Taking Tugu Malang Hotel Tour Through Time
This place has a tour?
Yeah, it’s bigger than it looks.
Tugu Malang Hotel Tour tl;dr
- So Much Stuff
- So Much History
- Simply WOW
You might not know it from first impressions, but some things like icebergs have a story to tell hidden below the surface. I couldn’t tell from my first walkthrough of Tugu Malang Hotel the history behind everything that was featured throughout the property.
I like this place. It’s not only a story of the hotel and the culture, but also a story about his life and family.
Where Is It
The hotel tour takes through the entire property:
- From the Lobby
- Room Suites
- Art Gallery and Beyond
What About It
Everything throughout the property has a story to tell:
- A figurine might be a Javanese artifact
- That room might be a room that was used as a weekly gathering place for his family
- The hotel was host to every Indonesian President
- So on and so forth
A lot of artwork, decor, and names are shrouded in Javanese myth and legends. There’s a lot of history in every detail and it shows.
I Like It
I love the eclectic interests and directions the decor goes in while at its core centering around the owner, Anhar Setjadibrata, and his family’s history and Javanese culture. I identify with his sense of grandeur and imagine that he and I enjoy similar aesthetics.
You need to go on the tour for yourself and see what screams out to your sense of style and interests.
