Modern, dynamic, expanding...the Indonesian capital of Jakarta sprawls over 16 square miles on the island of Java. Indonesia is comprised of thousands of islands spread between the Pacific and Indian oceans. Originally part of a Hindu kingdom, more than 300 ethnic groups account for Indonesia's linguistic, cultural and religious diversity, with Jakarta being the melting pot for each of these groups. One of Southeast Asia's largest cities, Jakarta's estimated population is over nine million people – and more than 23 million live within its metropolitan area.
Fanning out from around Merdeka (Freedom) Square, which contains the gold-tipped landmark of the National Monument, Jakarta provides a powerful contrast between Western-style skyscrapers, modern urban lifestyles and traditional Indonesian culture, offering visitors fascinating history, excellent shopping and exciting nightlife. With its strategic location, Jakarta is also the principal gateway to discovering the rest of Indonesia.
Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is conveniently located in the heart of the business district, and the surrounding areas offer a wide range of activities for your discovery.
