Yogyakarta is the main gateway to the geographical centre of Java, which stretches from Mount Merapi in the north all the way to the Indian Ocean in the south. It is also a thriving meetings and events destination. Yogyakarta is continually growing in popularity owing to its unique and culturally exclusive offerings.
For a relaxed evening event we recommend a BBQ dinner by the pool at Club Amanjiwo by Aman Resorts. The exclusive dinner will be set up by the pool with candles and decorated poles creating a luxurious ambience. The menu is made up of a selection of fresh salads, grilled meats and local seafood. This setting is the perfect platform from which to launch your guests cultural journey of the surrounding area. The Amanjiwo overlooks Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist sanctuary in the rural heartland of Central Java. A buy out of the entire resort is available with a minimum booking of 31 rooms.
Another evening option is a gala dinner at Borobudur. Pre-dinner cocktails are served on the lawn before guests are invited to sit for dinner, enjoying the cool breeze and dramatic backdrop that sets the scene for a truly memorable outdoor dining experience. An excellent incentive idea is for guests to visit Borobudur at sunrise – watching the spectacle from the steps of this ancient temple. A late morning visit to Borobudur after breakfast will be offered to guests who do not wish to join the early morning sunrise program.
For those arranging larger meetings, the Jogja Expo Center presents excellent facilities for both events and conferences. Three extensive halls provide ample space with the largest, Bima Hall, offering a total floor space of 8,640 sqm.
