I travelled to Jakarta and work put me in a hotel down the road from Kemang Icon for two weeks. I was complaining to some colleagues over dinner about the dismal wi-fi and sterile feel of my room when one of them told me to go check out Kemang Icon. So I went and had dinner there a few nights later and met the Chef and GM, both from the US, who showed me a room. Needless to say, I was enticed by the big rooms and cool feel of the whole place so I checked out of the Grand Kemang and moved to the Icon for the rest of my time in Jakarta at my own expense. That decision really made my trip memorable. Not only was I more comfortable working out of my room but the food here is divine and the place has a certain personality that made Jakarta and the traffic more palatable. Meals were normally spent chatting with Carter and Brendan, the GM and chef, about the trials and tribulations of Jakarta - good stuff! The place is small but the staff really make you feel at home. From the funky Asian art on the walls to the great music in the restaurant and on the ipod in my room, this place feels like a hidden harbor of cool in the midst of sea of madness. I don't know if or when I will find myself in Jakarta again but when I do I will definitely be going back to the Icon.
