Hi, today I want to share my experience in this holiday. I am an introvert and I don’t like to spend my holiday in public areas where there are many people around me. I love to be alone, relax, and release my self.
So I decided to have “staycation,” which means stay in a hotel and enjoy the facilities. For this aim, I choose Aryaduta Lippo Village to spend my one-night staycation.
Aryaduta Hotel is located in Lippo Village and it is beside the Aryaduta Country Club. If you are staying in the hotel, you can enjoy the country club facilities too. It is the advantage if you’re staying in the hotel.
I reserved a room on December 25 until December 26. The check-in time is 2 PM and the check-out time is 12 PM. But if you reserved the hotel by the Aryaduta official website, you can enjoy late check-out until 4 PM (terms and conditions apply).
I arrived at the hotel at 1.30 PM. I thought it wouldn’t be many people queued but I was wrong. I finished check-in at 1.55PM but my room wasn’t ready yet. I waited along one hour until the room is ready. Of course, it made a little inconvenience, but it’s okay for me because it was worth it.
After checked in, I went to Aryaduta Country Club to see the facilities. There are so many facilities there: Swimming Pool, Spa, Whirlpool (Jacuzzi), Sauna, Gym, and a court to do sports like badminton or basketball. Those evening I enjoyed the Jacuzzi and Sauna before had a fine dinner. Before entering the Spa room, we must register ourselves to the operator. We must write our name on the list and exchange our room keys with locker keys and towel. The Spa room was very clean and large. I really enjoyed the Spa Room, especially the Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi’s water was not too clean, but I enjoyed it very much.
After that, I went to the hotel restaurant to had a dinner. There were many choices of restaurant around hotel and country club, but I chose the main restaurant. The main restaurant offered two kinds of menu, the Western and Asian Cuisine or Italian Cuisine. I chose the Italian Cuisine. The price was expensive for me, around 85-300K rupiahs per menu. I ordered two menus, and luckily if we paid with OVO, we got 30% discount!
After dinner, I walked around the hotel and country club. It’s very great view, many trees and plants around the yard. It so much felt like Bali.
Then I went back to hotel room. I would like to show you the picture of my room
My room was a deluxe room. It was the cheapest room among the other (only 600-700K without breakfast), but it was really clean and comfortable. I forgot to take a picture of the bathroom, but the bathroom was very cozy. There were a bathtub and a shower, with water heater too.
The day after, in the morning I went to swimming pool. There was two swimming pool, the first is at the hotel and the second is at the Country Club. I went to the second one because it is wider and more comfortable with the decoration (looks like Bali).
In conclusion, I really enjoyed the staycation at Aryaduta Lippo Village. It was worth the while and worth the price. Would I like to stay again at this place? YES 100%. I recommend not to reserved the room during the holiday season (it’s very crowded). And I also recommend reserving the room by the website so you could have a possibility of late check-out (I checked out at 3 PM that day!) and got 15% discount.
Heres my PROS and CONS for Aryaduta Lippo Villages.
- The complete facilities! It’s a very good point to consider.
- The view and decoration are very natural and relaxing.
- The room is so cozy and clean, and the bathroom has a bathtub.
- The food in the restaurant is very worth the price.
- If you bring children, there are also children playground and children daycare.
- Check in process was very long!! I waited around 1,5 hours (but maybe it was the holiday season).
- It seems like the water is not too clean (I found some insects).
