For every type of traveler that wants to visit Indonesia’s capital, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta offers the perfect sanctuary to really immerse on the vibrancy of the city. 

Although Jakarta is known for its traffic and fast-paced way of life, the city holds its own charm like no other. Being one of the biggest metropolitan cities in the world, Jakarta also filled with storytellers and rich histories that made up this city into one of the most attractive places to visit. While most of the people who came to Jakarta are business-type travelers, there are more to see in this city other than the tall skyline buildings that fill up the place. Jakarta is a vibrant city that never sleeps. Just like New York, people who came to Jakarta can see and do just about anything on every hour of the day. And to maximize your experience in Jakarta, we would suggest you choose Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta as your home address while in Indonesia’s capital. 

Ideally situated on Jalan Gatot Subroto within the city’s Central Business District, the all-new Capital Place, an award-winning architectural landmark by César Pelli, is home to the stunning Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta. With its excellent dining options, sumptuously appointed spa, and handsome event spaces, it promises to be the preferred address of the city’s elite, as well as business and leisure travellers from around the world. 

To create the perfect inner-city oasis, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta put their trust on internationally renowned interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud. She was inspired by Jakarta’s long-established position on the global stage, and by its commercial trading history and the influence of many cultures on its character, in particular, Indonesia’s Dutch colonial period. From the moment one enters the soaring lobby with its grand staircase lit by a magnificent crystal chandelier, a classical European aesthetic is reflected in the color palettes, materials and finishes, fine furnishings, and sophisticated lighting. 

Although strategically placed amid the city’s financial and business hubs, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta has an element of urban resort style as brought to life by the landscape design of Bill Bensley. Known for his expertise in creating lush outdoor spaces with exotic flora, water features, and resort-like terraces and open-air rooms, Bensley’s signature style is particularly well known to travelers who have visited Four Seasons resorts in Thailand. 

The Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is intimately scaled with just 125 accommodations; the all-suites hotel feels as much a luxurious residence as a modern hotel. With sliding pocket doors separating sleeping areas from living areas, guests are free to settle in and make each suite their own — whether setting up a workspace and hosting impromptu meetings with colleagues, booking an adjacent suite so the whole family can enjoy a weekend in the city, or closing the doors on a long day of sightseeing, shopping or working and simply falling into quiet slumber. Champalimaud’s refined design details and rich furnishings are punctuated with discreet, at one’s–fingertips technologies and thoughtful considerations for which Four Seasons is known, including well-placed task lighting, a personal refreshment bar, and a spa-like bathroom. 

For dining, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta offers five dining establishments that one can enjoy while staying. Located just off the grand lobby, the Palm Court is a glorious space. A glittering chandelier, custom made by world-renowned Lasvit is suspended from a rotunda ceiling 13 meters above, illuminating a grand yet inviting space for breakfast, lunch, cocktails, and dinner, with tall windows opening to a garden terrace. While the menus are international in flavor, tradition reigns supreme in the daily Palm Court High Tea, with exquisite sweets by Executive Pastry Chef Lorenzo Sollecito, and savories accompanied by a choice of TWG Teas. 

While Alto is the perfect destination for anyone looking for a more romantic dining experiences. This place serves the best rustic Italian meals that are created by a skillful team of chef and helmed by Executive Chef Marco Riva. Alto sits on the 20th floor of the building and designed to mimic the grandeur of a penthouse-style dining establishment with red color dominating the space. 

The inspiration for Nautilus Bar comes from the sea and the cargo-laden ships that have traded the world’s treasures for Indonesia’s riches since the 7th century. Choosing from a signature cocktail selection rooted in the country’s most famous exports – nutmeg, galangal, clove, and lemongrass — guests may contemplate their place in Jakarta’s living history as they study the panoramic mural of the old port of Sunda Kelapa behind the bar. 

For relaxation, guests can also indulge themselves at the Spa at Four Seasons. Taking inspiration from Southeast Asian cultures, the spa is a perfect sanctuary for discerning guests to choose their preferred spa treatments, from traditional Balinese massage, Ayurvedic journeys and high-performance European skincare from phyto-aromatic French brand Yon-Ka. Extensive facilities include eight treatment rooms with two couple’s suites and a hammam, a relaxation lounge, men’s and women’s locker facilities, a spa shop and 24/7 fitness center. A secluded outdoor pool is also available on the 5th floor and surrounded by tropical landscaping.
