The Dharmawangsa showcases 1920s Jakarta architecture, and the 14th-century Majapahit Empire’s overall earthen color palette with pops of purple and red textiles and carved artworks create a residential feel at this 64-room, 36-suite serene garden hideaway. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, squash and tennis courts, plus butlers in black coattails bring a Dutch colonial vibe to this Jakarta sleep. Rooms have marble bathrooms with separate showers and tubs and some have private balconies with garden or pool views. Guests and Jakarta’s movers and shakers alike dine on top-flight Japanese cuisine like sushi and sashimi at Sekitei and French fare at Sriwijaya.
In the Area
Jakarta radiates out from Merdeka Square and its climbable gold-tipped Monas (National Monument) is an excellent place to start getting a grip on this frenetic, fantastic city, which is also Southeast Asia’s most populous. Nearby, the massive Gereja Katedral are must-stop attractions, but you can also discover the archipelago’s storied history at the Museum Nasional, and embrace its economic powerhouse present at the Grand Indonesia Shopping Town in South Jakarta’s Golden Triangle (Setiabudi) gov/biz hub.
How to Get There
My organization hosted a high-level event at the Dharmawangsa and some of our staff also stayed at the hotel, and every single aspect of the experience was excellent from beginning to end. The hotel is gorgeous. The staff are extremely attentive and helpful. The catering for our event was excellent and all of the amenities and services were well done. For example, the events staff contracted a top-notch photographer and videographer, who produced terrific and professionally-done images (photos and video). The events staff were extremely patient and flexible with the many different changes we asked for over the period of several weeks before the event. Our guests were very impressed with every aspect of the event. Also, the guest rooms were lovely. We will definitely return to the Dharmawangsa in the future.
Yes, it’s a bit aged but that seems to add to it. We only spent one night so it wasn’t a true test....but we had breakfast and lunch, entertained guests and got a late checkout so we experienced quite a bit. May one our top ten or top five hotels worldwide. Simply wonderful. Warning, it could a bit dead, not much happening but, whoa, we loved it. Go.
Stayed a few times in this luxury Hotel and it is for sure one of the best ones you can find in Jakarta. The overall impression is fine and the rooms are huge, but you can see that the Hotel has aged a little over the years. The rooms are a bit smelly in relation to the Air condition and climate feels a bit humid inside... Breakfast is very selective and ok, but not great. Lunch and Dinner in the main restaurant was quite good (in relation better than the breakfast)
One thing is BOLD in my mind when i talked about Dharmawangsa, Its Dangdut singer.. upss.. *kidding. The one that i awlays remmeber is The people there are friendly and Kepp their smile.
Especially once we entrance the gate we gonna feel the different athmosphere, likely we are not in Jakarta.
The hotel is very elegant and confortable, with spacious areas and with perfect atmosphere for meetings. The service is of high quality and the staff is very efficient and professional. The pool area in the garden is very pleasant.
