To discover the real, unspoiled East Java means a visit to the town and surroundings of Blitar. Blitar is where most of the remains of
Majapahit Kingdom still stand timeless, including the largest and most beautiful Hindu temple complex in East Java, Candi Penataran. This
nostalgic town portrays the untouched, exotic Java, surrounded by some beautiful, unspoilt beaches, tropical landscape, beautiful rice fields
and countryside sceneries. It also has a romantic flair of the early days of Indonesia; in fact Blitar is where Soekarno, Indonesia’s first
president who proclaimed the independence of this country, was born and buried. Blitar kept its indigenous Javanese character: traditional
market, old town-square ‘Alun-Alun’, and public transports dominated by becaks (old-style tricyclevehicle).

Hotel Tugu Blitar, unprecedentedly the best hotel and restaurant in town and located atthe heart of the city, is housed in a colonial building
that was built in the 1850s, and waspreviously owned by a distinguished family of Blitar. After the second World War, the hotel was called
Hotel Centrum; many years after the name was changed to Hotel Sri Lestari. Hotel Sri Lestari still exists until now as a neighboring hotel to
Hotel Tugu Blitar - both hotels are now one entity called the Tugu - Sri Lestari. Although located in the heart of town, the hotel buildings blend
into a large lawn of lush, hundreds-years-old tropical trees, and are preceded by a long driveway well-shaded by tropical hanging plants.
Being the oldest hotel in Indonesia, the hotel building appears as a beautiful East Javanese mansion from the Dutch colonial times, with giant
white-washed pillars, furniture from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, nostalgic photographs and elegant chandeliers. The
building was carefully renovated to its every detail in the beginning of this century, to preserve its artistic, charismatic, and historical
characters but blending them with modern luxuries. Hotel Tugu Blitar features the Sang Fajar (The Dawn) Suite as a tribute paid to the late first
president and proclamator of independence of Indonesia.
