Bangsal Merah Boepati
Bangsal Merah Boepati, a tribute to the East Java history from mid-18th century to the end of 20th century, is based on the lives of the regents of East Java, successors of Kyai Brondong through several generations. Research reveals that the two regents who once ruled Surabaya together got into a war against each other.
As a result one of the regents’ sisters ran away and seeked for shelter in a ship that belonged to a man of the Ching Dinasty, who arrived in Java in 1754. Some of the artworks related to these late regents, discovered by Tugu Hotels, demonstrate a fusion between traditional Javanese culture and Straits Chinese influence.
The Sugar Baron Room
This room is created in commemorating the memory of a sugar baron of Southeast Asia who lived in Java, Oei Tiong Ham. In the early 20th century, Oei Tiong Ham was one of the richest men in Asia. This room features very rare and exquisite Chinese antiquities that originated from the periods between the Han Dinasty and the Ching Dinasty. The Sugar Baron Room is available for exclusive lunch, dinner, or private conferences for up to 40 people.
