Jiwa Jawa Bromo
Mount Bromo

Set on a verdant green hillside in East Java overhung by low floating clouds, Jiwa Jawa Bromo resembles a small mountain ski lodge and looks out across fantastic Indonesian scenery; here you cannot help but feel peaceful. With a completely sustainable and eco-friendly ethos, you will feel at one with nature while staying at this resort. And at 2,000 metres above sea level you really are tucked away amongst the elements!

The property comprises of 50 en-suite bedrooms, which despite being fairly compact are assembled to a high standard of convenience and comfort. The interiors are simple yet effective, with tasteful furniture, smart photographs and colourful local decorations.

Art is a special feature at Jiwa Jawa as the owner is an art collector, showcasing his varied collection in his hotels. The art gallery is a lovely addition to the hotel and gives a platform for local artists and sculptors to present their work. You will see a noticeable love of photography here with plenty of vivid prints of Mount Bromo and National Park on show along the walls of the hotel. Dining at this hotel is a treat: choose between Indonesian cuisine at The Belanga Restaurant or Java Banana Gallery Café or order international dishes if you are after some home comforts. We recommend trying the Nasi Goreng (spicy fried rice with ribs) served here, as well as their local coffee, both of which are especially good.

Once you have gained inspiration from these magnificent landscapes inside the hotel, venture out to see them in the flesh with the help of the hotel staff, who are happy to provide excursions to nearby beauty spots – our favourite is Mount Bromo, the namesake of the hotel, which we highly recommend trekking to very early in the morning in order to watch the sun rise. You can also easily visit Mount Semeru, Ranu Kombol mountain lake and the Madakaripura Waterfall from here. Mountain bike tours are also available, which are particularly great for a family adventure holiday.

Jiwa Jawa Bromo is one of the top guesthouses in the area and our first choice for those wanting to experience this impressive landscape to its full effect.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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
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 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
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!
