The opening of The Westin Jakarta is one of the most significant events in 2016, due to the fact that it marks the first Westin brand in Jakarta showcasing inspired living and innovative wellness. The Westin Jakarta was confident the opening of the hotel would resonate strongly with the local Jakarta community and guests visiting from around the world, explained Vincent Ong, senior director, brand management, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific.
The Westin Jakarta occupies floors 50 to 69 of prestigious Gama Tower, strategically located in Kuningan central business district. At only 45 minutes by car from the International Soekarno-Hatta Airport and with easy access to chic shopping centres and tourist attractions such as museums and the National Monument, the hotel is an ideal destination for business and pleasure travellers alike. The 272 well-appointed guestrooms and suites, each one appointed with the brand’s signature Heavenly® Beds and upscale amenities, are situated on the highest floors with scenic views of the city, designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), one of the world’s leading hospitality interior design firms, taking inspiration from natural, organic forms and textures that interpret the landscape and are translated throughout the hotel through dynamic patterns and materials. You’ll see this artistic sense illustrated through the chandeliers with trumpets flower and botanical artwork covering the whole ballroom including foyer and Sky Lobby, as well as the hotel’s contemporary design that features contextual elements, including traditional Indonesian motifs and Ikat patterns in the metal screens designed by Silverfox at Seasonal Tastes.
In terms of its food and beverage offerings, The Westin Jakarta brings its signature brand features such as the nutrient-rich and delicious SuperFoodsRx™ menus to amplify guests’ experience within four unique dining venues. One of the most highly anticipated additions to Jakarta’s food and beverage scene is Henshin, a progressive and modern restaurant that will occupy the top three floors of the building and feature Japanese-Peruvian delicacies. Meanwhile, Seasonal Tastes, the all-day dining restaurant nestled on level 51, presents buffet and à la carte options featuring local and international cuisine with seven live cooking stations to choose from to ensure guests are always treated to an endless variety of world signatures. For a gourmet cup of coffee with beautiful Jakarta views, Daily Treats are served in the glamorous and cosy Lobby Lounge.
Another integral part of Westin’s mission is to ensure the well-being of every guest for the duration of their stay. The brand’s signature WestinWORKOUT® fitness studio, boasting state-of-the-art exercise equipment, is in an open, airy and well-designed space, while the Westin Jakarta’s idyllic Heavenly Spa and indoor pool stands ever ready to recharge and rejuvenate. The Westin Jakarta also features a banquet area able to accommodate up to 200 guests perched on the top levels of the hotel, giving it a breath-taking 360-degree sweeping view of Jakarta city. For events and weddings, the hotel offers 3,000 s.q. m. of function rooms including the Java Ballroom on the ground floor with a maximum capacity of 1,500 guests.
