It’s been two years since I left Bandung and I couldn’t be more than happy to be back! It was just a short 2 days vacation. And I had the pleasure to stay for 2 nights at Sheraton Bandung and experience all of their services including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a spa.
After all of those months of baking and decorating cake, I found staying here was like a gift, more like a treat, really. I don’t have to do the dishes, I don’t have to deal with my customers. All I did was just relax and enjoy myself.
We arrived late in the evening. And after checking in, we went straight into our room which is at the Tower area. So, Sheraton Bandung has two main areas. That includes the hotel area and the tower area. When you move from one area to another, it feels like you’re in a completely different hotel. It’s got a different design, different style, different feeling. Anyway, I’m going to give you a little tour of the hotel.
Starting off, I’m going to show you the main lobby. It doesn’t feel a lot like a lobby because, to me, it feels like a meeting point or a lounge, it’s a place you can just sit around for hours without feeling awkward. And it has this beautiful turquoise lamps, look!
They are just too pretty, right?
Anyway, we finished checking-in in just a few minutes and then one of their Manager in charged greeted us and offered us some drink, which was really refreshing after that long trip from Jambi. The next day, Mba Ari accompanied me for a short hotel tour. I’ll show you all of them.
So Sheraton Bandung itself is divided into 2 main parts, which is the Sheraton Hotel and Sheraton Tower. And the pool area is like somewhere in the middle. No, it’s actually a part of Sheraton Hotel. Guests of Sheraton Hotel has no access to the tower area, but the guests of Sheraton Tower definitely has the access to the hotel area. So Sheraton Tower is like a more privileged area.
One of my favourite area of the hotel is this pool, and I bet you can see why 😉 This whole pool area really makes me feel that I’m somewhere in Bali. Doesn’t feel like Bandung at all! It’s like an oasis in the middle of the city.
When you’re in the pool area, you can easily spot the restaurant, which is the one and only, FEAST. This is basically where I had my breakfast, lunch, and also dinner. In the morning, you can spot a wide variety of buffet food, ranging from Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, to Western food. There are some stations there : the appetizer station, the main course station, the drink station, the BBQ & noodle station, and my favourite one, the dessert station. I ate too much food for breakfast and ended up feeling already full when having my lunch. LOL.
Oh yummy goodness… Wish I could have ’em all right now.
Now moving on to Sheraton Tower. And this is where I stayed last week.
Sheraton Tower is dominated with gold and black colour, which makes it feel more elegant and romantic. It’s decorated with a very artistic lamp and chimney fireplace which brings warm kind of sense to the whole room. Gives it a very different feel from the hotel area.
Every day starting from 4 pm to 7 pm, there’s cocktail hour here at Sheraton Tower Lounge where you can enjoy your cocktail for free (if you’re staying in Tower room).
This is what my room looks like. It’s soooo spacious and well designed!
What I really adore is their king size bed. It literally made waking up is such a hard thing to do, I swear!
POOL ACCESS AND POOL VIEW ROOM
Moving on to Sheraton Hotel.
So Mba Ari did show me some of their room, and this one caught my eyes. It’s the pool view room!
TOASTINA. Coffee and dessert, anyone?
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Sheraton does have a pastry shop & coffee house named Toastina. They have a wide variety of cake that you can buy even if you’re not staying at the hotel.
And psst, I heard that they do offer a 50% off for cake & bread after 7pm everyday! Well, except for Friday.
I had the pleasure to enjoy the 1-hour traditional massage here at Shine Spa, and I swear it was one of the best time of my life. I feel so relaxed. The therapist made sure that she doesn’t give too much pressure since I’m not used to being massaged. She’s one of the best!
Thanks for having me and for the hospitality, Sheraton Bandung! It was a sweet short escape from my daily routine. I couldn’t ask for more.
