Jakarta, Indonesia (ID)
for access to departure times, security waiting times, Airport Wi-Fis, lounge access and more. Soekarno-Hatta International Airport
Soekarno–Hatta International Airport has an 18-hole course just to the left of the main gate of the airport, next to the Sheraton Bandara Hotel. A taxi will get you there in 10 minutes. A round costs USD 60 (USD 75 at weekends) as a non-member; you can rent clubs there. You’ll need 9 hours layover to get over there, enjoy a game and make it back to the airport.
Try the Taman Sari Spa at the far end of Departures in Terminal 2F, just past the small Starbucks. They provide massage packages from about IDR 120,000 (USD 12), with slippers, a sarong, disposable underwear and towels included. A shower’s also included, and these aren’t provided free at the airport.
Pass the time reading a book or get some fresh air in this beautifully-maintained garden area next to Terminal 2F. The area also houses ticket booths for buses into Jakarta.
FM7 Resort is 15 minutes’ drive from the terminals, with well-organised free transfers to and from the airport and large, clean, well-insulated rooms. (Always book your outgoing shuttle when checking in, and staff will suggest the best shuttle to use in the morning, factoring in traffic and roads). A great base if you need to be at the airport early. Rooms from EUR 47.
Showers are available only in two lounges.
