True Heart of Java

Experience the real Java - quiet villages and vast volcanic craters, sweeping rice terraces and pristine white beaches - and charming people.

Recover from the stress of city living - or explore the magnificent landscapes and fascinating culture of Java.

Stay in a comfortable chalet, a simple village homestay or a magnificent Palladian mansion - there's something for everyone!
In Kaliandra's hill air, on the slopes of Mount Arjuna, you're far above the hot and busy plains - yet only an hour or two from the airports at Surabaya and Malang.

There are three styles of accommodation to choose from: Javanese-style cottages at Bharatapura, lodges at Hastinapura set amidst gardens ‚Äď or the secluded luxury of the Villa Leduk. There are two restaurants.

Our accommodation lies in woodland and gardens. In nearby villages are homestays where you can stay with a family and experience true Javanese hospitality.

Calendar of Events

There's a wealth of events in our local villages, for example cultural festivals including gamelan and wayang kulit (shadow puppet) performances to celebrate important dates in the Javanese calendar or ceremonies such as blessing the springs.
