From a world-renowned afternoon tea, to the highest infinity pool in the city, The Langham, Jakarta boasts 65 storeys of ultra-luxury hotel and lifestyle experiences under one roof

Celebrating its first anniversary this September, the brand’s first Southeast Asian location is now an integral cornerstone of the Sudirman Central Business District, bringing British heritage and timeless excellence to Indonesia’s capital.

The Langham Hotels and Resorts are globally recognised for their intuitive service, urban sophistication and award-winning culinary expertise, and The Langham, Jakarta is no exception, with its 223 rooms, 13 suites and a 4,176 square foot presidential suite, which is the height of luxury.

With smart-tech systems, private lift access, personal butler service and panoramic city views, the 60th-floor, highest tier suite is the epitome of refined luxury. The opulent Italian marble bathroom comes complete with an oversized bathtub, twin vanities and an overhead rain shower. Guests enjoy spacious and contemporary living areas with two separate bedrooms, walk-in wardrobes, a fully equipped kitchen, an elegant dining room and a writer’s corner. Other impressive highlights include an in-suite gym with personal trainer on demand and access to The Langham Club just one floor below.

For those seeking respite and relaxation for the body and mind, Chuan Spa offers wellness experiences and treatments guided by the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The spa houses a serene, meditative space with tranquil private treatment rooms, an indoor heated infinity pool and the recently opened Barberia. With the feel of a private gentlemen’s club, Barberia offers traditional men’s grooming services alongside signature treatments, overlooking breathtaking views of the city skyline.

The new must-visit venues for social events, weddings, high-level business lunches and more, the hotel’s myriad drinking and dining options include Tom’s, in partnership with celebrity chef Tom Aikens; and a rooftop bar. With three Michelin stars in Hong Kong, T’ang Court is soon to make its Southeast Asian debut. Imbued with classic Chinese glamour, with 154 seats and six private dining rooms, the Cantonese restaurant is set to open on the 61st floor.

The Langham is known as the first hotel to serve afternoon tea in 1860s London, and its legacy continues in Jakarta at Alice, a cafe inspired by Lewis Carroll’s famous wonderland. Housed inside a picturesque dining emporium, Alice serves up modern French food and pastries throughout the day.

There’s no doubt that The Langham’s new and exceptional experiences will continue to deliver the brand’s modern sophistication and timeless glamour, to locals and travellers alike, all within Jakarta’s most vibrant district.
