Those looking for a lavish inner-city escape should look no further than the Alila SCBD Jakarta, making its much anticipated debut on 6 February 2019. Located right next to the Indonesia Stock Exchange, this five-star hotel is placed in the heart of the city’s most dynamic retail and business district, comprised of 227 trendy studios and suites.
With innovative event spaces, an outdoor pool, gym and spa, and a variety of world-class dining options, Alila SCBD Jakarta caters to all kinds of individuals. With unique design architecture courtesy of Bangkok firm IAW, the long podium and diamond shaped tower features a unique overlapping pattern of aluminum metal and canopies to create a sense of illusion for passers-by.
Minimalist interiors complement the sophisticated exterior, with original artworks specially commissioned for this cool urban escape. The ‘Orbital of Joy’ greets guests when they walk through the entrance, a contemporary piece by duo Indieguerillas representing a journey or continuous cycle. Dramatic installations inside are matched with aesthetic tile designs, inspired by South East Asian batik and textiles, depicting butterflies that symbolize long life, beauty, and elegance, or phoenixes that bring good fortune and opportunity. Vong Kitchen, Hakkasan, and Le Burger are restaurants inside that ooze American and European vibes, allowing guests to dine in style during their time at Alila SCBD Jakarta.
