Raffles Hotels & Resorts debuts Raffles Jakarta
Raffles Hotels & Resorts debuted Raffles Jakarta, its 12th property earlier this month. Raffles Jakarta features interiors designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates and art by well-known Indonesian artist Hendra Gunawan; an art concierge is available to provide guests with information on his life and work.
The hotel has 173 rooms and suites, each with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city. Guestrooms are decorated with a traditional Indonesian aesthetic. Three restaurants are currently open, with two more to come later in the year. The Writers Bar, an eatery within Raffles Singapore that pays tribute to novelists who have stayed at the hotel, is re-imagined in Jakarta with an Indonesian twist. Like the rest of the hotel, the design is inspired by Hendra Gunawan artwork. The ceiling is sculpted with crystals, while the custom-made carpet depicts swimming fish.
Guests can also dine at the Arts Café and Navina, an informal poolside cocktail bar. Meeting spaces varying in size from a single, private boardroom to the Dian ballroom, measuring approximately 26,909 square feet, are available. Six treatment rooms will comprise the signature Raffles Spa, due to open later this year.
