Hilton Bandung

Hilton Bandung is a modern & stylish property in the heart of the city with 186 guest rooms & suites. It has a selection of contemporary dining options, boasts stunning views from the outdoor pool, and is home to the Grand Ballroom, which is the largest of its kind in Bandung.

Upon arrival you can’t help but notice the sense of space with slate, glass and water featuring strongly throughout the property, all combining to create a modern & welcoming environment.

The rooftop pool is long enough for a decent workout and is surrounded by a variety of comfortable furniture and tropical plants. At night it turns into a beautiful and peaceful view for those dining at Fresco Restaurant.

Our executive level room was on the 11th floor, with fantastic views across Bandung to the mountains in the distance and a very comfortable bed. It was a modern and open plan room, with plenty of space to work or relax – we were very impressed with our home for the next few days.

We didn’t use the gym or have any treatments in the Jiva Spa, but we did manage to make the most of the sauna & jacuzzi area which was very enjoyable.

The Vegan Food

Each day at breakfast in Purnawarman Restaurant we were served a vegan feast, with the staff more than happy to prepare vegan versions of traditional Indonesian dishes for us. We enjoyed excellent soya milk cappuccinos, espressos and fresh fruit juices (our favourite being the ‘detox’ juice made from apple, carrot and ginger).

There was a wide range of fresh fruit to choose from, and fruit compotes that were sweet and spiced with cinnamon and star anise. We were also served a basket of vegan breads, warm, fresh and totally delicious with nutty flavours and seeded tops.

The Chef made us a vegan version of ‘Ketoprak’, a local dish of ‘lontong’ rice cakes with a rich spicy sauce made from sweet soy, shallots, hazelnuts, garlic and chilli. It was great to be able to try some local cuisine and we were really impressed withe the rich, sweet flavours in the dipping sauce.

There was a great salad bar where we could select fresh salad leave and other vegetables to make ourselves tasty vegan salad, topped off with a vegan balsamic salad dressing.

A real highlight of our vegan breakfast feast was getting to sample the Indonesian vegan delights of ‘bubur sum sum’ and ‘bubur ketan hitam’, which we absolutely fell in love with. A light rice flour and coconut milk custard which is slightly sweet and salted, topped with caramel flavoured ‘gula merah’ sugar syrup and a generous amount of coconut cream or a sweet black rice pudding, again with coconut cream ladled on top.

Whilst at the Hilton Bandung we enjoyed delicious vegan meals in both restaurants and the reviews can be found via these links:
