Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Amanjiwo has prepared a list of fun activities for guests throughout the year. For a start, guests are invited to join evening cocktails on the 20th of each month followed by a dinner with Javanese cuisine and a view of Borobudur Temple in the background. Resident anthropologist Patrick Von Hoebrooke will be in attendance to explain all about the world’s largest Buddhist temple. The resort also offers a 20-minute cooking class where adults can learn to cook Javanese dishes like satay and fried rice, while children will have fun making sweet treats like ice cream and brownies. The fun doesn’t stop there as the resort presents a special 20th anniversary cycling excursion that will take guests on a 20-kilometer tour of Amanjiwo’s UNESCO-protected surroundings for two hours. The excursion is available in two route options, and guests will get an Amanjiwo 20th 20 km shirt at the end of the tour. For art enthusiasts, don’t miss a series of art exhibitions, one of them being “The Sikepan Collection” by John van der Sterren that is available until April 30. Other art events include an art show titled “Topeng” which starts in May and a meet-young-local-artists program from September until the end of the year.
