KER­A­TON AT THE PLAZA

Con­nected to Plaza In­done­sia Mall, the so­phis­ti­cated Ker­a­ton has 140 spa­cious gue­strooms re­splen­dent in clean and sleek lines. But to re­ally live it up, up­grade to one of four deca­dent suites. It’s where you can kick back and take in aerial views of Jakarta’s buzzing land­scapes. De­sign high­lights such as in­tri­cate batik pat­terns en­sure lo­cal flavour. Jl MH Tham­rin Kav 15. Tel: +62 21 5068 0000. www.ker­a­to­natthe­p­laza­jakarta.com

This pala­tial ho­tel in Ke­bay­oran Baru, Jakarta’s most pres­ti­gious res­i­den­tial neigh­bour­hood, con­sists of 64 spa­cious rooms and 36 suites, each with its own pri­vate bal­cony over­look­ing lush green lawns. Pri­vate but­lers are also on hand to cater to the guests’ needs. And travel ar­range­ments us­ing the ho­tel’s fleet of Mercedes-Benz cars can be spe­cially ar­ranged by the concierge staff.

MOR­RIS­SEY

A short walk­ing dis­tance from ma­jor shop­ping cen­tres such as Grand In­done­sia, Plaza In­done­sia, and the leg­endary Sari­nah De­part­men­tal Store, Mor­ris­sey wel­comes all guests into its cool sur­round­ings dot­ted with a vin­tage mo­tor­cy­cle, an old gramo­phone, an­tique tele­phone, an­cient type­writer, and clas­sic ra­dios. Up­stairs, the 135 apart­ment-style ac­com­mo­da­tion has ex­posed con­crete ceil­ings, white-painted brick walls, and large win­dows. Over­all, the funky look ex­tends to the fully equipped kitchen. The swim­ming pool on the sixth floor is not to be missed. En­joy a lap or two with Jakarta’s breath­tak­ing sky­line in the dis­tance. Jl KH Wahid Hasyim 70, Men­teng.
