The Bintaro Plaza Residences is a midrange apartment complex located in Bintaro, just across the street from the mall Bintaro Plaza. As of today, it consists of a tower named Altiz and another one being built, Breeze, that should be completed by 2019.
I stayed there for a few days and this is my review about it.
Bintaro is a planned township that consists of 9 sectors split between South Jakarta and South Tangerang. In recent years, it has developed quickly with the arrival of thousands of new residents, mostly middle to upper class Indonesian families.
Their interest with Bintaro is easy to understand: First, it is relatively close from the business centers of Jakarta (SCBD, Sudirman or TB Simatupang). Second, it is still a rather laid-back neighborhood (by Indonesian standards), relatively clean and not plagued by traffic jams. Third, there are many reputed facilities and services such as malls, schools, hospitals, etc.
The Bintaro Plaza Residences are located at a strategic intersection, just 2 minutes from the Bintaro Plaza Mall. The latter is rather old but it has a fair selection of popular shops, restaurants, services and entertainment (XXI Cinema).
From there, using Jalan Bintaro Utama 3, you can go easily to the rest of Bintaro, especially the CBD and Bintaro Xchange Mall. On the other side, using the toll road Jakarta-Serpong, you have access to South Jakarta (30 minutes to Senayan) or to the airport (1 hour).
Finally, the Pondok Ranji train station is 5 minutes away and it connects Bintaro to Central Jakarta (Tanah Abang) in only 21 minutes for less than IDR5,000.
Facilities and Services
The Bintaro Plaza Residences (Altiz tower) have limited facilities at the moment. It might be because the occupancy of the building is still low, or because all the towers of the complex are not finished yet.
Anyway, there is only a minimarket: No laundry shops, no restaurants, no ATM, etc. Considering the mall Bintaro Plaza is just across the street, it wasn’t a big problem for me, though. You can go there to eat, to watch movies or to buy groceries (Hero Supermarket).
The swimming pool is rather large, but the whole area doesn’t look that nice. I was surprised by the fact that there wasn’t any long chair to lay down for instance. Since it is located near the entrance, you can also see and hear cars, which is not exactly relaxing.
There is also a small playground for children. No fitness room/gym.
The overall appearance of Bintaro Plaza Residence is good. In particular, the lobby is well-designed and it looks exclusive. Some areas could use a little paint, especially the corridors that are a bit dirty. Some windows also have traces of dirt and cement that date back from the time the towers were constructed.
Prices at Bintaro Plaza Residences may vary greatly depending, among other things, on the floor, the unit type, the room condition and the furnishings. Here are estimates from online ads:
Studio Type (24m2) – Furnished:
- Rental: IDR 4.5M per month

2-Bedroom Type (55m2) – Furnished
- Rental: IDR 10M per month
- Near the train station Pondok Ranji and the toll Jakarta-Serpong exit
- Good quality construction with a luxury feeling, especially in the lobby area.
- No gym
- Noise from the Breeze tower construction
