Intercontinental Mid Plaza Hotel

I’m so miss to write something on my blog, and finally I get a chance to write the unfinished task which I'd promised to you about my journey in some hotels in Jakarta a very long time ago. You saw my post about Alila, and Manhattan Hotel already, so today I'm gonna write about the next hotel after them, the third hotel, and I’m sure you gotta love this. This hotel is not only amazing, but they also provide everything for us to get very comfortable. I love this hotel so much, I mean it, I went there once but it already made me fall in love with their awesome facilities, their food and many more. So, here it is… I give you the article about my journey at Intercontinental Mid Plaza Hotel...

First of all, I want to bring you to get a closer look to the architecture, and by seeing the color you already knew that it makes yourself homey.

You'll see this awesome Apple-gadget-player in your room. I think it's already available in every rooms. Now you can turn your music on. :)

I'm not promoting Celine Dion btw

I also take some pictures in the spa, actually it's forbidden to take a camera inside, but forget it, how can you just stay calm without taking a pictures by looking at this beautiful spa? I could spend my 'me time' many hours in there. :)

I also took a picture of me inside the jacuzzi
Very relaxing

Okay, now you're seeing the swimming pool, it’s quite large and full of children as you can see in the picture. Yes, this family hotel is really awesome to spend your weekend after a busy day in your office, or only to run out from the traffic in the street.

After from the outside, I walked at the corridor, and my eyes got a surprise by these delicious-looking snack, I don't know the name of the snack is. Just look at the picture below.

Manhattan Hotel

First, I want to apologize for making this post took out so long. I participated some events in my campus, and they made me very busy, but here I am talking about Manhattan Hotel. Hmm… actually the big part of this post more talking about the mall nearby the hotel. I'm sorry I forgot the name of the mall.

So like you guys know it, after I spend one night in Alila Hotel, the journey continues to Manhattan Hotel. Honestly, I prefer Alila to Manhattan, from the interior itself and the hotel service as well. But there is one thing in Manhattan Hotel that makes me surprised, the swimming pool, the concept is like Marina Bay swimming pool in Singapore. You can see clearly all the tall building around you right when you are swimming, and of course peoples who are in the building can see you when you are swimming as well.

Manhattan's swimming pool

But overall, I took much time in the mall nearby like I said before. The mall’s still new, so there’s only a few people came by. Most of the pictures, I took randomly everywhere, inside the market, and inside the mall. It’s also the end of the chapter of Manhattan Hotel, psst… there are still three more hotels coming right away… stay tune :)  

When I entered the mall, looked up, and... click

The mall, it's so quiet

Some beautiful painting inside the mall

Alila Hotel

Shout out loud for holiday!!! I know everyone must be very excited due holiday of Hari Raya Idul Fitri is coming closer. Everybody especially Moslem people is going to their hometown, a place where they were born, to celebrate Hari Raya Idul Fitri with their siblings and family. So I and my family, in case to avoid traffic in everywhere, planned going to Jakarta. Just for you know, Jakarta is very friendly due this event. No more traffic, no more crowd of people, no more queuing in a long line, yeah…. until the holiday is over, Jakarta will go back as usual :( 

We were planning for some tour..  it’s not a tour to abroad to overseas, but tour Hotel to Hotel. There are 5 hotels in Jakarta which we were booked for spending our time of this holiday. The first hotel that we visited is Alila Hotel ,the rest of them is still a secret, it doesn’t matter if you knew it already. It’s located in Pecenongan street of Jakarta, the street that always been full because of the food seller on the roadside in every night. One thing that I know, this Hotel is very suitable for Western people. I know it because many Western people come and visit this hotel, and also from the architecture from the hotel which are simple and elegant. As a 5-Stars Hotel, they have a very warm welcome and good service, no wonder that I really enjoy this hotel so much.

Oh… I should tell you about their fitness center and swimming pool. They are really a comfortable place to work out your body. Yet their fitness center is famous already because some brands of Fitness nutrition in Indonesia took this place for their location of the photo shoot. And…. I also don’t wanna miss my own photo shoot in this location…. so I hired my sister for being my photographer… haha…

Yes, there's someone's back behind me :)

In the next morning, I and my sister had our breakfast in this hotel. Just take a look of the pictures.. Hmm, this also the end of the chapter of Alila Hotel, stay with me for the next upcoming issue… :)

The place that I and my sister took our breakfast, sorry forgot its name.

Appetizers, Dim Sum

Main course, Fried rice - fried glass noodle - broccoli - chicken


Croissant - Muffin

Desserts, Mango and Blueberry Yogurt
