Accor is expanding its presence in Indonesia with the signing of two hotels at the new Yogyakarta International Airport.

The opening of Novotel and ibis New Yogyakarta International Airport Kulon Progo will mark the arrival of the two brands to Yogyakarta, one of the country’s largest cities and most culturally-rich destinations.

Efficient sharing

This dual-branded project will feature a total of 413 keys in a single development, with two distinctive wings connected by one façade which welcomes guests with landscaped foliage. Each property will have its own unique design and dedicated facilities, while sharing back-of-house areas to enhance efficiency.

Novotel New Yogyakarta International Airport Kulon Progo will provide guests with 189 rooms, along with a swimming pool, children’s pool, kids’ area, spa and fitness centre. All-day dining and refreshments are available at the restaurant and bar with 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. Two floors of meeting space will comprise a 700-sq m ballroom and nine meeting rooms. The 11-storey Novotel is contained within a fully glazed wing with a blue, grey and brown colour palette.

Complementary ibis

ibis New Yogyakarta International Airport Kulon Progo will feature 224 rooms in a nine-storey glass and aluminium tower. The grey and charcoal façade is designed to complement its neighbour and the hotel’s interiors – including its guestrooms – will showcase works by local artists. Dedicated facilities at the ibis will include a lobby lounge, gym, kids’ room, nursery and an all-day restaurant. Three meeting rooms and a pre-function area will be available for events.

These two new-built hotels are owned by PT. Lentera Prosper Indo and will be managed by Accor. Currently under construction, this dual-branded property is scheduled to open its doors in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Key market

Garth Simmons, CEO, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said: “Indonesia is a key market for Accor, so we are happy to collaborate with PT. Lentera Prosper Indo on this important project. As the gateway to one of Indonesia’s largest and most enchanting cities, Yogyakarta International Airport is a key destination that has the scope to expand significantly in the coming years. These two exceptional hotels will cater to the rising number of domestic and international travellers, as well as event organisers at this up-and-coming aviation hub, while complementing our existing locations in downtown Yogyakarta.”

A spokesperson for PT. Lentera Prosper Indo, added: “We are delighted to partner with Accor, a worldwide leader in the hospitality industry, to introduce the first internationally-branded hotels to Yogyakarta International Airport. I am confident that the strong reputation and service excellence of the Novotel and ibis brands will attract business and leisure travellers alike. I look forward to working together with our esteemed partners as we bring these exciting hotels to life.”

Indonesian presence

Accor operates 130 hotels in Indonesia and has a healthy pipeline of 53 projects across the country. Novotel and ibis New Yogyakarta International Airport Kulon Progo will complement the group’s five existing hotels in Yogyakarta, under the ibis, ibis Styles, Novotel Suites, Grand Mercure and MGallery Hotel Collection brands.

Other projects in the pipeline include two on the popular holiday island of Bali: Mercure Bali Jimbaran, a 217-room property appearing in Q2 2023 and Tribe Bali, adding a further 200 keys in 2025.
