Rich in Cul­ture

Ho­tel Royal Am­bar­rukmo of­fers a royal Ja­vanese cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence to ev­ery guest who stays there.


he Royal Am­bar­rukmo Yo­gyakarta is one of Yo­gyakarta’s truly his­toric land­marks and a visit here prom­ises to be a unique ex­pe­ri­ence. When you en­ter the lobby, you will see a beau­ti­ful re­lief of a slope of Mount Mer­api on one side of the lobby wall. The Mer­api Slope was made in 1964-1965 of cast stone and ce­ment. It de­picts the dy­namism of life that ex­ists on the slopes of Mount Mer­api in Yo­gyakarta, with all its ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages. At the bot­tom it shows peo­ple’s ac­tiv­i­ties in the fields and at home. Some artists dis­play their tal­ents at work: black­smiths, sculp­ture and batik. A num­ber of women and chil­dren bathe and play in the river. Another cor­ner il­lus­trates some rev­o­lu­tion­ary army guards at their posts. You can also see a lovely mo­saic (near the Royal Restau­rant) which de­pict the peace­ful life of Yo­gyakarta peo­ple in the mid­dle of the last cen­tury.

Royal Am­bar­rukmo Yo­gyakarta cre­ates a range of ac­tiv­i­ties that rep­re­sent Ja­vanese cul­ture, such as a Royal tea cer­e­mony, Royal Din­ner, Royal In-house Tour and oth­ers re­lated to the art and cul­tural com­mu­nity, at Pen­dopo Agung. Ho­tel guests may visit the her­itage mu­seum, lo­cated be­tween the ad­ja­cent shop­ping mall and the ho­tel. Mu­seum Am­bar­rukmo oc­cu­pies the main build­ing of the Royal Res­i­dence, right be­hind the ma­jes­tic Pen­dopo. In the early 19th cen­tury, it was the of­fi­cial res­i­dence of Sri Sul­tan Ha­mengku Bu­wono VII, soon after he ab­di­cated. As a Royal Res­i­dence, it has sev­eral large rooms that are utilised as ex­hi­bi­tion gal­leries to showcase In­done­sian cul­tural legacy. It has been pro­claimed and in­scribed as a Master­piece of Oral and In­tan­gi­ble Her­itage.

Each ho­tel room and suite at Ho­tel Royal Am­bar­rukmo Yo­gyakarta has a spa­cious bal­cony. If you stay here you can choose your view, from ma­jes­tic Mount Mer­api to the beau­ti­fully redesigned pool gar­den. All rooms have been re­mod­elled and are fur­nished in mod­ern-el­e­gant style. The Am­bar­rukmo suites fea­ture a spa­cious bed­room with a sit­ting area, a large bath­room with pre­mium ameni­ties, din­ing area and liv­ing room. Suites also come with but­ler ser­vice.
