The Grand Hyatt Jakarta

There are a few qualities about the Grand Hyatt Jakarta that positions it ahead of the surfeit of luxury properties in Jakarta.

To me, the most important is that it is integrated with Plaza Indonesia, a gargantuan shopping mall that has a basement grocery store, bakeries, as well as an array of restaurants. Yes, it has it has Bally, Givenchy, Armani–the temples of consumption–but direct access to the more practical amenities are crucial for safety reasons in case one needs a quick dash to the grocery store grab for some daily essential or to a bakery for quick sustenance.
 

 

 
The other strength of the Grand Hyatt Jakarta is its fitness center. It has one of the best, most comprehensive, and wonderfully spacious hotel gyms I’ve come across yet. The gym–called Club Olympus–is open to non-guest members, but I’ve never seen it crowded. The pool, likewise, is huge, with swimming lanes as well as a play area for children.

 

 

 

 

I’ve also had the opportunity to taste the fares at all-day dining Grand Cafe, and the food is above average.

The rooms are spacious, featuring a neutral, clean-lined decor that cannot possibly offend (although one might on the other hand say they lack character). Room service is diligent and attentive, and generally, for a large all-rounder hotel that aims to cater to business as well as leisure travelers, the Grand Hyatt Jakarta does a creditable job.
