This Ramadhan season, Intercontinental Jakarta Pondok Indah invites guests to have a blissful yet festive celebration of Ramadhan and Idul Fitri the Intercontinental way!


One of the most significant months for Muslims worldwide every year is Ramadhan, and for many Indonesians, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the country’s rich and diverse culinary treasures. Communities all over the archipelago celebrate Ramadhan and Idul Fitri by cooking their best dishes and sharing them with their family, friends, and neighbors.

To facilitate this incredible ritual, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah has prepared an extensive range of elite treats for affluent guests to celebrate Ramadhan and Idul Fitri the InterContinental way. Two renowned Indonesian designers, Rinaldy Yunardi and Nefianto Setiono, the hotel’s illustrious Artists-in-Residence for 2022-2023, are back to transform the hotel into a beautiful wonderland fitting for a blissful celebration.

Nefianto Setiono is, once again, going to make the hotel adorned with classy and serene decorations to welcome Ramadhan and celebrate Idul Fitri. Meanwhile, the renowned Rinaldy Yunardi – whose sensational creations have been worn by international megastars such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, and many more – is releasing the third and final version of the limited edition luxury gifts trilogy, exclusively for the hotel called the ‘Royale Hamper’.

The Royale Hamper

InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah is Jakarta’s capital of amazing gifts, and this celebrated tradition continues for Ramadhan and Idul Fitri.

The champion of designer Rinaldy Yunardi’s third edition and final Royale Hampers – which was inspired by a superb abstract painting that towers the hotel’s lobby, Haryanto’s ‘Bletuk’ Gunawan’s “Stand By Me” – is a majestic heart adorned with ubiquitous emerald stones. This mesmerizing heart sparkles eternally, and its enduring rays of love have been inspired by the iconic palm leaf weaving that is used to wrap ketupat – an icon of Indonesian cuisine – in rose gold copper. 

This noblest of gifts is priced at IDR 6,988,000++ per Royale Hamper treasure chest, including “The Heart” iconic brooch designed by Rinaldy Yunardi. Only 30 treasure chests will be available for this year’s Ramadhan and Idul Fitri versions. Each of these treasure chests will also include delicious premium treats such as chocolate-dipped Medjol dates, three selections of artisanal cakes, and many more.

In addition to the limited-edition Royale Hampers, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah has also prepared many other elegant gifts curated by pastry queen Kim Pangestu and team, such as the Diamond Hamper (IDR 3,988,000++), the Platinum Hamper (IDR 2,188,000++), the one-of-a-kind Classic Opera Cake (IDR 688,000++), the ever popular Red Velvet and Lapis Legit (both for IDR 688,000++ each) and many more.

These delicious, sweet treats are available to pre-book now and will be available for purchase at the hotel’s boutique cake shop from 15 March 2023.

A Feast of Inspiring Indonesian Dishes

Every year, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah invites a distinguished Guest Chef to add to their all-star culinary team. This year, the hotel has appointed Chef Norman Ismail to join their decorated culinary team.

Affable and undoubtedly skillful in the kitchen, Chef Norman’s knowledge of this country’s diverse culinary cultures is profound, and this expertise is reflected in his gastronomic creations, some of which will decorate InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah’s Ramadhan and Idul Fitri to top-notch culinary offerings. Think Crispy Soft Shell Crab served in Traditional Shrimp Bisque, Rawon Soup with Brisket Meat, and many more innovative dishes. 

All of this deliciousness will feature in Sugar & Spice’s special Iftar Buffet from 22 March until 21 April (from IDR 698,000++ / person). For those with a penchant for authentic Japanese cuisine, the hotel’s newly appointed teppanyaki master, Chef Hidemaro Hodaka, has also prepared an authentic Japanese teppanyaki set menu to be savored at Shio for IDR 1,988,000++.
