The China Blue Room exudes an artistic ambience and pays tribute to the rich historical past of the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia and Indochina. The main dining area boasts massive floor-to-ceiling stone reliefs of a pair of Chinese gods believed to be the guards of the gates to the afterlife. One of the walls is dominated by a large black-and-white photograph of one of the sugar king Oei Tiong Ham’s concubines. Indulge in an exquisite imperial cuisine escapade and choose from several uniquely themed private dining VIP rooms.
Soekarno Room, representing Hotel Tugu Blitar, is named after Indonesia’s first president. It features collages of old photos and newspaper clippings of Soekarno, courtesy of his daughter, Megawati Soekarnoputri. The private Tugu Bali Room, inspired by Hotel Tugu’s beachfront property in Bali, celebrates Le Mayeur, a Belgian painter whose love for Ni Pollok, a Balinese Legong dancer, brought him to Bali. From a pencil sketch of Ni Pollok and antique furniture courtesy of the dancer herself, to paintings of traditional Balinese dances and an antique table from Mario Blanco, this room luxuriates in Balinese art and culture. Tugu Malang Room, the largest of the private dining rooms in Lara Djonggrang, is adorned with historical art and artefacts from Cambodia, Myanmar and Indonesia.
The China Blue Room accommodates up to 88 people.
