The Colony Club
The Colony Club opened in 2011 and has been a popular destination for discerning travellers ever since. Earlier this year in January (2019) to hotel expanded by acquiring a separate building next door which was turned into The Colony Club.
Both buildings have modern minimalistic decor with inspiration from the Dutch Colonial era and decorated by the owners. The lobby area has leather sofas and armchairs with oriental mats, banana leaves, white crisp walls and bookshelves filled with books and various Indonesian and Colonial-inspired artefacts. The Colony Club building follows the same style. The lounge area next to the private lap pool is beautifully decorated with artwork, antiques, books, and board games. This is where the daily complimentary Sunset Cocktails are served to Club guests between 5 pm – 6 pm including Australian wines and beers with canapes.
Throughout the Club, there are several pictures and photographs of vintage KLM (Dutch Royal Airlines) posters, postcards and maps of Indonesia and Jakarta telling a story of The Netherland’s old colonial days.
The Club has four room categories ranging from Club Grand Suite to Club Deluxe. Exclusively for the Clubrooms, they all have their own private balcony. The balconies with their outdoor seating are spacious and have ceiling to floor windows that can be opened or closed depending on the time of the day.
The Club Premier room ranges in size from 41 -55 sq meters and is decorated in an elegant and timeless style. The large king-size bed is comfortable and the marble-clad bedside tables are beautiful. The large 60-inch smart TV is placed in a white bookshelf which also has several artefacts on display.

The main hotel 16- meter pool is surrounded by a lush tropical garden creating a sense of an oasis. This is the perfect spot to lounge and relax.
