JAKARTA HOTEL ****
Get transported into a tropical dreamland at Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam. Its name pays homage to its location that is the former departure point for Jakarta-bound ships. Today, it’s a space where two worlds connect. Take a step inside and be amazed by its lush indoor subtropical garden in the heart of the building. We’re talking meters-high palm trees, banana trees and more exotic plants from Asia curated by Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. It’s one of the Netherlands’ first energy-neutral hotels – From solar energy heating the shower, rainwater hydrating its greens, down to the staff decked out in sustainable apparel. What’s more, their Skybar serves up a cocktail of Asian fusion delights with a panoramic view to boot. Going green’s never felt and looked so good.
