For its proximity, Bandung still tops the list as as a favored weekend getaway destination for many Jakartans. The traffic can be a real headache, so we highly recommend picking a clever time to travel ( if you drive, late at night or very early in the morning would be the best time to avoid gridlocks), or try taking the train for a stress free travel, and most importantly, pick a hotel that has everything you need all in one place, such as these ones we’ve picked for you! Here are our recommendations for the best places for a weekend getaway in Bandung:
1. Sheraton Bandung Hotel & Towers
Sheraton is our top pick for any kind of Bandung getaway for its great location (on the last stretch of Dago, unmissable on your way to Lembang), awesome resort style rooms and hotel design, the outdoor lagoon style pool, and family friendly facility and activities. Other than their superb kid’s play area, they also offer all sorts of fun activities for kids during the weekend such as pony riding, free of charge for hotel guests. For the parents or couples, retreat the day at the hotel’s relaxing Shine Spa.

2. Padma Hotel Bandung
We also love Padma’s Hotel Bandung boasts a spectacular hillside. The first thing you will think as you explore the hotel is how lush the surrounding is. And they also offer special activities not only for the kids such as their mini zoo and outdoor ‘hiking’ around the premise, but also outdoor stuff to do for adults. We also love its open air all-day dining restaurant that gives you an unbeatable view of Bandung’s hills.

3. GH Universal Bandung
One of the most visually striking hotels in all of Bandung; GH Universal sports a renaissance style architecture and decor, probably not for a fan minimalist design, that is apparent everywhere you look. But as you get to stay like royalty in its spacious and posh-looking rooms, families with pets will love their Pet Inn, that lets your pooch and kitties not just stay over but also get as much pampering as their little foot pads can handle!

4. The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung
Another popular acommodation in center of Bandung that offers opulent-looking rooms, with panoramic restaurant sweeping views of the city to add its charm. We love the open-air sandy beach pool with sun lounges, the spacious kids club, the elegant day spa and the luxurious room amenities. Although the hotel’s biggest draw would be the Trans Studio Bandung, one of the biggest indoor theme parks in the worlds that offers 20 amazing rides and plenty of stunning world-class show, and also the Trans Studio Mall.

5. Dusun Bambu
Dusun Bambu Family is actually an eco-tourism spot that does not only provide leisure destination but also educational activities. Located at the feet of Mount Burangrang, there are two restaurants you can find here: Purbasari, a sundanese restaurant that lets you dine by the lake, Burangrang restaurant with its eco-friendly yet modern-minimalist design, outbond and kids area, as well as two types of acommodation: Kampung Layung that gives you the atmosphere of staying in a ‘dusun’ or village, yet with hotel facilities, or for an even more ‘outdoor-sy’ experience, stay at the Sayang Heulang camping ground, if you can call it camping! As although you will sleep under a tent, but all of your needs will be attended and no tent-building required!
