The capital of Indonesia and home to nine million people, the sprawling city of Jakarta is the hub of the country’s government, business, finance, economy and trade with a wealth of luxurious hotels to reflect that position.
Metropolitan Jakarta offers a wide range of five-star hotels from those located in exclusive high-rise buildings in the center to popular and roomy hotels on the leafier and greener outskirts of the city. Since most people opting to spend time in the capital are likely to be passing through on the way to or from places like Bali or Lombok, it is advised to pick a hotel near the area you want to explore due to the time that can be lost in traffic.
With limited public transport, however, the best way to travel around Jakarta is by rental car, taxi or by organised tour. If you are staying far from where you want to visit, be prepared for the inevitable jams, especially when moving around during peak hours and into popular districts, such as the business areas and the Old Batavia.
Hotels in Jakarta
The classic Raffles Jakarta is centrally located in the heart of the business district of Jakarta and is linked to the Ciputra Artpreneur Center, the only multi-art center in Indonesia. This five-star choice features luxurious rooms, a business center, kids’ playground, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and spa/wellness center.
2. Kemang Icon
To be found in the heart of Kemang in a row of traditional Betawinese and luxury residences, the Kemang Icon features just 12 individually-designed guest rooms each providing a cool and relaxed setting for your Jakarta stay. Guests can also enjoy the hotel's outdoor swimming pool as well as the children’s swimming area.
Although a lesser-priced hotel, this three-star choice is perfectly placed close to many of the city’s attractions with the Emporium Shopping Mall also attached to the property. Ancol Dreamland is on the doorstep, while Pluit Central Business district is just a short distance away. The hotel also hosts a fitness room and provides a complimentary express start breakfast.
