    The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., has recently announced the opening of its 80th hotel with the debut of Keraton at The Plaza, a Luxury Collection Hotel, the brand’s first hotel in Jakarta. Located in the heart of Indonesia’s capital and situated at Jalan Thamrin, one of the most prestigious addresses in the city, Keraton at The Plaza is a distinct and intimate luxury hotel offering a unique, modern interpretation of the rich Indonesian culture. Connoting ‘palace’ in Javanese, Keraton at The Plaza will feature an intimate 140 sumptuously appointed guest rooms and suites, each a haven of Javanese luxury with floor-to-ceiling windows and state of the art in-room technology. The hotel will also introduce the brand’s signature Luxury Collection Concierge service to all guests and promises the most discerning global travellers an extraordinary experience.

    Exceptional Art & Design
    Already celebrated for its distinct architecture and interior design, Keraton at The Plaza is inspired by the diversity of Indonesia’s geography and culture and features splashes of colour, rich woods, and intricate Batik floral patterns throughout the hotel. The interior design, developed with SCDA Singapore and Burega Farnell Pte. Ltd., celebrates local influence, from an intricate mural of Javanese artwork displayed at the porte-cochère to an abstract piece hand-carved from rick Mahogany wood and adorned with antique gold, depicting a royal welcome. Guests are invited to discover the eclectic collection of art throughout the hotel and in a dedicated gallery, both curated by the renowned design firm Hadiprana Artworks of Jakarta as well as local artists discovered by Mira Hadiprana.

    Exquisite Culinary Experiences
    Bengawan is the signature restaurant at Keraton at The Plaza, providing an authentic five-star Indonesian dining experience and featuring a customized menu that incorporates local flavours and indigenous ingredients from the islands. Located on the seventh floor with spectacular views of Jakarta, the indoor and outdoor restaurant provides a respite from the bustling city below wrapped in lush foliage and surrounded by soothing water features.

    Located on the lobby level, the Keraton Lounge is a delightfully elegant venue serving traditional High Tea each afternoon. Fusing English and Javanese High Tea traditions, the Keraton Lounge features a lavish selection of hot and cold delicacies served with an extensive collection of local and international teas. In the evening, the Keraton Lounge offers classic cocktails, an international selection of wines and a variety of locally-inspired drinks.

    A Perfectly Poised Palace
    Located on the northwest coast of Java, Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and its largest city. Prominently situated near to Jakarta’s most famous roundabout and the gateway for visitors, Keraton at The Plaza is perfectly poised in the downtown business district, just 30 kilometres from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) and minutes from the enchanting and private oasis.
