Experience the unique blend of exotic Javanese culture and five-star luxury at Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta.
Waking up to the iconic Mount Merapi is a sight one can’t easily forget. Located in the scenic outskirts of Yogyakarta, Hyatt Regency is blessed with beautiful panoramic views from every angle. Resting on 22 hectares of land, at a glance Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta looks like a cultural site thanks to its architecture, which pays homage to the celebrated Borobudur Temple. The hotel itself is built around the concept of “Legacy of a Misty Tropical Ruin Village,” an ancient ruin sitting in the midst of a tropical jungle. Guests
are greeted by lush greenery all around the hotel complex, including tropical flowers and palm trees. The richness of Javanese culture is apparent from the moment you arrive, with an open-air passageway with traditional joglo roof leading to a spacious, white-marbled modern lobby with chandelier – every detail evokes a royal sensation. Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta is a seven-storey building with 269 elegant rooms. It is spread out into four wings, providing guests a range of accommodation choices. The north wing contains 51 Regency Club rooms and nine suites (six Junior Suites, two Executive Suites and one Presidential Suite). Garden View rooms are found in the east, west and south wings. Balancing cultural roots with contemporary flair, each room boasts a spacious living room with comfortable sofas, entertainment set, coffee machine and large floor-to-ceiling windows with striking views of the city. Using a natural colour palette, each guestroom/suite exudes an urban ambiance. Bedrooms feature a king-size bed with the finest linen and the softest pillows
to ensure you a good night’s sleep. Beyond is the en-suite bathroom with bathtub, indoor shower and Javanese bath amenities for the ultimate in rejuvenation. We all can agree that rich culture equals a rich culinary scene. Yogyakarta is popular for its distinctive dishes that tempt global travellers. This rich culinary tradition is exquisitely represented at Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta. Beneath the lobby is nestled Kemangi Bistro. The resort’s signature restaurant features an open kitchen concept, where guests can enjoy the fresh aroma, and the delightful presentation by the talented chefs while waiting for their meals. Kemangi Bistro ("kemangi" means basil leaf in Indonesian) also specializes in woodfired pizza that is said to be the best pizza in town! Not to forget, Kemangi Bistro offers Sunday brunch with an extensive buffet of innovative Indonesian and Western dishes. For afternoon tea and light snacks, head over to Paseban Lounge. Located near the lobby, Paseban boasts striking Javanese wood dining sets and an open-air concept that makes it the perfect spot to unwind after a long day.

When a family outing is needed, a village bike tour and andong (traditional horse cart) ride will surely bring smiles to everyone. There is also the Camp Hyatt programme, which welcomes children from ages 3 to 12 and includes various arts and crafts, from mask making, painting and colouring to learning music and history. The ultimate “Javanese Experience” aims to educate children about Javanese culture and history through fun-filled activities. Hyatt Regency is undoubtedly a haven for golfers. The hotel features a nine-hole golf course designed by Fisette Golf Design and landscaped by Tongg, Clark and McCelvey, from Hawaii. The par-30 golf course features six par-3 holes and three par-4 holes and plays 1,835 metres. Each hole has three teeoff areas to accommodate professional, men and women golfers. For an establishment with exuberant greenery, it is not surprising that Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta takes pride in being an eco-friendly hotel. One of their attempts to boost their eco-statement is by celebrating Earth Hour annually, which has been going on for five years since its inception in 2010. Not stopping there, Hyatt Regency also organizes many “go-green” activities, such as City Restoration and Anti-Vandalism Act. Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta provides a special dining experience during Earth Hour, letting guests enjoy an extraordinary performance of the Hanoman Obong Legend of Ramayana Ballet, while savouring delicious Indonesian and Javanese dishes served from traditional "warung-style" stations.
