Given that the price of land to build comfortable housing has soared in recent years, the noted developer Intiland has come up with a brilliant solution: The Rosebay, a low-rise residence with a resort-like character and amazing design. Sitting snugly amid its natural surroundings, the compound offers the essentials for happiness to tenants. The urban dream of a luxurious house in the best location without having to empty the wallet or changing lifestyles can be realized here.

Surabaya is known for its impressive–and well preserved–buildings that feature imperial and oriental style architectural styles. One of the city’s strongest architectural accents can be found its old quarter, where the House of Sampoerna sits. The stately, colonial-style compound features several buildings as well as a museum that tells the story of Liem Seeng Tee, the founder of the Sampoerna tobacco company.

Slowly, however, this attitude is shifting, as a younger generation emerges and the internet fosters a fresher dynamic in the city’s daily life. One example of this is the pioneering choice of Tauzia Hotel Management to launch in Surabaya its first Yello offering, introducing the concept of chic, fresh and spirited accommodations, with the opening of the Yello Hotel Jemursari Surabaya.
