MesaStila Hotel & Resort Magelang is located in Central Java, Indonesia, which is only 3.5 hours’ away from Singapore (2 hours direct flight to Semarang Airport + 1.5 hours land transfer). Before my departure, everyone was worried that the haze condition will be bad. However, Java is actually located to the South of Sumatra where all the forest fires are and the wind had been blowing northwards. Instead, I was greeted with fresh air, friendly staff from reception to housekeeping and the very well maintained resort amidst the lush greenery. The resort apartment which we stayed in could house up to 4 persons with a basement level, attached toilets and bathtubs at each floor. There is also a small private garden for each apartment.

As the sun set at about 5.30pm, we did not have the time to explore much of the resort. We proceeded for dinner at the Java Red Restaurant situated within the resort where they served nice Indonesian cuisine. As we wanted to witness the flag-off of the 100km race the next morning, we rested soon after dinner on the very comfortable bed!
