Blending Indonesian heritage with eclectic design, The Orient Hotel Jakarta offers an attractive environment for a staycation in the capital, as The Jakarta Post found out when it was invited to stay there from March 5 to 6. After a week of stressful activities, it feels only right to take the entire family away from home to relax and refresh over a weekend. Located on Jl. Sudirman in Jakarta’s Central Business District, The Orient Hotel Jakarta offers exactly that, with convenient access to shopping malls and business centers, allowing guests to enjoy some time out with loved ones without leaving the city. One step into the lobby shows that the hotel has a unique character: two enormous rattan chairs are arranged on one side, with statement lamps made of seashells standing in the corners.

The hotel is designed by Bill Bensley, an American architect and interior designer with a studio in Bali, whose clients include five-star hotels worldwide. Bensley is also known to incorporate environmental or cultural elements in eclectic touches to his designs. For the Orient Hotel, Bensley highlighted Indonesia’s diverse heritage through pop art twists. Oversized Javanese and Balinese batik prints adorn the walls, for instance, while wood-paneled floors, including in the rooms, lend a rustic ambiance. (The Jakarta Post)

Located in Jakarta, a 15-minute walk from Pacific Place, The Orient Hotel Jakarta provides air-conditioned rooms and a bar. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a 24-hour front desk and room service, along with free WiFi. The hotel features an indoor pool and a concierge service.

All guest rooms at the hotel are equipped with a seating area. Guest rooms will provide guests with a desk and a coffee machine.

Guests at The Orient Hotel Jakarta can enjoy a buffet breakfast.
