Always remember a delicious breakfast at the Aman Hotel, Amanjiwo, after we saw the Borobudur sanctuary at dawn.
From this hotel, we had extraordinary view overlooking Borobudur, the Menoreh Hills and four volcanoes.
We began the day at 4:00 AM in another city, at our hotel in Yogyakarta.
Hired a car and driver for the one hour drive to the Borobudur Sanctuary, an UNESCO World Heritage site
Roads in Indonesia are not easy, so best not to drive yourself.
Amanjiwo gives a sense of the elegant Central Javanese culture.
Amanjiwo’s design is in the Central Java tradition: created in circles, squares and crescents.
Throughout the hotel, there are luxurious Javanese textiles and antique glass paintings.

What does this hotel tell us about you?
I am very interested in art and work at a museum near my home. I felt at the Amanjiwo that I was seeing an example of the stunning arts of Central Java. Also, am very interested in gardens and they are spectacular here!
