DINING From Amanjiwo’s entrance, five steps climb to the rotunda Bar, a circular salon with columns and
drop fans, a coconut-wood bar and acid-etched bronze-drum tables. The Dining Room, with its silver-leaf
ceiling swirling with muted colours, is defined by a double row of stone columns and looks out onto the
crescent-shaped Terrace. At either end, gold-leaf murals recreate scenes from the Hindu epic Mahabharata.
The tables are black terrazzo and the chairs are silver-painted rattan with Yogya batik cushions. Indonesian
and Western cuisine is served in an open-air setting with panoramic views over the rice fields to Borobudur.
The specialty of the house is Makan Malam, a series of classic Javanese selections served in brass dishes.
The view from the Terrace is particularly arresting at dawn and twilight, or after a cleansing rain, when the
views open up over the Kedu Plain, with Borobudur directly ahead. Breakfast, light lunches, drinks and
snacks are also available at the colonnaded Pool Club that stretches into the rice fields. From the deck or
from the swimming pool, guests can enjoy views to Mount Merapi.
SPA TREATMENTS A range of Javanese and traditional beauty treatments are available at Amanjiwo, some of
which incorporate the ancient holistic jamu method of healing. These can be enjoyed in the privacy of
guests’ suites or in the specially-designed Spa Suite, which has twin massage tables and an outdoor bale for
relaxing afterwards with spicy ginger tea. A highlight is the two-hour Mandi Lulur, the traditional Javanese
preparation of a princess on the eve of her wedding. Facials, massages and cream baths as well as a
masculine version of Mandi Lulur are also available.
