Every St. Regis hotel celebrates the culture and identity of its destination, and the design of The St. Regis Jakarta, conceptualised by the award-winning New York-based interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud, was inspired by Indonesia’s rich musical traditions.

Throughout the hotel, the general source of inspiration is music and performance. The lobby, for example, features a kinetic chandelier entitled ‘Sound of Light’, created by celebrated Czech glassmaker Lasvit, which is synchronised with music by Indonesian composer Andi Rianto. The installation produces a shimmering light that dances across surfaces and spaces, showcasing the distinctive soundscapes of Indonesia and creating a glamorous welcome for arriving guests.

Outdoor spaces, meanwhile, including the hotel’s entrance and swimming pool, feature artworks by renowned landscape architect Bill Bensley, with the theme of ‘Discovery’.

“We are delighted to expand our brand presence in Indonesia with the debut of The St. Regis Jakarta, our second property in this vibrant country,” said George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “The St. Regis brand’s founding family, the Astors, were known as visionaries of their time, embracing change and innovation while maintaining a strong sense of history and heritage. It is in this spirit that we welcome guests to enjoy The St. Regis Jakarta, and we look forward to providing impeccable service and exquisite experiences in Indonesia’s capital city.”

The St. Regis Jakarta features 282 guestrooms, including 28 spacious suites ranging from 75 to 187 square metres, each featuring a private balcony. Meticulously created by the G.A. Design team, the guestrooms reflect contemporary luxury and feature thoughtful touches throughout, such as custom-made cushions accented with embedded batik motifs by Indonesian designer, Iwan Tirta. Guests will also enjoy the St. Regis Butler Service, a personalised signature offering that has been a hallmark of the brand for more than a century, ensuring that each guest’s individual preferences are understood and anticipated at every turn.

Exceptional culinary journeys are presented through the hotel’s distinct culinary venues. The Drawing Room, located near the arrival lobby, is an elegant  lounge where guests can experience the signature traditions of St. Regis, such as Afternoon Tea and Champagne sabrage. The all day dining Bel Étage celebrates Indonesia’s multicultural heritage with a collection of Indonesian dishes along with western, Asian and Pan-Asian cuisines, from timeless classics to the Chef’s personal recipes. Located in the heart of the hotel, Rosé is a deli where guests can enjoy artisanal coffees, teas, pastries and cold cuts in a casual setting. The Pool Bar is a quiet spot that invites escape from the rush of urban life. The hotel’s signature St. Regis Bar, unique and different at every St. Regis hotel around the world, features a striking mural by Indonesian artist Eddy Susanto, which captures the interactive inspirations between art and jazz, and correlates the rhythm, energy and spirit of the historical development of jazz in Indonesia.
