Marriott Bonvoy, the parent company of St. Regis Hotels and Resorts, has made the long-awaited announcement that its newest property, The St. Regis Jakarta, will finally open its doors to the public.
The St. Regis Jakarta, a new hotel in the Kuningan, Sudirman, and Thamrin central business districts, is the product of one of the world’s most storied luxury brands. It promises to introduce guests and local luminaries to a fresh perspective on fine dining, personalised service and cutting-edge design.
The hotel is located in one of the Asia Pacific region’s most dynamic central business areas, the Golden Triangle, which stretches from Central to South Jakarta. The St. Regis Jakarta is a short 45-minute drive from Soekarno Hatta International Airport and situated within an elite enclave that is home to foreign embassies, government and commercial buildings and high-end shopping.
The vision of the St. Regis Jakarta is to create a cultural and opulent stage for unforgettable experiences. It also seeks to amass the cultural nuances of Indonesia (such as its design, music, and art) in order to create extraordinary settings for intergenerational and trans-generational bonding and celebration.
Celebrating local culture and character
Every St. Regis hotel reflects the culture and identity of its destination, and the design of The St. Regis Jakarta was inspired by Indonesia’s rich musical traditions, as imagined by award-winning New York-based interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud.
The hotel’s narrative embraces music and performance as a catalyst for human experience, and guests are met in the foyer by a kinetic chandelier dubbed “Sound of Light,” designed by famed Czech glassmaker LASVIT and synchronised with music by Indonesian musician Andi Rianto. The installation creates a dazzling light that dances across surfaces and places, highlighting Indonesia’s distinct soundscapes and giving a spectacular greeting for arriving guests.
Outdoor settings, including the hotel’s entryway and swimming pool, have artworks with the theme “Discovery” by famous landscape architect Bill Bensley.
The Drawing Room, a beautiful salon off the entrance, offers St. Regis traditions like Afternoon Tea and Champagne sabrage at any time. Bel Étage’s all-day dining menu includes traditional Indonesian dishes and those created by the chefs, who honour the country’s unique culinary heritage by blending ingredients from around the region. Rosé, the hotel’s casual deli, serves gourmet beverages, pastries, breads, and cold cuts. Dip and drink at The Pool Bar to let you chill and enjoy city life. Eddy Susanto’s stunning St. Regis Bar painting captures Indonesian jazz’s tempo, energy, and passion.
The St. Regis Bar serves the hotel’s version of the Bloody Mary, the Batavia Mary. It is a native rice wine with chilli and sour vinegar, pays tribute to Jakarta’s previous colonial name. The Violet Hour Ritual involves discovering a series of martinis from a homemade cart, including the tempting Violet Hour, Flame of Love, and Poet’s Dream.
The hotel’s almost 2,500 square meters of event space is ideal for large conferences and other events. The Astor Ballroom holds over a thousand guests and has a stunning LASVIT ceiling depicting Indonesian mountains.
The St. Regis Spa’s “New Life and Fertility” treatments uses ingredients from Java’s volcanic mountains to pamper you. OxyGeneo® facials and spa treatments help rejuvenate your skin. The hotel’s fitness centre offers Technogym equipment, personal trainers, and group exercise classes to help visitors reach their fitness goals.
There are a total of 282 rooms at the St. Regis Jakarta, each one luxuriously outfitted. The suites, which range in size from 75 square meters to 187 square meters, all have private balconies. The rooms, designed by the illustrious GA Design team, exude a sense of modern elegance and are replete with thoughtful touches like pillows embroidered with batik patterns by Indonesian artist Iwan Tirta. The St. Regis Butler Service, a hallmark of the brand for over a century, will make sure that each guest’s unique preferences are taken into account at every stage of their stay.
