Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice hotel worth the price. Stay here for a night. Really zen mode. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was warm even in the night. Breakfast was nice. But they didnt have coffee. The staff always clean our room every time we go out. Really enjoyable room.

Hotel's Favourite
Some hotels don't live up to their hype, but that's certainly not the case for Amanjiwo ... it's just as magical as I had heard, read and hoped it would be. The architecture and how it fits with its lovely natural environment and reflects the majesty of Borobudur is simply breathtaking. In addition to the physical beauty and spiritual nature of Amanjiwo, though, the warmth of the staff and what seemed to me a genuine desire to engage, befriend, and provide top-notch hospitality in every manner possible sets the hotel apart even among the luxury hotel segment. I know this kind of service only happens with strong, supportive leadership from the top, so kudos to their general manager, Pandhu, for his role in creating this lovely environment and personally setting an example for his staff on how to make guests feel both comfortable and special. I wish I could remember more names but I would also like to mention the exceptional service from two other staff members. First, Arfin was our guide at Borobudur and then took us biking the next morning. He was wonderful ... calm, friendly and so knowledgeable. We had great conversations both days and felt so comfortable asking him questions about everything. He even borrowed a backpack and carried the batik sarong I bought without thinking about how I was going to transport it on my bike. And, second, Hari hosted and served our dinner at Pak Bilal's home and he was fantastic as well. He has quite a sense of humor and we learned he speaks some Japanese, with a surprisingly decent accent, as he spent a few months at the Aman in Tokyo. Many thanks to Pandhu, Arfin, Hari, and the rest of the amazing Amanjiwo team for making our visit so memorable! We loved every second we spent at Amanjiwo and look forward to returning to this very special place!

This is our 2nd Aman stay. Beautiful resort designed by Ed Tuttle, brings you back in time to a quiet and secluded environment. Architecture highlights and recalls the inspiration of nearby Borobodur. We had an amazing pool suite where we relaxed in between excursions. My partner's birthday dinner was arranged beautifully at Pak Bilal house. Staff were experienced and very helpful with most details of our itinerary arrangements. Special mention to Room Division Manager Mr Didin Styawan who was wonderful and ensured we had a wonderful time!

Amanjiwo is a most beautiful and serene place where your every need or desire is anticipated and fulfilled This was our first stay at an Aman hotel. We wanted to stay close to Borobudur, and not only is it located close by, but we had a view of the temple from our pool villa, which was exquisite. No need to wake up before dawn to view the sunrise over the temple! We arrived for our four night stay after 30 hours of travel, and were warmly welcomed and showered with rose petals. The main hotel building is stunning in its symmetry - covered in sandstone tile and perfectly framing Borobudur Temple in the distance. There are only 35 rooms and each is a separate walled structure. The main 40M pool is beautifully sited, with mountain views and lovely landscaping. As a swimmer, I particularly enjoyed swimming laps in this gorgeous pool. Yoga is offered in the morning, and I had a lovely private class with Augustin, as I was the only guest to show up. Food was excellent. We had dinner delivered to our villa or ate at the gorgeous open air restaurant each night. Both linch and dinner featured a small gamelan ensemble playing softly. Breakfasts were delicious with many choices of fresh juices, local fruits, and both Western and Indonesian foods. Staff were beyond wonderful - friendly but unobtrusive. In particular I would like to mention April & Rafi at reception, Suna (26 yrs there) and Nuke at the restaurant. I had two identical 1 1/2hr massage treatments with Riski (Kiki) who was wonderful. I cannot say enough about this beautiful hotel and staff. Truly a great hotel experience. It is indeed a very special place.

An amazing hotel that is built with a view of the distant Borobudur temple and sympathetic to the temple buildings, but with all the modern amenities at your disposal. We were in the Borobudur suite which was beautifully designed and well equipped. One gets met at the airport and the 90 minute drive to the hotel was in an air conditioned wifi connected and well stocked car, through an interesting route with an informative driver. A breath taking view driving into the hotel. Met by management staff and we were given an excellent tour of the common areas and our suite, as well as the tours available to be booked. The massages in the spa were relaxing especially after a busy day touring in the sun. Hospitality and service par excellence.

This review has been long overdue. But it is still something to write home about. We booked 2 garden pool suites for 3 nights and they were amazing. The hotel itself is simply breathtaking. The design, ambience and the feel about the place is really unique, traditional but yet still classy. The pool and its surrounding foliage is really stunning. You really feel like you are in your own sanctuary. The room was good, with some basic necessities provided. Although i have to say the property showed its age, it was still one of the best in the area. The food and breakfast was awesome. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. We did a lot of activities from Andong, Village visit, Borobudur visit, bicycle tour, batik making, Pak Bilal dinner and river picnic. I have to say the Pak Bilal dinner was the highlight of the trip. They are A MUST DO ACTIVITY at the property. However, my daughter were bitten by some kind of bugs that left her skin irritated and itchy during the picnic. The staff were attentive and provided the necessary medicine and they even checked out on her a couple of days after we checked out. All in all, do yourself a favour, and when visiting Borobudur, stay here. You too will be impressed, dazed and amazed.

Our Tauck group was greeted by charming little girls tossing rose petals Room 15 was very quiet except the 4:30 call to prayer. The platform bed had a flashlight and water right at hand. The private out door seating area was very welcoming, including some shade . There is a lovely menu with variety, service was a little slow but we were in no rush. The view to the Subling volcano and Borobudur across the valley was clear on the days we were there which I guess is a rarity. The pool area is spectacular, there is limited food menu available there. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They even provide a water color set to feed your creative soul.

Amanjiwo had been on my “to-do” list for a few years. Finally with Asia fully open post covid, we got an opportunity to spend four days in Amanjiwo. The quintessential Aman experience is fully demonstrated here: serenity, beautiful architecture, impeccable service, great F&B program and unbeatable location. What satisfied us the most is their activities program. We did biking to local villages, trekking and Borobudur visit. We learnt so much of local culture and history from each guide and were well taken care of. Between the activities, we swim, spa, afternoon tea. Daily “call to prayers” from nearby villages adds so much more theatrical element to our stay. The whole balance of being active and rest made the journey immensely enjoyable and relaxing.

The Amanjiwo is one of the most luxurious hotel that we have ever stayed in. We were overwhelmed by the room, the facilities and the impeccable service. Staff were polite and sought to find out more about your day and wish you well. The room was cleaned and neatly arranged every day at least twice. They even took care to tie up the loose telephone charging cables that we left dangling. We would highly recommend the Amanjiwo for anyone looking for a private getaway.
