Central Java Indonesia
by: Editorial Team

Central Java is towards the north coast of Java. Here sits Semarang, the capital of Central Java Province and a thriving port city. Semarang boasts an interesting Chinatown of narrow streets and small alleys, and the Pasar Cina morning market bustles with activity each day.

About two hour’s drive from Semarang, in the lush highlands of Central Java, nestles the beautiful Losari Coffe Plantation – Resort & Spa, the ultimate in luxury and indulgence. Located on a working coffee plantation surrounded by eight volcanoes, Lokasari boasts breathtaking views. Twenty-six villas are dotted about the grounds, each one uniquely designed in traditional Javanese style and featuring one-of-a-kind antique Indonesian furniture.

After spending the day trekking through the surrounding hills, you can relax in the Hamman Turkish bath or enjoy any one of a number of spa treatments. There is also a swimming pool that is fed from an underground stream, tennis and lawn bowling courts, and walking, running and biking trails. There are also no fewer than three gourmet restaurants serving innovative cuisine.

Life on the plantation revolves around the Club House, where guests can gather in the library or on the veranda to sip a cup of Losari’s coffee while magnificent natural surroundings. Truly an experience like no other.

Northeast of Semarang is the town of Kudus , which was founded by a Muslim saint and is now an important place of pilgrimage. The town is also the center of the country’s kretek (clove cigarette) industry, and it is possible how these sweet clove-flavored cigarettes are made.

Lying just northwest of Kudus is the town of Jepara, which is renowned as the home of the best woodcarvers in Java. The town boasts numerous workshops and visitors can purchase excellent examples of cupboards, divans, chests, chairs and tables carved from teak or mahogany.
