Jiwa Jawa Ijen
Ijen Plateau

Jiwa Jawa Ijen, opened in February 2016, sits in a fantastic location overlooking the valley and surrounding mountains. As with its sister hotel, Jiwa Jawa Bromo, this resort comes with its own array of art, showcasing photography of the spectacular Mount Ijen crater. You’ll see these photos on entry to the resort in an impressive reception hall-come-art gallery.

The rooms are traditionally Javanese with dark wood furnishings, yet have a contemporary light and airy feel to them. They have a rustic and warm quality to them, and the colourful interiors make the rooms very comfortable and suited to its natural surroundings. There are a good range of room types here ranging from one bedroom suites to private family villas. The villas have a tree house feel to them, like luxury wood chalets poking out over the edge of the valley and nestled amongst the trees with panoramic views.

Despite the main reason for visiting this area being to trek up to Mount Ijen, this resort also encourages relaxation and provides lounge areas that have floor to ceiling viewing areas, and bookshelves to delve into. The bar and restaurant make an impact with bold Javanese art hanging from the ceilings, and a huge antique puppet display. Be it from the scenery, the art or the traditional décor, there’s no forgetting where you are in this hotel!

Client Testimonials

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
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 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
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
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
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
