Jakarta Patio Furniture

Im buying a new patio set and I've seen one described as a Jakarta Wooden Patio Set 5pc but I've never heard of that wood before and I don't know if it is hardwood or softwood.

Here is a link

It has been suggested to me that it might describe the region it comes from and not the actual type of wood

I'm wondering if this a common wood used in garden furniture for most of the furniture I've looked at was eucalyptus. 

I'd appreciate you thoughts on this and thanks to anyone who contributes

    Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and the name given to this set of furniture. Type of wood used is unspecified, but given the price and the origin is highly unlikely to be hardwood or from a sustainable source.
