“My 22-hour pilgrimage to Amanjiwo, what many hoteliers consider the world’s most extraordinary hotel, was well worth the flight time. And there’s never been a more apt setting for renewal than in Central Java. Nestled in a natural amphitheatre, Amanjiwo faces the world’s largest Buddhist monument, the ninth-century Borobodur—built to look like a lotus flower fallen from the sky… The resourceful staff can arrange anything from perfectly executed picnic lunches, complete with silk pillows and more fresh fixings than you can imagine, to cultural excursions to see the traditional all-male Dayakan trance dance. All in all, one of the world’s best stays.”

“…no matter what the current trend of building, when visitors come they will remain impressed”

“Amanresorts are legendary in Bali and Phuket, but only an enlightened few know about Amanjiwo, a small, sublime retreat in Java designed to mimic and show off its famous neighbor, Borobodur—the world’s largest Buddhist monument lies less than two miles away.”, USA

“A luxurious Aman resort hidden above Borobodur with a silver leaf-covered ceiling in the restaurant, graceful limestone pool and other-worldly suite.”

“A mystical concoction of staggering beauty, this is architect Ed Tuttle at his best. Totally tapped into its environment, the hotel overlooks and echoes the spectacular ninth-century Buddhist monument Borobudur. The four-poster bedrooms lead off a stunning rotunda and have sunken outdoor tubs and gob smacking heat-haze views. Service is slick and swift – staff greet you with zingy homemade ginger beer and slide bookmarks in the page of the book you left open. This hotel cleverly makes you feel both wonderfully relaxed and terrifically important. Go on epic temple climbs, squeak about in a rattan basket atop an elephant, wheel through the paddy fields on bicycles, return for the tastiest nasi goreng. Outstanding.”

"The view from the Terrace, inspiring at any time, is particularly so at dawn and twilight, or after a cleansing rain, when the world of Java clears, revealing its horizons."
