Nestled on the shore of East Java, Surabaya is Indonesia’s second-largest city. Part of Superblock Tunjungan City, the Four Points by Sheraton Surabaya is conveniently located in the heart of the business district. Tunjungan Plaza—East Java’s largest retail mall, with shops, restaurants, cafés, and cinemas—is just next door. The Surabaya train station is only a 10-minute drive away, and Juanda International Airport (SUB) is 23 kilometers from our hotel.
Explore the capital of East Java, home to a fascinating array of historic sites, architecture, and diverse culture. Situated in “old Surabaya,” the House of Sampoerna is a top attraction. Built in 1862, this preserved Dutch colonial-style compound is home to a museum, an art gallery, a café, a souvenir shop, and a production plant for making Dji Sam Soe, Indonesia’s most prestigious hand-rolled kretek cigarette. Admire stunning views by taking a lift to the top of the tower at Masjid Al Akbar Surabaya, the city’s largest mosque, renowned for its blue-green domes. Featuring lovely glass panels and a tranquil setting, the historic landmark of Gereja Kelahiran Santa Perawan Maria is the oldest church in Surabaya. The Ampel Mosque and its Arabic Market, the Chinese Mosque ChengHo, and the giant dragon statues at Kenjeran Beach are also nearby.
Take a day excursion to see one of East Java’s most famous attractions, the volcanic Mount Bromo in Bromo Tengger Semaru National Park. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trowulan, containing the archaeological remains of Majapahit Kingdom, is also fascinating.
For a bit of fun, play a round of golf on one of the city’s numerous courses. And after a long day of exploring, head to G-Walk. Popular with the younger crowd and tourists, it has a bazaar, food stalls, Citra Raya (the Singapore of Surabaya), and many bars.
