Amanjiwo, Central Java
Indonesia, Java

Info : Amanjiwo

Amanjiwo is one of our favourite properties, not just in Indonesia but across all the countries that we cover. Not only does it come with the luxurious comforts and impeccable service that you would expect from an Aman property, it also provides one of the finest settings imaginable and easy access to Borobudur, one of South East Asia’s great monuments.

The fantastic design means that the property not only fits in with, but also enhances, the wonderful surroundings and nearby Borobudur temple. Situated half way up a hill, the circular central lobby has a sight line from the driveway directly to the magnificent Borobudur temple 2.5 km away, making it one of the first things that you notice as your car approaches the hotel. From the lobby the hotel climbs down the hill and overlooks a flat plane with a combination of paddy fields and wooded areas, there is lush green as far as the eye can see. This is only interrupted by the temple and four huge volcanic peaks that tower over the horizon, including the still active Agung Merapi and its constant plume of smoke.

Although the real selling point to the hotel is its location and setting, the 36 suites that surround the central lobby, all have the usual Aman combination of unpretentious luxury, local style, space and privacy. They all follow the same design, with a large outdoor area to enjoy the view (some of these have private pools) and simply but stylishly furnished rooms and modern bathrooms. The suites are split into those with views of the Menoreh hills and farmland and those with views of Borobudur and the surrounding forested plain.

The hotel is very conveniently located for a visit to Borobudur, particularly as it is best to climb the temple in time for sunrise! After the morning excursion however the restaurant by the 40m blue pool is a truly fantastic setting from which to have breakfast. Located below all the rooms it looks directly out over Borobudur, the volcanoes, the forests and the paddy fields, with the hills behind dominating the background. It really does not get much better than relaxing in that kind of setting!



Ultimate - There are very few hotels we would describe as 'ultimate'. Hotels in this category must have absolutely everything anyone could want and really be aiming for the stars. These hotels generally go well above and beyond and they would always be at the very top end of the market. These are for clients looking for that extra special place.

Customer Feedback
10 out of 10 for the service we received... The organisation and planning of our trip was excellent. The first week involved quite a few activities and due to his planning everything went like clockwork. We never had to think about anything which made the holiday stress free!
