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.
Looking out across the blue of the Adriatic, the green lawns of Villa Milocer, and the rose-gold sands of Queen’s Beach, the Aman Spa cultivates a sense of profound privacy and restorative calm. Treatments draw upon Montenegro’s age-old tradition of the wild harvest, drawing on more than 650 medicinal herbs.
The Aman Sveti Stefan spa celebrates the restorative effect of water in its sea-view setting, body treatments and state-of-the-art facilities, with a trio of hydrotherapy suites offering scrubs, wraps and baths to rejuvenate the skin and reawaken the senses. Lined in slate and walled in glass, the pool is the spa’s crowning glory, spanning from indoors to out.
Spread over 140 square metres, the extensive fitness centre is fitted with advanced Technogym cardiovascular and weight-training equipment. The resort’s resident personal trainers are on hand for personalised workout programmes, including private kickboxing classes and bespoke bodywork sessions including yoga and Pilates in the dedicated studio space.
The spa’s signature Adriatic Rejuvenation treatment takes full advantage of the abundance of medicinal herbs and organic healing ingredients growing wild on Montenegro’s coast. After an oat-milk soak to rehydrate the skin, the spa’s massage therapists apply an exfoliating blend of mint-infused olive oil, wild honey and raw sugar to cleanse and moisturise, then use lavender and palmarosa oils to leave the body rebalanced and the mind calm.
