There is no better time to take a slow, overland journey by train than now – especially when the coach that one’s boarded is managed by Aman. Designed in timeless elegance with comfort in mind, experience Java like never before. Departing from Jakarta’s Gambir Station, embark on a panoramic seven-hour journey before arriving at Amanjiwo in Magelang, Central Java.

A train journey often inspires and invites quiet contemplation. As the passing scenes of rice fields, forest and villages flit by; breakfast and lunch are served in the privacy of one’s carriage. Amanjiwo’s resident anthropologist, Patrick Vanhoebrouck will share his extensive knowledge on the region’s historic and cultural highlights. Upon arriving at Yogyakarta’s Tugu Station, a private transfer awaits to whisk one away to Amanjiwo.

True to its name which means “peaceful soul”, Amanjiwo offers serenity in its idyllic location overlooking Borobodur Temple. Rest and relax in one of the resort’s 26 suites while exploring the lush landscape of the resort. From traditional Javanese-inspired holistic wellness treatments at the spa to a private Aman picnic on the banks of the Progo River, create memorable moments with your loved ones before the year ends.

Starting price is Rp49,619,000.
