PULLMAN Jakarta Central Park (PJCP), the second Pullman property in Indonesia after Bali, officially opened yesterday.
Initially operating with 212 of its total 317 rooms and with a ballroom that can fit 5,000, the hotel is the first upscale property in the West Jakarta area. The hotel is attached to the upmarket Central Park Mall and the offices and leisure entertainment of the Podomoro City Super Block.
Accor vice president Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Gerard Guillouet, said: “The opening of the PJCP is very important for us, as the Pullman brand is at the core of our upscale portfolio and the fastest growing upscale brand in Asia-Pacific.”
The hotel is targeting the business traveller, MICE and family markets, with 35 per cent of this expected from overseas.
PJCP general manager, Fabrice Mini, said: “Accor Asia Pacific Business Traveller Research 2011 surveyed more than 10,000 respondents who made business trips in the first semester of 2011.
“Jakarta and Bali are the two Indonesian destinations mostly visited by Asia-Pacific business travellers, with 73 per cent and 32 per cent of respondents having visited for business. Meanwhile, almost three quarters of domestic business travel was to Jakarta.”
The hotel, which has a contemporary, urban art-style design, has Collage, an all-day restaurant, Bunk, a two-storey lounge and café, swimming pool and sunbathe terrace, Fit & Spa Lounge and roof-top Sky Terrace Garden.
Apart from the ballroom, which can be divided into two, there are six other meeting and board rooms.
