Novus Puncak Resort & Spa Reviews
Nice weather Apr 23, 2009
I love Puncak mostly because of the cool air and the greenery view of tea plants all over the place.
Novus Resort and Spa definitely can answer my need for cool air and beautiful views. Additionally, the hotel was very quiet and peaceful.
The hotel is decorated mostly with natural stone. All tiles and some of the walls are covered with these stone. It makes the interior looks so natural combined with green plants and flowers all over the place. The stones can absorb the cool air pretty well thus lowering the temperature in all of the rooms.
It has a square swimming pool, 1/4 of it is for children and a whirlpool if you want to submerge yourself into it and release all of the stress while looking at the beautiful scenery of mount Gede in front of you. Unfortunately, there was no warm water for the swimming pool. I think if you swim under such circumstances, there is a high possibility that you will get sick if you are not used to do that.
The room is okay, nothing to complain. We don't do the breakfast here because it is not included in the price.
Some of the rooms, such as suites have their own heated pool. For those who wants to enjoy more time in the rooms, I think it is better to choose the suites.
If you are old enough, of course this is very subjective :) or not do exercises regularly, probably you will hate the place. The reason is that the hotel area covers a huge space. There are several villas scattered all around the place and one villa contains two or three rooms which the class/rates are above from the standard rooms (I mean these rooms are superiors, deluxe rooms, grand superiors, and suites). If you take one of those, it is a challenge for you to go back and fort to/from the lobby or the restaurant. The contour of this hotel is up and down with many small hills and valleys.
So, my suggestion for that condition is whether you choose the standard rooms which are located in the same building with the lobby and the restaurant, or do some exercises more regularly so you won't experience troubles when trying to reach your own room :)
