Indonesian and Western food and it was all delicious and artistically served.
Amata provides free transfer to Borobudur for sunrise ( an absolute must) and for a small fee you can arrange a “tour” around the villages later that day. The village tour includes learning to make pottery, batik and seeing a Tofu factory.. all very local and authentuc.
We had a wonderful time at AMATA… it was all good.
What can be better ?

This boutique resort is a quite peace of paradise very close to Borobudur.
The room is a combination of modernity, tradition and comfort. It is just beautiful with every single detail well thought.
The restaurant offers a great choice of local and international food for very reasonable price. The food is tasty and well presented, no mistake there.
The rest of the resort is just a mix of tradition and luxury. And so quiet. Not a lot of villas in the resort so we happened to be the only ones in the swimming pool when we visited.
But the best part of the resort is definitely its staff. At the restaurant, the reception, the driver, every single person we met was incredibly kind and dedicated. We are used to travel a lot with my family, even in Asia where the service is always at the top, but here was definitely way above any expectation we could have. We couldn’t be more grateful to the girls there and the entire staff.
I can only strongly recommend as you understood, no downside for this hotel, and I will definitely come back myself the next time I come to Central Java.
Thanks again and congrats to all the staff !!!!
