As the tallest building in Central Java, the 28-story hotel offers a haven of tranquility and space high above Solo, “The Spirit of Java,” once a seat of the distinguished Mataram empire, and the heart of Javanese culture.
A Modern Sanctuary
Innovative, avant-garde design meets traditional accents for a uniquely Javanese aesthetic.
The monumental, high-ceilinged lobby features batik-inspired art that sets the tone for a distinctive stay that blends contemporary sophistication with local heritage.
An Allure of Contrasts
Solo combines the charm of a small city with the ambitions of a metropolis, steeped in ancient traditions and heritage.
The older of the two royal capitals of Central Java, Surakarta, or Solo as it is better known, preserves its rich history in elegant walled royal palaces. Today, the city is one of the fastest developing economic centers of Indonesia, with Alila Solo rising above its main avenue known for its vibrant dining and retail venues. Discover a dynamic blend of heritage and modernity, alongside an astounding landscape of rice fields and volcanic peaks.
Court Rituals and Culture
Solo’s court society is regarded as the cradle of Javanese culture, with its rich traditions in dance, music and art.
In a nod to centuries-old traditions, royal festivals are still held with great pomp and majesty, and witnessing one is an unforgettable event. Explore classical Javanese dance with its intricate hand movements and the beauty and history of Solo’s traditionally dyed batiks. About two hours from Solo, the 9th-century Borobudur temple is the world’s largest Buddhist monument.
