Plaza Indonesia is located in central Jakarta and is often referred to as PI. Plaza Indonesia is the first high end shopping centre in Indonesia. It opened its doors in 1990. Plaza Indonesia is located on the prominent corner of Jakarta's famous landmark, the selamat datang (welcome) statue. Still leading as one of the finest shopping centres in the country, it was previously occupied by Indonesia's first Sogo flagship department store as well as numerous international fashion labels including Gucci, Versace, Louis Vuitton and the latest being Zara's Indonesia flagship store.

Plaza Indonesia is made up of four floors occupied by enticing designer boutiques that will make your eyes pop out of their sockets. These boutiques include different international fashion labels like Versace, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and even the very first Zara store in Indonesia.

Aside from these labels, there are other stores for your every need like banks, beauty and health stores, novelty or gift shops, jewelry stores, electronic stores, sports houses, etc. Of course, no shopping mall would be complete without having sumptuous food stops. At Plaza Indonesia, you can enjoy lunch at Secret Recipe then have a relaxing chit chat over coffee at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or at Starbucks. If you’re craving for some local dishes served in a casual setting then you must try the Sari Ratu Restaurant at the lower basement.

The mall had another breakthrough when they expanded and opened Plaza Indonesia Entertainment X’nter which was linked by a bridge to the main building. This mall is also located adjacent to an equally beautiful hotel, the Grand Hyatt Hotel Jakarta. This hotel has a notable reputation for providing superb service to its clients in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Such positive notes made this hotel a favorite among business and leisure travelers.

Its cafes and restaurants include Sushi Tei, Imperial Treasure and Dome (coffeehouse). In 2003, the mall expanded and opened Plaza Indonesia Entertainment X'nter, linked by a bridge to the original shopping centre. 2007 saw the development of Keraton Grand Hyatt Residence and a new office tower located above another new extension of the shopping centre. Grand Hyatt Jakarta is also a part of this mixed-use development and is a prominent landmark in the city.

Sogo closed its flagship department store at Plaza Indonesia on February 28, 2007. The previous Sogo Supermarket however is still operating after being redeveloped into the Sogo Food Hall. The west wing of the previously occupied space has been renovated, featuring Indonesia's first Debenhams department store and a Marks and Spencer store. The former main department store space reopened in September 2007 as luxury boutiques and restaurants.
