Nothing prepared us for the delightful experience we had at Jakarta’s Millennium Hotel – part of the international chain of exceptionally-managed hotels.
The very minute we left the immigration counter, a uniformed bellhop from the hotel came forward… introduced himself… collected all our bags… and ushered us to two waiting Alphards.
In less than 30 minutes, we were in our “home” for the next four days.
(The all-smiles hotel was our designated “pitstop” as we went through the grueling musical orgy known the world over as the annual Java Jazz Festival.)
The gigantic Javanese mural that welcomes you in the lobby is just one of the many eye candies that abound.
The front desk is framed by intricate woodwork carved lovingly by Javanese artisans.
Upon entering one’s spacious room, a very personal touch.
There’s an area for lounging about in the room and enjoying the free wifi and the massive LED TV
As you begin to settle down, what greets you is not the usual “form letter” from the GM – but a uniquely Pinoy touch… a handwritten note
Our potassium fix for dessert
