The utmost peace and unrivalled luxury on the doorstep of Borobudur.
Amanjiwo’s location encompasses everything that’s incredible about Indonesia: volcanic peaks, lush forests and sweeping rice fields. The unmistakable Borobudur sits on the horizon, tantalisingly close and ever-present.
The hotel is built to mirror the world’s largest Buddhist temple, and the effect is spectacular. Two crescents of locally-hewn limestone contain everything you could need for a luxurious stay. Dramatic domes and towering walls make Amanjiwo truly unique. Take a dip in the infinity pool and gaze out over the lush surroundings.
Aman resorts are renowned for their award-winning luxury and impeccable standards, and this is no exception. Four-pillar beds and private garden terraces are yours to enjoy when you arrive. For us, the Borobudur Pool Suites might just be our favourite. The bedroom doors open to a private pool with a shaded daybed at the end. The temple views from these are simply stunning.
Javanese culture is a strong theme in the spa. After a day of exploring the delights of Borobudur, enjoy a Mandi Lulur treatment – a body polishing ritual usually reserved for royalty. It’s an experience in itself.
You couldn’t ask for a more breathtaking place to eat than Amanjiwo’s restaurant. Sit beneath the silver-leaf ceiling and dine on the finest Indonesian and Western cuisine. The hotel’s club sandwich could rival any New York eatery.
