Postcard from…..Jakarta!

[gmap place=”Jakarta, Indonesia” /]

Hello there,

I am on a 4-day visit to much underrated Jakarta and have inspected 16 luxury hotels.

The clear winners with wow factor are the Four Seasons and the Raffles which I guess is not totally surprising.

The title for coolest new room product goes to the Keraton at the Plaza.

In case you are more old school you might want to consider two beautiful colonial style mansion hotels, the Dharmawangsa and the Hermitage.

Afraid of heights? Then avoid the new Westin hotel with breathtaking views from levels 50-69.

Within the coming two years there will be new luxury openings including Alila, Langham, Waldorf Astoria, Park Hyatt, Regent and St. Regis. Uff. Hopefully by then the massive amount of construction will be over and the new metro operational.

Thank you Jakarta,

I will be back!
