Princess Diana and the likes of David Beckham had all stayed there previously and got to enjoy the fabulous view of the famous Borobudur temple from their suites. Sadly we weren’t spending the night at that hotel however we were going to get to see and climb the famous Borobudur Temple the next day. Said to be the la
