Cool, contemporary hotel with a lagoon pool in the center of Kemang, Jakarta’s hip urban village
The Grandkemang's exterior makes a terrific first impression; the sleek modernist cubic architecture is reminiscent of Le Corbusier. Set far back from the busy street, the location gives the hotel a sense of repose. There’s not a whiff of heritage here; design throughout the hotel is cool and contemporary, enhanced by occasional fine artworks. The lobby and lounge areas are furnished in primary colors, with recessed lighting that creates a relaxed ambience.
Bed and Bath
Standard guestrooms are efficiently laid out and finished in a contemporary style, with wall coverings and throw carpets in primary colors and bold geometric designs, and paintings tasteful and interesting enough to find a place at one of Kemang’s better art galleries. The inner wall facing the bed has a console equipped with a 32-inch flat-screen TV and a fine work space with a desk phone. Bedding is soft and plump. The bathroom is small, functional and paved in marble.
Breakfast is served at Sperta, the all-day restaurant that overlooks the pool and garden. Two lounges offer a full range of cocktails, including a menu of 60 martinis, excellent for informal business meetings. The best option for unwinding over drinks and snacks is the Stanford Arms, a cozy British-style pub with a polished mahogany bar, stained glass windows and sports memorabilia.
