Oce-an View Residence Hotel

Chilled beachside resort

More on Jepara

After a seaside resort with a chill beach party vibe in Jepara? Oce-an View Residence Hotel sits absolute beachfront, about three kilometres south of the town centre.

Travelfish says:

Modernist stark white double-storey blocks form a U-shape around the sparking deep-royal-blue swimming pool facing the beach and private jetty bar as cool tunes pump it out from the sound system. As with most of the accommodation in Jepara, we feel rooms are a little overpriced, but it’s a decent spot for a relaxing day in the sun.

Tiled air-con rooms are clean, bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows to maximise sea views. Modern styling is comfortable and sleek, however superior rooms and above offer better value than the standard rooms, with added lounge areas and some with full kitchens. Flatscreen TVs with cable, minibar and tea-making facilities are standard. Bathrooms are clean, functional and follow the same chic style.

Chill out on your private terrace or balcony, but we love the palm- and frangipani-fringed, (smallish) decked pool area and beachfront, both peppered with double-sized white rattan padded sun lounges shaded by large umbrellas. As the sunsets, pull up a beach beanbag, or a spot on the jetty, grab a coldie from the bar and enjoy the party.

Oce-an View Residence Hotel includes breakfast in the rate, and an onsite restaurant dishes up Western, Chinese and Indonesian meals. We like the smart, stylish but laid-back atmosphere here, however if the rate is a bit of a stretch for your budget, Jepara Marina, just south along the bay, also offers a chilled beachside vibe and a bunch of water sport activities with rooms starting at 450,000 rupiah.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
