Golf Course is lovely and very playable. Situated on the same compound with The Royale Krakatau Hotel, guest enjoys 20% of the green fees for weekdays and 10% off during the weekends.
You can rent clubs and shoes here. However, as with most rental clubs, they suck ! ha ha.... my set came *without* the sandwedge ! hahaha......
Caddies are available. Was told told all male caddies and the female caddies are only available for the weekends, if this helps.
Rough is very deep n thick... so do watch out.
Two very drivable par 4 holes from off the white tees.
Weekdays are very empty and you can literally have the whole golf course to yourself...... except maybe approaching the 3-4pm hours.... some members will be playing.
Last but not least, they have a cafeteria that serves the same menu as the hotel. Food is really nice n reasonable.
Otherwise, a lovely course to just enjoy a round of golf

Cikoneng Lighthouse

Reviewed By Rahadhian - Jakarta

Built in 1885, during Dutch Colonial era, this lighthouse is really a landmark for Anyer. Located at the Anyer shore, with stunning and beautiful view of Sumatra Straits, even you can see Mount of Krakatau when the sky is clear. This place also marks the starting point of 1000 km road of Anyer Panarukan built by Daendels, a very dark history of Dutch Colonialism. Good place to bring your kids, also perfect place to have nice photograph

Great Mosque of Banten

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

Five hundred years ago, Jakarta was little more than a fishing village at Sunda Kelapa Harbour and the big town at the western end of Java was Banten. The Sultan of Banten controlled the Sunda Strait and grew fabulously rich off the Indian Ocean boat trade. At its peak, 1000 Chinese junks a year were sailing to Banten to buy pepper from the Sultan of Banten's extensive pepper plantations. Many of the visitors were from the Middle East and they eventually converted the Banten royal family to Islam. The product of this conversion was the Mesjid Agung of BAnten, with its white walls, atmospheric tombs of former kings and saints and its lighthouse-shaped minaret, which is now an icon of the province of Banten. Make sure you climb to the top for views of the mosque's tiered roof and the low-lying, swampy area generally.

Waras Farm

Reviewed By inkkzz - Jakarta, Indonesia

If you come to Cilegon with your child, this might be 1 activity you can try. You can pick some fruit like dragon fruit or lime and bring it home. You can also make juice or eat the fruit there. It's quite cheap, only Rp. 20K per kilos (less than 2$). But prepare for the mosquitoes there. Bring your own anti mosquitoes spray. They also have restaurant there. Sego pecel is their famous dish. It is consist of rice and vegetables with peanut sauce.

Old Banten

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

At one point, around 500 years ago, Banten was one of the greatest cities of Southeast Asia, with 1000 junks arriving from China every year to buy Bantenese pepper. The Sultan of Banten controlled most of the western end of Java and the southern tip of Sumatra too, giving him control over the strategic and valuable Sunda Strait. All that came to an end with the arrival of European explorers and colonizers. By the 17th century the Dutch had flattened most of Old Banten and established their own entrepot 80 kms away in Jakarta.
So much for the history. Today Banten is a sleepy fishing village and pilgrimage site with an enormous fort, a ruined palace, a beautiful mosque, a Chinese temple and some old tombs and cannons to show for its hundreds of years of history. The Great Mosque with its lighthouse style minaret is the single most impressive site though we also greatly enjoyed the fort. This part of Java is incredibly hot in the middle of the day, so try and make a trip out here early in the morning.

Speelwijk Fortress

Reviewed By Lenok-SB - Moscow, Russia

Голландский форт был построен в 1682 году, имеет квадратную форму с угловыми башнями. Хоть он сейчас сильно разрушен, но всё-равно чувствуется былая мощь. И строили, чувствуется, очень хорошо! Качественно. На крепостной стене сохранилась только одна сторожевая башенка. Но так как много фотографий с ней, кажется, что башенок этих много. За пределами форта сохранилось несколько голландских захоронений. Вход бесплатный, напротив форта есть автомобильная парковка около китайского храма. Внутри форта сейчас футбольная площадка, пасутся козы, тусуется молодёжь, а по самому форту разъезжают внутри на мотоциклах. Поэтому я и говорю, что форт был хорошо построен, если он до сих пор уцелел с таким-то отношением к нему местных жителей.

Karangantu Harbour

Reviewed By Donny H

Karangantu was once a major port and became an important crossing of the world during the time of the Sultanate of Banten. However, the great history is now almost nothing. There is currently only a slum impression and unkempt due to piles of garbage.Karangantu used to be a bustling port in the Banten area. Karangantu is the entrance of ships to Banten area and the second largest port after Sunda Kelapa. At the Port of Karangantu there is a dual fishing boat that travels the tourists to Pulau Tunda. This boat trip takes approximately two hours. Total, the journey from Jakarta to the island of Tunda approximately four hours.

This site is recommended to learn about the history of Serang, but i think this places is still far from comfortable. Long story short, this site DO needs more attention from the government.
