One of Jakarta's hospitality landmarks, Mandarin Oriental Jakarta reopened on October 8, 2009 after a 20-month renovation. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the country's trade minister and guest of honour, Mari Elka Pangestu recalled the many happy occasions she enjoyed at the hotel.
Mandarin Oriental Jakarta, which made its debut in 1978 along the centrally located Jalan M H Thamrin, has reduced its room inventory to 272 guestrooms, including 56 oversized stylish Mandarin Rooms and six suites, conceptualised by the Singaporean firm of Lim Teo and Wilkes (LTW). Interiors combine the Group's oriental roots with Indonesian cultural nuances. Other facilities include four restaurants and one bar as well as the popular Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop and over 1,000sqm of meeting and banqueting space for 14 to 600 guests, all with natural daylight.
