Checking in at the Ritz-Carlton Jakarta,weinstantlyfeelhowtheproperty differs from the Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place. Of course, both provide excellent service and deliver a sense of well-deserved luxury. But at the Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, we feel the whole atmosphere is livelier. A grand lobby entrance greets guests, setting the tone for a luxurious stay. The hotel is designed based on the principles of feng shui.
We are again staying on the Club Floor. This hotel within the hotel is located on the 26th floor and provides distinctive amenities and rooms that offer complete pampering and prestige. The Grand Club Room we are staying in measures 63 square metres. The area is divided into two large spaces, with a large marbletiled bathroom with dressing area and a grand bedroom with a comfortable seating area and workspace. As soon as we arrive, we turn on the 42-inch plasma TV and find ourselves watching the Ritz-Carlton movie “The Delay”. Directed by Shyam Madiraju, the award-winning filmmaker, the movie describes how the Ritz-Carlton puts its heart and soul into serving all guests, offering unsurpassed service from the heart. The nine-minute film is about a RitzCarlton guest who is saddened by a break-up with her boyfriend and a travel delay that has made her miss a Duncan Sheik concert with friends. In an interesting twist at the end of the film, fate and Ritz-Carlton have a hand in providing her with a late-night surprise.
At the Ritz-Carlton, we indulge in scrumptious dishes at their food and beverage outlets. We enjoy a light lunch and, in our indolent evening hours, we relax with cocktails at the Club Lounge. Chef de Cuisine Jordi Bernus introduces the Royale Brunch at Lobo restaurant every Sunday from noon to 2:30 pm, bringing together the finest farm-to-table ingredients accompanied by imported delicacies. Moët and Chandon Champagne and a selection of premium wines and beverages are served throughout the brunch. Sunday brunch at the popular Asia Restaurant can be enjoyed from noon to 3 pm. This is one of the best brunches in the city and should be savoured with family and friends. Our stays at both Ritz-Carlton properties were perfect. Both hotels are strategically located, allowing business travellers to reach Jakarta’s main business districts in just minutes. For leisure travellers, dream shopping malls filled with top brands from around the world are just a walk away. The Ritz-Carlton is a cut above when it comes to luxury and service.
