St. Regis Hotels and Resorts has opened the highly-anticipated St. Regis Jakarta in the heart of the city’s Kuningan, Sudirman and Thamrin central business districts.
The St. Regis Jakarta is situated within the Golden Triangle of Jakarta, which extends from Central to South Jakarta and is one of the fastest-evolving central business districts in the Asia Pacific region. The property is ideally located within an exclusive enclave comprised of foreign embassies, government and commercial spaces as well as upscale retail.
Each of the 30 St. Regis hotels around the globe celebrates the culture and identity of its destination, and the design of The St. Regis Jakarta, conceptualised by the award-winning New York-based interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud, was inspired by Indonesia’s rich musical traditions.
The St. Regis Jakarta features 282 exquisitely appointed guest rooms, including 28 suites ranging from 75 to 187 square meters, each featuring a private balcony. The guest rooms reflect contemporary luxury and feature thoughtful touches throughout, such as custom-made cushions accented with embedded batik motifs by Indonesian designer, Iwan Tirta. Guests will also enjoy the St. Regis Butler Service, a personalised signature offering that has been a hallmark of the brand for more than a century, ensuring that each guest’s individual preferences are understood and anticipated at every turn.
Exceptional culinary journeys are presented through the hotel’s distinct culinary venues. Options include The Drawing Room, an elegant all-day lounge where guests can experience the signature traditions of St. Regis, such as Afternoon Tea and Champagne sabrage. The all-day dining Bel Étage celebrates Indonesia’s multicultural heritage with a collection of Indonesian dishes along with western, Asian and Pan-Asian cuisines, from timeless classics to the chef’s personal recipes. Rosé, a deli where guests can enjoy artisanal coffees, teas, pastries and cold cuts in a casual setting, The Pool Bar – a quiet spot that invites escape from the rush of urban life, and the hotel’s signature St. Regis Bar, unique and different at every St. Regis hotel around the world.
The St. Regis Bar also presents the hotel’s unique twist on the brand’s signature libation, the Bloody Mary, which was created at The St. Regis New York. The Batavia Mary, which reflects the old colonial name for Jakarta and once the capital of the archipelago’s spice trade, features a local rice wine spiced with chili and tangy vinegar and was inspired by the bold flavors of Indonesian cuisine.
The property offers more than 2,500 square meters of dedicated event spaces, including The Astor Ballroom, with a capacity of 1,000+ people, and The St. Regis Spa – a sanctuary of refined relaxation and offers revitalising treatments based on a philosophy of “New Life and Fertility” with ingredients from the volcanic mountains of Java.
“We are delighted to expand our brand presence in Indonesia with the debut of The St. Regis Jakarta, our second property in this vibrant country,” said George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “The St. Regis brand’s founding family, the Astors, were known as visionaries of their time, embracing change and innovation while maintaining a strong sense of history and heritage. It is in this spirit that we welcome guests to enjoy The St. Regis Jakarta, and we look forward to providing impeccable service and exquisite experiences in Indonesia’s capital city.”
“When we think about luxury, we think about a legacy of shared memories that transcends generations. Our aspiration is for The St. Regis Jakarta to be that theatre of memories, and a theatre of culture where the symphony of Indonesia’s cultural refinements – design, music, and art – creates extraordinary spaces for the next-gen and multi-gen connections, conversations and celebrations,” said Shirley Tan, Chief Executive Officer, Rajawali Property Group.
