Best Western’s Indonesian momentum continues to gather pace, with the company opening an upscale hotel in Sulawesi for the first time in April.

The new 162-room BEST WESTERN PLUS Makassar Beach joins an existing portfolio of 12 hotels across Indonesia in a pipeline of 25 more to come over the next three years.

“As Indonesia emerges as an economic power, trade and tourism is spreading out into the country’s many outlying islands and provinces. As the 11th largest island in the world and home to outstanding cultural and ecological diversity, Sulawesi is becoming a new regional centre of trade and tourism,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western’s Vice President of International Operations for Asia & the Middle East.
