Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena is close to the fabled Red City. Spend time relaxing by private pools, visiting the otherworldly landscape of the Agafay dunes or rejuvenating inside Amanjena’s serene spa.
This elegant venue is perfectly positioned for those stopped in their tracks by the awe-inspiring views that greet guests on arrival. Simply settle into a chair and order your refreshments of choice, then continue to drink in the vista that takes in the entire Kedu Plain ringed by smoking volcanoes and Borobudur rising dramatically in the foreground.
Most afternoons, traditional Javanese music drifts from Amanjiwo’s rotunda as local dancers and musicians provide entertainment for those enjoying afternoon tea. Served daily on a complimentary basis, this convivial dining moment sees local producers bringing their homemade Javanese cakes and delicacies to be enjoyed with Ceylon tea, coffee, or local Jamu ginger tea.
Cocktails overlooking Borobudur
Inspired by Indonesian culture, flavours and aromas, the Lounge Bar’s cocktail menu features original and classic creations crafted from local ingredients and premium spirits. Lemongrass, nutmeg and galangal all feature, as well as citrus leaves. Don’t miss the Lavender Martini and the Jiwo Mule made with homebrewed ginger beer.
