Through “Tjikini to Gondangdia”, The Hermitage, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Jakarta, invites guests to celebrate Jakarta’s iconic culinary dish.


The Hermitage, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Jakarta, a beacon of luxury nestled in Jakarta, proudly unveils this year’s enchanting Ramadan Festive, “Tjikini to Gondangdia.” Delve into the rich history of Cikini, Jakarta’s venerable neighborhood steeped in the delightful culinary traditions of the Dutch Colonial era. In the shadows of Indonesia’s dark Dutch colonial past, Cikini emerged as the supporting pillar for the Menteng residential district, strategically evolving into a bustling commercial hub adorned with restaurants, schools, post offices, and vibrant public markets meticulously planned by local visionaries. Meanwhile, Gondangdia, a jewel known for its market during the Dutch Colonial era, has retained its elite status, creating a tapestry of cultural heritage.

Positioned between the timeless charm of Cikini and the sophistication of Gondangdia, The Hermitage, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Jakarta beckons patrons to immerse themselves in an extraordinary culinary experience, featuring curated alltime favorite dishes from both realms this Ramadan.
