Mövenpick to double its presence in Indonesian capital

by | 28 Oct 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Accor is expanding its footprint in Indonesia with the signing of its second Mövenpick property in Jakarta.

Scheduled to open its doors in the third quarter of 2023, Mövenpick Jakarta Pecenongan is located in the centre of the Indonesian capital.

Property transformation

An existing 23-storey hotel is being completely transformed in line with the style and international standards of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. The premium brand from Accor celebrates Swiss hospitality, healthy living and indulgent food and drinks.

Mövenpick Jakarta Pecenongan will feature 253 rooms and suites, all featuring contemporary interiors. A selection of exclusive rooms and suites will offer access to a seventh floor executive lounge, where guests can enjoy private check-in, elevated services and daily refreshments.

Eating and events

A collection of five restaurants and bars will be available, including an all-day dining destination and a specialty restaurant and bar on the ground floor. The pool bar will serve daytime refreshments and the lobby lounge will act as a meeting spot. Other amenities will include an outdoor swimming pool, children’s pool, spa and fully-equipped fitness centre.

Extensive event spaces will comprise two ballrooms, a pre-function area and multiple meeting rooms, all integrated with audio-visual technology. The hotel will therefore be able to host any type of event, including a dedicated wedding chapel on the property’s sixth floor.

Downtown domain

Garth Simmons, CEO, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said: “We are delighted to introduce our world-famous Mövenpick brand to downtown Jakarta. Following the success of our Mövenpick resort in Bali and our recently-signed Mövenpick hotel at Jakarta Airport, we have been seeking the opportunity to introduce this renowned brand to the central district of Indonesia’s capital.

“With its unsurpassed location, world-class facilities and exceptional event space, we expect that Mövenpick Jakarta Pecenongan will become a top choice for business and leisure travellers alike.”

Accor is one of the leading international operators in Indonesia, with 130 hotels and a pipeline of 53 projects across the country. This includes the 413-room Movenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort within the Movenpick brand itself, as well as the five star MGallery Nirup Island, a 137-key beachfront villa resort opening in Q2 2023; and Grand Mercure Maha Cipta Palembang, delivering 220 rooms in 2024.
