Conran and Partners’ elegantly crafted design of Park Hyatt Jakarta is a sumptuous retreat infused with Indonesian artistry, redefining luxury hospitality in the heart of Jakarta.

Park Hyatt hotels are defined by individuality and character, with an emphasis on a residential feel in the public areas, spacious guest bedrooms and suites inspired by prime residential architecture. Of the range of hotel brands under the Hyatt umbrella, Park Hyatt is the most luxurious and contemporary, with Conran and Partners interpretation in Jakarta inspired by the natural beauty and traditional craft of Indonesia, combined with the contemporary diversity and culture of modern Jakarta.

Conran and Partners was appointed to design the interiors of the new-built Park Hyatt in Jakarta. Set within a landmark tower – developed by MNC Land and set in the centre of the Indonesian capital – the hotel occupies the first three and the uppermost 17 floors of the 37-storey mixed-use tower.

The design includes the interiors of over 220 guest rooms and suites, a variety of food and beverage spaces, a pool, fitness centre and full-service spa plus a three-storey function and ballroom facility. It also seeks to interpret the essence of Park Hyatt to create a luxurious sense of place for guests, combining inspiration from the multi-cultural aspects of Jakarta and the natural beauty and traditional crafts of Indonesia.

For many people, the city is the first point of arrival or only touchpoint in Indonesia, so the practice endeavoured to bring some of Indonesia’s fascinating variety into the hotel to connect the visitor to the country and its culture.

At the core of the design narrative lies a homage to Indonesia’s lush rainforests, with each floor of the hotel artfully mirroring the journey from the dark, earthy tones of the forest floor to the ethereal lightness of the canopy above. This gradient of hues, transitioning from darkness to lightness, creates a dynamic sense of progression as guests ascend through the hotel, culminating in breathtaking views of the city skyline.

Conran and Partners’ vision was to create an immersive experience that introduces guests not only to the vibrant city of Jakarta but also to the diverse tapestry of Indonesia. Drawing inspiration from the country’s natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, the design approach was grounded in the ethos of local craftsmanship and materials. Collaborating with artisans and consultants, Conran and Partners curated a palette that celebrates Indonesia’s artistic legacy, from native timbers to intricate Ikat patterns and traditional wedding adornments.

Central to the Park Hyatt experience is the concept of timeless luxury with a residential touch. From intimate nooks like the Library in the Sky Lobby to the convivial atmosphere of the Conservatory, every space is meticulously crafted to evoke an elevated concept of home. The Cellar Bar beckons guests to unwind in the evenings, while the adjacent veranda offers an enchanting setting for starlit conversations.

Ascending to the higher floor, guests are greeted by a myriad of tantalising spaces, each offering a distinct yet cohesive design language. The top two floors are taken up by a destination dining experience with a Japanese flavour. From the relaxed ambience of the sake bar to the intimate charm of the tatami private dining rooms, Kita unfolds as a culinary journey through the rich tapestry of Japanese cuisine. At Kita restaurant, diners are invited to experience the culinary theatre, with front-row seats to the artistry of the kitchen. The lower floor boasts the Kita Bar, a lively hub where guests can interact with bartenders amidst live entertainment DJs and incredible city views from the large terrace, which provides an oasis for savouring panoramic vistas of the city skyline.

Throughout Park Hyatt Jakarta, every space seamlessly flows into the next, offering a cohesive journey that celebrates the diversity of Indonesia whilst ensuring each area retains its unique identity. Whether indulging in a leisurely afternoon tea or a gourmet Japanese feast, guests are enveloped in an atmosphere of refined luxury and unparalleled hospitality, setting the stage for unforgettable experiences in the heart of Jakarta.
