The festive season of December is definetely just around the corner. To celebrate this, Raffles Jakarta is providing lots of exciting festive activities to explore: from master chef dinner to garden tree-lighting ceremony, here’s what the hotel has in store for you and your family.

#IAMCHANGE Bracelet Campaign by Happy Hearts Indonesia

Happy Hearts Indonesia is launching #IAMCHANGE bracelet event by Happy Hearts Indonesia at the annual Raffles Jakarta Garden Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 29. In case you didn’t know, Happy Hearts Indonesia is a non-profit organisation dedicated to rebuilding schools in underprivileged areas. Since 2006, Happy Hearts Indonesia has built more than 132 schools and has reached more than 50,000 children in Indonesia.

The #IAMCHANGE bracelet is a part of Happy Hearts Indonesia’s fundraising initiative to support the five-year campaign #IAMCHANGE. The prospect of the campaign is to rebuild 200 schools in Nusa Tenggara Timur by 2023. Designed exclusively by Greco Barcelona, the bracelet is crafted from 18k white gold and set with a diamond to add a touch of sparkle. All proceeds from sales of the bracelet will go towards school rebuilding in East Nusa Tenggara.

The Garden Tree Lighting Ceremony will be accompanied with a special performance in which you can sing along with your favourite Christmas carols with a choir. Expect a virtual tableau of art and cuisine, in which a palette of sights, sounds, textures and aromas create a delightful sensory experience at Arts Café by Raffles on New Year’s Eve. On the night, fireworks are going to be the show-stopper in The Countdown Party, because what’s New Year without fireworks?

The MasterChef NYE Celebration

In the spirit of merriment, Raffles Jakarta is inviting Jess Liemantara to join them from MasterChef Australia’s season 10. During her MasterChef Australia days, Jess amazed the judges with her creations, particularly her desserts. This holiday, indulge yourself in the dessert queen’s signature dishes exclusively at Raffles Jakarta for Christmas Dinner on December 24 and Christmas Brunch on December 25. In addition, during the New Year’s Eve celebrations, Jess will serve you the dishes that have taken her to win each week on her MasterChef journey.

Elsewhere, patrons can challenge Jess with the “Mystery Box Challenge” as part of “Money Can’t Buy Experience” presented to you by Accor Hotels. Available for two people per night, you’ll get to surprise Chef Jess with mystery ingredients that must be cooked and prepared by herself. Not only that, you’ll also get to watch her live in action as she prepares your dishes within given time. The NYE celebration is priced at Rp 1.5m++ per person including free-flow wines, beers, and selected cocktails. Meanwhile, the Money Can’t Buy Experience is available from December 19 to January 4.
