350-key InterContinental in Jakarta to comprise hotel and serviced residences
17 December, 2014 – InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a management agreement with PT. Ciputra Puri Trisula, part of PT Ciputra Property Tbk, a leading property developer in Indonesia, to develop an InterContinental hotel in Jakarta. Located in the central business district (CBD) of West Jakarta, Puri Kembangan, the new development will comprise the 200-room InterContinental Jakarta West and 150-key InterContinental Jakarta West Residences.
The new InterContinental Jakarta West & InterContinental Jakarta West Residences will be part of the 7.4-hectare Ciputra International complex owned by PT. Ciputra Puri Trisula, which will comprise ten high-rise towers. When complete, InterContinental Jakarta West will be situated alongside six office buildings and three apartment blocks, linked by a lifestyle and retail section.
The hotel will feature a number of food and beverage options, including an all-day dining, a deli, a speciality restaurant and a lobby lounge. Guests opting for some time away from the bustle of the city can take respite at the spa or the club lounge, whilst those staying at the serviced apartments can take a break at the residents’ lounge or enjoy joint facilities such as the pool and health club.
Catering for meetings and events, InterContinental Jakarta West will also offer a ballroom, meetings spaces as well as a business centre for guests who require access to business facilities on the go.
Guests will also appreciate the hotel’s strategic location along the recently completed Jakarta Outer Ring Road, which is a short distance from the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and provides quick access to core areas of the city.
Clarence Tan, Senior Vice President, Development, Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA), IHG, said: “Indonesia has been a key growth market for IHG in recent years and the country now holds our largest pipeline in South East Asia. There is still much room for growth in the various cities across the country and West Jakarta, as one of the fastest growing districts in the city and the capital’s next CBD, is the ideal location to open our second InterContinental in Jakarta. We are delighted to be working with PT. Ciputra Puri Trisula to launch InterContinental Jakarta West and are confident the hotel and serviced apartments will be a huge draw to guests travelling to Jakarta for both business and leisure.”
Commenting on the partnership, Artadinata Djangkar, Director of Ciputra Group, said: “West Jakarta is rapidly developing as a commercial hub. With two convention centres and other mega-complex developments coming up over the next few years we anticipate that the area will become a preferred destination for meetings and events in Jakarta. This is a great time for us to be developing InterContinental Jakarta West and we foresee the strategic location and strong design element of the hotel and residences to be a huge draw to people travelling to West Jakarta. We are also very pleased to be working with IHG and look forward to opening the hotel in the years to come.”
IHG currently has 13 properties across four brands in Indonesia: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. There are currently two InterContinental hotels in Indonesia: InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza and InterContinental Bali.
InterContinental Jakarta West joins a pipeline of 29 properties opening in Indonesia over the next three to five years. There are four InterContinental hotels and resorts in the pipeline, including InterContinental Dago Pakar and InterContinental Bali Canggu Resort.
