Living in the hustle and bustle of a major metropolis, every once in a while we all need to take a break and get away from it all. Melani Semuel enjoys a relaxing getaway at The Park Lane Jakarta, a welcoming sanctuary in the heart of the city.
wanted to have a nice and relaxing weekend, catching up with my dad, so I booked a stay at The Park Lane Jakarta. I love the fact that the hotel is strategically located in the city with many alternative routes to reach it. And knowing my dad’s big appetite, I knew that we would just have to stay at a hotel that serves fabulous meals, which is why I chose The Park Lane Jakarta. As we occupied an Executive Business Room, we had the pleasure of checking in at the Premier Club Lounge, located on the 16th floor. The lounge is spacious, with a contemporary minimalist design, and offers a great panoramic view of Jakarta, with its brilliant afternoon skyline. We spent the evening in the Premier Club Lounge indulging in cocktails, gazing out upon the brilliantly lit skyline against the black sky. Our evening cocktails stretched over several hours as we enjoyed each other’s company in the comfortable sofas, plus the modestly elegant décor and a selection of pastries and snacks. In the evening, we headed straight to Riva Grill, Bar & Terrace. I am sure most of you have heard about the new Riva concept, which is absolutely to die for. I simply love everything about Riva, from the outdoor terraces and its fresh, casual atmosphere, but most of all I love the food here which is simply delicious. Sitting at the outdoor terrace with a view of the swimming pool, while enjoying the mouth-watering food, you will forget that you are actually in the heart of Jakarta: it feels like you are in an oasis of your own. After dinner we headed back to our spacious room. desk, an ergonomic chair and businesssupport facilities including a fax machine, three telephones and two lines with modem connection capability. Understanding the importance of a good night’s sleep, all the rooms are equipped with highquality King Koil beds with down-feather pillows and linen, to ensure you have the best sleep of your life, just as we did. We woke up late the next day and spent it just chilling out, enjoying the pool and also our comfortable room. Time surely flies when you’re having a great time, and sadly, it was time to say goodbye to the Park Lane Jakarta, but we were taking all our wonderful memories with us. A stay at the Park Lane Jakarta reawakens the senses with its luxuriously dramatic style, unbeatable comfort and impeccable service. Every stay is memorable for the pleasant service and unbeatable comfort of a true oasis in the heart of the city.
