The resort offers five different types of suites ranging from a basic Studio Suit through to a spacious and very comfortable two bedroom deluxe suite. All rooms offer complete kitchen facilities which we are really taking advantage of, ensuite bathrooms, and cable television with both International and local Indonesian Channels.

The one and two bedroom suites also come with Spa Baths in the main bathroom. Ground floor rooms open out on to the gardens and swimming pool and all rooms on the second through to the top floor have private balconies that offer fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. The Front Office Manager was telling me that the area has been a getaway from Jakarta since the earliest times of the Dutch Occupation and Stamford Raffles actually visited Cipanas at one stage.

Anyway, we are nicely settled in now and the staff has been great. No problems with language as they have multi-lingual staff that speak English, Dutch, Arabic & of course Indonesian.
