Lovely property
This property was wonderful! Clean and lovely rooms and a gorgeous pool. Staff was BEYOND helpful and that made a few issues we had (not hotel related, ATM related) very easy to deal with. We unfortunately could only stay one night, and upon arrival that was something we immediately regretted. We hope to get back to see more of this area and will definitely return to this hotel.

An oasis of peace & tranquility with great service
The Shankar is about a 60-80 min ride from Yogyakarta Aduscipto airport. They will send a car for you by prior arrangement (cost IDR.300,000, about $22, £17). The driver was careful and negotiated the busy roads with skill. On arrival, guests are met with typical Indonesian hospitality, check in is efficient and they show you to your room. Each room/suite, whether poolside or ‘outer tier’, is separated on both sides by a walled terrace. All are located on the ground floor with low step onto the terrace, which leads into a spacious room with a colonial feel but modern conveniences. Rooms are spacious and pleasing, with a comfortable bed, simple but modern bathroom with wet area, good a/c and excellent Wi-fi reception. Staff take a breakfast order each day for the following day, with a choice of western or local dishes. The choice is fairly basic but perfectly adequate. Lunch/dinner dishes are also available, served with soft drinks, ’mocktails’ or local beer. For the more adventurous, there is a restaurant frequented by local people, serving dishes at a fraction of hotel prices, just metres to the right, direction Boro. The pool area is very pleasant and was little used during my visit but appears to be safe for children. Borobudur itself is an easy 10-15 minute stroll from the hotel. They are also happy to arrange tours to Borobudur and other sites. I recommend if you’re planning to visit Prambanan also, that you buy a joint ticket, saving IDR70,000 ($5, £4). I recommend

No hot shower
There is no hot water comes out. I asked the staff to solve this problem but they are not supportive at all. There were many mosquitoes at bathroom and come into bedroom too. I won’t come back this hotel.

We stayed only one night at Shankara Borobudur but it was fantastic - beautifully landscaped, beautifully furnished room and bathroom (!), and tastefully decorated. The food was great and the pool just in front of our room. The location is fantastic for a sunrise Borobudur Temple tour, which we did - fantastic and worth getting up at 4:30am! I do not think you can find a better place so close to the temple.

Treating myself
I went for a solo trip and it’s close to Borobudur temple. I loved swimming and relaxing in the pool area after sightseeing. The room service was good. I think staff should give a heads up on when room service ends at check in. Also, recommend just offering tea and coffee in the lounge area, I know these are available in the room but sometimes to create a social environment and simple pleasure offering something like that would be great.

Nice view of the hotel surrounded by padi fields. Cleanliness is acceptable. However, room maintenance needs to be improved ie. Faulty room lock, poor lighting, poor tv reception
