Contemporary grande dame in the heart of Jakarta with a lushly landscaped pool area, a collection of restaurants, and a full-service spa
From the marble-clad tiered lobby to the Balinese-style pool gardens, everything at this city-center Grand Hyatt conveys amplitude and lushness. No less than six restaurant and bars are housed here, including a sleek cocktail lounge with city views, a Japanese restaurant with a dedicated tempura counter, and C’s Steakhouse and Seafood, which offers prime cuts from Australia, Japan, and the U.S. as well as locally sourced fresh fish. The fifth-floor recreational area features a pool designed to look like a natural lagoon, complete with large boulders and towering palm trees. Steps away from this leafy oasis is the full-service spa, whose steam rooms, dry saunas, hot whirlpools, and cold plunge pools work wonders for weary travelers. Most of hotel’s 427 rooms and suites, which range from 500 to 3,000 square feet, have a clean-lined look, with blonde wood paneling, taupe fabrics, and massive windows offering unobstructed views of downtown Jakarta.
In the Area
The vast, humming city of Jakarta used to be just a stopover for travelers to Bali, but Indonesia’s capital has plenty to offer, including cultural and ethnic diversity, great shopping, and an ever-growing roster of top-notch restaurants. A short walk away from the hotel, Social House, one of many restaurants inside the Grand Indonesia mall, is a chic lunch spot favored by the expat community. The menu features international hits like spicy tuna rolls, agnolotti al tartufo, and steak frites. Elsewhere in this multi-story arcade you’ll find recognizable brands like Muji, Topshop, Camper, and more. The upscale Plaza Indonesia nearby is also home to popular food venues like the recently opened AW Kitchen. But not all restaurants are inside colossal buildings. The coziers Avec Moi restaurant serves French-influenced cuisine—frog legs pan roasted in garlic butter were recently on the menu—in a whimsical space decked in rabbit-themed sculptures and paintings.
