INTERCONTINENTAL Hotels Group (IHG) has entered into a management agreement with Indonesia’s Ciputra Puri Trisula, part of Ciputra Property, to develop the third InterContinental property in the country.
Located in the CBD of West Jakarta, Puri Kembangan, the new development comprises the 200-room InterContinental Jakarta West and 150-key InterContinental Jakarta West Residences, which will be part of the 74,000m2 Ciputra International Complex owned by Ciputra Puri Trisula.
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 F&B options such as an all-day diner, a deli, a specialty restaurant and a lobby lounge. For recreational facilities, guests at the hotel can go to the spa or club lounge, whilst those staying at the serviced apartments can enjoy the residents’ lounge or joint facilities such as the pool and health club.
Catering to business travellers as well, InterContinental Jakarta West will offer a ballroom, meeting spaces as well as a business centre.
The hotel is a short distance away from the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and its location at Jakarta Outer Ring Road provides quick access to core areas of the city.
Clarence Tan, senior vice president, development, Asia, Middle East & Africa, 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.”
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.”
InterContinental Jakarta West joins IHG’s pipeline of 29 properties opening in Indonesia over the next five years. There are four InterContinental properties in the pipeline, including InterContinental Dago Pakar and InterContinental Bali Canggu Resort.
