Manohara Resort Hotel
A must if you plan to visit Borobudur
My travel-junkie BFF and I stayed here for a night and we loved it, even though we arrived late at the hotel (due to delayed flight and rain) and missed out some of the activities in the temple that we have planned. The hotel can be reached by foot if one alights at Terminal Borobudur, about 15 to 20 minutes walks away.
We booked our room through booking.com for IDR750,000.00/night and we think this is really worth the value, as hotel guests have unlimited entrance to the temple. Guest will get Borobudur Pass, Breakfast Voucher and Audio Visual Voucher after checking in. We were told to watch the video on Borobudur in our room (on channel 27) during our stay as the Audio Visual Room was in used due to some Wesak related function being held at the hotel.
We loved the welcoming drink served – sparkling water with honey and lemongrass stalk as the stirrer. For us the room was huge, but more importantly, it was clean, with good water pressure on the hot and cold shower, not to mentioned that there were both 2-pin and 3-pin plug points in the room.
WIFI only worked for us in the lobby / reception area. There is a small counter selling postcards, photo books and Borobudur souvenirs just in front of Witarka Open Hall and we saw a a Gambang with traditional Javanese dance performance there at night. We loved the in-room picture book as well, it helped us to understand a bit more about the temple. Wished we had more time to read it though.
One thing we did not like was the lock at the main entrance to the room #20 – we had a little trouble closing the door everything we wanted to go out from the room and we never quite worked out how to do it during our whole stay there.
Manohara Sunrise Tour cost IDR230,000/pax and it's really worth waking in up early in the morning for that. Sunrise tour came together with morning tea/coffee and light meal at the coffee shop. The temple can get quite crowded once the sunrise tour was over and non hotel guests started to flood the temple – so cherish the early morning tranquillity you get during the sunrise tour, seeing the sun rising between the 2 great volcano of Merapi and Merbabu was simply magnificent! This alone is worth the visit. For us, this hotel is a must if you plan to visit Candi Borobudur.
