ocated at a higher el­e­va­tion than much of Java, the city of Ban­dung, fa­mously known for its cool breezes, is a per­fect spot to en­joy a laid-back hol­i­day or just for a day-trip from Jakarta. I was for­tu­nate enough to ex­pe­ri­ence the newly ren­o­vated Sher­a­ton Ban­dung Ho­tel & Tow­ers. It was a clear sunny day in Jakarta when I em­barked on my trip to Ban­dung. It took only three hours by car to reach Dago Val­ley in Ban­dung where Sher­a­ton Ban­dung Ho­tel & Tow­ers is lo­cated. The mo­ment I ar­rived at the prop­erty, I was im­me­di­ately im­pressed by the look of the beau­ti­ful lobby; it was to­tally dif­fer­ent to the last time I came here. The ar­range­ment of a se­ries of crys­tal-clear glass chan­de­liers dec­o­rat­ing the high­ceilinged lobby sym­bol­ises Ban­dung’s blue skies and clouds, while sep­a­rate din­ing ta­bles and chairs with art deco styling give a fresh feel­ing to the en­tire room. A friendly desk clerk greeted me with a smile as I checked in for one night at this beau­ti­ful ho­tel. As I was es­corted to my room, I came across the la­goon-style pool sur­rounded by palm trees while a tall frangipani tree in the cen­tre gave a re­sort-like at­mos­phere to the area. The fresh, crys­tal-clear wa­ter in­vited me to jump in straight away. But then I re­mem­bered that I had to go to my room first. My room was on the third floor, and gave me an in­ter­est­ing view of the lively swimming pool from the front door, and a view of the lush green gar­den from the balco- ny. The room looked com­pletely dif­fer­ent to what it was like pre­vi­ously. A fresh, chic am­bi­ence and re­lax­ing earth colours are the main fea­tures of the room’s decor. The bed felt soft and com­fort­able, with a beau­ti­ful flower paint­ing above it. A range of ameni­ties is stan­dard in this room, such as LCD TV, lap­top-sized safe de­posit box, refreshment cen­tre, smart desk, com­fort­able sofa and walk-in rain shower. I had a won­der­ful din­ner at the Feast Restau­rant. There are many food op­tions here, from in­ter­na­tional to au­then­tic lo­cal dishes served buf­fet-style. I love the seared sea bass and the tra­di­tional Sun­danese favourite nasi tu­tug on­com, which fea­tures grilled fer­mented soy­bean wrapped in ba­nana leaf. I en­joyed the warm, ca­sual am­bi­ence that ex­ists through­out the restau­rant, es­pe­cially in the open area over­look­ing the pool, which made me feel re­laxed while I en­joyed din­ner. Another din­ing op­tion for a light bite is at the newly opened Toastina. A bright and cheery at­mos­phere with con­tem­po­rary de­sign, cof­fee ta­bles and over­sized so­fas of­fer a warm and cozy am­bi­ence per­fect for hang­ing out with friends while en­joy­ing a cup of cof­fee or tea, ac­com­pa­nied by cakes and sweets, or even gourmet pizza.
