Average time to visit
Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – wet and dry – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Indonesia at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
To start planning your holiday to Phoenix Yogyakarta
The Pheonix Yogyakarta is colonial style city hotel in the heart of the city. It is a great base for exploring the city as the rooms are comfortable and there is a fabulous pool, so you can easily escape the bustling city.
The Phoenix is an oasis of calm and tranquility right in the heart of bustling Yogyakarta. The hotel is an old colonial building combining European and Asian influence creating a sophisticated elegance of a bygone time.
The large pool is situated in the courtyard of the old wing with balconies looking down onto it and deck chairs dotted around, really nice for those who would like a swim after returning from Marliboro laden with shopping.
There are 143 rooms in total split between the old wing and the new wing, there are various options with different facilities and views. The two restaurants are both designated for the different buildings and guests can sit down for a delicious Indonesian meal.
This hotel is a great hub for those that would like to be city based while enjoying the surrounding countryside with its temples, volcanoes and castles during the day.
The Phoenix has 143 rooms, some situated in the original 1918 building and others in the new wing surrounding the pool.
No child care facilities but cots are available.
The hotel has two restaurants, Paprika Restaurant & 1918's Terrace. Both have a varied menu, serving both Indonesian and Western cuisine. Vino Bar has a good selection of wine and live jazz and a daily Happy Hour from 5-7PM. There is a also a relaxing outdoor pool, well equipped gym and small spa.
The hotel offers a yoga class every Wednesday and a Jamu (traditional herbal drink) making class every Thursday. Yogyakarta also has plenty on offer, visit the nearby Sultan's Palace or head further afield to Prambanan or Borobudur Temples.

The Phoenix is a charming hotel, within walking distance from the popular Maliboro Street. It is a great place to stay, and the pool area is a nice retreat after a day of sightseeing. The rooms are a little small, so for more space a Suite would be a good option. Whilst in Yogyakarta, I would definitely recommend spending an evening at the Ramayana Ballet.
