Westin expands Indonesian presence with Surabaya launch
Marriott International’s Westin Hotels & Resorts brand has celebrated the opening of a 204-key property in Indonesia’s second largest city.
The capital of the East Java province is now home to the 204-key The Westin Surabaya. It represents the fourth Westin Hotels & Resorts property in Indonesia, as well as the 54th across Marriott International’s extensive portfolio of brands.
Marriott makes its mark in Indonesia
The location, Surabaya, is known for both its fine colonial architecture and its collection of historic monuments and sites.
Alamsyah Jo, complex general manager of The Westin Surabaya & Four Points by Sheraton Surabaya Pakuwon Indah, said: “Serving as a gateway between nature, continents, and cultures, Surabaya is fast becoming an increasingly popular destination in the region.
“The Westin Surabaya will set a new standard of hospitality in the city by transforming the way travellers experience wellbeing in the capital of East Java. We look forward to welcoming guests to discover the charm of the Surabaya while at the same time empowering their wellbeing during their stay.”
Golf, views and city sights
The Westin Surabaya is the ideal base for those visiting the city, and is conveniently located close to many major attractions, including the Heroes Monument, Surabaya Submarine Monument and Tunjungan Plaza, while also benefiting from direct access to The Pakuwon Mall. Moreover, golf aficionados will delight in the fact that the hotel, which boasts 204 rooms and suites, is situated near Pakuwon Golf & Family Club and Bukit Darmo Golf.
The hotel’s curving design means that many rooms offer expansive vistas across the city, and 270-degree views are on offer to guests of the club lounge and restaurant. Its culinary offerings include two signature all-day dining options – Magnolia, a ‘culinary theatre’ boasting international and local fare, and the Sky Lounge, located on the 28th floor, where guests can sip cocktails and listen to live music. There’s also a 24-hour gym and fitness centre onsite, as well as over 9,000 sq m of flexible event space.
Rajeev Menon, president of Asia Pacific (excluding China) for Marriott International, concluded: “We are excited to open the fourth Westin hotel in Indonesia, expanding the brand’s signature wellbeing offering to more locals and travellers. This opening also marks the 57th Marriott International hotel in Indonesia, indicative of our commitment to expanding our footprint in the region.”
