The start of a new era in Indonesian hospitality has now begun with the much anticipated opening of the Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta.

Situated on Jalan Gatot Subroto within the city’s Central Business District, the all-new Capital Place, an award-winning architectural landmark by César Pelli, is home to leading businesses, and now, the new Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta.  With premier dining options, luxury appointed spa and event spaces, it promises to be the preferred address of the city’s elite, as well as business and leisure travellers from around the world.

The look of Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta

Internationally-renowned interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud was inspired by Jakarta’s long-established position on the global stage, by its commercial trading history and the influence of many cultures on its character, in particular Indonesia’s Dutch colonial period.  From the moment one enters the soaring lobby with its grand staircase lit by a crystal chandelier, a classical European aesthetic is reflected in the colour palette, materials and finishes, fine furnishings and sophisticated lighting.

Although strategically placed amid the city’s financial and business hubs, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta has an element of urban resort style as brought to life by the landscape design of Bill Bensley. Known for his expertise in creating outdoor spaces with exotic flora, water features and resort-like terraces and open-air rooms, Bensley’s signature style is particularly well known to travellers who have visited Four Seasons resorts in Thailand.

All-suite accommodation

Intimately scaled with just 125 rooms, the all-suite Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta feels as much a luxurious residence as a modern hotel. Champalimaud’s refined design details and rich furnishings are punctuated with discreet technologies, including well-placed task lighting, a personal refreshment bar, and a spa-like bathroom.

Dining and drinking options

Located just off the grand lobby, the Palm Court features a glittering chandelier suspended from a rotunda ceiling 13 metres above, illuminating a grand space for breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner, with tall windows opening to a garden terrace. While the menus are international in flavour, tradition reigns supreme in the daily Palm Court High Tea, with exquisite sweets by Executive Pastry Chef Lorenzo Sollecito, and savouries accompanied by a choice of TWG Teas.

The inspiration for Nautilus Bar comes from the sea, and the cargo-laden ships that have traded the world’s treasures for Indonesia’s riches since the seventh century. Choosing from a signature cocktail selection rooted in the country’s most famous exports – nutmeg, galangal, clove and lemongrass – guests may contemplate their place in Jakarta’s living history as they study the panoramic mural of the old port of Sunda Kelapa behind the bar.

Chef Lorenzo’s expertise is on full display at La Patisserie in cases of confections from gâteaux and macarons to éclairs, financiers and madeleines. In a robin’s egg blue salon that would have made Marie Antoinette herself feel at home, La Patisserie offers the finest handmade sweets to take away in beautiful gift boxes and signature bags.

Dolcetto is a grab-and-go venue for barista-prepared coffees and beverages, as well as light fare including gourmet sandwiches and salads. Dolcetto also offers catering options for

The Spa at Four Seasons

The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta takes its inspiration from Southeast Asian cultures woven with global influences and updated with the most advanced therapies. In this sanctuary, guests can choose from traditional Balinese massage, Ayurvedic journeys and European skincare from phyto-aromatic French brand Yon-Ka.

Spa Director Arie Sunia recommends signature treatments such as the Royal Body Boreh (a boreh is a traditional Balinese body mask of fresh herbs and warming spices), and the Luxury of Lulur, based on ancient Javanese beauty rituals. A special Soak & Sip menu pairs a choice of soothing baths with jamu – a traditional Indonesian herbal elixir made with locally-sourced spices.

Facilities include eight treatment rooms with two couple’s suites and a hammam, a relaxation lounge, men’s and women’s locker facilities, a spa shop and 24/7 fitness centre. An outdoor pool on the fifth-floor rooftop is surrounded by tropical landscaping.

Coming soon: The lavishly appointed 19th-floor Presidential Suite featuring views from every room, plus the Ambassador Suite will complete the city’s finest accommodations selection later this year and a women’s beauty salon as well as a dedicated nail bar and a gentlemen’s barbershop. In addition, this northern autumn, Executive Chef Marco Riva will introduce a new authentic Italian dining concept. At Alto Restaurant and Bar, large windows frame skyline views, while plush interiors invite the enjoyment of fabulous cuisine.
