When I was there, I can feel breezy atmosphere beside the pool. It is a perfect place to enjoy the scenery, since you can see many skyscrapers behind the swimming pool. I saw some expats sunbathing next to the pool. They whether used their own bench chair or a bench that is provided by apartment official.
You can find many green trees and plants around the swimming pool. Some of the trees were draped by a fabric with black and white checked pattern. This is reinforce the Balinese ambience here.

If you are beginner to gym workout, there is a complete guidelines of exercise movement posted on the gym wall.

Not many apartment in Jakarta have sauna as their amenity. However, Kuningan City Denpasar Residence has it. Sauna and steam room is located next to the gym. You can steam bath yourself after workout. Remember to not exceed the maximum time limit, 30 minutes, in this sauna and steam room.
Be in the same room with sauna, there is also Jacuzzi. There are two type of jacuzzi tub in this room, the round one and the square one. It is important to cleaning your body first before bathing in jacuzzi.
You can find a tennis table next to swimming pool. You should bring your own ball and bet if you want to play tennis table here.
Although I cannot find any supermarket around facility floor, I found a vending machine adjacent to swimming pool. Unfortunately the vending machine is malfunction, so I cannot purchase anything from there.
There are three types of room leased by Kuningan City, Denpasar Residence, 1BR, 2BR and 3BR. The amenities in 1BR unit includes 1 bathroom, kitchen, dining set, AC, hot water tap, access card, refrigerator, washing machine and television. For 2BR and 3BR, the amenities include AC, hot water tap, dining set, 1 bathroom (for 2BR), 2 bathroom (3BR), access card, kitchen, refrigerator, washing machine and television. Apartment official also equipped those three units with internet and cable TV.
The most noticeable differences between the three units is their room size. The size of 1BR unit is 59 sqm, 90 sqm for 2BR unit and 114 sqm for 3BR unit. For the price range, 3BR unit is the most expensive, Rp 30.000.000 ($ 2.145) per month, followed by 2BR unit, Rp 23.000.000 ($ 1.650) per month and 1BR, Rp 15.380.000 ($ 1.100).
I have an opportunity to visit 2BR unit in Denpasar Residence yesterday, and in my opinion, it was an amazing unit. The room is quite large and the brightness level is very good. You can find a large window in each room, for example in living room and bedroom. The windows allow sunlight to go through, then enlighten your room. The kitchen and dining room, nevertheless are compacted into one room, they are still seem spacious. You can walk here and there without any hinderance. If you had kids, this unit is a good place to live. There are kids room with one bed and a couple room with two beds. From balcony, you can see not so many skyscrapers around your neighbourhood. You have a broad vision and the scenery is awesome.

You can easily find Balinese ornament in apartment lobby, such as Visnu sculpture, Balinese umbrella, Balinese carving and trees draped with black and white checked pattern’s fabric.
These kinds of ornament become less and less visible once you are ascending the tower. However, if you were in facility floor, the ornament become reemerge.
In terms of noisy sound issue, I can’t find many disturbance here. I just hear a very tiny sounds from car horn below. Since a mosque is adjacent to Denpasar Residence, you can also hear adzan from facility floor. This might be a bit bothering for expats, however, I’ve never heard such a sound in a unit.
If you are seeking a place to enjoy Jakarta’s city view, Denpasar Residence in Kuningan City can be a great choice. Even from the 1st floor, many top of skyscrapers are visible. From the unit I’ve been visiting (21st floor), I saw Jakarta’s city horizon filled with low rise building (fancy houses are the most common one) and some skyscrapers.
In public spaces, you can find many surveillance camera which can guarantee your safety.
