Christmas and New Year celebrations are not just occasions; they are a spectacle of joy, hope, and unity in Jakarta's vibrant landscape. Embodying this sentiment, award-winning InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah has prepared a magical line-up of festive season programmes for 2023 – a magnificent ode to the city’s infectious festive spirit.
"Magical Festive Holiday": A Mesmerising Journey
Experience the magic from the moment you step into the hotel, as the theme "Magical Festive Holiday" envelops you in a world of wonder and luxury. Amplifying the grandeur, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah is thrilled to announce its collaboration with the luminary of Indonesian fashion, Biyan Wanaatmadja. A limited-edition, luxury hamper series, with only 30 pieces on offer, has been meticulously curated, featuring an exquisite Italy-made silk scarf by Biyan, complemented by the luxurious Duval Leroy Champagne bottle.
Stellar Decor and Ambiance
Dive into a visual spectacle as our spaces – the hotel’s iconic lobby, its dreamy cakeshop, and the sumptuous Sugar & Spice restaurant – undergo a transformation under the artistry of Stupa Caspea, the luxury decoration maestro known for crafting dreamscapes.
An Ode to Edible Artistry
Setting the celebratory tone, the award-winning hotel’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony on December 6, 2023, will be accentuated by a phenomenal edible art wall crafted by the prodigious Singapore-based food artist, Janice Wong. Over the years, Janice has redefined the boundaries of dessert-making and art, turning every creation into an immersive experience for the senses. Her journey began with her flagship brand, 2am: dessertbar, establishing a culinary philosophy that fuses flavours, textures, and interactive art. This ethos was further embodied in her confectionery retail venture, Janice Wong Singapore. Pure Imagination showcases her devotion to chocolate-making with a bean-to-bar approach, while Softhaus reinvents ice cream flavours. The year 2021 marked a significant milestone for Janice Wong and her brands as they secured funding from Vertex Ventures SEA and India, propelling their international expansion. Already leaving a mark in the UK, Japan, and Korea, her sensational masterpieces are expanding to Sydney, Australia.
