Creating bespoke services through Indonesian Heritage

Before opening our doors to the public, Raffles Jakarta has created bespoke creations to our guests, ranging from bathrobe to a bespoke tea by TWG Tea. The bathrobe is designed by Oscar Lawalata with design inspirations from Hendra Gunawan artworks as well as local batik patterns, available at the rooms and suites within Raffles Jakarta.

For an afternoon tea session, Raffles Jakarta created a bespoke black tea creation with TWG tea, an iconic and luxury tea company from Singapore
named Raffles Jakarta Tea.

Hendra Gunawan is said to be one of the most renowned painters in Indonesian history and respected for his role in actively stimulating the development of modern art at the beginning of Indonesia’s Independence years. His paintings depict daily lives of people from different levels of society. Like his art work, he had a colorful life which can be classified into three distinct periods.
