"The trip was smooth and seamless throughout; there were no glitches at all. We had a wonderful time."

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Nestled into a natural amphitheatre, the resort boasts dramatic surroundings, from the Kedu Plain to the front, to the four volcanoes that make up the horizon.

History: The resort is a nod to nearby Borobudur, a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Service: The Amanjiwo is famous for its warm hospitality, that echoes not only the benevolence of Indonesian culture but also the passion for service ingrained into the Aman brand.


There is truly something for everyone at the Amanjiwo, from ancient Javanese spa treatments, to an ample infinity pool nestled into a stunning setting, to workout facilities and a library/lecture hall. Guests who wish to do more than lie in the sun all day will not be disappointed.


A gym stocked with state-of-the-art equipment, including treadmills and cross-trainers, mean that health-conscious guests can always sneak in some extra fitness time. Private trainers can be hired for personalized training. Tennis enthusiasts will be happy to know that a tennis court is located to the back of the resort, tucked into the Menoreh Hills.


The literarily-inclined will find it difficult to leave the roomy and comfortable library, packed with books on Indonesia, available in several different languages. This venue is also used for lectures given by leading Indonesian experts to speak on issues concerning Javanese culture.


Amanjiwo’s spa, or in the privacy of one’s own suite. Spa therapists have been trained in a variety of ancient Javanese techniques that will leave guests feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and relaxed.

Swimming Pool

Nestled amongst picturesque rice paddies is the resort’s own 40-meter infinity pool. It is surrounded by comfortable sun loungers and shade umbrellas for optimal relaxation in the sun. The nearby Pool Club serves up snacks, as well as breakfast, light lunches, and drinks.


Dining at Amanjiwo is a journey through Indonesian culture, with a grand restaurant decorated with illustrious details of Indonesian history and graced with awe-inspiring panoramas, and a stylish bar that takes a page from Indonesia’s natural allure.

The Bar

Columns and drop fans accent the circular salon that is The Bar, near the entrance to Amanjiwo. With a bar made of coconut wood and bronze-drum tables, this hangout was created to echo local design and resources in a most fashionable way.

The Pool Club

Adjacent to the resort’s expansive infinity pool, the Pool Club sits on a raised and collonaded semi-circular deck, where it serves up snacks, as well as breakfast, light lunches, and drinks.

The Restaurant

The atmospheric restaurant is marked by its epic stone columns, which truly give the feel of an ancient temple resurrected. The silver-leaf ceiling matches the silver-painted rattan chairs, which accept black terrazzo tables on the crescent-shaped Terrace, below. With breathtaking views of Borobudur and its surrounding volcanoes, as well as gold-painted murals recreating ancient scenes, this restaurant in a journey into Indonesian culture.
