The hotel’s personality comes alive through its vibrant murals by recognised Indonesian artists Nugraha Pratama and Nur Cahyono illustrating Jakarta’s rich culture and heritage throughout the guestroom interiors and communal spaces.

“Jakarta is a pulsating metropolis with a vibrant social scene,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand & Marketing, Asia-Pacific, Marriott International. “The new Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is bound to become a buzzing hub for global travellers and locals to connect over great live music from up-and-coming bands.”

With its always-on public spaces, the design exudes a sassy modern style that is reflected in its free-flowing open areas imbued with bold, local influences. The hotel will feature the brand’s signature W XYZSM Bar and re:mix Lounge, a lively public space where guests can mix and mingle over live acoustic music from local emerging musicians.
