Special Mention: Historic Fusion of Dutch and Java – The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta
You will be hard pressed to find a bad review of The Phoenix Hotel, which is why this list simply had to include this invaluable 5-star gem that’s worth every cent splurged.

The heritage hotel is located in the first class area of downtown Yogya, far from city commotion but still within walking distance to Malioboro. Borobudur and Prambanan are also within easy reach from it.
The exclusivity of the area is enhanced further by the hotel’s combination of refined classic settings with cultured Javanese values. Elegant atriums and courtyards are accompanied by the soothing sounds of gamelan, while the fragrant spa and swimming pool are alive with atmospheric lighting.
Its epic journey from changing hands has seen consistent upgrades and upkeep that carry significant historic value for almost a century now.
Persisting through age and changing eras, the Phoenix Yogyakarta Hotel will forever be a part of Yogyakarta’s long love affair.
