Jakarta famously notorious for its array of buildings, people and traffic that related to its occupant that frequently dizzy and busy. Well, many people forget to leisure themselves in a right way. And now we just found the very convenient place for our leisure needs, a five stars boutique Hotel Gran Mahakam which seemed to capture our hearts. Located at Jl. Mahakam 1 no.6, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, it is a sophisticated area across the neighborhood of the business and commercial district in the heart of the widely popular South Jakarta where major shopping malls, restaurants and other entertainment are abound. The hotel attention to detail is gorgeously stunning and an exquisite architecture . That’s what we’re talking about after Neighbourlist team came and strolled around this five stars boutique Gran Mahakam Hotel. Thanks for Agoda Indonesia for made the check-in arrangement easier than we thought.

Launched at 14 February 1998, this hotel is under Mahakam Group and owned by Mr. Kahar Tjandra which is a reputable business player and a doctor in Indonesia who also producing a well known pharmaceuticals brand. You may find hotels with greater building size and astonishing details, but let’s go back to the idea of how some things that are smaller are more beautiful when details are well thought and designed.

Retaining much of the European’s characteristic in the outside, Gran Mahakam interior surprises with its vibrant color, sophisticated decoration and eclectic modern interior yet still with the touch of Victorian style. While the 158 rooms provide an elegant translation of design aesthetics and deserve mention, Gran Mahakam’s loudest brag is clearly its well-known selection of dish specially Indonesian food at Le Gran Cafe which they just recently awarded as Gastronomy Hotel 2015 and its SPA which also awarded as Country Winner “Best Luxury Hotel Spa” by World Luxury Spa Awards last year.

You can tell from our writing so far that we fell in love with this hotel, but that’s not all until you read this last paragraph. Gran Mahakam is the first and the only hotel in Indonesia that brought oxygen theraphy in hotel facilities, this services called Oxyluxe; an innovative solution to stay healthy by receiving 100% pure oxygen into the body in a comfortable and stylish air pressure chamber. Oxyluxe took time around 45 minutes treatment along with the foot massage inside the chamber with a very friendly and knowledgeable masseuse. Beside Oxyluxe, Gran Mahakam also have its finest SPA treatment at 6’th floor which previously mentioned as The Best Luxury Hotel Spa in Indonesia by World Luxury Spa Awards. The swimming pool took place on the same floor with a nice terrace and beautiful design, you can really feel the European building atmosphere there. For this hotel, we’re just thinking that in the end it’s all about good, old fashioned hospitality and a good atmosphere. For those of you who would like to stay at Gran Mahakam Hotel, you can visit Agoda Indonesia now and book yourself a room. I recommend grabbing the special KITAS or Indonesia residence weekend rate offer that is featured on the site since you may not find availability for the room type of your choice if you stay for a long period of time. Thus, I would highly advise you to get on the website and book early to avoid disappointments.
