Volcanoes grace the horizon at Amanjiwo, a place to truly immerse yourself in Javanese culture, with trips and excursions to nearby temples.
Amanjiwo’s main building offers up to 36 suites set within two graceful crescents around the central ‘Rotunda’. The suites feature top quality facilities with terrazzo flooring, high ceilings with domed roofs, as well as sliding glass doors that open up onto a beautiful garden terrace perfect for relaxing in. Each suite comes with a thatched-roof bale, daybeds that allow for outdoor lounging in the sun, or dining, as you take in the scenic views.
Throughout your time at the resort, dining at the Makan Malam – which serves a series of classic Javanese dishes - is definitely a must try. Facilities also include art rooms, spa services, swimming pools and tennis, with the library allowing for unique lectures with Indonesian experts giving talks on the history and culture.
For a spot of culture, why not immerse yourself within the famous Borobudur; seen as one of the best ancient monuments around the world. To make the most of this unique experience, travelling by andong - a traditional horse cart - is an authentic experience that villagers throughout the region use daily. Along with this, there are also several local villages all within walking distance should you want to experience markets and shopping for souvenirs.
