Park Hyatt Jakarta

The highly anticipated debut of the Park Hyatt brand in Indonesia finally becomes a reality as the hotel opened this year in the tranquil Menteng area within the bustling central business district of downtown Jakarta. Delivering the epitome of luxury, the hotel offers a distinctive collection of culinary, leisure and wellness experiences as well as unique event venues for bespoke celebrations.

Award-winning design practice Conran and Partners, led by Tina Norden was inspired by the beauty of the Indonesian rainforests that highlights the country’s ancient natural environment, together with intricately layered diversity and contrast of Jakarta’s modern urbanity.

“Park Hyatt Jakarta is unashamedly contemporary while combining the urban modernity of Jakarta with the natural heritage of the country it represents – a symbol of modern Jakarta with the heart of Indonesia at its core,” shared Tina Norden, Partner at Conran and Partners. “For instance, the wealth of natural resources found in Indonesia’s 17,000+ islands inspired our material palette, from using copper, of which Indonesia is a prime exporter, to warm timbers and black stone referencing the lava of the many volcanos on the islands.”

Park Hyatt Jakarta uses elements such as lava stone and copper as well as handwoven ikat textile motifs, intricate wood carvings and shields which are used to create a welcoming oasis of calm and elegance. The visual journey through the property symbolizes the layers of a rainforest, starting with a richer, darker colour scheme on the lower floors that calls to mind the forest’s understory. Reflective of branches wrapped around the trunk with dappled light filtered through the canopy, the palette becomes lighter on the higher floors with warm tones incorporated throughout. Through the atmospheric transition and evocative design, guests will be transported from Jakarta’s urban bustle into a tranquil, sophisticated and comforting environment with a strong sense of location overlooking the city.

Guests can also admire specially commissioned works by celebrated Indonesian artist John Martono, whose swirling abstracts blend painting and hand embroidery on silk. European inspirations are also evident. One of the hotel’s most striking features is a series of hand-blown crystal installations and chandeliers, made up of thousands of delicate orbs that hover like clouds, reflective of rainfall and starlit skies. A nod to the archipelago’s diverse cultural heritage, the guestrooms feature exquisite traditional Indonesian crowns made from copper, which is also widely applied as an interior accent for a subtle touch of splendour.

Park Hyatt Jakarta occupies the top 17 floors of the 37-story Park Tower in the centre of the city’s financial and diplomatic district. The hotel’s sky lobby on level 23 looks out to the dramatic skyline. Following a dramatic passage with copper archways and ceremonial artwork, the guests will be led to fabric-covered enclosures desks for private check-in.

Featuring 220 elegant, oversized rooms, including 36 suites where guests are immediately welcomed with the view out of floor-to-ceiling and wide width windows, framed by a central corridor in black stone. The living spaces are bright and airy with an elegant, slatted screen separating the sleeping area from the working and relaxing spaces by the window. Bespoke glass and copper pendants frame the bed, and the desk is carved out of a tree trunk bringing the warmth of the local timber to the room. Two ikat patterned fabric panels frame the elevations to the bathrooms and a carved timber panel as well as a traditional intricate wedding head piece bringing in a subtle local flavour.

For dining, drinking and socialising, the hotel’s stylish restaurants and bars create the ideal backdrop for guests and residents to entertain and relax in an enriching environment. The Spa is set over two floors that have a light, airy and yet stunning panoramic view and terraces offering a selection of wellness experiences. The feature pool area is roofed over but open to the elements and leads seamlessly to an open terrace with a pool bar. A timber ceiling unites the space, set over levels to the pool which appears flush on entering but is set up from the lounge areas on the external side.

Park Hyatt Jakarta has so much to offer local residents and overseas guests alike and is ready to welcome you to Jakarta.
