by | 30 Oct 2021 | Hotel Projects, Pipeline, Projects

A peek inside the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database reveals that many of Indonesia’s new hotel projects are concentrated around Jakarta and Bali.

In the next few years, Indonesia’s hospitality scene is set to grow by 120 hotel schemes and 21,847 rooms, our research indicates. We take a closer look at which markets will see the most growth – and pick out some of the most hotly anticipated developments.

Indonesia’s hotel openings by year

In what little remains of 2021, an impressive 25 hotels with 3,910 rooms are due to go live across this sprawling archipelago. Next year, 21 openings will bring 3,173 additional keys to bear, while things will calm down a bit in 2023, with only 13 launches and 2,394 new rooms currently on the cards. However, for 2024 and beyond, another 61 schemes and 12,370 keys have already been lined up.

Of Indonesia’s 120 new hotels, the vast majority (75) will be in the four-star segment, with the remainder (45) falling into the five-star category.

Fastest growing hotel markets in Indonesia

The capital Jakarta will see more growth than any other market, with 24 hotels and 4,453 rooms scheduled to open in the coming years. Bali, its nearest challenger, will expand its offering by 21 properties and 3,700 keys.

Elsewhere, Bandung, the country’s tech hub, will get six additional hotels with 978 rooms. And four projects are due to be completed in both the port city of Surabaya and on Bintan Island, bringing 975 and 810 keys respectively.

Key hotel brands expanding in Indonesia

The Ascott’s Harris Hotels is by far the country’s fastest growing hotel brand – it has 21 projects and 3,818 rooms in the pipeline.

This staggering performance puts the prolific flag way ahead of its nearest rivals, Aston and Swiss-Belhotel International Hotels & Resorts. Both of these will open six properties apiece, adding 1,077 keys to the former’s ranks and 971 to the latter’s.

Two stunning new hotels in Indonesia to look out for

Due to launch in Q3 2023, the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Jakarta promises to be one of South-East Asia’s most important openings in years. Part of a 74-storey mixed-use development, it’ll certainly be a striking addition to the city’s skyline, showcasing impressive architecture by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. The hotel itself will offer 182 exquisite guestrooms and suites with stunning views, as well as a range of leisure, dining, wellness and MICE facilities.

Further east on the island of Java, Meliá Adhiwangsa Surabaya is currently in the planning stages. While an opening date has not yet been confirmed, we already know that the 300-key hotel will sit within a major leisure development that incorporates a shopping mall and golf course, both already open to the public. Onsite facilities at the scheme, owned by Bukit Darmo Property Group and operated by Sol Meliá under a management agreement, will include a spa, a swimming pool, a children’s area and two restaurants.
