Dharmawangsa was an 11th century Hindu king from East Java who laid the foundations of the great Majapahit Empire — so it is fitting that the hotel's interior design pays tribute to the extraordinary artistic achievements of the era. The heart and soul of the hotel consists of the central Majapahit Hall. Here, two musicians and a stall serving Javan sweetmeats and teas flank an obelisk with 14th century temple decoration. Off this hall radiate four lounges, sumptuously decorated by interior design maestro Jaya Ibrahim.
Natural ivory-toned cladding has acquired an attractive darker patina, the gardens and paddy fields have grown in, and the extremely strong architectural presence of the main building is no longer so starkly visible from the surrounding vegetation.

"I slashed the budget, changed the design, and worked with the architect and his team to come up with something far less glitzy, but much more modern," he says.
