Journey Through Java with Aman
21-24 January 2021, 11-14 February 2021, 11-14 March 2021
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.
Restorative Sleep Retreat at Amangiri
18-21 February 2021
Give the gift of improved sleep through reconnecting with the mind, body and soul at Amangiri with the new Restorative Sleep Retreat. Carefully developed by Sleep Specialist Dr. Micheal Breus, the programme combines a science-based approach with Aman’s long history of innovation in wellness, in one of the world’s most secluded settings.
Following a pre-arrival assessment and a one-on-one interview with Dr. Breus, guests will be assigned a Chrono-type; a genetically pre-determined sleep schedule, which will serve as the basis for the rest of the retreat.
Personalised schedules will be presented every morning and include daily 60-minute morning yoga classes, therapeutic cold-water plunges and several informative sessions and lectures covering topics such as Sleep Genetics and creating the perfect sleep environment.
Learn how to indulge in everyday activities, including a way to enjoy caffeine and alcohol without affecting ones’ sleep; experience a tailor-made, practitioner-led wake-up routine every day and spend free time exploring the soul-soothing wilderness of Amangiri. Highly informative, leave Amangiri as a sleep expert, knowing all the secrets to a restful night.
This retreat includes three night’s accommodation at Amangiri, full board including breakfast, lunch, dinner, a healthy mini bar and non-alcoholic beverages as prescribed for the programme, in addition to return airport transfers from Page airport in Arizona.
Misogi Retreat at Aman Tokyo
Available until 18 December 2021
Train the body and mind, purify the spirit and find your own satori (awakening) in the three-night/four-day Misogi Retreat at Aman Tokyo. Combining bodywork, nutrition, mindfulness and meditative practices this retreat provides guests with a deep inner transformation, and supports overall wellbeing for a longer, healthier life.
To train the mind, guests will take part in daily yoga and breathing exercises and Tao meditation and mindfulness training to gain stronger control over the emotions.
Additional lessons are available, including Koudo: a traditional Zen practice that uses incense to help tune into the senses, the human spirit and nature; Shakyo, a Sutra hand-writing meditative practice; traditional Japanese mindfulness lessons in flower arranging, Batto practice, calligraphy and a Japanese tea ceremony at the Dojo (traditional Japanese practice studio).
Guests will receive advice on how to bolster the immune system with a Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation and Acupuncture sessions in order to train the body. Throughout the retreat guests will also be encouraged to use the hydro-facility in the extensive Aman Spa – the largest hotel spa in the city – to soak in a warm Japanese bath, which lowers the blood sugar and flushes out toxins.
Paired with cold shower bursts to improve circulation, increasing the heart rate and stimulating the production of noradrenaline and beta-endorphins, this practice also helps to strengthen the mind.
To purify the spirit guests will also participate in a public Ogoma Ritual at Fukagawa Fudo temple. In line with the ethos of a new year and a fresh start, this ritual is performed to extinguish negative energies, detrimental thoughts and desires, and to make wishes and give blessings.
An ideal gift for those looking to reground themselves after a year of uncertainty, this three-night retreat includes full board, with each day offering a healthy breakfast and lunch with a smoothie, and wellness cuisine in the evening. Guests will also enjoy a daily healthy juice or tea, access to the in-room wellness minibar, late check-out and return airport transfers.
