March 25th, 2017 – March 26th, 2017
I was very happy when I got a chance to stay at one of my favourite hotels. It’s coincided with Earth Hour event. It was such a great opportunity and amazing experience. So, that night, my hubby and I enjoyed our staycation, even though it’s not really far from our apartment. Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta.

Access to the Horizon Club Lounge with benefits including: daily breakfast, evening cocktails and use of meeting room facilities
I just realized that they renovated most of their suites and rooms. An inspiration from Indonesian artisanship from the across archipelago, the hotel lets guests discover the distinctive element of modern Indonesian art through handmade craft display, modern batik and tenun fabric, as well as wood engraving that adorn the rooms. They used a new colour palette revolving around creamy silver and gold, including lighter wooden furniture, embraces a look that is ‘modern elegance’. It felt so warm and very homey. We loved it so very much.
Horizon Club Lounge
daily breakfast, evening cocktails and use of meeting room facilities
What a lovely complimentary. The lounge was calm and serene. They served drinks and snacks. Such a nice lounge to visit when you want to work or just read book while having a quite time outside your room.
surrounded by a lush garden oasis
A nice resort-size butterfly-shaped pool with pool playground for kids. Lovely. As you can see below, I captured moments when the large bucket filled with water, then it overflowed, then the water spilled like waterfalls. Exciting, right?
Earth Hour Participation
Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta will participate in Earth Hour with a 60-minute energy-saving action by turning the lights off in most back of the house areas and dimming the lights in its public areas, restaurants and hotel exteriors. Guests will be encouraged to participate in the unique coconut candle-lighting process in the hotel’s garden, which will naturally illuminate the premises during the hour. Hotel colleagues collected used coconut shells from the kitchen and utilised them as candle containers, arranging around 100 coconut shells to form ‘60+’ (the Earth Hour symbol). Hotel bartender will create a special coconut mocktail from the coconut water and fruit for guests to enjoy during the hour.
Taken the photo from 23rd floor, it’s not easy hahaha I have to make my hubby covered me with the curtain, then I took photos without any movement, because it’s too dark. And voila, it looked so gorgeous, right? *too proud*
Beyond the hour, the hotel will present a Sunday Earth Market that displays locally sourced food products on Sunday, 26 March 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Sunday Earth Market aims to show appreciation, spread awareness to the public and encourage the public to buy from local producers, as opposed to buying imported products, to minimise food transportation, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint. Guests may shop for products ranging from coffees, honey, fruits and veggies, rice, soya and almond milk, and delicious snacks.
There’s also Rosso Micro Roastery Coffee takeover at Satoo Deli. So exciting!
Last but not least, we had dinner at Rosso, breakfast at Satto and Brunch at Jia. I didn’t take many photos, since it’s too dark when we had dinner at Rosso. Then when we had breakfast, too many people around us, so yeah just a couple photos. When we had brunch at Jia, we were in a hurry so no time to take many photos. But you can see my reviews about those restaurants on my blog. Just keep blog-walking.
Thank you Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta for the lovely staycation experience. Cannot wait for more experiences hahaha..
