It is well worth visiting if you can afford stay here or indulge a little. It is probably the most interesting hotel I have ever been to and my favorite hotel in the world thus far. There is also something about the location that is magical with the view of the rice fields, the hills behind the hotel and, of course Borobudur. I was on the three night cultural trails 'package' and went to Borobudur in the morning and through the market, rode the bicycles on one occasion and then I think one dinner was part of the program. There was a daily breakfast. The gamelan in the evening and having dinner in the evening are difficult to describe. It was meditative and magical and a little bit otherworldly. The manners of the staff and their attentiveness and elegance was something very special. The central Javanese are apparently known for a certain refinement in their demeanor and emotions.
As far as the basics, the room was very nice, the pool incredible, the food very good, and as you can see from the pictures, the dinning room, and library also very beautiful.
Before I went to Amanjiwo, I read some of the reviews and wondered how people could stay there 7 days or 10 days. It became apparent, however, when I went. I did not want to leave.
I can't wait to go back.More
