At 768 metres above sea level, Indonesia’s Bandung City enjoys a cool weather all year around. This is a rather unusual experience in one of the biggest tropical destinations in the world. At the same time, we found this quality ideal for a unique Indonesian getaway. We could get a chance to enjoy the best of nature without the sweat. We pushed our horizon further and stayed in luxury at the new InterContinental Bandung Dago Pakar.
This five-star property takes pride in bringing serenity amidst luxury that can suit business, dating and family travellers. The attentive staff and the ample space in the rooms stood out the most for us. There's also the infinity pool looking out on the skyline of Bandung. As food lovers, we loved the amazing lineup of dishes at the on-site restaurant called Damai.
Overall, we were impressed by how advanced the hotel is when it comes to providing a fancy and convenient stay despite being new in the city. We can’t wait until we get to experience it the next time we find ourselves in Bandung. Read our full InterContinental Bandung hotel review to learn more about this 5-star property.
