Jakarta is fast developing a new business district along its east-west outer ring road but the hotel trade has generally been slow to catch on. The outstanding exception is The Dharmawangsa, which is located about five kilometres to the south of the city centre, in one of the Indonesian capital’s elite residential areas. The 100-room hotel, which is inspired by Indonesian art, tradition and culture, shares a 4.2-hectare site with two apartment towers. The hotel is a regular meeting point for the rich and famous.
Business centre Fully equipped meeting rooms are available at both the hotel and Bimasena, a club that shares the grounds. The business centre is open from 9am to 5pm and can be opened at other hours on request.
Wi-fi Free for hotel guests.
Food and wine The Sriwijaya restaurant, open only for dinner, reinvents traditional cuisine using French cooking techniques, while Dining Room at Bimasena offers Indonesian, Asian and contemporary Western fare. Breakfast and other meals are served in the more casual Jakarta restaurant. The Majapahit Lounges offer a choice of the Tea Lounge, the Caviar Lounge, The Bar and The Library.
Fitness and wellbeing The Spa has been named among the world’s best luxury spas. The fitness centre, open from 6am to 11pm, overlooks the garden and the outdoor pool. There’s also an indoor pool.
