Located just two kilometres from the 9th-century, Unesco-protected Borobudur – the world’s biggest Buddhist monument – Amanjiwo is a timeless sanctuary in Central Java. Named ‘peaceful soul’ for the serenity, privacy and beauty of its setting, the resort provides the ideal location in which to focus on wellbeing.

To honour the rich heritage of Javanese healing traditions and ceremonies, Amanjiwo is delighted to present Celebration of Ancient Wisdom, a three-night self-healing retreat hosted by renowned spiritual wellness and cultural practitioners Bagjo Indrijanto, Joko Triagung, Sugeng Karyanto and the resort’s Resident Anthropologist Patrick Vanhoebrouck. Guests are invited to join a curated journey, immersing themselves in captivating cultural experiences, enjoying fascinating spiritual wellness sessions and inspiring lectures on the history of Shiva Buddha Tantra, as well as experiencing the release of doves carried out by local monks – a symbolic ritual carried out before the full moon, signifying the notion of ‘letting go’.
