Overview

The Review

Jakarta buzzes around the clock, but this modernist block in the midst of the city’s kaleidoscopic melee provides a calming refuge. Guests enter the soaring, Asian art–filled marble lobby — which creates an immediate contrast with the frenetic city outside — while upstairs, contemporary furnishings and polished wood are paired with cloudlike beds and bathrooms with bathtubs built for two.

Set in old Batavia, Jakarta’s charming Dutch colonial quarter, the hotel is well situated for exploring sights like the National Museum and the Presidential Palace, though the clientele skews heavily toward business travelers who appreciate the proximity to the commercial district.

The closets made me wish I’d packed more heavily — or done some more shopping — and I found the soothing hues a welcome break from the city’s assault of color, which is visible out the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The hotel’s restaurants are worth visiting; hit the TNC café for addictive chocolate cakes and fresh fruit smoothies, and Buzz restaurant for authentic satays and rice dishes — though adventurous eaters should explore the street stalls just outside the hotel for some of Jakarta’s tastiest, and cheapest, eats. Work off the calories at the well-equipped gym, and don’t miss the sixth-floor swimming pool, which offers jaw-dropping city panoramas. By day the latter is a calm haven; at night the decibel level can rise significantly.

The Alila brand got its start in Bali, so the zen spa feels like an island oasis — and I never leave without purchasing a few favorite Alila spa products, like the avocado hair smoothie. Every treatment on the well-edited spa menu is exceptional, but book the Balinese massage for some deep, jetlag-erasing kneading.

We stayed here during four nights and everything was pretty good, the room we booked had very nice views of the city, the bed is so confortable and the best is the bathroom is big and super clean.
The staff was so helpful, when we arrived they provided us information about the city and how to move around.
Definetly we will come back again.

A Pleasant Stay
Reviewed 7 days ago

Book a 2 nights stay at Alila Jakarta and It was great. Arrived at the hotel earlier than check in times. The room is not yet ready when I arrive. Check in was handled efficently by Mr Melvin in the lounge. Loyalty benefit was recognised straight away. The room I was in was an Executive suite. It was spacious and also comes with generous sized bathroom. Tried the breakfast at the executive lounge. As always with lounge breakfast, the selection is limited but they also have ala carte menu that you can order.I also have the chance to tried Buzz restaurant for dinner. It was good. Overall, It was a nice hotel for its price range.
