ASIA. JAVA, INDONESIA.
With a name meaning “peaceful soul”, Amanjiwo sets the bar high from the start. Fortunately, it’s also strong on the follow-through. The resort is perhaps one of the most luxurious places on Java in which to get a pampered night’s sleep along with a genuine sense of place, from the Javanese healing rituals at the spa, to the swimming pool with authentic hijau danau tiles encircled by rice fields. In fact, so confident are they that guests here will be overwhelmed with inspiration, the resort provides a canvas and watercolour set in each room.
