At Gran Meliá Jakarta, accompanied by the hotel’s patient Lady in Red, who encapsulates the hotel’s Red Glove Service, incoming “RedLevel” guests are taken to the 14th floor, formally called the RedLevel Lounge, for an exclusive check-in. Gran Meliá’s Red Glove Service embodies the Spanish passion and the Indonesian soul-service fusion, both performed beautifully to perfection by each of its staff members.

With its location on the 14th floor and above, all RedLevel rooms and suites have impeccable views of the city and skyline. RedLevel guests should also avail themselves of the all-inclusive high-tea buffet selection of delicate teas and signature coffees accompanied with daily heart-baked pastries located at the RedLevel Lounge from 2pm-5pm every afternoon.

After a little rest, the mouthwatering array of sweet treats is mandatory for guests to prep for the complimentary Evening Cocktails, also served at the lounge between 6pm and 11pm. Guests can request cocktails of their choice, which are expertly mixed by the talented team.

Along with cocktails, a tempting assortment of light bites is also served for guests to nibble on over drinks. For the convenience of business travellers, the RedLevel Lounge is home to two meeting rooms available free of charge for two hours. Guests who wish to call colleagues over for meetings are welcome to do so.

The dining options at the hotel include Yoshi Izakaya, for a sumptuous Japanese buffet selection, Tien Chao, for those who prefer to dine with Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine, an all-day dining venue called Gran Via, and the spacious Lobby Lounge which has an urban oasis concept creating a welcoming feel for all its guests.
