My family stayed at Raffles Jakarta for 5 days last week. Being very frequent travelers, we typically have super high expectations – and I have to say that Raffles Jakarta actually greatly exceeded our expectations.

First of all, the hotel is absolutely beautifully maintained. The grounds are immaculate and the room is incredibly clean. Everything looks brand new. The room itself is huge, we were very comfortable there with our two kids. The bathrooms are great for children – the bath is deep and shower has an option for either the handle or rain. One of my favorite things were the bathrobes – super comfortable. I appreciated that the room was quiet. Yes, we heard a bit of traffic from the road downstairs but we never heard any other guests.

Food was AMAZING. There is buffet for breakfast and dinner. Not only did they have all kinds of Western food that my kids enjoyed (and we always got extra stuff such as pancakes or eggs), there is plenty of Indonesian food to try. And lots of fresh fruits and veggies. For breakfast they always gave us freshly pressed juices to go, and dinners had several special entrees to try for each table. Room service has been great as well. Quality of food was outstanding – everything was fresh and very tasty. Being from the US, we especially enjoyed trying new foods and Raffles staff has been helpful in explaining the foods to us.

My kids very much enjoyed the pool and the playground. My husband was able to get a tennis lesson (all scheduled same day, very accommodating) and I tried Raffles spa for two treatments (both were great!). In general, every single person we met was incredibly accommodating. Even for basic things like late check-out or extra coffee delivered to the room, everyone was willing to help us. My two children absolutely loved the hotel too – we got a birthday cake (with a printed car on it, my son’s favorite!) the first day, some coloring books and puzzles the second day, and teddy bears in Indonesian outfits the last day. We also came back to the room to cookies and extra fruit.

Finally, I want to say special thanks to a couple of people. Our butler – Dani – was truly exceptional. He was so attentive to us. Jay at the pool bar (Navida) was awesome as well… he taught us a bit about the history of Indonesia and always made sure that we had enough food and drinks. Ikram (I hope I am spelling the name right) who helps Jay at the pool deserves a special thank you as well. Everyone was outstanding at the Raffles but those three individuals went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

What a really excellent service from the staff. I stay with my family during easter long weekend. Thank you for the hospitality! Especially Reza from housekeeping, Uli from concierge for helping me book a table for dinner. Joshua, Nina, Henry and Sandy, they served with heart and really take care us during dinner time. Taufika during breakfast time as well. Last but not least thanks for a fond farewell from Ferdi & Johanna. I will definitely come back :).

my girlfriend and i stayed here over the easter weekend. the exceptional service was seamless throughout our stay, from exiting the taxi when we first arrived to boarding our ride as we left. it was also a belated birthday treat, which they very kindly sent us a complimentary cake (whole cake mind you!).

we loved the breakfast spread; from the local dishes like semur daging, lontong sayur lodeh and braised tempeh to pancakes stuffed with granola and fruit, cheeses, fruit compotes and halal dim sum, we were spoiled for choice.

while the entire service crew was warm and friendly, we would like to especially thank johana, pamela, and agus for making our weekend getaway a memorable one!

I stayed with my husband to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. The check in process was going smoothly until our check out date was excellent. They have a wonderful swimming pool with a nice staff. Many thanks to all of the staff there especially our Butler (Hendra, Fahmi, Dave, and Atika) who prepared us a romantic setup in our bedroom as well as our bathroom. Really love it!!!
