Experience a Stay Unlike Any Other in Novotel Jakarta Gajah Mada with Indulgence Package

Experience a stay where the cultures of China and Indonesia converge. In contrast to Weltevreden, de Bovenstad (“Upper City”), Kota Tua is the neighborhood that made up Jakarta’s original city core. It is also known by the Dutch names Oud Batavia and Benedenstad (“Lower City”). In North Jakarta and West Jakarta (Kelurahan Pinangsia, Taman Sari, and Kelurahan Roa Malaka, Tambora), which served as the center of the Dutch administration and served as a port city and the regional headquarters of the VOC in Asia during the height of the spice trade, are located Dutch-style buildings, the majority of which date from the 17th century.

Within walking distance, take the time to visit one of the historical buildings « Candra Naya « (Hokkien: Sin Ming Hui) which was built in the 18th century, was the home of the Khouw family from Tamboen, especially its highest-ranking member: Khouw Kim An, the last Majoor der Chinezen (‘Mayor of the Chinese’) from Batavia. Spend the afternoon with a culinary tour of Chinatown, sampling a range of regional delicacies like Kopi Es Tak Kie and the renowned Rojak Shanghai Encim, which is only available at Glodok. If you visit on weekends, shopping in the Glodok and Mangga Dua areas is the right choice, before continuing your trip to Ancol Dreamland Park which is only 19 minutes away by car.

“We wish to give each and every one of our visitors and guests a unique experience. The Novotel Jakarta Gajah Mada’s location is ideal for getting away from the city’s bustle because it is adjacent to both historical monuments and the Presidential Palace” says Gita Pratiwi, Assistant Marketing Communication Manager.
