Not only that, Sijori Resort also has essential oil and aromatherapy that vary and will be different every month, so it will give you a different sensation.
Weekend at Sijori Resort and Spa
Last weekend (19/05), our family had the opportunity to visit and stay at Sijori Resort and Spa. It was 2 PM when we arrived at the lobby. The weather was cloudy but it did not lower our excitement to come.
The resort’s lobby is very spacious, modern and nicely decorated. It is so quiet and calming aromatherapy. The lounge has casual seating in every corner. There is one corner at the lobby which caught my attention. There is a table full of spices of ingredients to make herbs, such as ginger, sour turmeric, temulawak and so on.
Once explained by Ami, one of the staff of Sijori Resort and Spa, that corner is dedicated to “Jamu Session”. Jamu is Indonesian traditional herb. This jamu is destined as a welcome drink guests who stay at the resort. Not only that, this jamu also can be enjoyed in the restaurant.
First impressions are great for guests. Not only to drink, in Jamu Session, staff will also explain the efficacy of each herbal medicine to guests and even demonstrated on how to process and mix it, then poof! Become Jamu. Well, that is interesting!
Finished check-in, we headed to our room. Our room is located at the bungalow situated on a hill. We got room number 146, which is a Premiere type room. The location is quite far if taken by foot (plus luggage). But the good news is, Sijori provides buggy car that is ready to lead the guest to the front of the bungalow. Nice! And to be note that, the staffs are friendly.
Premiere Sijori Resort Room
The room we occupied is very spacious. Beside the bed, there is a couch where located next to glass door leading to the balcony with park view. Working desk located in other corner of the room, facing the couch.
For those of us who bring family like us, this room is very comfortable. Children are free and comfortable to play. What I really like is private balcony which overlooking the green garden. Really refreshing. Imagine taking a cup of tea in the afternoon here.
The bathroom is clean, spacious and equipped with bath tub, as well as other toiletries such as soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, towel and hair dryer.
Spa and swimming pool
After tidying up our luggage, we headed to walk around the resort. We passed through the park that led us to the pool which is located downhill. Enjoy the walking here, it is cool and fresh because of the lush trees. This line also serves as a jogging track.
Sparadise SPA is located right in front of the pool. The atmosphere is so relaxed and calm. This spa design is like a villa, feels very cozy outside and inside.
The swimming pool at Sijori Resort is quite large. It has some depth from 30 cm to the deepest is 2.8 meters which has dark color. Even it can be used for diving course, but it is not available at the moment at Sijori. Between the adult pool and the pool of children separated by the pool bar.
Fishing and enjoy your catch
Right beside the pool there is a lake and function as fishing pond. This is quite an attractive facility for the guest, especially if their hobby is fishing. There are several spots destined for fishing around the pond, such as a gazebo and small bridge connecting a small island in the middle of a pond.
Well, interesting fact again that, it turns out the results of fishing can be enjoyed directly at the resort. You can just ask the resort’s help to process your catch with additional fees.
In the middle of the pond there are 2 fish statues that attracted the attention of my two children when playing around the pond. There are also ducks that roam around the pond.
This pond is known to have an area of about 100 square meters and a depth of about 1.5 meters. According to the resort, the fish contained therein are golden fish, pomfret, lohan fish, and catfish. For those who do not bring fishing rods, Sijori Resort also provides fishing rods and bait.
Other than what I mentioned above, there are some other exciting activities at this resort, such as archery, mini golf course and in the future, there will be flying fox. In addition, this resort also grows many kinds of medicinal plants and fruits. They are jackfruit, dragon fruit, turmeric, ginger, and there are other hydroponic plants that can be visited by guests.
Well, unfortunately when we stayed there last week, it’s been rainy all the day so we do not have time to try these activities. Hopefully next time there’s a chance!
