- I wanted to book the ‘Bukit Villa’ but it turned out to be the building name instead.
- Some of their bigger rooms stated it could accommodate 4 people yet there was only one huge bed in the pictures.
- The price included services which I did not require. It was unclear if I could do away with the additions.
I used the chat function to clarify some things, waited quite a while for a reply which I did get but things were inconclusive. Baffled, I still put in a booking through their website and received a confirmation. I replied to ask if the booking was confirmed and it was followed up via WhatsApp.
Quite a bit of back and forth because the ‘villa’ I wanted wasn’t what it was stated online + there would be additional fees for extra beds. I was honestly exhausted from all the lack of information. But all was good in the end and my booking was successful.

If you have any queries, I suggest getting in-touch directly via WhatsApp.
I find the rooms a bit pricey so I would honestly say it isn’t worth the price. Our bathroom didn’t have a floor mat which was annoying to have the floor wet; only 1 bottle of shampoo/shower gel was provided for 4 people; a used towel was hanging in the bathroom.
However, it is a different type of accommodation to stay in, food prices are affordable and the staff are really helpful and friendly. They also have a strawberry farm and some fringe activities such as the flying fox. None of which we patronised cause we weren’t that interested. I wouldn’t entirely recommend the place but I wouldn’t outrightly tell anyone to avoid the place.
After 1 night in the city, 1 night in South Bandung and 1 night in North Bandung, we headed back in the city for 2 nights before flying back to Singapore. Shan’t go into much details but we spent that time going to Cihampelas Walk and exploring the shopping streets near our hotel.
I got a bad case of food poisoning from having an orange juice and a sweet potato at Carrefour so I highly advise you NOT to eat anything from the stalls inside of Carrefour. I spent a night spewing out food and water through my mouth and butt. It was the day I truly experienced peeing through my butt.
That pretty much wraps up my 6D5N trip in Bandung, Indonesia.
