Archipelago International is expanding to the Bogor Regency in West Java with the opening of The Alana Hotel & Conference Center – Sentul City.
The 271-room and suite property is located in Sentul City, a 3,000ha integrated township situated between South Jakarta and Bogor.
Owned by Sentul City, the developer of the township, the hotel is equipped with an all-day dining restaurant with 350 seats, and 15 meeting rooms, including a ballroom for up to 400 people.
The hotel is targeting business events and families seeking weekend getaway. Located an hour’s drive from Jakarta on the Jakarta-Bogor highway, the city serves as an alternative to Puncak or Bandung.
Apart from the swimming pools, other facilities like the gym, spa and kids club will be open by the end of this month, while the Sky Lounge with a capacity of up to 200 people will be ready in October.
Daniel Hutagalung, general manager of the hotel, said: “We have (soft opened) since April and the hotel has been running an average of 68 per cent occupancy.”
Families can also choose from outdoor activities such as archery, shooting, pony riding and dining in the Ah Poong floating market, which is a five-minute walk from the hotel.
“(Visitors) can also do other activities such as flying fox or kite flying at Taman Budaya. We are also cooperating with the Jungle Land Theme Park for special entry fares for our guests,” Hutagalung added.
Furthermore, with the Aeon Mall under construction in the city, which will be the biggest in Asia when it opens in 2019, Hutagalung is optimistic of the hotel performance in the future as Sentul City continues to develop facilities.
