The Dharmawangsa Jakarta

The Dharmawangsa Jakarta is a great weekend getaway destination for families to escape the city’s chaos and constraints without the need to go out of town. Located in lush Kebayoran Baru, the hotel blends nicely with the elite residential area influenced by the Dutch colonial government in the 1940s.

Taking the name of one of East Java’s kings from the Majapahit empire era, Dharmawangsa, the hotel has a classy interior influenced by elements of old Jakarta combined with those of the Majapahit kingdom. Colonial-style architecture is reflected in its spacious rooms, high ceilings and large windows.

Staying in one of the 99 rooms and suites, you will be welcomed with an elegant space with a private terrace, luxurious marble-top bathroom with two vanity basins and a bathtub. Each room is decorated to reflect one of five traditional fabrics from Java, coastal/North Java, Bali, South Sumatra and eastern Indonesia. If you stay in one of the suites, a butler will be dedicated to serving you and your family throughout your stay.

Walking from the lobby to the back porch, you will be amazed by the beauty of the serene greenery that will become your favorite hideaway spot. This area offers two outdoor swimming pools that are sure to get the little ones excited. You can even have a picnic as The Dharmawangsa Jakarta will prepare a Pool Garden Picnic with a variety of delicious snacks to be accompanied by the chirping of birds.

Other than breakfast for two adults and two children, both the Sunday Brunch and Friday’s Barbeque Dinner in Jakarta Restaurant are unmissable. Enjoy a variety of fresh seafood ranging from lobster to oysters and caviar, to traditional Indonesian dishes prepared from the finest ingredients. A must-try during Sunday brunch is the lobster thermidor. The most popular dishes here are the authentic Indonesian dishes. Every week, a range of signature dishes is available, from nasi liwet, bakso loncat, nasi campur and gulai sapi. For dessert, don’t miss the scrumptious selection of pastries, ice creams and Indonesian jajanan pasar.

If that still hasn’t satiated all your cravings, stop by Bimasena Spa where you can pamper yourself with five-star treatments from head to toe for refreshed and radiant results. Other facilities include the indoor infinity swimming pool, indoor squash court and outdoor tennis court. Enjoying a raspberry mille feuille from the Cake Shop or an afternoon tea set in the Majapahit Lounge will also be a sweet ending to your weekend getaway with your family at The Dharmawangsa Jakarta.
