Hyatt has opened the first property under its luxury Park Hyatt brand in Indonesia.
The 220-room Park Hyatt Jakarta hotel is housed within the top 17 floors of the 37-storey Park Tower in the city’s financial and diplomatic district, close to National Monument Park.
Interiors were designed by London-based Conran and Partners, and have been inspired by “the beauty of the Indonesian rainforests, traditional crafts and indigenous natural materials”, including the use of lava stone and copper as well as handwoven ikat textile motifs, wood carvings and shields.
Rooms start from 57 sqm and feature floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathtubs and TVs with integrated media hubs.
The hotel’s F&B outlets start on floor 22, with the Dining Room offering Indonesian and Italian dishes, and other venues including the Conservatory for comfort foods, savoury snacks and sweet treats.
Still to open is the property’s signature Kita Restaurant and Bar, which will occupy the top two floors of the tower and will offer modern Japanese dining, private tatami and VIP rooms, and a rooftop bar with resident DJs.
Other facilities include a spa and fitness centre on floors 34 and 35, and ten meeting and events spaces accommodating up to 750 people, including a duplex ballroom.
The hotel has also commissioned artworks by Indonesian artist John Martono, “whose swirling abstracts blend painting and hand embroidery on silk”, and a series of hand-blown crystal installations and chandeliers make up a work designed to “hover like clouds, reflective of rainfall and starlit skies”.
Hyatt’s website list a total of 17 properties across Indonesia, including the Grand Hyatt Bali, Grand Hyatt Jakarta, David Udell, group president, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt, Andaz Bali and Hyatt Regency Bali – the last of which reopened in 2019 following a five-year refurbishment programme.
Commenting on the news David Udell, group president, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt, said:
“With Hyatt hotels operating in Indonesia for over 40 years, we are delighted to share that the Park Hyatt brand has launched in the country, introducing its refined hospitality and personal service to local residents and visitors from near and far.
“As more countries reopen their borders and travel confidence grows, Park Hyatt Jakarta is an exciting addition to our Park Hyatt portfolio, complementing new hotels that have opened in recent years in Auckland, Kyoto, Niseko and Suzhou.”
