The Amanjiwo is located in the middle of rice paddies, far away from everything, on a hill, close to mountains, very quiet, with stunning views of Borobudur, the most impressive temple in Java. In the evening you hear the muezims from the nearby mosques, paired with the view a great atmosphere. Sometimes you can even see one of the biggest volcanos in Java (best in the early morning, the view is best then - great). Hotel architecture very nice, almost always views of Borobudur. Rooms very nice decor. Staff is very friendly.
Some downsides: Food varies, sometimes good, but not excellent. Service is very very friendly, but slow (e.g. had to wait 20 minutes for a soda) and sometimes missing english language skills. Well, do not get me wrong, it is still a very good hotel, but for a hotel in this category you could expect a higher standard of service and food (but this is unfortunately the same with all Aman Resorts, at least the ones I know).
I can really recommend this hotel as one of the best locations in South East Asia for a long weekend, very romantic, very quiet and relaxing! I recommend to ride a bike to the nearby villages, very interesting and rural, very good experience! You can spend time at the temple, walk through rice paddies etc. etc. - so relaxing!
