GOBSMACKED BY ITS MAGNIFICENT VIEWS! Mar 30, 2007
This resort is an ideal getaway before the trek to Kawa Ijen.It is the best in this area:go there for its LOCATION in the rice terraces and enjoy the SPECTACULAR VIEWS with the ricefields in the foreground and the volcanoes in the background.
Ijen resort provides convenient rooms,restaurant and staff BUT you are not here to enjoy 99 TV channels or foie gras!!Be informed that it doesn't provide ear-plugs( noisy frogs and loud call to pray at 4-5 o'clock!but it's time to get up for the volcano).I really RECOMMEND to stay 2 or 3 nights (if u are not on a budget enjoy the Ijen volcano trek,hike or stroll, gaze at the MAGNIFICENT LANDSCAPE sipping your tea or your Bintang or soak in the large swimming pool!You will get the paradise you always wanted if you have sun!
In the middle of nowhere,the resort is reached by a very rough 3,5 km track ( better use a 4 wheels drive car when it rains and it does often). .
TIP:people may have lunch in the staff canteen for 1 or 2 bucks!!!! and believe me,it's more friendly than eating alone in a rainy day an average expensive food in the
internet rates 2010 :$130-$195 but walking rates are cheaper!
