Banaran 9 resort and cottage is a one stop family hotel. They have big coffee farm and some recreation facilities such as flying fox, ATV, playground, etc.
Unfortunatelly when I came here, there were no ready staff to guide you in those facilities. But luckily I can enjoying farm trip to coffee farm by paying IDR 100k/train. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
This hotel is surroundes by coffee farm and any others fruit farm like durian, orange, rambutan. When you open your room, you will see a lot of fruit tree and an amazing view : ungaran mountain.
I stayed at Camelia (Executive Suite Villa) which consist of 2 bedrooms, livingroom, diningroom, terrace, and 2 bathrooms. The villa is big and just like ordinary house. You will feel that you are staying at home.
The 1st bedroom (double bed) is in the 2nd floor (or ground floor?) and the bathroom is inside there. It has television in the 1st bedroom.
The 2nd bathroom is in the 1st floor (or basement floor?) and the bathroom is right outside there. No television here, but yoi can watch it in the livingroom which next to the 2nd bedroom.
It just like a little bit old hotel with wood furniture. The towel need to be renewed because the colour change into grey.
You can capture beautiful landscape next to the lobby because there is some spots to take a picture.
Overall I recommend this hotel if you stay with big number of family. And if you want to stay in a hotel which close to the toll road, it will be the right choice.
It has a great view to the mountain and rawa pening. Located in Kampoeng Kopi Banaran, made it easy to find good meals. However, the breakfast was poor. Only fried rice and noodles. The room is not clean and has old style
It is rather shocking to see the good reviews about this place, even though I see the reviews are over one year old now; if these are a true reflection of the place in 2016/7 then something has gone shockingly wrong in the past year… Sure, the location is brilliant, the number of fruit trees in the area is outstanding, and the beauty of the views are magnificent, but that is where it all ends!
The reception areas is nice enough, if you ignore the bare fluorescent lamps, the piped Mtv music, the sign asking for Rpe10000 to use a flimsily built platform for taking a selfie with the lake in the background and the dismal, seemingly abandoned coffee bar!
Cut then to the room, a villa with space for 4 guest on a split level with a balcony on the edge of a myriad of trees… But..!!! Window ledges covered in dead flies and a dead wasp or two, woefully inadequate AC, soap scum in the shower and, please bear with me, if you need to take toilet paper whilst, well you know what, you had better be a skilled contortionist… In addition to this, the walls certainly need repainting. For a place built in such an environment, I was also shocked to note that their “golf buggies” are not battery but petrol powered…!!
Breakfast was adequate though I must say that for a place built up around a coffee plantation, the coffee was nothing spectacular!!
I could write more, but it is hardly worth my time. This place is shockingly mismanaged, the staff seemingly unsupervised, housekeeping atrocious and the place seems in decline… I cannot, in good conscience, recommend it
