PEACE OF MINE. The past grandeur of Javanese royalty is brought to the present in Hotel Tentrem (Jl. A.M. Sangaji no. 72, Yogyakarta; +62 274 641 5555; hoteltentrem.com).
Presented by the traditional herbal drink company Sido Muncul, this eclectic accommodation is big in size and rich in cultural touches. There is an undisputed Javanese elegance in both the visual aesthetics and the staff’s service, embodying the translation of the name “Tentrem” which means “peace.” While serenity is all yours in each of the 276 guestrooms, hotel guests can soak in cultural encounters after just a few minutes’ walk to Malioboro, Yogyakarta’s celebrated main thoroughfare. Given its five-star characters, this might just be the artsy city’s finest place to spend the night now.
