Fairmont to enter Indonesia with Jakarta hotel

JAKARTA Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will make its debut in Indonesia with a 488-key luxury hotel in Jakarta, scheduled to open in 2014.

Situated in Senayan Square at the south end of Jakarta’s central business district, the site features the Plaza Senayan shopping center, as well as prime residential and commercial facilities. The developer is Senayan Trikarya Sempana, a subsidiary of Kajima Overseas Asia.

Fairmont Jakarta will feature 380 guestrooms and 108 Fairmont-branded serviced apartments, along with 3,500 sq. m of function space and a 750-sq.-m Willow Stream Spa.

“The addition of Jakarta will further strengthen our growing presence in Asia Pacific,” says Chris Cahill, president of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. “Our developments in China, including the reopening of the landmark Peace Hotel in Shanghai, together with our existing hotels in destinations including Singapore, allow us to extend our luxury brand to both guests and home owners.”

Fairmont Jakarta joins several other recent and ongoing projects in Asia Pacific, including Fairmont Beijing, China; Fairmont Makati, Philippines (2012); Fairmont Nanjing, China (2012); Fairmont Peace Hotel, Shanghai, China; Fairmont Singapore and Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, China.
