iD Award Winner – Best New Hotel Design: Raffles Jakarta

In celebration of our 14th anniversary, we are extending our appreciation to those who have made significant contributions to the improvement of design in Indonesia by presenting Indonesia Design Best Design Awards. This is Raffles Hotel Jakarta, the winner of the Best New Hotel Design award.

The legacy of Indonesian artist Hendra Gunawan is alive at Raffles Jakarta. His artworks heavily influenced the classic and elegant interiors of the hotel that is located next to Ciputra Artpreneur in Kuningan. The lobby’s deep burgundy carpet looks like it comes straight out of his works, the high ceilings and ivory-hued marbles compliment the massive mosaic reproduction of Gunawan’s “Menyusui 2” painting placed in the lobby.

The Writers Bar presents interesting décor of Gunawan’s artwork in rectangular window-like wall panels, that looks like an Advent calendar. The custom-made carpets depict blue tranquil waters filled with lively fish.

Meanwhile, the guest rooms represent the artist’s retreat. Gunawan’s strong colours are visible in the furniture, a stark contrast from warm beige stone and wood combined within the wall surfaces and flooring. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide enough natural light during the day and allow visitors to enjoy views of Jakarta’s skyline and the hotel’s gardens that pay tribute to the late painter.
