Amanjiwo’s remarkable rendezvous with its natural environment is evident throughout the resort, the heart of which lies within its open circular monolith, crafted from paras yogya (local volcanic limestone from Yogykarta), as it liberally breathes in the Javanese country air.

The 36 suites are designed in two deep crescent formations rimmed with high limestone walls, crawling with spider lilies and lilac and cream convolvulus, that curve into stone walkways connecting the suites with the Pool Club and main building.

The suites are domed with volcanic ash tinted roofs, serenading their ancient neighbours and in particular Borobudur itself.  A four-pillared bed is raised on a terrazzo platform which moulds into the smooth expanse of caramel mapped terrazzo floor and local materials and artefacts - coconut wood, hand-carved furniture, exotic Javanese textiles and antique glass paintings - are meticulously placed to soothing effect.  Sliding glass doors open out onto garden terraces featuring intensely special views and a thatched-roof bale or pavilion provides the perfect opportunity for dining or just relaxing.  15 of the suites have their own private swimming pools.

Garden Suites

There are 10 Garden Suites in varying locations within the resort all with views of the Menoreh Hills and terraced farmland.  Each suite has the same size and room configuration as well as all the amenities and interior features mentioned above.

Borobudur Suites

Ten Borobudur Suites offer enhanced views of the Borobudur temple and the surrounding valley.

Garden Pool Suites

Six Garden Pool Suites have views of the Menoreh Hills and surrounding farmland.  The natural stone pool stretches from the bedroom toward the outdoor pavilion where the private pool is six metres by three.

Borobudur Pool Suites

All eight suites in this category have views of Borobudur and Java’s most sacred mountains – Merapi, Merbabu, Sumbing and Sindoro.

The Dalem Jiwo Suite

This retreat is set in a discrete enclosure complete with a private entrance, a classically styled rotunda and surrounding terrace with two separately walled bedrooms, each with stone steps descending to the suite’s private swimming pool and its two lounging bales.  The 15m infinity pool, finished in a green Javanese stone known as hijau danau, is set into the rice fields.  The Dalem Jiwo personal butler, always on call, has separate quarters in the enclosure.
