SHANGRI-LA JAKARTA STAYCATION HOTEL REVIEW

It's our first Shangri-La Jakarta staycation experience! If you haven't watched our Youtube Vlog above, you better watch now. After experiencing some of the best 5 star hotels in Jakarta, we finally managed to get a very good deal at this Chinese influenced 5 star hotel. We paid only IDR 465.000/night or roughly $32, that was damn cheap! It was started on a massive hotel promotion from Traveloka app earlier this October 2019 and we luckily caught a very best deal for Grand Hyatt Jakarta. But things didn't turn out smoothly until we finally decided to pick Shangri-La. We'll talk about it later on, meanwhile enjoy our Shangri-La Jakarta review.

SOFITEL SYDNEY WENTWORTH HOTEL

We rarely write about overseas' hotel review, but when we do, it must be good or best! Like this Sofitel Sydney Wentworth that we booked during a flash sale on a travel app. Sofitel Wentwoth is located strategically at the Philip street just a block away from the popular Circular Quay. This area is very well known for its Ferry Wharf, The Sydney Opera House and The Rocks Market. Sofitel Wentworth is the first Sofitel hotel in Sydney and now there are two hotels, another one is at Darling Harbour. The room is super spacious just like a standard 5 star hotel with their French hospitality as it is an Accor group. There is not much that we can share to you as we didn't experience all of their facilities. So let's take a look.

SYDNEY TRAVEL GUIDE & BUDGET TIPS FOR FIRST TIMER

Believe it or not, we have been living in Australia (in particularly Sydney) more than anywhere else outside of Indonesia. Though Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand might sound so close and even cheaper, Sydney has been socalled our second home after living there for at least 1.5 years during our post graduate studies in 2009 - 2010. Thus, coming back to Sydney and other cities in Australia is like being at home (We came back in 2011, 2016, 2017 and now 2019), We have quite a good knowledge about Sydney city in general, well at least we knew where we wanted to go during our recent trip to Sydney on September 2019. With this blog, we would like to share you some basic infos about Australia and a few recommended spots to visit for a first timer. Let's check out more!

THE GROUNDS OF ALEXANDRIA ~ REVISITING 2019

It's our second time visited The Grounds of Alexandria and we think it's A MUST whenever you visit Sydney. The whole ambience has changed since the first time we visited them in 2016. It's a Candyland theme with colorful giant candies, flowers and garden. We unfortunately came at the wrong time as weekday was quite quiet and the outdoor stalls did not open. There were only two dining restaurants opened by the time of our visit, but the one with brunch menus closed earlier (around 4 PM), leaving only one restaurant opened "The Poting Shed" which is the expensive option for dining. If you wanna read the full review of The Grounds, you can check out our first blog review by CLICKING HERE. But if you wanna see the new look, read more on this post!

NOVOTEL PARIS CENTRE TOUR EIFFEL // PARIS HOTEL REVIEW

This gonna be a very quick and short review. During our 4 days 3 nights trip to Paris in June 2019, we stayed at Novotel Paris Centre Tour Eiffel Hotel (pretty long name isn't it?). We came up with this hotel as we were looking for the nearest hotel possible to the Eiffel tower. And as you might know, Novotel or Accor group is very huge in Paris. In fact, you can find a lot of Accor group hotels in this city. The standard room is pretty spacious with a queen bed, a desk, a mini bar, a water boiler, a hair dryer and a few basic utilities. We pretty enjoyed the room, though for the IDR 3 million rate per night, it didn't include the breakfast. Oh well, accommodation was super expensive in Europe and particularly in Paris as one of the most expensive city in the world in 2019.

HOLIDAY INN & SUITES GAJAH MADA - First in Indonesia

In March 2019, Holiday Inn group introduced its first Holiday Inn and Suites (Gajah Mada) in Indonesia. Well it's been a very long time since we had our staycation here, just a week after their grand opening. We were so privileged to experience their first Holiday Inn and Suites in Indonesia, which is adjacent to Citywalk Gajah Mada, West Jakarta. We were quite packed with activities back then, so we didn't get the chance to write a review on our blog. But some of you have probably watched our Youtube Channel reviewing this beautiful 4 star hotel. Everything was so brand new and all the staffs were very nice and attentive. Definitely feeling like a 5 star hospitality. Let's check out our beautiful Suite room.

HIVEWORK COWORK & CAFE ~ Coworking Space in Central Jakarta

Another not so new hidden gem in Jakarta, kali ini kita mau bawa kalian ke HIVEWORKS Co-work & Cafe di Karet, Sudirman. Jadi coworking space ini buka satu tahun yang lalu di awal 2018 dan kita juga sudah noticed saat itu. Kebetulan di atasnya ada La Posta restoran Argentina yang pada saat itu kita kunjungi. Nah setelah setahun akhirnya mereka selain nyediain coffee, mereka juga udah ada proper main courses! Terus ada satu ruangan yang kalian bisa sewa per meja cubicle nya atau ada VIP room yang bisa kalian gunakan untuk acara2 kantor soalnya ada layarnya. Yang kita suka dari Hiveworks sih sebenarnya suasananya yang adem dan tenang banget. Jangan expect cafe yang rame dan brisik ya guys, soalnya cafe ini di design supaya menjadi tempat nongkrong yang relaxing sekaligus tempat kerja di luar kantor.
