Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta

Set in 22ha of landscaped tropical gardens with views of Mount Merapi and the adjoining nine-hole golf course, this customer-focused hotel has won the ASEAN Green Hotel Award for 2014–16 and 2018–20, and makes a perfect base for exploring the cultural heart of Java. Your journey starts with a horse-drawn carriage around the resort. Luxurious rooms with oversized windows make the best of the garden or pool views. Kids will enjoy lots of activities such as fishing, glamping, the open-air playground and the inviting swimming pool, which has a 70m water slide ‘hidden’ in the rocks. There’s a 2.5km jogging track, health club with sauna, Jacuzzi, and relaxing spa and salon. Dining takes place at the open-kitchen Kemangi Bistro, which offers Asian and Western delights and has a wood-burning pizza oven. Bogey’s Teras serves up cool drinks and live music, while the Paseban Lounge invites you into comfy chairs for sweet delights and fresh drinks.
