The hotel reflects Indonesia’s intricately layered diversity and takes inspiration from the vivid contrast between Jakarta’s modern urbanity and the country’s ancient natural environment. Park Hyatt Jakarta occupies the top 17 floors of the 37-story Park Tower in the center of the city’s financial and diplomatic district. The hotel’s surrounding area, Menteng, was originally conceived in the early 20th century as a garden city and is now known for its peaceful tree-lined streets, abundant greenery and elegant heritage architecture.

Park Hyatt Jakarta features 220 elegant, oversized rooms, including 36 suites. Guestrooms range from approximately 615 to 915 square feet (57 to 85 square meters), while the suites are from approximately 935 2,450 square feet (87 to 300 square meters).

On entering the rooms, guests are immediately welcomed with the view out of the full height and wide width windows, framed by a central corridor in the black stone, used in polished and textured finishes against a darker timber color. This dark central core contains the functional spaces such as a generous dressing room, a powder room and a luxurious pair of bathrooms – one on each side of the central passage. One has a generous bath and the other a spacious walk-in shower – both set off the dark stone floors and walls with a bright white feature vanity complemented by copper highlights.

The living spaces are bright and airy with an elegant, slatted screen separating the sleeping area from the working and relaxing spaces by the window. Bespoke glass and copper pendants frame the bed, and the desk is carved out of a tree trunk bringing the warmth of the local timber to the room. Two ikat patterned fabric panels frame the elevations to the bathrooms and a carved timber panel as well as a traditional intricate wedding head piece bringing in a subtle local flavor.
