Experience the Legacy of Shailendra Dynasty at Borobudur's Sky Sanctuary

Nestled in the heart of Central Java, amidst the whispers of ancient legends and the echoes of a regal past, emerges a new iconic destination poised to weave together history, luxury, and modernity. Welcome to a realm where Bukit Menoreh's mystical hill sets the stage, echoing the tales of the illustrious Shailendra Dynasty.

Bringing to Life the Epitome of Grandeur

Plataran Shailendra Borobudur embodies the Borobudur's grandeur, echoing the essence of the Shailendra dynasty through its materials, intricate carvings, and narratives of prosperity, encapsulating the essence of "Gemah Ripah Loh Jinawi" - a haven of safety, peace, and fertility. The name 'Shailendra' itself, derived from Sanskrit, translates to 'king of mountains,' a fitting homage to its lofty perch atop Menoreh Hill at 400 meters above sea level. Menoreh Hill, serving as a sanctuary, was pivotal in the Shailendra Dynasty's aspirations and, embraced by panoramic vistas, inspired Gunadarma, the architect of Borobudur Temple in 778 AD, to envision its majestic design. Hence, Plataran Shailendra Borobudur offers an unparalleled spectacle of the Shailendra Dynasty's legacy. From this vantage point, guests are treated not only to the awe-inspiring sight of Borobudur Temple but also to the panoramic beauty of the Plataran Borobudur, presenting a dual perspective of ancient heritage and contemporary magnificence.

Embracing Culture Beyond Destination

At Plataran Shailendra Borobudur, the reliefs adorning the entrance vividly depict the esteemed guests of the Shailendra Dynasty, arriving in horsedrawn carriages to meet King Samaratungga and Empress Dewi Tara. Beyond mere depictions, these reliefs breathe life into the celebration of bounty harvests through vibrant artistic events, embodying the essence of communal joy and gratitude. Here, guests are not merely visitors but revered like royalty, indulging in local delicacies crafted from regional produce while being enthralled by captivating traditional arts performances that echo the cultural richness of the region. The intricately designed reliefs extend beyond aesthetic beauty, encapsulating the harmony and balance of existence, emphasizing the values of peace, mutual cooperation, and cultural heritage. Each portrayal, including the water fountain barrel inspired by temple reliefs, serves as a testament to the sanctity of life's balance and the celebration of shared prosperity. Plataran Shailendra Borobudur transcends the conventional notion of a destination, inviting guests to immerse themselves in a cultural tapestry that intertwines history, celebration, and the essence of community spirit.

Authentic Indonesian Hospitality Redefined

The new destination offers diverse facilities, including the Khatulistiwa Lounge that provides panoramic views of sunrise to sunset, the Borobudur Temple, agricultural expanses, and six prominent mountains: Sumbing, Tidar, Andong, Telomoyo, Merbabu, and Merapi. Here, guests are welcomed with the symbolic Dewi Tara drink, representing the independence of the soul and success in life. Additionally, the Askara Venue on the first floor caters to various events like weddings, meetings, and exhibitions, featuring an infinity pool overlooking astounding sights. The venue includes intimate Rama and Shinta rooms, an international standard kitchen, and an Upper Deck ideal for afternoon tea or pre-dinner gatherings. Meanwhile, Anarta Shailendra, resembling a stupa, hosts performances and banquets, complemented by a bar and a rooftop area offering unparalleled views. Amidst these features, the experienced Plataran team ensures impeccable service, aiming to create an unforgettable experience for every guest
