Plataran
Borobudur, Java

Visiting Borobudur is always a special moment of any trip to Indonesia, but being able to see it from your breakfast table and your bedroom elevates the experience to another level. Plataran is one of only two hotels that overlook the Buddhist temple, which is a huge draw! Not only does it have breathtaking views, but the hotel itself offers great service and uniquely decorated rooms. Located on the hills of Tanjungan Village, Magelang in Central Java, it is an easy 5 minute drive to Borobudur temple and is approximately one and a half hours from Yogyakarta. Each of the Villas and Cabanas have been designed in a natural way with each room differing from the next, and all are very spacious. Our personal favourites are the Pool Villas and the Grand Pool Villa that have views of the temples, the rest have views of the surrounding Menoreh hills and the lush teak forests. There is a main restaurant in an old colonial styled house where all of the meals are served or you can eat in your room. The restaurant overlooks the swimming pool which has partial Borobudur views. The Padma Spa is a triumph with a wide range of treatments and each treatment room, decorated in local cultural décor, has views of Borobudur. They also have a very basic gym.

Client Testimonials

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
