Living in Jakarta

As an expat living in Jakarta, you will be living in Indonesia’s largest city. With its 9.8 million inhabitants, Jakarta is a metropolis with international flair. Read the InterNations Guide on Jakarta for more information on Southeast Asia’s “Big Apple,” from culture to healthcare.

Although Indonesia is perhaps not the highest ranking among expat destinations, life in Jakarta can be thrilling. Due to Indonesia’s long and turbulent colonial history, the influence of the Dutch and Portuguese are still prevalent. There are many traces from colonial times in Jakarta, from the buildings to the way the city itself is structured.

As the metropolis of Indonesia, Jakarta attracts many new residents from other parts of Indonesia. Not only are the residents of Jakarta relatively open-minded in respect to foreigners, but the mix of nationalities brings a unique flair to the city.

With quite a few cultural offerings to attract tourists, Jakarta successfully lures expats to its city center. The restoration of the Jakarta Arts Center, for example, along with a number of other buildings, means that the city can now boast some of the country’s best concerts and exhibitions.

Telah banyak bertebaran kini beberapa bar, resto dan hotel berbintang di ibukota ini yang menyajikan hidangan khas negeri "der Panzer" dengan cita rasa yang menggoda selera yang bisa menjadi pilihan. Dan sekarang, hadir satu lagi, bar & resto khas Jerman yang menyemarakkan dunia kuliner di Jakarta, yaitu Ra Stube, yang terletak di Jl. Intan No. 25 Cilandak Jakarta Selatan, persisnya di halaman depan sebuah serviced apartment baru, Ra Residence yang baru saja opening. Setelah mendulang sukses sejak dibukanya Die Stube di bilangan Kemang, lalu menyusul Imbiss Stube di Citos dan Sport Stube di PI Driving Range, pengelola bar & resto bernuansa sport, Bp. Patrick Widjaja, membuka satu outlet lagi yang bernuansa rustic.

Dalam pengertian etimologis, die Stube yang berasal dari bahasa Jerman ini, aslinya merupakan bagian rumah yang dilengkapi dengan penghangat ruangan (yang biasanya digunakan saat musim dingin dan umumnya banyak terdapat di rumah-rumah tradisional di daerah pertanian). Die Stube bisa juga berarti ruangan yang hangat sehingga siapapun merasa nyaman berada atau berlama-lama didalamnya. Sehingga tak heran jika desain interior bar & resto khas die Stube di Jakarta banyak menggunakan elemen kayu atau rustic design dan elemen natural lainnya, yang dipadukan dengan gaya urban modern sehingga membuat suasana terasa hangat bagi setiap pengunjung.

Ra Residence, the Serviced Apartment with a New Approach

How many residential properties in Jakarta have been recently developed with high-tech while taking an eco-friendly approach in keeping with a green environment? You won't find many. Most buildings today seem to be built with some of the most high-tech facilities and equipment only. 

It is a great challenge indeed to balance efficiency with cost effectiveness in this day and age. Just imagine the difficulties of trying to balance a successful project taking energy saving technologies, i.e. water and electricity. The buildings in which we live, work, and play protect us from the daily elements of weather, yet they also affect our health and environment in countless ways. As the environmental impact of buildings becomes more apparent, there has been a shift taking these factors into consideration. Developing buildings that will be not only run more efficiently but also more effective for a healthily life as well!

This brings us to Cilandak area and a visit to Ra Residence, a brand new building catering to expatriates and  world business travelers, not to mention discerning residents of Jakarta and beyond. This new property represents a rare opportunity to balance prestigious urban living with established high tech go-green concepts!
