We visited Alila for two nights at the end of June before we proceeded further into Java. We spent quite a bit of time in the hotel and really enjoyed the amenities, especially the spa, room service and club access floor.
The hotel feels a bit sterile and modern, which is great for business stopovers, but lacks the charm and romantic appeal for honeymooners or vacationers.
That being said, the room was immaculate. The bathroom with rain shower was awesome. The bed was comfortable. The room size was a bit small but a wall length couch/cushion/window seat covered one side of the room. The view was incredible (we were on the eighth floor).
We treated ourselves to couples spa treatments. My wife had a massage and I had a steam treatment (as I was under the weather) and short massage. This is probably the best spa experience we have had. The room was dark wood, extremely spacious, had a fantastic bath area and wonderful shower and restroom facilities. The music, surround sound and general ambiance was incredibly romantic. The only downside was that we couldn't have thirty minutes to ourselves in there afterward ;-). This being our first stop in Indonesia, we were quite surprised by the low prices as our treatments cost a total of USD 75.
The hotel has two restaraunts and a coffee shop with a room service menu that has items from all of them. We enjoyed the food quality and only had ended up doing room service for our meals (again as I was under the weather) but the restaraunts themselves looked very nice.
The club access lounge was a great resource for happy hour snacks and breakfast. We certainly recommend purchase of club access, although alcohol is an extra charge.
The pool area is several floors up on a roof section and is beautiful. The pool offers a snack area and views of surrounding Jakarta.
Overall, it's a great hotel especially if you're in town for business and want something clean, comfortable and with standard but high quality amenities located in the political center of town. For those who are in Jakarta to sight see, the hotel is not in walking distance of very much and the hotel has the sterile business-feel, which lacks the taste or "culture" of Jakarta.
