Ijen Resort and Villas
Along a rural, bumpy road you’ll pass beautiful green and lush rice terraces, rolling away into the vista and up the hills, creating a valley so pretty and tranquil you feel like you’ve walked through a secret passage to a hidden world! This is the single road that leads to Ijen Resort & Villas, and the views from this hotel are breathtaking. There’s rainforest, volcanoes, rice terraces and tropical flowers as far as the eye can see. Most rooms in the hotel have a clear unobstructed view of the valley, and the best rooms back directly on to it. The rooms are minimalist in style and comforting with colourful furnishings. The hotel also provides a private dinner suite and a heli-pad for those special occasions.
Ijen Resort & Villas’ location is what really sets it apart, and it is the perfect place if you are looking to trek to the crater of Mount Ijen; the spectacular active volcano with its bright yellow sulphuric ore that burns blue at night, and its turquoise lake of acid. Ijen Resort & Villas is just over an hours’ drive from the summit. For slightly less vigorous tours, there are plenty of hiking and cycling trails in the area that take you into local towns and though rice terraces, where you will see farmers and rice planters at work.
