Hilton Worldwide has signed a management agreement with PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari to open the first DoubleTree by Hilton property in Indonesia.
Scheduled to open in 2014, the 261-room DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro, Indonesia will be conveniently located two kilometers away from the ‘golden triangle’, Jakarta’s key commercial zone and the high-end Jalan Diponegoro area, where several embassies and many government officials reside.
“As we aggressively expand our footprint in the region through our award-winning brands, DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro marks the entry of a third brand under Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio into Indonesia, following Hilton Bandung and Conrad Bali. Backed by the strong partnership with PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari, we are confident that the hotel will continue to ensure our leadership position in commercial capitals in Asia Pacific,” said Hilton Worldwide’s Senior Vice President – Development for Middle East and Asia Pacific, Andrew Clough.
The 15-storey DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro will have an all-day dining restaurant and a bar, as well as a business center, health club, a spa, an outdoor pool, a ballroom and car parking facilities.
“DoubleTree by Hilton continues to introduce the world’s travellers to a rapidly-growing portfolio of remarkable city center hotel locations around the world,” said DoubleTree by Hilton’s global head, Rob Palleschi.
“The DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro is a significant milestone for us and will be an exciting new addition to our hospitality offerings across the Asia Pacific region, as we create a rewarding and friendly hotel experience for the DoubleTree by Hilton globally.”
Located along Jalan Pegangsaan Timur in Central Jakarta and within walking distance from Cikini train station, DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro is in close proximity to Jakarta’s central business district where a number of large financial institutions, multinational corporations, Embassies, large retail malls including Grand Indonesia and Plaza Indonesia, as well as the National Monument are situated.
“We believe that the DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta-Diponegoro creates an ideal business combination of Hilton Worldwide’s global legacy of hospitality with our strong local market knowledge,” said Kentjana Widjaja, director, PT Nurtirta Nusa Lestari.
“The hotel will feature an urban-resort concept, with extensive landscaping and a well-designed spa facility that we will inspire an outstanding hotel for both holiday makers and business travellers.”
