November 28th, 2015. For one night, I stayed at Raffles Hotel Jakarta. OMG! Such a windfall! LOL. We were very happy. I was in love with the hotel when I first came to their place. The room was very spacious. And full of arts, of course. When I came, the people there were very polite and friendly. Everybody knew me. What a surprise. Hahaha. Everytime I went, everybody said, “Halo Ms Yenny. Have a nice day Ms Yenny. Do you need anything Ms Yenny.” Waaaaah, it’s like a queen for a day, right?
Beyond the bustle of commerce in this vibrant metropolis, discover a haven of soothing calm and luxury in Kuningan at the core of Jakarta’s golden triangle; a hotel that combines art and business, leisure and glamour, style and service.
Raffles Jakarta is a celebration of artistry – and in particular a homage to the iconic Indonesian artist Hendra Gunawan. His legacy comes to life at Raffles Jakarta, where his works enhance the elegant interiors.
The hotel’s 173 luxurious rooms and suites are some of the largest in Jakarta. Floor to ceiling windows frame views of this energetic, bustling capital city. The guestrooms are an interpretation of the artist’s retreat, with rich Indonesian aesthetics and supreme comfort, each one a tranquil sanctuary. Raffles butlers, renowned for their gracious and impeccable service, will attend to every needs to ensure activities proceed seamlessly.
I arrived around 11:00am. They gave me permit to early check-in yaaaaay. And, the coolest thing, I have my own private butler. OMG! He escorted us to our room. Raffles Garden View Room. My hubby was speechless. LOL. It was very spacious with living room, bed room and bath room separated with doors. The place was fantastic.
