Amanjiwo

    Guests at Amanjiwo—a 35-suite resort in a jungle not far from Yogyakarta—receive exclusive morning access to the breathtaking ancient temple Borobudur. The guided tours are followed by a 90-minute elephant ride past banyan trees, rice paddies, and volcanoes before reaching the resort’s limestone archways and stupas. Accommodations Thirty-five suites with views of either Borobudur or the surrounding farmland. The Dalem Jiwo Suite, a compound with a private entrance and two bedrooms, has an outdoor rotunda and a 45-foot pool. Recreation Market tours, sundowners in the Menoreh Hills, charcoal-sketching and watercolor classes, and guided treks up Mount Merapi—when the volcano isn’t erupting. Dining Try a soursop martini before dining on Javanese makan malam, a cornucopia of curries and aromatic vegetables. Worthy Diversion Attend a jatilan, or village dance, in which spirits possess participants, who thrash about until the local witch doctor breaks the spell. Rates Garden Suites are $650, Borobudur Pool Suites are $1,000, and the Dalem Jiwo Suite is $2,600.
