WHEN in Jakarta, staying in a city center hotel seems the best way to truly immerse in the madness of the concrete jungle.
In the thick of the action is Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel, a world-class property set amidst the ebb and flow of high-energy South Jakarta, a district of swanky office blocks, commercial properties, and shopping malls. Located off Jalan Sultan Iskandar Muda, the hotel is part of the Superblock Gandaria City complex and just steps away from Gandaria City Mall – a hub for trendy stores and restaurants.
If planning for a business event in Jakarta, the hotel’s location in the central business district is an ideal midpoint. Plus, the property is between Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) and Halim Perdanakusuma Airport (serving domestic and VIP flights), both of which are easily accessible via private transport organized by the hotel.
Rest assured your delegates will be well-rested in modern and business-like rooms with plenty of natural light that stream in from floor-to-ceiling windows, warm earth tones, and high ceilings for a feeling of openness and space. The entry-level Deluxe and Grand Deluxe Rooms have a sleek marble entrance and soft-grain Curupixa wood walls.
For access to the Sheraton Club Lounge, the Sheraton Club Rooms on the 19th and 20th floors showcase illuminated views of South Jakarta. Delegates can get comfortable on their leather armchairs, take care of business on glass-top tables and ergonomic swivel chairs, and enjoy a business meal for two at the dining space.
Thanks to its meeting-friendly services and amenities, trade shows and exhibitions are commonplace at the hotel. Throughout the length of any function, event planners will get full support from in-house staff to accommodate their every need, from seamless arrangements between variously sized venues to finer details such as pens for each delegate.
Choose from nine meeting spaces including a Meeting Room that can open up to an outdoor terrace for intimate cocktail parties. The pillar-free Grand Ballroom is especially popular for large exhibits and weddings, and has a 7.6-meter-high ceiling with LCD projector space, Bohemian crystal chandeliers, additional track lighting, and audio-visual technology.
Planners also have access to customized business event needs like audio-visual equipment, built-in screens, personalized menus, tape recorders, podiums, and wireless high-speed internet access for all attendees.
The hotel has also seen its fair share of weddings, what with ample space and impeccable in-house service. The Grand Ballroom can fit up to 1,000 guests while the outdoor pre-function room is ideal for pre-reception cocktails and registration. The Meeting Room can also be used for pre-wedding events such as rehearsal dinners and bridesmaid luncheons.
The Indonesian catering menu is particularly exciting, especially if you opt for the gado-gado salad, which staff will assemble live in front of guests. Otherwise, couples can also go for continental and American buffets or Chinese course meals complete with appetizers, vegetarian options, and dessert. Of course, the chef is happy to customize menus based on couples’ preferences.
Whether to organize a travel trade show or exchange your vows, the team at Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel are tried-and-tested experts at handling large groups.
