Yet another addition to Jakarta’s hospitality landscape is Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim by Marriott International. The hotel was launched in August 2017 and is the first Aloft that ever set foot in Indonesia.

“Jakarta is a pulsating metropolis with a vibrant social scene,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand & marketing, Asia-Pacific, Marriott International. “The new Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is bound to become a buzzing hub for global travelers and locals to connect over great live music from up-and-coming bands.”


Located in Central Jakarta area, the capital’s central business district, the hotel is perfectly suited for business travelers and globetrotters alike. It features 180 rooms that boast urban and locally influenced design. The works of Indonesian artists such as Nugraha Pratama and Nur Cahyono that show Jakarta’s rich culture and heritage are present in the guest rooms and public areas. When it comes down to business, Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is equipped with a meeting space that includes eight conference rooms, with a total area of 1,507 square feet.

As for the dining scene, there are delicious cocktails with a touch of traditional ingredients available at WXYZ Bar. Their two must-try beverages are 45 Bullet that has galangal added into the mix and Milky Cigrass, a concoction of Pontianak oranges, lemongrass, homemade cinnamon syrup and fresh milk.


Meanwhile, the hotel’s signature restaurant Nook serves authentic Indonesian food like ayam bakar seruni (grilled marinated chicken with coriander sweet soya reduction, chili relish and vegetables).

For those who are always on the go, there’s Re:fuel that provides light meals 24/7.

Finally, for guests who want to stay healthy and in-shape while traveling, the hotel has a fully equipped fitness center called re:charge and an outdoor swimming pool.
