    Yesterday Brothel - Today? ... Sharia-compliant hotel



    Illegal brothel Alexis closed, Jakarta Governor urges workers to find jobs in Sharia-compliant hotels




    At the reception desk of a Sharia hotel in Jakarta, religion is on show.
    Guests are checked in by young women wearing matching purple jilbabs that fall across the shoulders of their black jackets.


    Key points:

    • In Jakarta Sharia hotels are on the rise and they are free to refuse service to unmarried couples
    • This week Governor Anies Basdewan fulfilled his campaign promise to close a notorious brothel
    • Former employees are being encouraged to work in Sharia hotels


    There is a collection box for the local mosque in a corner of the lobby, and the hotel's mission statement is fastened to an adjacent wall,
    making it clear this is a "halal hotel".

    The front desk staff of the Hotel Sofyan are trained to catch out any couples who look like breaching the hotel's adherence to sharia law.

    "If they are not married, they cannot stay here," explains Asep, one of the front desk staff.

    Sharia is the Islamic religious code that mandates — among other things — modest clothing and behaviour.

    I don't understand why that's "wowsers" or were you mocking?

    Ban Chang Palace Hotel in Ban Chang, Rayong, had a splendid selection a few years back.

    splendid soapy shower opportunities.

    All under a grand.

    Now?

    I know not.

    Room 601 was my preferred appointment. Corner room on the 6th floor over looking the pool.
    breakfast was OK.

    Probably all changed now.
