One of Southeast Asia’s largest cities, Jakarta’s estimated population is more than 10 million people – and more than 28 million live within its metropolitan area.
Fanning out from around Merdeka (Freedom) Square, which contains the gold-tipped landmark of the National Monument, Jakarta provides a powerful contrast between Western-style skyscrapers, modern urban lifestyles and traditional Indonesian culture, offering visitors fascinating history, excellent shopping and exciting nightlife. With its strategic location, Jakarta is also the principal gateway to discovering the rest of Indonesia.
A prominent landmark on Jalan Gatot Subroto, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is ideally placed in South Jakarta, offering direct access to Sudirman Central Business District, close proximity to Mega-Kuningan and easy access to the international airport. The Hotel is the cornerstone of the most sophisticated office tower to open in Jakarta – award-winning architectural masterpiece Capital Place, which offers world-class facilities.
Please note that passports must be valid for a minimum of six months from the date of arrival for entry into Indonesia. Please check with your local Indonesian government representative for visa requirements.
