IHG and PT Hotel Dago Pakar have signed a management agreement for the 204-room and 19-villa InterContinental Bandung Dago Pakar in the prestigious Dago neighbourhood, northeast of the city centre in Bandung, Indonesia.
Set to open this year, the luxurious property is located in the city’s Dago Pakar development and promises views over the manicured greens of the 18-hole Mountain View Golf Course, as well as Bandung city. The new hotel is also located just seven kilometres from Husein Sastranegara International Airport and under three kilometres from the commercial hub.
Purnawan Suriadi, Director, PT Hotel Dago Pakar, said, “The reputation and calibre of the InterContinental brand means that it is the perfect management partner for a luxury destination for both business and leisure travellers. IHG has a proven track record of success in quality and guest satisfaction both internationally and in the region, which is in line with what we want to achieve within the Dago Pakar development.”
PT. Bandung Pakar & PT. Hotel Dago Pakar is the developer of the exclusive Dago Pakar project, which includes the 18-hole golf course, commercial, retail and residential areas as well as an international school and botanical gardens. The upcoming InterContinental Bandung Dago Pakar will be a part of the master-planned city development.
The hotel will offer one of the largest ballrooms in Bandung, making it a preferred venue for events and meetings. There will also be an all-day dining and a specialty restaurant. Guests who want to keep fit can make use of the health club facilities in the hotel, or indulge in a relaxing massage at the spa.
Clarence Tan, Chief Operating Officer, South East Asia and Resorts, IHG, added, “Indonesia is a key market for IHG, and home to one of our largest development pipelines in South East Asia. The new Indonesian property is a strategic part of our expansion plans for the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand, which will more than double in the country during the same period. InterContinental Bandung Dago Pakar will provide a host of exceptional experiences for our guests and cater to those looking for the very best accommodation and facilities.”
