The choicest key cards in the Indonesian capital now belong to the Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta (doubles from US$332), with a trio of design heavy-hitters behind its June reopening (its former locale closed in late 2014). In a new, multiuse César Pelli building a stone’s throw from the Sudirman Central Business District, 125 suites are designed by Alexandra Champalimaud in her signature traditional-glam style, and Bill Bensley-landscaped gardens surround a terrace pool. Adding to the glitz, a chandelier with 1,500 crystals lights the Palm Court restaurant. —Gabrielle Lipton
