Covid 19 - Our Commitment to Health & Wellbeing: Details

A traditional Indonesian medicine with incredible health benefits and a fascinating history.

Ancient wisdom meets modern remedy; immerse your senses as you taste, smell, and learn all about Jamu, a traditional medicine from Indonesia made from natural materials such as roots, bark and seeds.

Jamu is claimed to have originated in the Mataram Kingdom era, some 1300 years ago. The stone mortar and pestle with long cylindrical stone mortar — the type commonly used in today's traditional jamu making – was discovered in Liyangan archaeological site on the slopes of Mount Sundoro, Central Java. The site and relics are dated from Medang Mataram kingdom era circa 8th to 10th century, which suggest that the herbal medicine tradition of jamu had already taken hold by then.


You will be able to handpick the ingredients from the camp’s organic garden before following the Jamu specialist through the rice paddies to our local farmers’ hut.

An all-natural, anti-inflammatory elixir, made with fresh turmeric, ginger, honey and a squeeze of lemon, Jamu has been embedded in Indonesian life for centuries. Our resident Healer will guide you through the complex medicine and its various uses and benefits and share our special Jamu recipe which stems from ancient knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation.

You will be able to handpick the ingredients from the camp’s organic garden before following the Jamu specialist through the rice paddies to our local farmers’ hut.

You will then be taken through the process of making this celebrated health tonic as well as learning about the historical background and discussion on the various ingredients and benefits. The experience will conclude with a healthy picnic lunch that is served amidst the verdant surrounding rice paddies.
