Both the proprietor’s and the location’s reputation upholds Duta Garden Hotel‘s undeniable quality. Being a part of three hotels united in Java-Bali Accommodation, this hotel seeks to achieve an international standard of guest enjoyment. The idyllic setting is one living proof for sure.
A gravel path amidst lush garden escorts a curious visitor to a swimming pool and a dainty fish pond in which a mini waterfall breaks the silence with water stream tinkle. The effect is natural-like tranquility in a perfect paradise; no hawkers, no noisy streets, and no guest crowds encroach upon your siesta by the pool. But if you desire to stray beyond the hotel gate, a flock of tantalizing eateries nestled on Prawirotaman streets awaits for your craving arrival. Descent satisfaction lingers surrounding the hotel for almost twenty-four hours.
Tropical style determines Duta Garden Hotel‘s way of living. Fan cooling system occupies a small number of guestrooms with either single or double beds, which bathroom incorporates both shower and bathtub. Ethical ornaments and wooden chairs also adorn the room interior, complemented with an exquisite garden view.
For first-time Jogja travelers, it may be best to join in a romantic tour provided by Duta Garden staff. The trip comprises a visit to Prambanan Temple, Tamansari Water Castle (where Sultan’s Harems used to take a bath), and Ngasem Bird Market on the first day. The next day breakfast in the in-house poolside dining, catering local, oriental, and continental menus, starts a chain journey to Sultan’s Palace, Borobudur and Mendut Temples, and an ancient Batik Museum.
Delving into Kasongan, Gendang Village to scrutinize accent leather puppet handicrafts and potteries happens on the penultimate day, which ends up with close observance on local batik and wood industry at Krebet Village. A brisk check-out on the fourth day is the romantic tour happy ending, when memorable moments are still resonating in your mind, seeping a secret wish to return back soon to the artisan’s city, especially to Duta Garden Hotel – the dainty yet compelling accommodation.
