We've just returned back from a weeks stay at the Grand Hyatt, Jakarta. As we arrived, there was a security scan and check-in was a breeze. We were pleasantly surprised at the really large and spacious room which had plenty of sunlight and a marvellous view of the fountain. The hotel is connected to a mall, the Indonesia Plaza and one can access it via the lobby towards the left hand side. The mall has a lot to offer and the basement has quite a good selection of places for a quick meal. We enjoyed the steaks at 'Pepper Lunch' a couple of times. Coming back to Grand Hyatt, the service there was good whether it be housekeeping or breakfast or room sevice. B'fast buffet had quite a vast selection of food items including waffles and ice-cream and fresh juices, an egg/pancake/waffle station, continental and Indonesian cuisine.... but over the week we realised that the menu was almost the same everyday. Every sunday there is a huge gathering around the fountain with lots of music etc but the sound did not affect us at all.
Regarding the pool, it is an inviting oasis with the entire 5th floor converted into a place of lush greenery, a walking track and 2 pools....one for the kiddies in a sort of covered area. The place was almost secluded whenever we visited and we spent some enjoyable time just lounging around, having a quick swim and a small lunch. Absolutely relaxing... The Olympus spa is located on the same level and the staff there did a good job when I dropped in.
Jakarta is a shoppers paradise with malls all over the place. Just across the road is the Grand Indonesia mall which is really huge with a West n East Wing connected via a skybridge featuring plenty of eating places and a little away from it is the Thamarin city mall which was a pleasant find with a hypermarket and plenty of stalls selling stuff at really reasonable prices. Bargain with a smile and you can shop to your hearts content without finding a strain on your wallet.
Another thing worth the mention is the cheap cost of travelling by taxis....we have visited many countries on holiday but none except maybe Bangkok came any close to the taxi fares at Jakarta with regards to cost.
The morning we left, our cab was ready n waiting and check out too was very quick. Keep up the good work Grand Hyatt, you really serve with a smile!!!!!
