Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, Alexandra Champalimaud, Bill Bensley to help design The St. Regis Jakarta

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. and Rajawali Group have announced the groundbreaking of The St. Regis Jakarta in Indonesia's capital. Set to open in 2016, the all-suite hotel brings the St. Regis brand to Jakarta.

Located in Jakarta's central business district along Jalan Gatot Subroto, near Jakarta's Sudirman Central Business District and the Mega Kuningan area, the development encompasses a 124 room hotel, a 47-story office tower, and a special food and beverage and retail component.

Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, who also designed The St. Regis Mexico City, the development joins the architecture firm's portfolio that includes some of the tallest buildings and major urban landmarks around the world. The development will also feature the work of the New York interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud and tropical urban landscape designer Bill Bensley.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

This development accompanies a 20-year partnership that Rajawali forged with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, following the recent success of The St. Regis Bali Resort.

Adding to the hotel's debut, the commercial office tower is eyed to become a premium address for multi-national corporations, local conglomerates, and financial institutions, filling the void in international standard and grade-A commercial facilities. Upon completion, the office tower will be acquired by Singapore-based GIC as part of its real estate portfolio.
