In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Bandung, find a sanctuary of uncompromising luxury, comfort and sophistication at The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung.
The moment I stepped foot inside The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung, I knew I was in for an opulent stay replete with the most delectable pampering. Opulent pampering is the modus operandi here, and you’ll see it from the moment you step through its doors; the lobby offers a welcome fit for royalty, with its gorgeous carpets, plush couches with luxurious upholstery and giant flower centrepieces. That grand stairway that leads from the second storey to the lobby is perfect for making an unforgettable entrance.
After I was done oohing and aahing over the awesome views, it was time to run amok in the palatial surroundings. I ventured to the third floor and found myself at the hotel’s pool. This outdoor beach setting is as pretty as they come; take your pick from the sea-blue shapes set amidst the lush landscaping. A sandy beach, lap pool, Jacuzzi and kids’ pool with water slide add to the leisure feel. The best thing about swimming at The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung is that the pool is heated to a nice warm 32 degrees, so pack a swimsuit and soak in the sun.
After the spa, I went to the 18th floor for sunset cocktails and dinner at the famous 18th Restaurant and Lounge. My eyes were pampered by the scenic view of Bandung. It is so magical to watch as the sun sets behind the mountains and the city transforms from day to night. In the evening, as you drink in the twinkling lights of the city, you can get the feeling that the city is set in a bowl, surrounded by mountains. The food and signature cocktails at The 18th Restaurant and Lounge are simply delicious and the ambience is chic and relaxing; it is no wonder that The 18th Restaurant and Lounge is the number one restaurant in Bandung, according to TripAdvisor.
Entering my room on the 15th floor, I found myself staring out a large window affording a view of Trans Studio Bandung, one of the biggest indoor theme parks in the world. It was quite a sight to behold. Even better was waking up in the morning and taking in this same glorious view while lolling in my plush bed, revelling in the comfort and luxury of this magnificent hotel. My room was lavishly decorated in richly opulent interiors, with quality furnishings and almost all the creature comforts that a mobile, modern business traveller could want. You will enjoy a blissful sleep in your king-size bed caressed by the finest 320 thread count Egyptian cotton and 100 per cent goose-down bedding. The room also boasts a full marble bathroom with separate bathtub and shower with Acqua di Parma luxury amenities.
The Trans Luxury Hotel is located in the integrated Trans Studio Bandung complex adjacent to Trans Studio Bandung and Trans Studio Mall, offering an unparalleled dining and shopping experience. The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung is the perfect destination for guests, whether they are in Bandung for business or pleasure.
