From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:This hectic, sprawling capital has many business hotels, but for any semblance of luxury, travelers will want to upgrade to the Ritz-Carlton, located in Mega Kuningan, one of the few neighborhoods in Jakarta with an expanse of greensward. Standard rooms, at 700 square feet, are by far the city's largest and most elegantly appointed. Don't be discouraged by the generic lobby: Rooms have 12-foot ceilings and full-length windows looking out at the dazzling skyline. All three restaurants are superb, and the menu of business services is impressive. A well-equipped gym and a lovely spa offer respite in a city that can sometimes be oppressive. 2006 Hot List
When to go: February through May, for moderate temperatures and blue skies.
Which room to book: Many have great city views, but No. 1223's is especially stunning (doubles, $178).
