Situated on a serene, 200-year-old coffee estate that produces a superb cup of Java, MesaStila inspires complete relaxation. 55 acres of tropical gardens, plantation and woodland are perched on a hilltop overlooking an awe-inspiring landscape of cloud-topped volcanoes and jungle-clad slopes. The views are genuinely breathtaking.
Within traditional, reconstructed Javan houses, the interiors are spacious and bright with a very contemporary sense of luxury, yet decorated with original features and antiques. All benefit from a private outdoor space and splendid views across the plantation or into the valley beyond. Wellbeing and healthy living are the focus here and there’s a comprehensive range of spa treatments, fitness activities and retreat packages. Enjoy walks in the mountains, herbal massages, homely local food, and plenty of fresh air.
In the cool, coffee-growing hills of Central Java, about an hour’s drive from Borobudur, this classic, spacious hilltop resort is surrounded by manicured gardens and lush wilderness - the ideal escape.

Discover what to expect from staying at MesaStila Resort & Spa
As you ascend into the lush hills of Central Java, you can feel yourself unwinding further with each breath. It’s not surprising that wellness takes centre stage; relaxing into a treatment at the spa is bliss. The resort’s understated luxury and pampering ethos is perfect for when we’re craving a little time out from the intensity of the cities. The cherry on the cake is the view from the infinity pool - it’s one to savour.
Relax by the pool, treat yourself to a massage at the spa, and trek or cycle in the surrounding hills. Take a tour of the coffee plantation, and explore nearby Borobudur temple at your leisure.
We won’t be taking you to each of Indonesia’s 17,500 diverse islands, but this trip will have you exploring four of Indonesia’s islands - Java, Kalimantan, Bali and Komodo. From cruising the jungle waterways of Kalimantan’s rainforest and spotting orangutans, to soaking in the culture in Java to a few days relaxing on Bali and Komodo island - this is a trip full of beautiful contrasts.
