Derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’, aman, and the Indonesian word for soul, jiwo, Amanjiwo rests in the countryside of Central Java.


Set overlooking Borobudur, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amanjiwo is within reach of Yogyakarta (JOG) and Solo (SOC) airports.


Bali enjoys a warm, tropical climate year-round. The weather is particularly pleasant from June until September, and humidity is highest during the November to March rainy season. Even during the heaviest rains, however, the sun is rarely out of sight for long.

What to pack

Light clothing is appropriate with a sweater or jacket in the evenings. Sports shoes are suitable for light touring and a wide-brimmed hat is always recommended during the day. Legs, shoulders and upper arms need to be covered when visiting places of worship.

Language & Currency
Javanese and Bahasa Indonesian are the main two languages on the island, and English, French, German and Japanese are increasingly spoken. The national currency is the rupiah; US dollars are accepted in the main centres. Bureaux de change can also be easily found and credit cards are accepted by larger establishments.
Don’t Forget
Java is on Central Indonesian Time (WITA), eight hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Electricity is 220 volts/50 cycles; convertors as well as plug adaptors are available.
Medical services are available round the clock at Amanjiwo. Reasonable precautions should be taken against mosquito-borne diseases.
