We stayed at Amanjiwo for 2 nights, wow, what an experience. Let me just say, the staff, especially the local staff, are absolutely amazing. they were so welcoming, smiles from the heart, and extremely friendly. and kudos to Aman, being able to train their staff to the standards that they have, it's no easy task. Look at it this way,... More

Built in the shadow of Borobudur, this hotel is truly a stunning property and ranks up there with the best hotels I've stayed in around the world. Not only is the property/rooms beautiful, the customer service is off the charts. Upon stepping off the plane in Yogyakarta, we were immediately met by an Amanjiwo representative before we'd even left the... More

I stayed at Amanjiwo for three days for a family holiday. The service exceptional. We stayed at the presidential suite. Check-In and Check-Out was fast. The Food was excellent. The rooms were relatively comfortable. The private swimming pool on the backdrop of paddy fields was toooo good.

I’m all about location! When your hotel overlooks tropical green lush planes of Central Java while hugging the foothills above, flanked on either side by two magnanimous volcanoes, and aligned with the symmetry of the hotel structure, dead centre ahead, the temples of Borobodur … the feelings evoked by this image is pure magic! Staying at Amanjiwo is akin to... More

I've been to a number of Aman locations. All of them are in beautiful and tranquil areas. Their staff are always so helpful. This location is very close to Borobudur and was the inspiration for their facility. Somehow they made a grand building which melds in keeping with the area. The food was exceptional as was the people who looked... More

Looking for a special, out of the way place ...then this is it! It starts with the incredible view of the Borobudur temple captured by the architecture of this majestic sand stone hotel. The hotel rotunda and suites have been harmoniously blended into the hill side providing a dress circle view of Borobudur in the misted valley beyond surrounded by... More

We stayed at the Amanjiwo during the Chinese New Year. They have Mandarin-speaking staff to serve us, we impressed with personalized service. The view to Borobudur is really stunning when entering the lobby, and we also overlooked the Borobudur from our room. The rich diversity of their meals and cultural activities, it's really a wonderful experience.

I was staying at Amanjiwo 8 years ago and really impressed with personalized service, the view to Borobudur is really stunning when entering the lobby. Javanese gamelan and the feeling is really magical and Aman....they do it discretly and of course with a style. Sunset trek to Manoreh hill and see the sun down with home martini and canapes...it's really... More
