Jakarta Hideaways

  1. 1. MAXX-M Edition3, 201522 23 Museum di Tengah Kebun Located in one of Jakarta’s most fabulously busy districts, Museum di Tengah Kebun is a surprising oasis of green in the midst of congested, crowded Kemang. The museum covers 4,200 metres and contains 2,481 antiques from 63 countries and 21 provinces in Indonesia. The museum is also home for the owner, Sjahrial, so all these fabulous antiques also serve as everyday pieces of furniture. Carpets from Persia, sculptures from different centuries, antique flowerpots, chairs, tables, mirrors and cupboards add grace and colour to the rooms. The building itself is an artistic treasure, dating back 400 years to the Dutch colonial period. A tour takes about 1.5 hours and there is no charge. You should book in advance, with a minimum of seven guests and a maximum of 10. Jl.

Inspired by the famous Taman Sari Water Castle bathing complex in Yogyakarta, where members of Javanese royal families pampered themselves with luxurious baths of herbs and flowers, the ancient Javanese palace concept provides the authentic feeling of being inside the Kraton of Java. Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa offers everything from Baby Spa to Post-Menopause packages. All treatments are based on an ancient Javanese philosophy called Women Life Cycle, which teaches that a woman goes through eight different phases in her life, and each stage has its own physical and mental changes that must be treated properly.
