Amanjiwo, Indonesia

Resting in a natural amphitheatre formed by majestic hills and picturesque rice paddies, the temple-like structure of Amanjiwo references that of nearby Borobudur. The UNESCO monument creates a meditative backdrop to introspective suites enclosed by garden courtyards, thatched bales and sunken outdoor baths. Beyond the colonnaded pool, adventure, enlightened wellness and cultural discovery await in this landscape of brooding volcanoes and emerald plains: Java’s heritage heartland.
