We are very excited to share our short trip at Puncak and staycation at Novus Giri Hotel Puncak. We choose this hotel because of it’s quality and beautiful view surrounding. The journey started when we went to Puncak on Monday morning and head to Novus Giri Resort and Spa directly. Well that’s a weekday but we prefer to choose Monday just to avoid the crowded at Puncak Bogor on the weekend and we made it!
Less than two hours we arrived at Novus Giri Hotel Puncak. The first impression when we arrived here is the place was so calm, cozy with the thick-set trees surrounded. I felt the freshness air that I never found in Jakarta. Novus Giri Hotel Puncak filled with big trees with a hint of Bali atmosphere and the architecture looks very homey.
And when we enter the lobby, we were welcomed warmly by professional staff here. Then we were escorted to the reception desk to be introduced to all room types that suit our requirement. We chose a Pool suite type room because there is private infinity swimming pool with jacuzzi and directly to a spectacular valley view.
Whats On Surrounding!
After we were checked in at Novus Hotel Puncak we decide to go to some place around here while the weather was bright. Let’s see what’s interesting here!

Even though the hotel has been standing since 25 years ago but the structure of the building not outdated not too mention the interior feel modern and in a few type you can find a minimalist modern room design. And our room was also clean, fragrant and so neat. Here is the facilities aside private pool which is quite large overlooking the valley:

The bathroom is also very spacious although there is a bathtub. The toiletries are also very complete. What I like is the soap and shampoo they serve, very fragrant and the aroma is very relaxing.
Especially in the main room is very spacious. Oh yes, although there is no cooling like AC but it’s still comfortable due to cool air surrounded and you will pull the blankets during on the bed.
When the morning come, Oh God! I awe at this place. When I opened the curtains and windows I see the sun rising perfectly behind the mountain and the pool covered by the steam. Song of birds, crickets noises and gurgling water make it more dramatic moment at that time! And now I miss with Novus Giri Resort & Spa.
My favorite activity is enjoying hot coffee and seating there by overlooking the valley with the cold atmosphere.
Talking about the breakfast menu, Novus Giri provides a small buffet located at Bamboo restaurant. But they also provide a la carte menu for its main course like Nasi goreng, Bubur ayam, Danish bread, Croissants etc.
