Raffles Jakarta opens for business

17 Mar 2015 by Clement Huang

Raffles Hotels & Resorts has celebrated its 12th property worldwide with the opening of the 173-room Raffles Jakarta.

Standing above the commercial hub of Kuningan, the hotel is adjoined to the newly opened Ciputra Artpreneur Centre, a development dedicated to the celebration of art and theatre at the heart of Jakarta’s golden triangle.

Raffles Jakarta is home to some of the largest rooms and suites in the Indonesian capital. With floor to ceiling windows, the guestrooms offer panoramic views of the bustling city. Design-wise, every room combines rich Indonesian aesthetics with comfort. As is standard across all Raffles properties, the signature Raffles Butler service is offered.

Dining options include The Writers Bar, which was first seen in the brand’s flagship property in Singapore as a tribute to famous novelists who stayed at the historic hotel. The re-interpretation of this lounge at Raffles Jakarta focuses on celebrating Indonesian art, history and literature.

In addition, the all-day dining Arts Café allows guests to get up close and personal with the sights, sounds, textures and aromas from the open kitchen concept. There is also a poolside bar called Navina – derived from the Indonesian word for “fresh” that serves up light meals and cocktails. Two more outlets – a Chinese and signature restaurant are set to open later this year. 

Recreational facilities are still not operational yet, but the hotel expects to debut its signature Raffles Spa later this year, along with several swimming pools, fitness centre, Yoga Terrace, tennis courts and a 300m jogging track on level 14.

Finally, Raffles Jakarta also offers several meeting spaces including a 2,500sqm Dian Ballroom as well as a private ballroom.

To commemorate the opening of the hotel, Raffles Jakarta is offering a 25 per cent discount off the best available rate for stays between March 16 and June 30.
