Jakarta-bound travelers in search of centrally located lodgings should look to the city’s revamped Shangri-La Hotel. Fresh off its first major renovation since the property opened back in 1994, the interiors sport a brand-new look that draws inspiration from the rich artisanal traditions found across the Indonesian archipelago. Wood engravings and modern batik and tenun fabrics adorn the 662 refreshed rooms, designed with a warm color palette centered on silver and gold. For an even more luxurious stay, book from six premium room categories that range from the Horizon Club room to the Presidential and Three Bay suite. Each of these comes fitted with a spacious living area, and premium guests can access the Horizon Club Lounge on the 23rd floor, a discreet venue that offers daily buffet breakfasts, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails with cheese and wine, and refreshments throughout the day. Other recent additions to the Shangri-La include the Aqua Playground and the contemporary Chinese restaurant Jia.
