The Ritz Carlton in Jakarta is situated in Mega Kuningan, an affluent and stylish part of the city. The skyscraper hotel is a pinnacle of luxury and a delightful foray into one of the best manifestations of the city’s hospitality. Jakarta is a city with great competition among top tier hotels and the Ritz certainly distinguishes itself with its layout and personnel.
The Gran Kuningan district is an epicenter for luxury hotels, shopping centers and great city experience with great shops, and restaurants . The hotel is a tower of 48 floors covered in a modern looking blue hue of glass and steel. Security is tight as it is in most Jakarta hotels, but the checkpoints are staffed by extremely friendly personnel. The experience of personalized care and friendliness does not stop here. Staff throughout the hotel from cuisine services to the spa and the front desk are attentive and anticipatory.
There are 333 accommodations overall within the hotel, this includes a Presidential Suite, 3 Ritz-Carlton Suites, 31 Mayfair Suites, two Grand Spa Terrace Villas, as well as 296 spacious guest rooms and club level rooms. There is an elevated outdoor pool and garden which is connected to a vast spa area filled with treatment rooms (with very well priced treatments) as well as the executive lounge and level.
The rooms are comfortably furnished with a blend of traditional rich looking furniture, carpentry, accessories and decor. The look is traditional and has a modern take at the same time with sharp corners, innovative technology and high functioning space for comfortable bathrooms, walk in closets and plush beds. Even the standard rooms seem grand with a sofa, reclining chair and work space around the living area. Amenities such as coffee and tea are available and replaced regularly with daily cleaning and turndown services.
