INTERCONTINENTAL Jakarta Pondok Indah has opened its doors in the affluent Pondok Indah area in the heart of South Jakarta, marking the latest addition to the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand in Indonesia.

According to Anil Pathak, General Manager of InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah said guests seeking to revitalise their body, mind and soul are welcome to rejuvenate at Inaria Spa. The Spa is a true reflection of the rich culture and heritage of Indonesia, with indigenous treatments, utilising the apothecary blend bar and natural botanical and herbal elements.

“Inaria Spa honours a philosophy rooted in physical, emotional and spiritual balance, inviting guests to experience a jour-ney through the ancient healing traditions of Indonesia. From the sprawling rice fields of Bali to the rugged peaks of Borneo, each Spa journey reveals a path towards greater harmony,” he said.

Anil Pathak also mentioned that guiding guests to a more holistic way of life, Inaria Spa uses recipes and customs handed down through generations to create authentic remedies from indigenous fruits, herbs and roots.

“We are pleased to introduce Inaria Spa to our guests. With its holistic treatments, coupled with our exclusive range of spa and skincare products from Juara, guests can expect a naturally luxurious journey that rejuvenates the mind, body and soul,” Pathak said.

He added that creating space for positive transformation, Inaria Spa offers an opportunity for healing and revival that resonates long after leaving the treatment room. The Spa’s holistic approach is designed to tune into physical, emotional and spiritual states, promoting an organic healing process.  

To enhance the authentic balance between body and soul, Inaria Spa has announced a harmonious relationship with JUARA, where herbal tradition meets botanical science. Inspired by JAMU, the herbal healing tradition of Indonesia, JUARA combines ancient beauty rituals and herbal medicinal practices with the best of modern science to create a luxurious and indulgent problem-solution range of skincare and body care products.

“JUARA has been developed by Metta Murdaya, Yoshiko Roth, Jill Sung and Tami Chuang, who shared a vision to develop an elegant, effective, and socially conscious skincare line combining their Eastern and Western cultures to embody the natural beauty and inner strength of women,” he continued.

Inaria Spa in collaboration with JUARA, hosted an afternoon soiree at the hotel’s The Studios, featuring multi awarded Indonesian singer and actress Dira Sugandi as the skincare brand’s ambassador. Ms. Sugandi’s prolific career has spanned hits in the United Kingdom, Japan and her native Indonesia, and she has also sang duets with celebrated Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, as well as American singer/songwriter Jason Mraz.
