I expected to see roses in the garden, but unluckily I only can saw small amount of roses. It was rainy – days before, so roses can’t blossom. I can imagine how wonderful beautifully that place when all the roses are blooming.

Design the layout of garden flowers in the ROSE GARDEN has two main paths, which is the first major pathway that runs parallel to the main track and the two main paths crossing with first.

The first main track starts from the main entrance of the ROSE GARDEN and end up on the shores of scenic towards the town of Garut and towards Mount Cikuray. The main path to the two lines starting from the foot of the Hill and leads to the crater of Papandayan.

I stayed there for 2 nights, from Thursday to Saturday. I was avoiding weekend, because I need quiet place for resting. When I came on Thursday noon, it was rain, not good weather for outdoor activity, but the day after, it was a sunny day, so I can explored the garden and took many beautiful pictures.

If you don’t have time to stay at night, you still can get inside the garden with the entrance fee IDR 15,000 each person. Kebun Mawar is suitable for all ages, from children to play on the ground, couples for their honeymoon or elderly for relaxing. The view is amazing, the mountain air is fresh, the room is clean and the food is good also.

At night when I sat on the porch, having my dinner while enjoyed breezy wind, there was a cat who always came to me, meows with her soft voice, sat near my feet, waiting something from me to eat. Funny thing, after she was full, she will leaving and never ignored when I called her. She did the same thing the other night, only came for food, not feeling attached, lol…
