Asia Dreams - - DESTINATION -

Surabaya, In­done­sia's sec­ond­largest city and the capital of East Java, has been an in­ter­na­tional trad­ing hub for cen­turies. Nowa­days a bustling, vi­brant me­trop­o­lis, it melds old styles and cul­tures with the new to sat­isfy to­day's de­mands.

Like­wise, Ho­tel Cipu­tra World Surabaya, man­aged by award-winning ho­tel man­age­ment com­pany Swiss-bel­ho­tel In­ter­na­tional, is a lively amal­gam of past and present. The lush dé­cor harks back to the op­u­lence of yesteryear with mar­ble floors, rich vel­vet up­hol­stery, plush seat­ing, a warm but sub­dued colour pal­ette and curlicues adding in­ter­est to arch­ways. The light­ing, es­pe­cially in the eighth-floor lobby, shows a mod­ern twist with a back­wall of 100 sparkling lights and a contemporary, un­du­lat­ing chan­de­lier, while two tall chubby Boteroin­spired dancer stat­ues are backed by floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows re­veal­ing the cityscape be­yond. In fact, mir­rors, ful­l­length win­dows, a classy de­sign and eye­catch­ing light­ing cause ar­eas all around the ho­tel to gleam and beckon their wel­come to dis­cern­ing trav­ellers.

Mod­ern art, es­pe­cially that of the late In­done­sian artist Hen­dra Gu­nawan, is found through the ho­tel's pub­lic spa­ces, while var­i­ous ren­di­tions of the Boteroin­spired bal­le­rina also show up in the lux­u­ri­ous guest rooms, of­fer­ing a whim­si­cal touch to a clas­si­cal, lush de­sign. Fine bed linens, padded vel­vet arm­chairs and head­boards, as well as bright, airy bath­rooms give guests a lux­u­ri­ous space com­ple­mented by full-length win­dows of­fer­ing views of the city. Busi­ness trav­ellers also ben­e­fit from a large desk so they can stay pro­duc­tive. The suites, mean­while, are a gen­er­ous 63-66.5sq.m. and have a sep­a­rate liv­ing room, as well as a free-stand­ing bath­tub in the bath­room.

There are plenty of spa­ces to re­lax or meet with friends, col­leagues or clients within the ho­tel, from the so­phis­ti­cated

fa­cil­i­ties of the Ex­ec­u­tive Club Lounge on the 22nd floor, to the in­ti­mate seat­ing of

The Lounge, which serves light snacks and an ex­ten­sive drinks menu, and the all­day op­tion of The Gallery Restau­rant.

More en­er­getic guests may feel called to work out in the fully equipped fit­ness cen­tre on the 22nd floor, per­haps relaxing af­ter­wards with a mas­sage or a swim in the ad­join­ing in­fin­ity pool with its panoramic view. As night falls, the pool­side is also an ideal place for a ro­man­tic din­ner; just call ahead to ar­range this or­der-only ser­vice.

The in­ti­mate, bou­tique ho­tel feel to this in­dul­gent venue be­lies its strate­gic lo­ca­tion in the heart of Surabaya city, mak­ing it ideal for busi­ness trav­ellers, while the neigh­bour­ing Cipu­tra World Mall with its vast range of shops and en­ter­tain­ment is im­pres­sive enough to sat­isfy leisure and life­style trav­ellers.

Pro­vid­ing its guests with all the mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties and con­ve­niences nec­es­sary, along­side a healthy dose of style, Ho­tel Cipu­tra World Surabaya has some­thing for ev­ery­one.
