Amanjiwo, enveloped by the rainforest of central Java, is set within a natural amphitheatre – where the Menoreh Hills rise up nearby and the farmlands of the Kedu Plain spread below steep volcanoes on the horizon. Amanjiwo overlooks the world’s largest Buddhist monument. At dawn and dusk the jungle surrounding this majestic 9th-century UNESCO World Heritage site is bathed in ethereal light and birdsong – perfect for personal reflection. Crafted from local limestone, the sweeping circular monolith at the heart of Amanjiwo frames the views of Borobudur. Throughout the resort, motifs pay homage to central Java’s ancient temples. Whether atop an elephant or trekking through jungle, Java offers an immersive experience. Amanjiwo, set between ancient monuments and volcanoes, royal capitals and rural markets, is the starting point for journeys of discovery.
