A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
Spread across the heritage-imbued grounds of Aman Summer Palace, four restaurants open to both guests and non-residents serve cuisine from across the continent and globe. Private dining rooms are available, and private dining experiences can be arranged in tranquil settings both indoors and out.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the lofty-ceilinged Grill serves Western cuisine, specialising in grilled-to-order prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood. It overlooks a courtyard centred by a tranquil reflection pond, across from Nama.
Aman’s signature Japanese restaurant around the world, Nama serves impeccably crafted washoku cuisine including exquisite sushi and sashimi. Open for lunch and dinner, Nama at Aman Summer Palace has an open kitchen with a convivial counter from which to watch the chefs work their magic.
Classic imperial dishes such as Peking duck as well as Szechuan chicken and Cantonese dim sum are cooked with great delicacy at the nine-room Chinese Restaurant. Open for lunch and dinner, the three large dining rooms are complemented by six private dining spaces, all decorated with classic Ming dynasty-inspired furnishings.
Set beside a lotus pond, the Reflection Pavilion faces the Summer Palace’s Grand Theatre, which provides a distant soundtrack as performers rehearse. Open from late morning to late in the evening, guests can enjoy light meals, afternoon tea and a wide selection of drinks including signature cocktails and premium wines and spirits.
