Jakarta, Indonesia is not famous for their tourist spots but one thing I discovered in this city is they have a lot of interesting hotels. Since 2015, my husband always visits Indonesia and for the past business trips, he stayed at Hotel Mulia Senayan and Shangri-la Hotel. I thought Hotel Mulia Senayan is the only award-winning hotel in Jakarta but when my husband mentioned to me that he will stay in The Dharmawangsa, I immediately searched for this hotel.
The Dharmawangsa Jakarta is another award-winning hotel in Jakarta, their Bimasena Spa has officially awarded a Conde Nast Johansens Readers’ Award in the year 2016. This luxury hotel is situated on 4.2 hectares of land in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta. It is 5 km away from Central Business District so that is the reason why my husband’s boss loves this hotel because it is near the office. It is also 35km away from the airport so traveling won’t be a problem.
Who would ever think that there is an oasis in the midst of the city? If you want a peaceful, relaxing and quiet place, this is a good choice. It offers a big room with a balcony too. The executive room which is the smallest room measured 66sq meters. Woah! Mas malaki pa sa bahay namin, #tinyliving.
This is the room. It has a desk, television set, and couch.
The bathroom is spacious too, it has a separate bathtub, shower, and two sinks, so one for a woman and one for man. First time to see a “his” and “her” sink in a hotel.
Sosyal din ang toiletries nila. The toiletries brand is White River Falls by Waterl’eau. It is a luxury bath cosmetics from Belgium.
One more thing, the room includes a 24 hours butler service. My husband always irons his clothes to remove the wrinkle (gusot sa pagkakatupi), so he called the hotel to borrow iron and iron board because it is not available in his room. But the staff informed him that there is no available iron at that moment, but they offered to get his clothes and they will be the one to iron it at no extra cost. So they picked-up and delivered my husband’s clothes the following day before he ate his breakfast. #extramile
Breakfast at Dharmawangsa Jakarta Restaurant
The room includes a complimentary buffet breakfast. Their restaurant is very different from other hotels because it seems like you are eating in a fine dining restaurant. The restaurant was not crowded so you will enjoy your quiet time.The buffet spread was scattered in different rooms, it offers traditional Indonesian, Asian and Western cuisine.
My husband only stayed for two nights so he wasn’t able to explore the whole hotel, but the hotel has different restaurants, gym, spa and wellness, and an indoor and outdoor pool. Service is also good, they know how to make you feel special.
