Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans to launch several new properties in Indonesia.
Speaking at the 2015 Tourism Hotel Investment & Networking Conference in Bali this week, the Swiss hotel group’s chief operating officer for the Middle East & Asia, Andreas Mattmüller, announced firm plans to launch in Bali and possible expansion into other Indonesian destinations.
The Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran will open in Bali in the third quarter of 2016, marking the company’s debut in Indonesia. It will provide 295 rooms and suites, a rooftop lounge and restaurant, a spa, library, fitness centre, kids’ club, business centre and meeting rooms, including a 500m² ballroom.
“As the company’s first hotel in Indonesia, this is a perfect place to start,” said Mattmüller. “Bali is a holidaymaker’s paradise, and the exclusive beach location of this resort with its unrestricted views of the bay is certainly set to be hugely popular.”
He added that Movenpick is planning to expand further in Indonesia, with ongoing discussions about new partnerships in Jakarta, Surabaya and Bandung.
“Indonesia is a key market for our expansion in this exciting region for the hospitality sector,” Mattmüller said.
Mövenpick’s Indonesian plans form part of a broader Southeast Asian expansion strategy. The company currently has a pipeline of eight new hotels and resorts which are expected to open over the next three years in Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
These hotels will double the company’s existing eight-property portfolio in Asia, which includes four hotels and resorts in Thailand and one each in Singapore, Vietnam, China and the Philippines.
