Fodor's Expert Review The Dharmawangsa
Jalan Brawawijaya 26, Jakarta, Jakarta Raya, 12160, Indonesia
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.
- refuge from Jakarta's rat race
- tastefully elegant rooms
