The opening of Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta in March 2009 marks the revival of Southeast Asia's first five-star hotel.
This distinctive development comprises a former national landmark, located in the heart of Jakarta, which has been recognized by the Indonesian government as a heritage site.
The luxurious facilities of the Hotel Indonesia Kempinski have opened in stages, starting with the 3,000 sqm Kempinski Grand Ballroom, which has already proved popular for exhibitions, weddings and various corporate activities since March 2008. In September 2008, the beautiful 1,000 sqm Bali Room was added serving the same purpose.
The opening of the hotel's Ramayana Wing marks the opening of the hotel to its first guests. A total of 159 rooms, categorized in deluxe, grand deluxe and studio suites will house business and leisure travellers alike.
During this phase, several dining outlets will cater to all culinary wishes: the all-day dining Signatures Restaurant with an open-kitchen concept, the Lobby Nirwana Lounge and the Sky Pool Bar Café, which offers breathtaking views over Jakarta's skyline from the hotel's rooftop, integrated in the pool area. Times Square Restaurant & Bar in a 50's American diner style and the Designer Café are both managed by Kempinski, and are located in the Grand Indonesia Shopping Town.
During the second half of 2009 the Ganesha Wing, which comprises 130 rooms, including a 512 sqm presidential suite, and an additional four international restaurants, bars and a deli, will complement the Hotel Indonesia Kempinski's extensive facilities. Another highlight ahead is the rooftop Kempinski Spa, with a pool and botanical gardens, private treatment rooms, and a modern fitness centre offering meditation and yoga.
