IHG Hotels & Resorts has signed an exclusive partnership with holding entity Agung Sedayu Group to develop the Holiday Inn brand’s first urban beachfront resort in Indonesia.
The agreement expands IHG’s brand portfolio to 36 opened and pipeline hotels in the south east Asian country.
Opening in 2024, the new-build Holiday Inn Resort PIK2 White Sand Beach will be the first white sand beach resort in Greater Jakarta. Offering 180 rooms, suites, and lofts, the resort will showcase Holiday Inn’s new generation of flexible spaces with contemporary design. Guests will experience the brand’s features including its signature KidSuites.
Facilities will include a restaurant, two bars, more than 2,600 sq m of meeting space, a gym and resort centre, indoor and outdoor recreation areas and an outdoor pool.
Holiday Inn Resort PIK2 White Sand Beach will be the anchor hotel at PIK2 North Jakarta, a 2,350ha waterfront satellite city in the Tangerang district. Billed as the ‘New Jakarta City’, it has many substantial projects in development, including the largest mall in Indonesia, a range of F&B establishments, a sports centre and an Islamic financial district. Seamlessly integrated within its natural environment, PIK2 will be a smart city designed with modern technology for work, life and play.
Phase one of PIK2 stretches across 1,000ha, encompassing sustainably led development featuring commercial, residential and lifestyle concepts, with destinations such as a 60ha greenbelt and a mangrove conservatory.
Rajit Sukumaran, MD, South East Asia and Korea, IHG, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Agung Sedayu Group and introduce Holiday Inn Resort PIK2 White Sand Beach in Indonesia. It will be a fantastic anchor hotel for the highly anticipated PIK2 development, located perfectly for families living in, and business travellers visiting, this world-class waterfront city.

We are confident that the brand will continue to thrive and grow in the cities and tertiary markets across the country. IHG has beautiful Holiday Inn resorts across the region, including Indonesia, Maldives, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. Holiday Inn Resort PIK2 White Sand Beach is a wonderful addition joining more than 1,400 existing and pipeline properties across Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts globally.”
