All the rave reviews here are true after all! Was a little skeptical and worried that it was not to be as this was a pure relaxation trip for myself and partner as we knew all about the city's jams and were not intending to travel too much around in town other than attending a close friend's wedding.
Where should I start? The rooms are perfect, spick and span, I like carpets in my rooms and they were clean and smell free, there was everything you needed in the room, bathrobes, bathroom slippers, toiletries, hairdryer, a day bed, couch or whatever you call it, a desk for the business ppl whom need to work, fast and reliable WIFI... and the list goes on... See the pictures for yourself.
I stayed in both the deluxe and premier room just to try out. The extra money spent on the premier room was worth it just for the cool bathtub and the view of the bath tub from the bed. Oh wait, that's if you had a galfriend as hawt as mine. ;) Just kidding, now, if the extra money is not much of an issue for you and you're travelling with your lovely partner, do go for the premier room.
Now the food... Nothing to gripe about seriously, even if I were to nit pick... Good mix of local and international food, super fresh salmon, very tasty gado gado salad, if anything, it was actually coz local food was a tad salty for me. This of course is no fault at all of the hotel's. Staff were prompt to serve, served with a smile, quick to clear and offer service...
As for the general service standards, I must say they seriously qualify for 5 star standard! Everywhere one walks, you are made to feel important and valued, once there is eye contact, all staff will definitely greet you. Trust me, I tried and also remarked to my girlfriend. Now, be a good guest and acknowledge their smiles and greetings to make their day as well! =)
I will definitely be back here to use the pool and gym which is quite a shame I didn't had time to use this time round. I'm expecting some vouchers for free stay from the management for their ongoing promo of some buy 2 nights and get 1 night free or something...
P.S. Dear management, if you're reading this, thumbs up for the good service provided during my stay again. I probably never have to switch hotels when I'm back in Jakarta again. Keep up the good work!
Soemthing to note, I was staying during my last night at the premier room on the 11th storey, and my room was at the end of the corridor. Our adjouring room's main door was left unlocked and slightly ajar. Out of curiousity, we pushed the door open to peek in, and it was rather spooky to say the least. Dark and kinda untidy like a staff's temporary lodging or something. Adding to the fact that adjourning room are linked by a common door within, it did give me and my gf a little bit of the creeps. Maybe one horror film too many for us. It didn't affect my stay too much at all though, but yup, just something of note perhaps. Cheers!
