Check rates and availability
Great location five minutes away from the airport. Beautiful gardens, lovely pool, you can walk around and admire sculptures of mermaids, frogs, traditional folk, carvings and fountains etc... The spa is also fantastic and apparently frequented by top Indonesian and Malaysian artistes e.g. Kris Dayanti, Siti Nurhaliza (who apparently went for the full 6-hour she-bang treatments!). I also spotted other international stars in the Guest Book. The rooms are very homely and cosy. Plenty of choice in the breakfast buffet.
Unique Quality: Great to wake up in full view of Mount Merapi, how's that for a unique landscape, not often you get to sleep so near to an active volcano! The warning system they have in place on the island of Java is apparently one of the best in the world, so guests should pretty much rest easy about it... although on the last morning I was woken up by an almighty bang which made me wonder whether it WAS Mount Merapi giving a little spurt... at breakfast that morning there was a bigger puff of smoke at the mouth of the volcano instead of the usual stream that we see the rest of the time... hmmm...
Directions: Five minutes away from the airport.
The Pool At The Sheraton Mustika
Just to show a photo of the pool at the hotel.
Unique Quality: See the active volcano Mount Merapi in the background! Lovely.
Worth the trip
We booked our room at the Sheraton Mustika Yogyakarta before we left home. We were able to get a very good price of $50 a night.
We were not disappointed at all. We had a king size bed, entertainment system , comfortable sitting area, and a mini bar.
There was a small balcony and we had a view out over the trees and the pool.
Unique Quality: Unique Qualities: The pool was beautiful, the prettiest one I have ever seen.
From the hotel dining room we could see views of fire mountain.
My stay here was FABULOUS! It's only 5-10 minutes away from Yogya airport and it has its own compound. Though it is by the airport road, the hotel itself is far away from it (you go through a long gate/road with some security.) It's an interesting hotel because the lobby is on the top floor (7th floor). Rooms are located on the 1st to 6th floors. I felt that the prices here were more reasonable than other places. The pool is a must-see and so are the desserts and coffeeshop area.
Unique Quality: This resort has 2 pools: an indoor and outdoor pool. The indoor pool is part of the spa and no cameras allowed. :( However, the indoor pool is an exact replica of the pool of one of the sites in Yogya (I think it was the kraton... not sure.) I'm not a big spa person, but if I had the time and energy, I would have gone there and checked it out. Definitely go to the pool!!! I really feel that this hotel is very family friendly and most of its facilities are kid-friendly. In fact, alot of the guests here were either couples or families. The receptionists and other staff members speak very good English.
Try to ask for the Mt. Merapi/pool view. It's only an extra $5USD (50,000Rp) per night from the standard garden view room.
Definitely bring a swimsuit!
The yummy desserts cost 15000Rp ($1.50 USD) a piece.
Directions: Only 5-10 minutes from the airport. Don't worry, I didn't hear any of the planes while I was there.
nice but lacking in the breakfast buffet category
I look for four things when I stay at a hotel:
1)is there a (breakfast) buffet
2)how are the door locks
4)air conditioner...does it work
1)the buffet was lacking in variety and taste, but I did enjoy a couple of plates
2)card key and a latch
3)nice bathroom, good sized shower
4)a/c worked quite well
Unique Quality: the pool looked very nice but the water was too cool for me
always nice going for an 8:30 am swim
Directions: along the main road that doesn't go downtown (in other words, I think it's perpendicular to Jalan Malioboro)
Best for Honeymoon
Great for honeymoon.
Unique Quality: 5-star hotel with unique Javanese ambiance. Great swimming pool and beautiful views of Mount Merapi.
Directions: near to Airport
SHERATON MUSTIKA YOGYAKARTA
Sheraton Mustika Yogyakarta Resort and Spa is a 5-star vacation spot with a unique Javanese ambiance.
Unique Quality: The Sheraton Mustika Yogyakarta Resort and Spa is situated in five hectares of delightful tropical gardens, with Merapi volcano as the backdrop and has an impressive range of facilities including the outstanding Royal Heritage Spa with special Javanese facials, body peeling, herbal treatments, and spa baths.
Best price to value
I booked this hotel at the website of Starwood hotels at 410,000 IDR/night including breakast.
Staffs are very friendly and responsive. Interiors are well decorated with Javanese atmosphere. Facilities are not bad. As for the restaurent, however, you will have only one choice. Service directory of this hotel says that there are two restaurents. But one of them was closed when I visited.
Directions: Nearby the airport. Complimentary airport transfer is available.
More about Sheraton Mustika Yogyakarta
Sheraton, by its name signifies luxury and this Hotel is no different although the rooms have now aged and in need of a makeover.
The amenities and service are what you'd expect from a 5 star establishment but really a good makeover to bring the facilities up to mark.
Breakfast is varied and for the night hawks, the night spot Hugo's is by the entrance of the Hotel, about a kilometer walk but the Hotel provides free shuttle to and fro. Free shuttle is also provided to the airport which is within close proximity - about 5 minutes ride away.
To the Malioboro area is quite far - reckon about 10 km. The entrance is very grand and sited at the highest level - 7th floor so as you driving up to the lobby give you a sense its grandness.
Rooms are therefore below the lobby; 6th floor downwards which make a change from most normal Hotels.
