“I’d previously stayed here in 2015 and was aware of their leisure activities programme as the objective for this visit was to climb Mt Semeru (3,676m), the highest point on the Indonesian island of Java.
My colleague and I were warmly welcomed by staff and allocated an upgraded room which was much appreciated. Whilst the heritage hotel is very well laid out with lots of antiques and memorabilia, this would count for nothing if the staff weren’t up to looking after guests to a very high standard. I’ve stayed in many great hotels around the world but the Tugu Malang is included in my top 5 hotels in the world.
The trekking arrrangements were satisfactory but for various reasons we didn’t reach the summit but if we try again we’ll allow for an extra day for this.
The catering here is exceptional with variety and quality spoiling guests for choice.
I can highly recommend this hotel!”
