Located in the tranquil Menteng area in the heart of Jakarta’s bustling central business district, Park Hyatt Jakarta opened on July 8, 2022, marking the highly anticipated debut of the Park Hyatt brand in Indonesia. The hotel offers a distinctive collection of culinary, leisure and wellness experiences as well as unique event venues for bespoke celebrations, delivering the epitome of luxury in Jakarta.

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 is unashamedly contemporary while combining the urban modernity of Jakarta with the natural heritage of the country it represents – a symbol of modern Jakarta with the heart of Indonesia at its core,” shared Tina Norden, Partner at Conran and Partners. “For instance, the wealth of natural resources found in Indonesia’s 17,000+ islands inspired our material palette, from using copper, of which Indonesia is a prime exporter, to warm timbers and black stone referencing the lava of the many volcanos on the islands.” 

Contemporary Design, with Indonesia at its Core 

Inspired by the beauty of the Indonesian rainforests, traditional crafts and indigenous natural materials, the interior design of Park Hyatt Jakarta uses elements such as lava stone and copper as well as handwoven ikat textile motifs, intricate wood carvings and shields which are used to create a welcoming oasis of calm and elegance. The visual journey through the property symbolizes the layers of a rainforest, starting with a richer, darker color scheme on the lower floors that calls to mind the forest’s understory.

Reflective of branches wrapped around the trunk with dappled light filtered through the canopy, the palette becomes lighter on the higher floors with warm tones incorporated throughout. Through the atmospheric transition and evocative design, guests will be transported from Jakarta’s urban bustle into a tranquil, sophisticated and comforting environment with a strong sense of location overlooking the city. 

A private art collection, curated by Indonesia’s acclaimed Hadiprana design consultants, seamlessly merges traditional heritage with sleek contemporary designs, creating a subtle contrast between Jakarta’s modern urbanity and the country’s ancient natural environment. Guests can also admire specially commissioned works by celebrated Indonesian artist John Martono, whose swirling abstracts blend painting and hand embroidery on silk. European inspirations are also evident.

One of the hotel’s most striking features is a series of hand-blown crystal installations and chandeliers, made up of thousands of delicate orbs that hover like clouds, reflective of rainfall and starlit skies. A nod to the archipelago’s diverse cultural heritage, the guestrooms feature exquisite traditional Indonesian crowns made from copper, which is also widely applied as an interior accent for a subtle touch of splendor.
