Jakarta’s trendy crowd has been flocking to Sofia at The Gunawarman for months now, savouring European cuisine and enjoying tea time with pretty pastries from Kitte. It is a question in everyone’s mind though, when will The Gunawarman itself open its door? Now it has, revealing a classic European-style boutique hotel.
True to its “life is a grand affair” tagline, the hotel brings back memories of voyages from the yesteryear, with uniformed bellboy greeting at the front door of a majestic property (The Gunawarman collaborates with Auguste Soesastro to design staff uniforms). Think Grand Budapest Hotel in its heyday. Luxurious furniture decorate the interior, while alleyways to the rooms are made of polished wood and carpeted. It is a lush experience indeed.
The 35 rooms in the property are divided into three categories: The White Room, The Wood Room and The Mansard Room, each with three different sizes of 20 to 78 sqm. A unique feature in The Wood Room is an in-room bathtub, placed by the window to provide for a sun-kissed bathing experience. The Mansard Room, on the other hand, features a sloping roof that complements the romantic British-inspired furniture in the room. All rooms are completed with bath products from Penhaligon’s, a storied British perfumery.
Aiming to be an all-inclusive luxury residence, The Gunawarman is equipped with F&B and service tenants.
An all-day dining spot serving Italian, French and Asian cuisines. Besides the Instagrammable indoor area, the restaurant also provides a cozy outdoor spot with a movie-worthy spiral staircase. Breakfast is served from 6AM to 10.30AM, while afternoon tea starts at 2PM. The all-day dining is served from 11AM to 11PM daily.
The bakery blends French and Japanese baking styles for innovative creations that would satiate the sweet tooth. It opens from 6AM to 1-PM daily.
The members-only private business club provides spaces for small group meetings and gatherings. It operates from 9AM to 12AM daily.
The classy barbershop provides a range of grooming services, including hot towel wet shave and classic haircut. It opens from 9AM – 9AM from Monday to Saturday.
Santa Maria Novella
The Gunawarman’s fragrant area will leave you craving to shop for toiletries. Thank God, the property stocks products from Santa Maria Novella, one of Britain’s oldest pharmacies. It opens from 11AM to 10PM daily.
