Muslims worldwide celebrate Ramadhan every year, but of course every region has its own way of observing these holy moments. In Indonesia, food and family are central to the celebration, with specific delights shared for breaking fast, or indeed to celebrate the end of the season. In this spirit, the InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah showcases a list of treats, including their special designer hampers, a guest chef to introduce new dishes, and a Lebaran holiday getaway.

The hotel has invited a range of collaborators to really elevate their offerings this season, including two renowned Indonesian designers, Rinaldy Yunardi and Nefianto Setiono, the hotel’s illustrious Artists-in-Residence for 2022-2023; plus guest chef Chef Norman Ismail, the host of popular cooking show as well as the author of at least two cookbooks on Indonesian cuisine. 

The Royale Hamper 

The renowned designer, Rinaldy Yunardi, presents his third and final edition of the InterContinental Jakarta’s Royale Hampers. Inspired by a superb abstract painting that towers the hotel’s lobby, Haryanto ‘Bletuk’ Gunawan’s “Stand By Me” is a majestic heart adorned with ubiquitous emerald stones. This mesmerising 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 crown jewel gift is priced at IDR 6,988,000++ per Royale Hamper treasure chest including “The Heart” iconic brooch designed by Rinaldy Yunardi.
