Away from Jakarta’s hustle, is Indonesia’s cultural heartland Java – home to the beautiful Amanjiwo, or Peaceful Soul that’s filled with ancient treasures lush rain forests, and pristine white beaches. In partnership with luxury rail operators PT Kereta Api Pariwisata, experience Java’s many facets – from city to sanctuary – with Aman journey.

Adorned in the timelessly elegant Aman style, voyage through Java to Amanjiwo in utmost comfort. Begin with a warm, exclusive lounge, Javanese welcome at Jakarta Gambir Station. Then embark on the panoramic temple-filled seven-hour journey through Central Jakarta.

Indulge in exquisite, private carriage Aman breakfast and lunch, while you learn along the way – as Amanjiwo’s resident anthropologist Patrick Vanhoebrouck shares historic and cultural region highlights. Finish with crisp champagne paired with afternoon tea before reaching Yogyakarta Tugu Station, where a private 60-minute Amanjiwo transfer awaits.

Arrive at the Ed Tuttle-designed resort, offering panoramic Kedu Plain and Mount Merapi horizon views. Experience three-nights fully immersed in Amanjiwo’s sacred roots where 36 thatched-roofed suites lie below the central rotunda – most with individual swimming pools and tranquil gardens. The resort features a restaurant, bar, and terrace, magnificent swimming pool, traditional Javanese informed spa menu, full-equipped gym suite, tennis court and private yoga sessions.

Trek through Amanjiwo’s lush surrounding landscapes and local villages, then visiting Borobudur temple – just two kilometers away. Guest will receive daily breakfast and one special Amanjiwo culinary experience – either traditional Makan Malam degustation dinner, a Progo riverbank private Aman picnic, or Menoreh Hills’ sunset overlook martini package.

The final morning features a colorful sunrise wake-up before a private transfer departure to Yogyakarta Tugu station. This return trip is a chance to reflect on Aman-made discoveries and newly cherished memories. The 2023 Journey Through Java is available on spesific dates in every month.

The journey includes return Jakarta Gambir to Yogyakarta Tugu Station journey (breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and alcoholic beverages), three-night Amanjiwo stay with daily breakfast, private return transfers, and one culinary experience.
