Next time you’re whisked away to Jakarta for a business trip, you’ll have a new luxury hotel to throw on the hit list courtesy of the reliably upmarket St Regis Hotels & Resorts. Given the Indonesian capital already has a heavy presence from some of the world’s most coveted luxury brands, with hotels like Raffles, Four Seasons, The Langham and Ritz-Carlton, St Regis Jakarta arrives amidst some healthy competition and, much like those lauded properties, is offering a pretty attractive rate.

Rooms will start from around AU$400 per night, which for a brand like St Regis isn’t bad at all. This is more or less in line with what you’d find at some of the other luxury hotel brands mentioned above.

The lavish new 17-storey hotel opens this month, positioned within the city’s convenient Golden Triangle district nearby various high-end boutiques and Jakarta’s most important landmarks. Monas Tower, for example, is just a 20-minute drive from the hotel. Although you’d obviously need to factor in Jakarta’s famously rigid traffic jams.

From photos released so far, St Regis Jakarta looks blanketed with a sense of classicism in every corner. Think oversized chandeliers and swathes of marble in the common areas, leading to swanky restaurants like all-day eatery Bel Etage and pan-Asian kitchen J.A Restaurant.

There’s of course the requisite cocktail bar as well, dubbed The Drawing Room, with scope for live entertainment and a penchant for popping bottles of premium Champagne. In total, there are eight food and beverage concepts throughout the hotel, which should give you an idea of how large it is.

There are 164 luxury apartments with a penthouse on one side of the property and, for the hotel, 254 rooms and 28 signature suites in total spread across the 17 floors. All of these have been dressed to the nines to align with St Regis’ considerable reputation for soft design and generous living space. The pinnacle, the Crown Astor Suite, is supersized at just over 74-square-meters which includes a private balcony holding court over the city skyline.

Amenities are rounded out by the flagship St Regis spa with six treatment rooms and an extensive menu. The most premium offering here, for example, is called The Royal Indulgence and will net you a floral bath, facial, stress-relief massage and a granite scrub.

Whether or not St Regis Jakarta will stand the test of time remains to be seen. So many luxury names in South-East Asia fall victim to the safe stoic, cut-and-paste approach, relying on the wider brand rather than the individual property. Although from the photos it looks like the crack team of designers has done a reasonably good job at balancing that classic, grand sense of opulence with the kind of understated luxury that travellers seem to prefer nowadays.
