Spiritual Holidays and Buddhist Tours at Amanjiwo in Java
Overlooking the 9th century Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur, Amanjiwo is the perfect luxury hideaway from which to experience Buddhist tours in Central Java. Nestled at the foot of the Menorah Hills and overlooking four dramatic volcanoes, Amanjiwo, which means ‘peaceful soul’ holds a special energy. You enter this luxury resort through a circular entrance way with a bell shaped rotunda, reminiscent of sacred Buddhist stupas. Following through to the semi open air restaurant, the view opens out onto a spectacular vista of Central Java and Borobudur.
There are so many luxury resorts in Asia these days but for us Aman Resorts always remains special. The service really is exemplary and you feel personally taken care of. Want your soy latte in your own private bale early morning? No problem.
Personal guides relish in learning Borobudur’s many ancient lessons and are masters at bringing this shrine to Lord Buddha to life. All Buddhist tours begin with a dawn call to this ancient monument, best seen as the first glimpses of the sun rise and most tourists are still in bed. We recommend several visits to begin to comprehend the vast knowledge within each relief. Enjoy a colonial style picnic breakfast on Dagi Hill which overlooks Borobudur; a chance to meditate and contemplate the early morning lessons. We love that every guest receives a watercolor set to unleash their creative potential and paint.
This spiritual retreat also draws on ancient Javanese rituals where guests can practice Semadi, a Javanese form of meditation set within the confines of the Buddhist Mendut temple. Completing this sacred holiday is a half day tour of Java’s spectacular Hindu temple of Prambanan.
