Amanjiwo – “peaceful soul” – overlooks Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist sanctuary, in the rural heartland of central Java. Located in one of the most scenic parts of the country, it rests within a natural amphitheatre; the Menoreh Hills rise up behind and no less than four volcanoes grace the horizon.Let's plan your trip
Amanjiwo‘s main structure is a circular limestone monolith centered by a soaring bell-shaped rotunda. The airy entranceway leads to the lofty-ceilinged bar from which one can see Borobudur in the distance. Several villages are within walking distance of the resort, so you will have the opportunity to discover local culture and traditions.
Amanjiwo’s main building is framed by 36 suites set in two graceful crescents around the central rotunda. Limestone walls give shape to stone walkways that link the suites to the main building, the swimming pool and the Dalem Jiwo Suite.
Amanjiwo provides the opportunity for immersion in Javanese culture, offering trips to ceremonies, temples and antique shops. Private dawn and sunset visits to Borobudur and other archeological monuments in the vicinity are a highlight of a stay at Amanjiwo.
