Threaded by thirteen major waterways, Jakarta’s urban sprawl flows into neighboring districts, bordered by Jakarta Bay and the Java Sea. Jakarta hotel guests will be thrilled by the bustling, lively mixture of old and new, East and West.
Try hunting for treasures at Jalan Surabaya, the outdoor antique market in Central Jakarta; for lunch, you can taste some tasty regional cuisine at a Padang restaurant, Indonesia’s version of an all-you-can-eat buffet. Ancol Amusement Park has plenty of attractions and entertainment opportunities, including an open-air seller’s area.
You can see traditional Indonesian, colonial Dutch and modern architecture––all within sight of your Jakarta hotel room. Visit the Angke Mosque, built over 150 years ago, in typical Javanese style with a two-level roof. For a small donation, you can take a guided tour of Istiqlal Mosque––the largest in Southeast Asia. From there, ride the elevator to the top of the National Monument to Indonesian Independence for the best views of the Jakarta.
Our accommodations are also convenient for nature lovers in search of an outdoor adventure. Ancol Jakarta Bay City, Jakarta’s largest recreation park, offers opportunities for swimming and fishing; but if the weather isn’t on your side, there’s also an aquarium, bowling and golf.
