Medan Revisited, A Luxury Escape
If it has been awhile since you’ve visited the fascinating capital of North Sumatra, a leisurely getaway to the four-star Santika Premiere Dyandra Hotel & Convention Medan might just be exactly what you’re looking for.
Founded in the late 16th century by residents of the Malay Peninsula and the Karo Highlands, Medan is strategically situated at the confluence of the Deli and Babura Rivers. Originally envisioned by the Dutch as the perfect place to cultivate expansive tobacco plantations, the Medan we know and love today is one of Indonesia’s most vibrant destinations. Showcasing stunning colonial architecture and an intriguing melting pot of cultures, the historic city has been successful in retaining much of its old-world charm.
Conveniently located approximately 30-45 minutes from Kualanamu International Airport and a stone’s throw from the city’s bustling business district, Santika Premiere Dyandra exhibits all the right ingredients for a relaxing sojourn. Whether it’s a romantic tête-à-tête, or an extended weekend reunion with hundreds of your closest family members, you’ll find just the right mix of rooms and suites to suit everyone’s personal needs and tastes. Choose contemporary simplicity as 152 Superior Rooms offer spectacular city views and just the right combination of modern furnishings. For a truly glamorous travel experience, we highly recommend booking a One Santika Suite, a 71 sq.m. haven of tranquillity located on the 11th floor.
For culinary travellers, get ready to eat your way through Indonesia’s flavourful specialties at Benteng Restaurant, open for all-day dining. For a casual rendez-vous with old or new friends, Ulos Café is a great spot to chat away the afternoon. If you’re in the market for a new book or office supplies, you’ll love the café’s convenient proximity to Gramedia bookstore. For that relaxing, late-afternoon drink, the Lobby Lounge features live music and a chilled-out ambience. For wine connoisseurs, head straight to Vintage Lounge at Lobby Lounge and Sky Lounge on the 10th floor where you’ll experience Medan’s finest wine cellar, one of the trendiest spots in the city.
For a little on-the-spot pampering, take advantage of the hotel’s spa, where an irresistible assortment of carefully designed facial and body treatments guarantee to make you feel relaxed and ready to take on the day ahead. We loved the hotel’s comprehensive fitness centre, a wonderful space that offers the latest in state-of-the-art exercise machines. The highlight though, was a refreshing dip in the rooftop swimming pool overlooking panoramic skyline views.
If you’re new to the Medan area, allow the concierge to help guide you in the right direction. Maimun Palace’s unique design combines elements of Malay cultural heritage with styles influenced by Islam, Spain, Italy and India. Built by the Sultan of Deli, Ma’mun Al Rashid Mighty Alamsyah in 1888, this is definitely a highlight for tourists and Medan regulars alike.
