More than a shop­ping cen­tre, Plaza In­done­sia of­fers a lux­u­ri­ous lifestyle des­ti­na­tion.

As the vi­brant cap­i­tal city of In­done­sia, Jakarta is known for a lot of things – from its culi­nary scene, to art and fash­ion move­ments. That said, the one thing that is most syn­ony­mous with Jakarta has got to be the shop­ping scene. With more than 80 shop­ping cen­tres, in­clud­ing the ones in Greater Jakarta, peo­ple from other cities in In­done­sia or even other coun­tries have been putting shop­ping on the top of their to-do list when vis­it­ing Jakarta.

Of course, out of the jaw-drop­ping num­ber of shop­ping cen­tres and malls, one ac­tu­ally stands out from the rest, and that is Plaza In­done­sia. First opened in March 1990, Plaza In­done­sia is one of the old­est malls in Jakarta, but with an ex­cel­lent cre­ative team and sev­eral ma­jor face lifts in 1996, 2000 and 2008, it suc­cess­fully man­ages to stay rel­e­vant and be the lead­ing des­ti­na­tion among its coun­ter­parts.

When it was first opened, Plaza In­done­sia was al­ready at a stag­ger­ing 38,050sq.m. in size, but then in 2009, it was ex­panded to 42,325sq.m. gross floor area, sprawl­ing over six storeys. Plaza In­done­sia isn't only a front-run­ner in the world of shop­ping and re­tail but also fash­ion, as the shop­ping cen­tre is known to hold the pres­ti­gious Plaza In­done­sia Fash­ion Week an­nu­ally. The most stylish and chicest who's who of the city's so­cial and trend­set­ting scene can be seen at the premises dur­ing the fash­ion­able week. Held just last March, this year's Plaza In­done­sia Fash­ion Week saw In­done­sia's lead­ing names in cou­ture and cut­ting-edge fash­ion, like Iwan Tirta, Batik Berkah by Barli As­mara and Dan­jyo Hiy­oji. In­ter­na­tional brands like Ted Baker and BCBG Max Azria also made an ap­pear­ance.

The rep­u­ta­tion of Plaza In­done­sia as a fash­ion des­ti­na­tion is ev­i­dent by the ex­clu­siv­ity of its prime re­tail­ers.

In­ter­na­tional brands like Her­mes, Louis Vuit­ton, Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Givenchy, Ce­line, Fendi, Ba­len­ci­aga, Saint Lau­rent Paris, Lan­vin, Valentino, Loewe, Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo, Jimmy Choo, Chris­tian Louboutin, Cartier, Bvlgari, Tif­fany &

Co. and Rolex all have their flag­ship bou­tiques at Plaza In­done­sia – some are even ex­clu­sive only to Plaza In­done­sia.

Fur­ther­more, Plaza In­done­sia is not only a lux­ury shop­ping des­ti­na­tion but also a lifestyle hub. With top-notch, five-star fa­cil­i­ties and cus­tomer ser­vice, it's not a sur­prise that the shop­ping cen­tre is known to have an up-mar­ket cus­tomer pro­file. If all the shop­ping sprees are get­ting ex­haust­ing, Plaza In­done­sia also homes a wide se­lec­tion of cu­rated cafés and re­fined restau­rants, sim­ply per­fect to lav­ishly un­wind. Re­fined restau­rants like AW Kitchen by Akira Watan­abe and Bistro Baron, trendy new­comer like Mother Mon­ster, and classy patis­serie Paul can be found at Plaza In­done­sia – and this is just the tip of the won­der­ful culi­nary ice­berg. To top it off, the prime lo­ca­tion of Plaza In­done­sia en­ables vis­i­tors to ac­tu­ally ex­pe­ri­ence the heart of Jakarta's busi­ness district. Of course the iconic HI Round­about (known as Bun­deran HI) as the fo­cal point of Jakarta's sky­line right in front of Plaza In­done­sia is a sight to be­hold.
