Framed by emerald-green rice plains and the peaks of the Menoreh Hills in rural Central Java, Amanjiwo lies within view of the mystical stupas of Borobudur, a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Buddhist monument directly informs the design of Amanjiwo, a temple-like hideaway with a towering domed roof, colonnades and walls built of local blush-beige paras stone. Here, guests intersperse days of sightseeing – at serene Borobudur, bustling Yogyakarta or any number of vibrant villages – with spells of relaxation at Amanjiwo’s spa, the 40 m (130 ft) pool, and the majestic open-air restaurant.

Experience a slice of paradise in this luxurious, well-appointed, volcano-surrounded wonder in the heart of Java. Redefining tranquility, the grounds are beautifully decorated and the views of the surrounding mountain ranges and the famous and impressive Borobudur Temple leave one with a feeling like no other.

Top-notch service round out the amazing experience that can most likely not be experienced anywhere else on earth. There is certainly a wealth of nature-oriented activities to perform in the region, but simply doing nothing at all seems to be enough in this small piece of paradise. 36 expertly crafted suites, some with private swimming pools, featuring domed ceilings, huge bay windows, and terrazzo flooring, make this property a place that previous guests just can’t say enough good things about. Allow the helpful, nearly mind-reading staff to make any length stay in Yogyakarta effortless and amazing on this one of a kind getaway.

The resort is about 30 miles outside Yogyakarta on the fringes of Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the island of Java. The landscape around the hotel was nothing short of stunning, and the hotel was fully integrated with the village around it, Magelang. Mount Merapi loomed in the distance, with lush, rolling hills and terraced rice paddies coming up all the way to the pool. At breakfast poolside one morning, you can watch local roosters peck their way around the property gardens, likely having escaped from the nearby village.

Borobudur itself was under 2 miles away and could be seen in the distance from the lobby of the hotel. The village catered more to Indonesian tourists than foreigners, so there was a host of street food and local digs outside the park. That being said, the remoteness was part of the allure of Amanjiwo

The room is elegantly appointed and spacious and felt very Asian its design, thanks to the art on the walls, the wood accents and the Japanese-inspired lighting. The king bed is low to the ground and surrounded by pillars that accentuated the royal aesthetic of the property

The linens felt luxurious, and the bed was really comfy. There is only one international outlet on the right side of the bed, though, and another one really needed to be added to the other side.

There is a small chaise lounge at one side of the room, which is the perfect place to escape the blazing Javanese sunshine. Local artwork and pottery dotted different areas.

At the very back of the room was an outdoor bathtub, always stocked with a fresh candle, and a serene setting to wind down the day.

Walking around the property made you feel like you were visiting a Javanese temple. Ed Tuttle, the architect of Amanjiwo, wanted the property to be a nod to the nearby Borobudur complex, and he did an incredible job. The corridors and common areas of the hotel always framed incredible vistas

The pool is at the lowest level of the hotel and blended almost seamlessly into the rice paddies of the valley, where farmers till their fields daily just yards away.You could even see Mount Merbabu in the distance from the pool

One of the other experiences that Amanjiwo had been offering for years was dinner at Pak Bilal’s. The Bilal family are coconut sugar farmers, and it’s now Pak’s son who cooks for guests in a traditional Javanese home near the hotel. They work closely with the hotel to cater a menu for you based on your dietary preferences and tastes.

Considering the remote nature of the hotel, there are not tons of dining options around the hotel, so most guests end up eating most of their meals on site.  The pool club has a more health-conscious menu, with a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options — think egg-white omelets, tofu scrambles and chia puddings, whereas the main restaurant has more traditional western and Indonesian options.

Guests could also have breakfast in their rooms or on their terraces at no extra charge. If breakfast was included in your rate, then they essentially allow you to order as much as you like from the menu, which sure beat a breakfast buffet. The tofu noodle soup and dragonfruit smoothie bowl were my favorites from the pool-club menu
