The chic, contemporary design incorporates motifs drawn from Borneo’s flora and indigenous cultures.
Residents of the Indonesian capital now have even more reason to book a staycation at Grand Hyatt Jakarta, thanks to the recent launch of its new-look rooms and suites by the acclaimed local studio Hadiprana Design, which has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Hyatt in Indonesia.
Repeat guests will notice that the color palette in the revamped accommodation is more subtle than before, with muted tones like taupe, sage green, and blue-gray. Hadiprana has also introduced design details inspired by the indigenous cultures and flora of Borneo: the curving wire-like frames of hanging lamps take their cues from traditional bangles, textured walls and doorways have grooves recalling the fronds of nipa palms, and the full-height headboards are decorated with beadwork or embroidered motifs suggestive of Dayak sun hats. All the reimagined rooms now feature daybeds by a bay window — the use of double glazing ensures that the traffic passing through the Hotel Indonesia Roundabout is seen but not heard.
Rooms in Grand Deluxe categories offer 50 square meters of living space, king-size beds, and newly installed deep soaking tubs with a headrest. Deluxe Family rooms come with a large sofa that can be converted into a second bed, and the lattice partitions between the bedroom and sitting area are adorned with geometric designs in a classic Hadiprana style.
Staycationers desiring a bit more space can book the 75-square-meter Grand suites; each one features a separate living room and dining table. These are also found in the 100-square-meter Capital suites, which include a kitchen area with a breakfast counter, as well as a powder room and walk-in closet with ample storage space. The generously sized bathroom of each Capital suite has a spacious marble-clad shower and toilet area, not to mention a tub beneath a bay window for bubble baths with a view.
Measuring in at 170 square meters and located at either end of the 24th floor, the newly introduced Diplomatic suites are triple-aspect accommodations with an expansive private terrace. The two suites each have a living room (complete with an oversize chaise-longue), a separate dining room with a six-seater table, a private kitchen, and a spare bathroom. Adjoining the master bedroom is a dressing area with double-layered fabric lamps, while the centerpiece of the main bathroom is a Jacuzzi whirlpool in the bay window, large enough for two adults and a child.
Downstairs on the fifth floor, the hotel has also reclad its lagoon pool in azure-blue tiles, while adding two 25-meter lanes for guests to swim laps and switching to salt-based chlorination so the treated water is gentler on the eyes and skin. A renovation of the lobby and other room categories, also overseen by Hadiprana, is currently in progress.
Guests who book stays until July 31, 2021 will receive complimentary sahur or breakfast at Grand Café for two adults and have access to the pool and exclusive Club Olympus fitness center. By topping up just IDR 500,000 on the nightly room rate, up to two children can bed down with their parents and enjoy breakfast as well.
