Jiwa Jawa Resort, Ijen

Ijen Plateau | First Class

Set deep in the forested foothills of the Ijen plateau, the Jiwa Jawa Resort displays its collection of intriguing artwork against a stunning natural background. While guests engage with the art, the staff focus on delivering eco-sustainability and simple comforts to ensure maximum relaxation with minimum environmental impact.

Many visitors come to this region to climb the volcanic heights of the plateau, and the Jiwa Jawa Resort is perfectly located within easy reach of the vast Ijen crater itself. It also makes an ideal base from which to explore the Baluran, Alas Purwo and Meru Betiri National Parks, the Blawan Coffee Plantation and many other wonders, returning to your accommodation each evening to recharge.

The cosy, unpretentious rooms, each complete with an en-suite shower, are perfect for two adults to share. Traditional Javanese fabrics, with splashes of warm orange and ochre, accent against rich, dark woods making each space feel snug and welcoming. The two restaurants have a strong emphasis on local ingredients and convenience, combining a good selection of snacks and standards with traditional Indonesian fare and unusual local specialties.

But Jiwa Jawa’s ultimate ‘unique selling points’ are the light and spacious gallery area and beautiful outdoor amphitheatre. The gallery hosts an ongoing photography exhibition showcasing Javanese culture and Ijen’s magnificent landscapes, as well as temporary exhibits including installations, sculptures and paintings. The amphitheatre looks out over the rainforest and is a wonderful setting for weddings and music events as well as being a peaceful place to sit and ponder the magnificent mountains beyond.

We Say
