Five-Star Pleasure - - PUBLISHER’S NOTE -

In the heart of Jakarta lies The Dhar­mawangsa Jakarta, a peace­ful oa­sis of tran­quil­lity, lux­ury and

time­less ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign. The epit­ome of clas­sic Ja­vanese style, it is a blend of sub­tle so­phis­ti­ca­tion

and el­e­gant in­ti­macy, where the finest things in life are

avail­able to you.

The Dhar­mawangsa Jakarta is uniquely In­done­sian in char­ac­ter and has the pe­cu­liar In­done­sian trait of be­ing thor­oughly mod­ern, yet at the same time tra­di­tional. The ar­chi­tec­ture it­self re­sem­bles an In­done­sian man­sion, built around the cen­turies-old con­cept of link­ing a se­ries of spa­ces – the front ve­randa, a cen­tral hall and a back ve­randa. Gen­er­ously sprin­kled through­out the property, you will find a mag­nif­i­cent collection of antiques and art­works from around the ar­chi­pel­ago. The dis­tinc­tively res­i­den­tial style of the ho­tel of­fers a sooth­ing con­trast to the teem­ing me­trop­o­lis sur­round­ing it.

EL­E­GANT ROOMS: Spa­cious­ness, seren­ity and sanc­tu­ary are the or­der of the day, trans­port­ing guests to an­other world, right in the heart of Jakarta. Each of the 64 rooms and 36 suites at The Dhar­mawangsa is the pic­ture of el­e­gance and lux­ury. Each is gen­er­ously spa­cious and opens onto a large pri­vate bal­cony and are all de­signed and dec­o­rated around one of five the­matic schemes us­ing tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als: Java, Pe­sisiran (North Java), Bali, South Su­ma­tra and East In­done­sia. The rooms of­fer lux­u­ri­ous el­e­gance and the warmth of the per­sonal touch, pro­vid­ing guests the com­forts of home and the grandeur of five-star liv­ing. Ev­ery guest has ac­cess to per­sonal but­ler ser­vice. With just a touch of the but­ton, a but­ler is ready to see to your ev­ery need, 24 hours a day.

EX QUI SITE FLAVOURS: The truest plea­sures of the ta­ble are re­vealed when all of the senses are har­mo­niously min­gled, as they are at any of The Dhar­mawangsa’s restaurants. Each restau­rant is a gen­uine culi­nary des­ti­na­tion, pre­sent­ing ex­quis­ite dishes served in a com­fort­able at­mos­phere that will en­chant the palate and soothe the senses. En­joy a leisurely af­ter­noon tea while gaz­ing across soft lawns and trop­i­cal flow­ers at the Tea Lounge, or re­tire to the Caviar Lounge for cock­tails. De­light in an af­ter­dinner co­gnac at The Li­brary or savour a mar­tini at The Bar. The Dhar­mawangsa is renowned for its mar­ti­nis, a must-try be­ing, of course, the sig­na­ture choco­late mar­tini.

For the finest French cui­sine, visit the mag­nif­i­cent Sri­wi­jaya, lo­cated ad­ja­cent to the en­trance of the ho­tel, a the­matic fine-din­ing es­tab­lish­ment in­spired by the 8th century Sri­wi­jaya king­dom. At Jakarta Restau­rant, with its art-deco fur­nish­ing, din­ing with a ca­sual flair is the or­der of the day where guests are served in­ter­na­tional del­i­ca­cies and tra­di­tional In­done­sian dishes.

LAV­ISH WED DINGS: If you are plan­ning to say ‘I Do’, then do it with style at The Dhar­mawangsa. De­signed to match the in­tegrity of the en­tire com­plex, the Grand Ball­room is de­signed to com­ple­ment the ho­tel build­ing. Here the nu­ances are more sub­dued and there is a per­ma­nent, pur­pose-built stage for wed­ding re­cep­tions in lav­ish and sump­tu­ous style, while the ho­tel’s friendly and at­ten­tive ser­vice will en­sure per­fec­tion on any oc­ca­sion with a per­sonal touch.
