Original Story and Photographs from Jurnal Rosid.
Alila Jakarta welcomed Rosid, an Indonesian blogger who writes predominantly of culture and tourism in the country. In his article, he writes of his experience at Alila Jakarta from the modern minimalist designs to the various dishes he dined on during his stay.
