Formerly the Hotel Indonesia, Jakarta's original luxury hotel will be forever linked to the Suharto era. Now renovated and reimagined, it still delivers the glamour. Rooms are a decent size with tasteful rugs, neutral tones, sumptuous baths, glass desks, ergonomic desk chairs, wood furnishings, quality linens and firm beds. Kids enjoy the Little VIP Playground.
Factor in the rooftop pool, gym and spa, the decadent buffet breakfast, and its location on the iconic Welcome Monument roundabout, and you have an ideal Jakarta launch pad.
