The Hotel and Facilities

Hotel Episode Gading Serpong is a four-star hotel featuring 320 rooms, offering Deluxe, Premier, Executive and Suites room types. The hotel is designed with Baduy and Peranakan influences, and the integration of these two local cultures can be seen in every detail throughout the hotel.

Boasting the theme of “Unfolding History, Retelling the Story”, the hotel explores local wisdom and spotlights the Baduy and Peranakan culture, which is known as the cultural identity of the Banten region and its surroundings. These cultural influences can be seen in the interior details that utilise a mix of woven fabrics from Baduy handicrafts and ornaments typical of the Peranakan culture.

The hotel’s dining venue, Babah Ramu Dine and Bar, presents a dining experience that features an array of Banten and Peranakan cuisine including Rabeg Kambing, Angeun Lada, and Sate Bandeng from Serang. Guests can also indulge in processed drinks that use honey and palm sugar from Baduy as one of the signature beverages, such as Lahang, a traditional Baduy drink that comes from the sap tree that utilises a natural distillation process.

Sandjong Spa offers a variety of traditional treatments ranging from body massage, lulur (scrub), dry massage and reflexology. One of the main treatments offered at the spa is the traditional Chinese care for mothers after giving birth. Body treatments at the spa utilise oils from traditional spices.

Moreover, the hotel holds four philosophical pillars. The first is cultural conservation, the hotel strives to be actively involved in maintaining and preserving Banten culture. The second is traditional culinary, the hotel is committed to preserving Banten’s local cuisine by incorporating it into its food and beverage offerings. The third is supporting Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), the hotel is committed to supporting the growth of MSMEs by providing facilities as well as prioritising MSME products to sell at the Soroso souvenir shop. The fourth is supporting events, considering that Banten has the potential and opportunity to become a MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Convention and Exhibition) province in Indonesia. With its high-quality products and services, Hotel Episode Gading Serpong works together with related parties to make Banten a MICE-destination.
