A leafy oasis in hectic South Jakarta, The Dharmawangsa remains the capital's premier haven of understated luxury in a country club setting. Catch glimpses of celebrity visitors at the Jakarta Restaurant while sipping a chocolate martini in the lounge—or by Dharmawangsa's shaded pool. Designed to recall 1920s Jakarta, accommodations are graciously appointed with furniture and objet d'art from across the Indonesian archipelago, plus marble baths and butler service. All
rooms, but not every suite, include terrace balconies overlooking the vast grounds. Concessions to the 21st century include high-speed Internet and a modern gym. The spa draws raves for its treatments.
