I cannot say enough about this resort. Every staff bends forward and backward to serve us. Just ask about anything that crosses your mind and they try to make it happen.
When we first arrived, the absolute silence in that place caused slight vibrations in our ears. How very strange.
The GM was there and he made sure everything went smoothly for us.
Our suite (#26) faces the Borobudur Temple. A bath in the outdoor tub during a rainy day was a major treat.
The sunrise temple tour is to stay in my mind forever. Our guide advised us the best angle to take our photos at the right moment. The wonderful carvings of the Buddha -to- be on the panels were already worth the 415am wake up call. We took the Andong ride from the termple back to the hotel and really enjoyed it.
On my birthday we were taken to the presidential suite for a private dinner. A musican was there to play the traditional gamelan music. Flower petals were everywhere. The moon was out. The right stage set for a marriage proposal.
Food wise I would give it a 80. They could do better with a village mama chef.
We had two days of spa. The old lady from the nearby village is a star. She did the traditional Pijat massage (known to untie knots) for my husband and not once did she stop to rest during the 1 1/2 hours session. The herbal wrap by two therapists was also the best I had throughout my extensive travels.
So you don't mind spending a little more, go spend three nights at the Amanjiwo.
You will never forget it.
