Southeast Asian cultures inspire new Four Seasons Jakarta

by Jane Kitchen | 05 Jul 2016

Four Seasons has opened a hotel in Jakarta’s Central Business District at the all-new Capital Place, an award-winning architectural landmark by Cesar Pelli.

The hotel features a spa that takes its inspiration from Southeast Asian cultures woven together with global influences. Facilities include eight treatment rooms, two couple’s suites, a hammam, relaxation lounge, spa shop, a 24-hour fitness centre and an outdoor pool on the fifth-floor rooftop.

A beauty salon, dedicated nail bar and gentlemen’s barbershop will be added in the near future.

Interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud worked on the 125-suite hotel, taking her inspiration from Jakarta’s long-established position on the global stage, its commercial trading history, and the influence of many cultures on its character – in particular, Indonesia’s Dutch colonial period.

The hotel’s lobby features soaring ceilings and a grand staircase lit by a crystal chandelier. The colour palette, materials and finishes, furnishings and lighting reflect a classical European aesthetic.

The Four Seasons Jakarta also presents a curated collection of works by contemporary and historic Indonesian artists, themed around the city and depicting its landmarks, history and culture.

Landscape architect Bill Bensley worked to create an element of urban resort style within the city’s financial and business hubs, and features lush outdoor spaces with exotic flora, water features and resort-like terraces and open-air rooms.

The hotel also includes several dining options, more than 1,800sq m (20,000sq ft) of function space, a Grand Ballroom and a Garden Terrace.
