Bali and Jakarta once again have become the homes for world-established hospitality brands as new properties emerge. Jakarta welcomes the first Park Hyatt and The St. Regis Jakarta is ready to offer a treat for all the senses. In Bali, Anantara spread its wings to Ubud, while Lost Lindenberg brought the brand’s carefree concept on to the black sands of west Bali.
After a much-awaited opening, The St. Regis Jakarta is ready to welcome guests this December. The 17-storey hotel is elegantly designed to take guests on a journey through historical and visual expressions that reflect the many cultures of Indonesia. This concept is devoted towards almost every corner of the hotel, starting from the architecture. Award-winning designer Alexandra Champalimaud was inspired by the soundscape of Indonesia, meanwhile celebrated glassmaker Lasvit
designed the Kinetic Light where the light dances and harmonises with the surrounding ambience.
The same idea is most evident in the hotel’s landmark facilities. Like the Astor Ballroom with its chandelier that took inspiration from the magnificent mountains of Java, as well as elegant elements of batik crafts and patterns throughout The St. Regis Jakarta. The iconic Parang batik motif is beautifully carved into a stairway wall leading to the signature The St. Regis Bar. Lastly, there’s a stunning mural sketched by Indonesian artist Eddy Susanto adorning the wall of The St. Regis Bar.
Emerging out of the tranquil Menteng area, Park Hyatt Jakarta struck the neighbouring views with its massive, modern, dark silhouette. The façade also reflects the interior, which blends charcoal or black marble with bright ornaments of steel, wood, copper, or even crystals. These mysterious tones are carried along into the outlets, among them the classically dapper The Bar and the hotel’s double spearhead outlets, KITA Restaurant and KITA Bar with their sombre modern Japanese design. The Conservatory, Park Hyatt Jakarta’s tea and snack lounge, brings guests into the light through a mainly grey décor, while the staple Dining Room presents a communal culinary theatre illuminated by natural light from nearly every side.
Park Hyatt Jakarta boasts 220 luxurious and oversized rooms, from the smallest Park rooms at 57sqm to the Presidential Suite that covers a staggering 300sqm floor area. The rooms are found from level 25 and above, making the outside view quite priceless. Speaking of the view, don’t miss the opportunity to stay in a Monas view room, where the national monument stands proud on the fabulous landscape just beyond the floor-to-ceiling window.
Anantara Ubud Bali Resort
Nestled amid tropical jungle and verdant rice fields, Anantara Ubud Bali Resort brings the brand’s unique luxury to the island’s hospitality repertoire. In Anantara Ubud, guests can choose from 66 guest suites and pool villas, with design inspired by the culture and traditions of the locale.

Lost Lindenberg is the fifth Lindenberg project and the first in Indonesia, offering a new approach to hospitality in the middle of the undiscovered west coast of Bali. Calling itself a guest collective, with eight elevated tower rooms, Lost is located in the middle of a palm tree jungle on a black sand beach. Having its own beach area perfect for surfing, the resort also offers a variety of activities from tours and yoga to snorkelling, as well as bonfires on the beach.
Jungle Gladak is its own spa, with a menu that includes therapies from traditional Balinese massage, after-surf muscle release to aroma treatment. From the culinary front, Lost’s food celebrates nature with its seasonal and local flavours, carrying a vegan approach to Balinese home cooking with modern techniques and western influences. The culinary team also takes pride in locally sourcing everything, where ingredients are home-grown or supplied fresh from nearby organic permacultures. The brand’s environmentally conscious views are reflected here as well, focused on producing as little waste as possible.
