Celebrations & events at Amanjiwo

Host the perfect event

Silhouetted at dawn, Unesco-listed Borobudur rests on the Kedu Plain in Central Java, with Mount Merapi smouldering on the horizon behind. Named ‘peaceful soul’ for the tranquillity, privacy and beauty of its setting, Amanjiwo claims this mesmerising view from its raised position at the foot of the Menoreh Hills, offering those wishing to celebrate a special occasion the most spectacular backdrop imaginable.

Set in Indonesia’s cultural heartland, Amanjiwo has a Nirvana-like serenity and offers a plethora of options when it comes to hosting a private celebration. Invite guests to experience sunrise atop 8th-century Borobudur, then savour an elegant group picnic breakfast in a pine forest. At dusk, savour exquisite Javanese cuisine in any number of venues, as local performers demonstrate the region’s cultural arts with dances such as the Tari Gambyong to spread joy among guests as radiant as that of Borobudur’s enigmatic Buddhas.
