Raffles Jakarta is linked to the new Ciputra Artpreneur Centre, a landmark development celebrating art and theatre, which opened last year.

The hotel, the interior of which features works by the Indonesian artist Hendra Gunawan, has meeting spaces ranging from a private boardroom to the 26,909 square feet Dian Ballroom. Other facilities include a bar that re-interprets the Writers Bar, a much-loved feature of Raffles Singapore, to be an "oasis" of Indonesian art, history and literature. It is inspired by Gunawan’s love of nature and colour.

Dining options include the Arts Cafe and the informal poolside eatery Navina, which derives its name from the Indonesian word for ‘fresh’ and will serve light meals and cocktails in tropical gardens. Two more restaurants will open later this year.  

A spa, also opening later this year, will feature six treatments rooms, while the hotel will also offer a choice of swimming pools, a fitness centre, a yoga terrace, tennis courts and a 300-metre jogging track through a Hendra Gunawan inspired garden on the 14th floor.
 
Peter French, president of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, said: "Jakarta is the economic and cultural seat of one of Asia’s fastest growing economies and we are delighted to be part of this growth. With Raffles Jakarta, we are bringing to Indonesia an authentic expression of Raffles Hotels & Resorts’ philosophy – the hotel is a combination of both Indonesian and global influences that gives it a unique sense of place."

The hotel’s opening brings Raffles’ portfolio to 12 hotels and resorts. There are plans for further openings in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, Sharm-el-Sheikh in Egypt and Warsaw, Poland, over the next few years.
