Amanjiwo - Facts and Information

Description

Resting in the rural center of Java, Amanjiwo is located within a natural amphitheater with the limestone Menoreh Hills rising gently behind, the Kedu Plain in front and 4 volcanoes (Sumbing and Sundoro to the west, Merbabu and Merapi to the east) on the horizon. Amanjiwo looks out onto the 9th-century Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur. Several villages are within walking distance of the resort. Amanjiwo’s major design motif of circles, squares and crescents pays homage to Borobudur and to Central Java’s centuries-old temple architectural traditions.

It's name means peaceful soul, and peace is exactly what you’ll find during your stay in this beautiful resort that shares just 36 suites set in 2 crescents around a graceful rotunda that is very similar to the amazing design of the Buddhist sanctuary. Amanjiwo not only has the luxury of being in such an amazing location, but its also a destination in itself as the hotel offers guests a fantastic retreat with healing spa treatments, world class restaurants and spiritual peaceful surroundings after a day's sightseeing.
