At the heart of the golden triangle, in the vibrant metropolis of Jakarta, discover luxuriously spacious, light and art-filled rooms and suites in Raffles Jakarta’s spectacular high-rise. Blending an Indonesian aesthetic with modern technology and supreme comfort. The rooms are infused with the dazzling creative influence of the renowned local artist Hendra Gunawan. The artist’s fluidity of movement and love of colour can be found in the daring palettes and designs used throughout the hotel’s magnificent interiors. There are also installations articulating subjects from Gunawan’s paintings, especially the charmof rural life and the beauty of nature. His signature artistic styles are the intricate detailing of old trees and branches and the bold curvature of people’s bodies.

The tour finishes, and guests are invited to enjoy signature mocktails, Jakarta Sling, at The Writers Bar, established in homage to the legendary authors who, for over a century, made Raffles Singapore their home; the vibrant palette of artist Hendra Gunawan enlivens the Writers Bar.


The museum is the first to champion art education in Indonesia with a collection of modern and contemporary Indonesian and international art. The museum is included in the World’s 100 Greatest Places 2018, released by Time magazine. It displays around 90 works from a collection totaling 800 modern Indonesian and contemporary artworks worldwide, including ‘Infinity Mirrored Room’ by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and The Soul Trembles by Chiharu Shiota.


Thanks to the vast, diverse Indonesian archipelago, restaurants and bars here take “locavore” and “rustic-luxe” to the next level. Some of the region’s most mindful chefs, bartenders and menus are found in this romantic country. Here’s our selections for Jakarta:


Kaum, meaning “clan” or “tribe” in Indonesian, is an authentic Indonesian restaurant. Embarked on an exotic culinary expedition, travelling across the archipelago to learn about the indigenous cooking methods, exotic ingredients, and authentic flavours of  Indonesia’s tribal communities. Both the menu and ambience at Kaum showcase genuine flavours that accurately reflect Indonesia’s heritage.


Sequestered on Sequis Tower’s ground floor, August lures enthusiastic diners with locally infused contemporary fares and amiable hospitality. Guests can enjoy the food both a la carte and through a tasting menu experience. The chefs’ European-based culinary backgrounds shine, while their Indonesian upbringings provide unique touches to the menu. Guided by August’s flavour ‘database’ of the market, local ingredients and happy mistakes made along the way, Chef Hans has whipped up an innovative range of snacks and dishes that break away from one-dimensional tastes while remaining comfortingly familiar.

The menu will continue to expand over time, allowing diners to come and be surprised with each visit. Just like a visit to a friend’s home in August, one can expect an exchange of friendly banter squeezed between meticulously crafted dishes to while away the evening in style.

August Jakarta has been named the American Express One To Watch Award Winner ahead of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant 2023.

Hospitality has always been my passion, which led me to pursue a Tourism and Hotel major at the University. Graduating in 2014, I was blessed to join Raffles Jakarta as their pre-opening team. I developed an interest in Concierge, which allowed me to engage with guests and become the point of contact for their arrangements and needs during their stay, including special request assistance. Raffles is one of the luxury heritage brands known for its legendary services, Raffles Butler and Royal Host, and, of course, its Concierge. Raffles strives to create a world of beauty, wonder, and inspiration for its guests, employees, and communities. It is loved by generations past, present and future.
