Amanjiwo
Borobudur, Java

Top 10s logo 

Amanjiwo is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia.

Resting in the rural heartland of still relatively untouched Central Java, Amanjiwo is surrounded by extraordinary cultural, physical and spiritual beauty. 

The main building, designed by Aman’s top architect Ed Tuttle, houses Amanjiwo’s grand entrance; a show stopping structure which is almost as unforgettable as its neighbour, the colossal 9th century Buddhist temple of Borobudur. From here, a flight of steps leads up to the Rotunda Bar, the stately colonnaded Dining Room and the Terrace, all of which offer incredible views of the luscious Kedu Plain, and the iconic sacred Buddhist site beyond. The 40-metre Romanesque amphitheatre style pool, built from coral-beige locally hon limestone blocks, also offers breath taking views over the surrounding lush, green countryside of rice paddies and banyan trees. 

The thirty-four well-appointed suites are laid out in two deep crescent formations, bordered with high limestone walls and draped with beautiful spider lilies. These curve into stone walkways which connect the Suites with the Pool Club and main building. All the rooms come with four-pillared beds, outdoor sunken bathtubs, hand carved furniture, exotic Javanese textiles and antique glass paintings. Sliding glass doors open out onto garden terraces, and 15 of the suites have private swimming pools. 

The property is framed by the dramatic Menoreh Hills which offer great hiking opportunities, and the nature walks are ideal for families. There are also two tennis courts located at the foot of the hills, yoga and a gym. A climb into the hills shows off excellent views of this exceptional hotel.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
