The name Langham is synonymous with the word luxury. Two thousand twenty-one marks a very special year for the Langham brand; it will see the opening of their first property in Southeast Asia. The Langham Jakarta will officially open its doors on the 9th of September and boasts the highest infinity pool in the capital amongst its many other incredible features.
After years of anticipation, the Langham Jakarta will be opening its doors in the capital of Indonesia and is all set to become the city’s leading ultra-luxury hotel and lifestyle destination. One of the biggest plus points of this majestic 65-storey property will be its superb location. The Langham Jakarta sits within the new prestigious complex of District 8 at SCBD (Sudirman Central Business District), which will provide easy access to the city’s most important financial, cultural and entertainment centres.
“The opening of this beautiful hotel in Jakarta is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to delivering the very best product, facilities and service in this international gateway city,” said Brett Butcher, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group.
“Partnering with Indonesia’s premier developer Agung Sedayu Group, we have been able to create something truly remarkable to welcome our guests to one of the very best hotels in the world. We are taking luxury to new heights, and I couldn’t be prouder to include The Langham Jakarta to our collection.”
Designed by the Singapore-based Smallwood Reynolds Stewart Stewart (SRSS), The Langham Jakarta embodies classical design elements, effortlessly fusing glamour with urban sophistication.
Upon entering the arrival lobby on the ground floor, eyes will be drawn to the magnificent chandelier depicting 3,000 fluttering crystal butterflies, some of which are suspended by intricate wirework. Titled “Haven” by Lasvit, the renowned designers of dazzling bespoke light installations from the Czech Republic, the chandelier takes its inspiration from the Indonesian rainforests where butterflies fly freely, creating an ethereal aesthetic in the remarkable space.
The elaborate construct of Haven is evident in the beautiful champagne-coloured lattice that is reminiscent of a Monarch butterfly’s wings. On the 62nd floor at the Sky Lobby, a second but no less dramatic 10-meter high chandelier also by Lasvit commands the attention and admiration of the guests.
