The police said: "Residents were suspicious the snake swallowed the victim, so they killed it, then carried it out of the garden,"
Some 100 residents including the relatives and family of the woman launched a search after the women did not return from her garden Thursday night.
Her sister went looking for her at the plantation where she found her footprints, a torch, slippers and a machete on the ground.
The garden where she went missing is built at the base of a rocky cliff, caves and is known to be home to snakes. Giant pythons, which regularly top six meters, are commonly found in Indonesia and the Philippines.
It was the second python attack on a human in Indonesia since March last year when a 25-year-old man was swallowed whole by a python in West Sulawesi province
