No Paradise Lost at Shangri-La Jakarta

Simply put, the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta is paradise revisited.

From the moment you step into the lobby, you’re swept away to an exotic mixture of Japanese and Indonesian flair. One of the most striking features of Shangri-La is the lobby lounge. With natural lighting, Asian-inspired art, high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking an immaculately manicured lush green landscape of welcoming gardens and blue lagoons, it’s no small wonder why Shangri-La is one of the finest hotels in Jakarta.

Four international restaurants make it possible for your taste buds to travel the world throughout your stay. Set in classical Chinese décor, Shang Palace, Shangri-La’s signature restaurant, offers the best in Cantonese cuisine, serving delicious Cantonese-flavored seafood, meats, noodles and vegetables. Rosso, meanwhile, delivers a traditional Italian cuisine of pastas and veal dishes and seafood, in an intimate setting with a stunning wine list to compliment your meal. The clean lines of Shangri-La’s Nishimura restaurant present the delicious flavors of Japan in a serene ambiance of bamboo, water and stone while feeding you sashimi and decadent sushi creations. Make sure to try one of the sakes or wines with your signature dish. If you’re not quite sure what you want to eat, then perhaps a visit to SATOO is in order. Facing the lagoon oasis, SATOO’s menu of international Asian choices includes oxtail soup, Tandoori Chicken Tikka and home-smoked salmon. And after dinner, you can enjoy a drink at the Bar at Shangri-La, or BATS as it’s commonly referred, which also features New York style cuisine.

The beautiful butterfly-shaped lagoon pool in the garden oasis encourages guests to slip into the mystery of Shangri-La, while the spa calls to relax and rejuvenate the body. Featuring full-body treatments, including facials, massage, aromatherapy and reflexology, the spa is an oasis within an oasis. The fully appointed health club offers dramatic views of the city.

Shangri-La has a large business clientele and caters to the frequent business traveler, offering an array of amenities to make keeping up with business duties convenient. Guests will enjoy complimentary Internet access, a full service business center, access to meeting rooms and projectors.

Guest accommodations are decked out in traditional Javanese style. Dark woods and rich colors elegantly adorn spacious rooms of sweeping panoramic views offering the spectacular sight of Jakarta. Separate shower and soaking tub invite you to retreat and rest after a day of sightseeing and shopping in the city. Female travelers will find the specialty toiletry kit convenient. Business travelers will appreciate the full-size writing desk, international telephone, complimentary wireless Internet access and in room fax line.

Business or pleasure, the Shangri-La lives up to its otherworldly name.
