My wife and I held our wedding reception at Hotel Aryaduta and the hotel and staff surpassed all of our expectations. To start the reception hall was exquisitely decorated in the colors we had chosen for our wedding. All the floral arrangements were beautifully displayed and there was a lovely ice sculpture with our initials and a heart at the back of the room. Everything was very hassle free, we basically just showed up and enjoyed our reception. The food was excellent. They prepared a special pre dinner meal for the wedding party which was essential because my wife and I didn't have a chance to eat during the reception. The hotel also provided private rooms for the additional hair and makeup before the reception and facilitated our Tea Pay. The food itself was fantastic. The goat we ordered was probably the best goat I have ever eaten. The best part about the service at our reception was I barely even noticed they were there, which was very nice because it allowed us to focus on enjoying family and friends. We were also very happy with the marketing representative Dennis. He provided excellent service during the weeks and months leading up to our reception including giving us a bonus upgrade to the room. Additionally we were pleasantly surprised when we returned to our room after the reception to find the bathtub had been filled with rose petals and there was a complimentary bottle of champagne next to the bed. Just a couple negative things to point out, my parents complained about an issue with the hot water which was eventually resolved. Also the view from our room looked out on a dirty river and dirty houses, not that appealing, but to be fair that is the view from most hotel rooms in Jakarta. And lastly we are fairly certain we had a couple wedding crashers who snuck in for a free meal at the reception. I don't necessarily blame the hotel for that as we had our own reception girls, but I think in the future requiring guests to know the name of the couple before being allowed into the hotel might help fix this issue. Overall we had a great experience with this hotel and would definitely recommend it to other couples who are planning their wedding.
