Resort hotel in Jakarta? hmmmmmm maybe I should think twice about it, but a resort hotel in the Bogor area and Puncak? It turns out that it’s still rare, but I really found a resort hotel in Bogor that I highly recommend, because this hotel adapts from resorts that are usually in Bali which we usually know that the resort definitely doesn’t have a tall building , then have large area, especially lush with various green plants. And this hotel is Novotel Bogor, located inside the Bogor Raya Golf Club, making this hotel have 5 hectares of land, SOOO BIG RIGHT?!
My trip using a private car from Jakarta, the easiest way to reach the location is through the toll road, because when we exit Bogor’s toll gate we immediately take the leftmost lane and from there we will go straight into the complex area, it only takes us five minutes to reach the hotel. In front of the entrance there is a fairly tight guard, and the hotel also has a very large parking area!
Unlike the lobby in ‘city hotel’ in Jakarta, the lobby here is made open space with an authentic design, in the receptionist area I immediately proceeded to check-in by giving my ID and going straight to the room after getting the key. And like a resort hotel in general, because of its widespread form, so if we first time arrived at the hotel it would be confusing because of the extent. but fortunately the Novotel crew helped me to reach my room.
(Deluxe Room = Start from Rp 1.500.000)
So this hotel has 1 building and only have 3 floors with an elongated shape, and for Deluxe and Suite room types are on the 1st floor because only these two room types have a bathtub on the terrace, while Superior room types only have a balcony.
With the Deluxe room type, in my opinion this room is very spacious because it has 46m2 size. What is special in this bedroom area in my opinion is a jumbo-sized sofa (it can even add 1 person to sleep on this sofa hahahaha). And what amazes me with this room is also because the bathtub that fits for 2-4 people in the terrace area, not just the bathtub but there is a long sofa along with a table to relax on this terrace.
THE POOL, GYM, ETC
After being satisfied to photoshoot in the room, I immediately wanted to take a peek at the swimming pool here, the location was not too far away and not to confusing like what I thought before. When I arrived at the swimming pool I felt like I wanted to linger here, especially there is a gazebo for you to relax and enjoy the wind blasting your face, accompanied by the sound of gurgling water and shady trees, it feels as if we are no longer in Bogor! The pool area itself is not too wide but it is indeed made elongated. Well! but 1 thing that I rarely find in hotels in Jabodetabek is the depth of the pool here is quite deep, because I really like swimming while diving in the depths.
What I like from the restaurant area here is having a green view that spoils the eyes, and when breakfast arrives we seem to be eager to eat food in the morning, in terms of menu choices in my opinion is very diverse from Indonesian to western, and for some reason when I found Mie Ayam at the hotel for sure I’m very excited and always like Mie Ayam at every hotel I visit hahahahaha
When you want a staycation but don’t have time for vacation, you can spend your weekend at this hotel! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS HOTEL! because the nuances presented in this hotel are very different from other hotels, but indeed when you stay here it’s better to use the time just to relax at the hotel, because if you don’t have a private vehicle, the hotel is a bit far from the city.
And for your information, this hotel is a cluster hotel with ibis Styles Bogor which is located next to this hotel, so if you stay at ibis Styles Bogor hotel you can also play around to this hotel for swimming! SUPER WOW RIGHT? and you can read my ibis Styles Bogor’s review by clicking here *FYI, This hotel has just upgraded their service, because previously this ibis Styles hotel was a 3-star hotel and now officially become a 4-star hotel, and only at ibis Styles Bogor has officially become a 4-star hotel in Indonesia!
