Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta has opened in a 20-storey tower situated in the heart of the city’s commerce, entertainment and financial districts

The new hotel is the result of an international collaboration between architect César Pelli, interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud and landscape architect Bill Bensley, and the result is a modern design masterpiece in the heart of fast-paced Jakarta.

The light-filled modern building containing Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta was created by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and represents a new-look, contemporary aesthetic for the firm. Inside, public and private spaces are carefully-curated with a collection of works by contemporary and historic artists, paying tribute to the cultural heart of Indonesia.

In the lobby, guests are enveloped by the impressive interiors that evoke a feeling of elegance, while retaining a sense of the contemporary. Each of the 125 guest suites reference the international culture of the city including the Dutch influence of the 17th Century.

A range of options are available for dining in the hotel. The dominant design featurse of the Nautilus Bar is the mural that depicts Jakarta's old Sunda Kelapa trading port and the backlit wall that displays various bottles. Throughout the space, an undulating carpet design continues the nautical theme, depicting the surrounding oceans and seas.

In a stark contrast, the design of chocolatier La Patisserie is very intimate, glamorous and feminine. The space is decorated in an elegant robin's egg blue, alluding to the interiors of an upmarket jewellery store, and perfectly befitting the boutique setting.
