The Langham, Jakarta marks The Langham brand’s first property in Southeast Asia, which comes complete with a culinary partnership with Tom Aikens and the highest infinity pool in the city.
Strategically located within the new prestigious complex of District 8 at Sudirman Central Business District, in close proximity to Jakarta’s financial, cultural and entertainment centres, the 65-storey hotel is designed by the Singapore-based Smallwood Reynolds Stewart Stewart, which fuses glamour with urban sophistication.
Upon entering the arrival lobby on the ground floor, all eyes will be drawn towards the magnificent chandelier depicting 3,000 fluttering crystal butterflies, some of which are suspended by intricate wire work. Titled “Haven” by Lasvit, the renowned designers of dazzling bespoke light installations from the Czech Republic, the chandelier takes its inspiration from the Indonesian rainforests where butterflies fly freely thereby creating an ethereal aesthetic in the remarkable space.
The elaborate construct of Haven is evident in the beautiful champagne-coloured lattice reminiscent of a Monarch butterfly’s wings. On the 62nd floor at the Sky Lobby, a second but no less dramatic 10-meter high chandelier also by Lasvit commands the attention and admiration of the guests.
All other senses will be mesmerized by the curated collection of art throughout the hotel showcasing the finest works from Indonesian artists, painters and photographers which include John Martono, Hanafi, Jumaldi Alfi, Jay Subyakto, and Chaerul Umam.
The Langham features 223 guest rooms with majestic floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular views of the city, in-room entertainment complemented by smart technology, opulent marble bathrooms featuring rain showers and free standing soaking bathtubs.
