A retreat to Puncak


(This is a sponsored post)

Puncak? Wow, it was like years ago I went to Puncak!’

This was my friend’s answer, when I asked about Puncak in Bogor.

Then I also thought about that too, when was the last time I went there. Oh, I think it was 2 years ago, when I attended a seminar. It seems, that there is something that I miss about Puncak when I thought about it.

So my next question to my friends was …

What do you miss from Puncak?

Most of my friends said that they miss the food there, such as the famous sate PSK (Pojok Sate Kiloan), a warm drink – such as sekoteng, and even they miss eating Indomie there. ‘What? Really? You can eat Indomie everywhere in the city’ – I said to my friend. Then my friend replied that it’s different eating the hot Indomie at Puncak with its cool weather. Oh, and don’t forget with that warm corn on the cob.

Another answers were about its ambiance and the cool weather of Puncak. Yes, I can agree that a good ambiance and a cool weather are a good recipe for a retreat or an escape from a hectic life in the city.

A nice place for a retreat

I still remember that in the past, I like to go to Puncak with my family for a retreat. Usually there were more than 1 family that went with us. We looked for a place to stay that has a villa with several rooms in it, so it can accommodate all of us in one roof. We can see now that there are plenty of villas in Puncak to choose for, such as the Puncak Pass Resort that not only has regular rooms, but it also has villa or suites that can fit up to 4 guests. The advantage of staying in a villa is we can park our car just beside or in front of the villas. So it felt like we stayed at our own home right. Even this two-bedroom Junior Suite at Puncak Pass Resort also has two bathrooms. Well, imagine if you are traveling in a group and there is only 1 bathroom for all. The one that uses the bathroom doesn’t want to be rushed, while the ones outside the bathrooms don’t want to wait too long for their turn haha.

The view that matters

When we were on a retreat, we want just to relax and has a laid-back life for a moment. Most of the time, a good view from where we stayed does matter too. It would be nice, when we opened the curtain of our room in the morning, then the view of the mountain with a blue sky have already awaited us. I think I could just enjoy this view for a moment, while I am sipping a hot cup of tea from my balcony.

How about the fog? There was one friend who answered that! That never crossed my mind, but it seems that he is excited to see the fog coming down from the hill! Yes, I think it is easy for you to see the fog in Puncak area.

The nearby attractions

I know that when we already stayed in a villa, we should spent most of our day inside the villa to just relax or use the facilities there, or just play some games. But, sometimes we got bored and we just wanted to visit nearby attractions. Some of my friends mentioned about the tea plantation as the thing that they miss from Puncak. Yes, it’s very rare to see the tea plantation in the city. Then I imagined that my friends and I made a video clip on a tea plantation haha. It would be fun, right?!

There is also the famous Taman Safari in Puncak. I remembered that I went there with my office mates for our weekend getaway. We spent the whole day there, and we ended our day with a dinner in one of the restaurants nearby with the view of mountains (well, it was night, so it was dark haha!).

Great, now I miss this place, and it seems I should make a plan going to Puncak soon!

So when was the last time you went to Puncak? 😉

Mixed Up Already

The things that I love are movies, music, and travel. I have an extended family in the movies world, called MoviegoersID, and we love to hang out and watch the movie together. How about music? Well, do you know The Corrs? Yep, they are a very talented family/musician that I deeply love since high school! If you love them, then we might get a long well ;-) . My love to music then grow to Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, The Script, and of course the one and only Anggun. Travel is the love that grows in me very late. At around 2011, I fell in love with travelling, and I tried my best to travel each month since that time. You can contact me at .
