A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
The holistic healings of Hippocrates are the inspiration for Amanzoe’s light-filled 2,850-square-metre Spa, combining diet, gymnastics, exercise, massage and sea bathing with modern natural products and treatments. Only all-natural products are used, and a broad variety of proven movement modalities help treat the individual as a coherent, integrated whole.
Lavender scents the air and sunlight streams into the Spa’s stone courtyards, where water features reflect the light. Aman’s signature massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps as well as a range of specialty treatments are offered in five indoor and two outdoor spa suites.
The art of massage is an important therapeutic modality in Greek medicine. The classical Greek term for it is anatripsis, which gives its name to Amazoe’s signature spa journey. Designed to relax muscles, improve circulation and encourage inner peace, the Anatripsis Spa Journey includes full-body acupressure, followed by dry skin brushing, an olive oil and beeswax massage, cupping and a laurel oil head massage.
The Hammam ritual is performed in a heated room with steam where the 100% natural Savon Noir, known as black soap, is applied. The treatment is followed by deep cleansing with a kessa glove which leaves your skin glowing. A natural rock clay is then applied as a full body mask, which will nourish and hydrate your skin, leaving your body feeling refreshed and circulation revitalised
Throughout the season, Amanzoe welcomes a host of wellbeing experts and healing specialists to offer guests exclusive treatments and therapies from reflexology to craniosacral therapy to traditional Chinese medicine.
