Java Accommodations

To assist with planning your trip, we have only created a number of links to of hotels and home stays which have their own websites. This is just a small selection of the places that we usually recommend to our guests, but of course there are many more places to stay overnight. We would be more than happy to show other hotels (which, due to the small scale of their business do not have a website yet) to you once we arrive at our destinations. It’s important to us that you are comfortable and stay at a place of your choice.  As said in the introduction, you might already have found that very special place to stay and we are more than happy to take you there.

Guci Guesthouses A lot of people who visit Java continue on to Bali. We can fully recommend this peaceful Guesthouse in Ubud which is run by a very friendly couple who were introduced to us when we brought guests over there.
