Serving Indonesian and Western cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Restaurant also offers a Makan Malam degustation dinner menu updated daily.

Galangal plantation    Private picnics and romantic dinners can be enjoyed in Amanjiwo’s hilltop bale, perched above a galangal plantation on the banks of the Progo River.

The home of Pak Bilal    In a village close to Borobudur, candles line the pathway to Pak Bilal’s welcoming home, where a multi-course, home-cooked Indonesian feast is served in his dining room. This unforgettable experience is only available to Amanjiwo guests with advance booking.



Dedicated to holistic wellness, Amanjiwo offers a spa menu informed by traditional Javanese healing and beauty rituals passed down through the generations. Treatments incorporate Aman’s all-natural skincare range as well as local ingredients known for their healing properties.

Performed by a master masseur, the intense Pijat massage works deeply into the muscles to rejuvenate and relax.

Strength and movement    Amanjiwo’s gym suite provides treadmills, cross trainers and strength-building equipment, along with personal training. The tennis court overlooks the Menoreh Hills, and the 40-metre swimming pool is surrounded by loungers and parasols amid rice paddies and banyan trees.
