Amanjiwo, set within an amphitheatre of lush palms and rice fields, is a sanctuary informed by Java’s ancient past and vibrant present

Adventure Experiences, Java, Indonesia

Borobudur – the world’s largest Buddhist monument and one of many religious sites in the area – is a short drive from Amanjiwo resort. Time-weathered Hindu temples on the Dieng Plateau date from the 7th and 8th centuries, and the ancient complex of Prambanan boasts towering Hindu temples dotted across the plain. Java’s dramatic landscape is ideal for trekking, whether up the steep flanks of Mt Merapi or into the lush Menoreh Hills, replete with villages, clove plantations and rice fields
