This milestone was achieved following the launch of a series of Indonesian hotels in recent weeks. The 104-room Swiss-Belinn Gajah Mada Medan in North Sumatra and 150-room Swiss-Belhotel Bogor in West Java both started welcoming guests in May 2019 and the 107-room Swiss-Belhotel Serpong opened in southwest Jakarta on 1 June, 2019.This trio of new openings helped to boost Swiss-Belhotel International’s Indonesian collection to 72 hotels and resorts comprising 10,873 rooms and suites.
Swiss-Belhotel International’s chairman and president, Gavin M. Faull said: “Reaching 10,000 rooms in Indonesia is a huge achievement for our company and I would like to thank our entire team and our esteemed local partners for making it possible. Indonesia is one of the world’s most exciting markets, with rising affluence and accessibility helping to drive tourism all over the archipelago. We look forward to unveiling even more exceptional Indonesian hotels in future, as we continue to expand our presence nationwide.”Since arriving in Indonesia over 25 years ago, Swiss-Belhotel International has built a portfolio of hotels and resorts across the country and is working on its expansion aiming to open the 227-room Swiss-Belhotel Darmo Surabaya late this year and the 252-room Swiss-Belhotel Solo early 2020.
