With over 70 years of experience providing seamless service in the travel industry, an insightful concierge team welcomes guests to a new world of sophistication where they will enjoy the InterContinental Life in 311 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites that embrace the perfect blend of function and form. Furnished with soothing tones and timeless artwork, the rooms and suites provide sweeping views of Pondok Indah, the South Jakarta district known for its exclusive estates and reputable international schools. Strategically integrated within a high-end commercial complex that includes a prominent shopping mall, office tower, family friendly facilities and a world-class golf course, the hotel is the perfect destination for both business and leisure travellers.

Envisioned as the most coveted wedding venue in Jakarta, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah is fully equipped to bring dream weddings to life with an elegant Grand Ballroom suitable for 3500 guests and a tropical outdoor terrace perfect for an intimate ceremony, whilst the Sky Box is situated above the ballroom and has been designed for guests to gather privately. The Chef’s Table has been curated for the bridegroom’s family to intimately experience the culinary team’s creations for the big day. The InterContinental World of Weddings team provides stress-free wedding planning and support as they consult brides-to-be in the comfort of a chic Wedding Gallery & Lounge with exquisite refreshments.

The hotel is strategically located just 45 minutes from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, offering unrivaled amenities, including the renowned Club InterContinental® and featuring the city’s only exclusive outdoor terrace dining, designed for hosting the city’s sophisticated executives and business travellers.

InterContinental Meetings® offers state-of-the-art meeting facilities accompanied by an event butler ready to provide a flawless experience for meeting delegates. Featuring The Studios, Jakarta’s first club-inspired space reimagines the meeting experience, with a relaxed atmosphere designed to help stimulate the liveliest of discussions or review reports in the comfort of plush sofas with a cappuccino prepared by on-site baristas. Interactive show kitchens provide guests with a unique experience as wondrous and exotic dishes from around the world are created. For an energetic afternoon "pick me up”, guests can enjoy The Sweet Spot, a buffet filled with popular sweets and confections exclusive to The Studios, and as the day draws to a conclusion indulge in the finest wines at The Vineyard or sample refined spirits in the whisky tasting room.

Guests seeking to revitalise body and mind are welcome in the Inaria Spa or to enjoy a private session at the Fitness & Movement Studio. Families can look forward to an exciting, fun-filled stay with children invited to swim in the children’ swimming pool and playground area at the outdoor Planet Trekkers® on the 8th floor.  Direct access to Pondok Indah Water Park and kid’s facilities in Pondok Indah Mall are also available for the little ones.

Boasting dynamic dining options, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah is sure to become the focal point for South Jakarta’s residents and guests to indulge the finest offerings from around the world.
