Partnering with the Kereta Api Wisata, Aman Indonesia has introduced a new train itinerary: Journey Through Java with Aman. Transporting guests across Java, the once-in-a-lifetime experience begins in Jakarta Gambir station, where the bustle of the vibrant city soon becomes a distant memory. After a warm Javanese welcome into the station’s exclusive lounge, guests embark on a panoramic seven-hour journey through Central Java where temples turn to tree-lined hillsides. With a new story appearing around every corner, guests will enjoy an exquisite Aman breakfast and lunch served on board, surrounded by the opulence of one’s private carriage.
On arrival into Yogyakarta, guests will experience three-nights at Amanjiwo, fully immersing themselves in the resort’s sacred roots. Just two kilometres away, the temple of Borobudur – a 9th-century marvel with 504 life-size Buddha statues – reveals ancient secrets, while trekking through the lush surrounding landscapes to local villages. Throughout their time at Amanjiwo, each guest will receive daily breakfast and one special Amanjiwo experience. Choose from a traditional Makan Malam degustation dinner served in the grand colonial restaurant, a private Aman picnic on the banks of the Progo river or enjoy sunset martinis overlooking dramatic vistas of the Menorah Hills.
Journey Through Java is available from 21-24 January, continuing monthly on select dates throughout 2021.
