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
Half the food on the menu was not available.
Service was good but severely understaffed.
(i miss the good old days was the best cigar smoking place in Jakarta ) no maids are running after spoiled fat kids with spoons of rice ).
Very elegant, refined hotel. My room was magnificent, with a nice balcony and view over the grounds. The service was impeccable, the ambience refined (live musicians in the lobby) and it was all in all a pleasant, peaceful (mainly - though there is some building work going on next to the hotel) and lovely place to spend time in and around my business trip. The luxury comes at a price, but it’s certainly a big cut above a normal international hotel.
This hotel would have to be one of the loveliest I have stayed at. So cool and peaceful despite the crazy traffic right outside the door. Fresh jasmine throughout meant that the hotel smelt divine. Magnificent pool and facilities. Choice of dining (all good). Staff were lovely and so helpful. The room was divine. Large with a massive marble bathroom. Balcony provided views of the city- but given the haze- it wasn't worth looking at- still nice to have a balcony. Would highly recommend. A bit out of the city though- so if you are there for work and need to be central- this might not work for you- but if you can get there- it is superb.
Complimentary fruit and water daily. They even packed us some complimentary snacks when we went on our day tour.
Great service form the staff - especially the manager at the breakfast restaurant- he was amazing at remembering names, how you like your coffee and all of those little details which seem to be a dying art. They organised a great day trip as well- the concierge was very helpful and friendly.
