Jakarta, 3 December 2013: InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, and PT Duta Anggada Realty Tbk, have signed an agreement to develop Holiday Inn & Suites Jakarta Gajah Mada, adding to IHG’s continued growth in Indonesia. 

Located in the bustling Jalan Gajah Mada in North Jakarta, the 447-room Holiday Inn & Suites Jakarta Gajah Madah will not only feature hotel rooms, but also serviced apartments for guests who want to book extended stays at the hotel. The mixed-use development is opposite the LTC Glodok Mall, a short drive away from Jakarta’s Central Business district and easy access from Jakarta International Airport, making it suitable for both business and leisure travellers in the Indonesian capital.

Commenting on its partnership with IHG, Ventje Suardana, President Director, PT Duta Anggada Realty Tbk, said, “The Holiday Inn & Suites Jakarta Gajah Mada will provide a good mix of facilities to cater to business and leisure travel in Jakarta. We are looking forward to working with IHG and leveraging the hotelier’s expertise for the success of this new hotel.”

Based in Jakarta, Duta Anggada Realty Tbk is one of the country’s leading property developers and is under Duta Anggada Group, a group of companies with more than 40 years of experience in the residential, office and retail sector. The company boasts a track record of developing well-known properties in Jakarta including condominiums, Citywalk Sudirman and Chase Plaza along Jalan Sudirman.

Clarence Tan, IHG’s Chief Operating Officer, South East Asia & Resorts, said, “Indonesia has seen very strong economic progress and industry trends have really fuelled the demand for our Holiday Inn brand. The Holiday Inn & Suites Jakarta Gajah Mada will be our first property in Indonesia to answer the increasing demand for travel in Jakarta, especially those who now need to stay for longer each time they visit.”

Indonesia is currently the largest development pipeline for IHG in South East Asia with over 20 hotels slated to open in the next few years. This includes six Holiday Inn and more than 10 Holiday Inn Express hotels to cater to the country’s growing midscale market. 

Holiday Inn & Suites Jakarta Gajah Mada is expected to open in 2015.
