Sari Ater Hotel & Resort: Natural Hot Springs in West Java, Indonesia - Indonesia

Sari Ater Hotel & Resort: Natural Hot Springs in West Java, Indonesia

Who doesn’t love natural hot springs? Getting deep into natural hot springs is one way to relax, which was also the main reason I decided to go to Ciater for my recent staycation. Although Ciater is not too far from Bandung, I honestly couldn’t remember the last time I went there before my staycation. But I know Ciater is known to be one of the best natural hot springs in West Java, Indonesia.

I know I had been there a few times when I was a child, and I went there with my girlfriends once when we were at the university, but that was all about it. And that’s also the reason why I decided to book a one-night stay at Sari Ater Hotel and Resort in Ciater.

Top 10 Incredible Volcanoes to Visit in Indonesia

Top 10 Incredible Volcanoes to Visit in Indonesia

I will never stop advocating for people to travel outside Bali when they get a chance to visit Indonesia. Not only because I’m Indonesian, but also because I know that there are so many things Indonesia has to offer when it comes to beautiful nature.

But among many, Indonesia is mainly known for its incredible volcanoes. 13% of the world’s active volcanoes are located in Indonesia, and if you only count by number, Indonesia is on the top 3 countries that has the biggest numbers of volcanoes in the world.

Recently when I was traveling to Serbia, I introduced a Serbian friend to the term “Ring of Fire” because half-jokingly, I told him there’s a bigger chance that I die from natural disaster due to the volcanoes that surround me back home.

So in this post, collaborating with other awesome bloggers, I’ve compiled the list of incredible volcanoes you need to visit in Indonesia. Check this out!

Starlet Hotel Jakarta Airport

Starlet Hotel: A Budget-Friendly Hotel Near Jakarta Airport with Free Shuttle

I wrote about Best Western Premier The Hive the other day, a hotel close to Halim Perdanakusuma airport in Jakarta. And today, I’m going to review a hotel near the airport… But this time, it’s the one that’s located not too far from the main airport in the Greater Jakarta area: Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, all international flights only take place in Jakarta for both departures and arrivals. So if you’re planning to travel internationally to or from Indonesia, you may need some information about a budget-friendly hotel near Jakarta airport.

Since my flight to Dubai the other day was also from Jakarta, and they required a PCR test to travel there, I decided to stay in Jakarta for a couple of days and sort things out there instead of going directly from Bandung as I usually did. And this time, I chose to stay at Starlet Hotel during my stay before the flight.
