STAYCATION at Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta + Hotel Booking Tips

The idea of staycation always gets me excited, the comfy room, the relaxing vibes, the food. Every time we feel the need to escape from daily routine, staycation is the easiest and quickest getaway idea. AnakJajan recently had a weekend staycation in Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta, it remains one of our favorites in town.

Our most favorite part of Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta is the pool, it’s surrounded by vast green area with lots of trees, it gives us the relaxing holiday vibes and feels like we’re not in Jakarta anymore. We call it green paradise in the middle of concrete jungle.

Upon arriving, we were welcomed by complimentary sweets from the hotel, Mr. Jajan also received a warm birthday cake and card, gotta give Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta double thumbs up for the thoughtfulness.

We stayed at Horizon Club Room which located in higher floors with picturesque views of the Jakarta skyline. It feels like a home away from home.

Of course one of the most exciting part from staycation is the buffet breakfast!! As you all know, Satoo is undoubtedly one of the most popular hotel buffet in Jakarta. We woke up in high spirits knowing that we are going to have a morning feast 😀

The buffet spread is so tempting we want to try everything. From freshly baked pastries, Indonesian food, porridge, Chinese food, sushi, to Indian food, they have it all here. We carefully take a lil bit of everything and try it all, we left the restaurant fully satisfied.

Anyway, talking about staycation, we have one important tips to share with you about hotel booking process. There’s a new feature called Pay at Hotel” by Traveloka that surely will help you to plan your perfect trip by allowing you to reserve your hotel now and pay later at the hotel.

Usually when it comes to holiday planning, one of the major thing to do is to book a hotel, usually all the great hotels get fully booked fast especially on high season, sighhh…. The only way to avoid such a disappointment by booking the room in advance, so with the new “Pay at Hotel” feature, it can help us to book and secure our room without the need to pay first, and the best part is Free Cancelation, as long as the cancelation is between the time period.

Here’s a closer look on how it works:
-First you choose the destination including check-in date, total guest, total room and preference.
-The search result will appear and you can choose “Pay at Hotel” category to see the list of hotel with “Pay at Hotel” option.
-Choose the hotel, there will be “pay at hotel”, “free breakfast”, and “free cancellation” options, choose the room.
-Add card details and confirm the booking. You will receive the hotel voucher afterwards.

For “Pay at Hotel” feature, you will be asked for credit card information but don’t worry it’s not for payment, it’s only used as guarantee, payment will be made when staying at the hotel.

Soooo, no more disappointment because of the fully booked hotel. Hopefully these information can help you to plan your perfect trip. Thank you for reading.
