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.

Excellent service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed three days at this hotel and it was very comfortable. The room was large with a roomy bathroom. The bedside reading lights were adequate. I had room #906 and I was happy with the location and the view. I did not try the swimming pool. The restaurant near the lobby was convenient for quick meals as well as a leisurely dinners. Even during Ramadan the food choices were fine and the service good. In fact, everybody from the people in the reception, to the doormen and the various service people that I encountered, were polite and friendly. This is a good hotel to stay at while in busy Jakarta.

Satisfying stay at Alila Jakarta
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I can't praise the staff at Alila Jakarta enough, their attention to make guests feel welcomed is amazing. This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, and it will not be my last. Highly recommend choosing an Executive room so that you have access to the Executive lounge where you will be waited on with exceptional service and a caring atttitude.
