Frasers Hospitality has opened its second property, Fraser Residence Menteng, in Jakarta, adding 128 Gold-standard serviced units to the capital’s business and diplomatic centre.

The hospitality arm of the Frasers Centrepoint Group plans to grow its footprint in Indonesia with the opening of another six properties in the nation’s capital by 2017.Fraser Residence Mendeng

Properties outside Jakarta are also in the pipeline.

In total, Frasers Hospitality will have an inventory of ten properties and over 1,700 serviced units in Indonesia.

With the increased Fraser presence, travellers can look forward to enjoying ten Gold-standard serviced residences in the Indonesian capital within the next three years.

“We are very bullish on Indonesia,” said Frasers Hospitality chief executive Choe Peng Sum.

“The Indonesian government forecasts GDP to grow 5.6 per cent in 2015.

“With its strong growth – GDP is projected to grow annually at 3.07 per cent until 2030 – and arrivals growing at about ten per cent each year, the country offers great potential for our Fraser brands which target professionals, managers and executives travelling on medium-term work projects.”

Indonesia has a masterplan to grow to become one of the ten largest economies by 2030.

“Our first property, Fraser Residence Sudirman Jakarta, opened in 2011 and has enjoyed occupancy exceeding 90 per cent, “continued Choe.

“We believe the Fraser Residence blend of comfort and security makes it ideal for business travellers who want a private sanctuary in the heart of the city.”

As Frasers Hospitality’s footprint expands in Indonesia, the other Fraser brands will also make their mark in the country: Fraser Suites, Fraser Place and Capri by Fraser, a design-led hotel-residence aimed at the millennial business traveller.

Strategically located at Menteng Raya in Central Jakarta, close to Thamrin, the city’s main business district, Fraser Residence Menteng is minutes from offices of multinational corporations, key tourist sites, shopping and dining.

While it is in the heart of the business district, Fraser Residence Menteng is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city for its guests.

It offers round-the-clock security, fitness centre, indoor spa, steam and sauna, lap pool, jet and wading pool.

Ascott has secured a new management contract for its first Citadines Apart’hotel in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The 288-unit Citadines Marvell Surabaya is scheduled to open in 2014 and reinforces Ascott’s position as one of the largest international serviced residence owner-operators in Indonesia, with over 2,100 apartment units across 10 properties.

Mr Alfred Ong, Ascott’s Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Australia, said, “Ascott has built a strong presence in Indonesia since we opened our first property in Jakarta in 1995. With Indonesia’s resilient economy and increasing foreign direct investment into the country, we see tremendous opportunities to expand in Indonesia and introduce our Citadines brand in Surabaya.”

“Surabaya, Indonesia’s second largest city, has a thriving seaport and burgeoning industrial sector. Surabaya is also an up-and-coming city for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions. It is a popular tourist destination with a strong domestic travel market. With Citadines Marvell Surabaya, we will be able to tap on the growing segment of savvy independent travellers who want the flexibility to choose the services they desire to create their unique stay experience. Besides Citadines Marvell Surabaya, Ascott will open four more properties in Indonesia by 2014, including two Citadines, in Bali and Jakarta, in the second half of 2012,” Mr Ong added.

Situated in the business district of Ngagel, Citadines Marvell Surabaya will be close to shopping malls and the Surabaya Industrial Area Rungkut, where many manufacturing factories are located.

Citadines Marvell Surabaya will be part of an integrated development named Marvell City, which offers a multitude of shopping, dining and entertainment options. These include specialty restaurants and bars with alfresco dining, a supermarket, a cinema and other retail outlets. The development will also house commercial towers, educational institutions, as well as ballroom and banquet facilities.

Citadines Marvell Surabaya offers business and leisure travellers a choice of studios, one and two-bedroom apartments. Each furnished apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, ensuite bathroom, separate work and sleeping areas and other modern amenities. Facilities in the 12-storey serviced residence include a swimming pool and residents’ lounge.

Besides Citadines Marvell Surabaya, Ascott will open Citadines Kuta Bali and Citadines Rasuna Jakarta in 2012, Ascott Kuningan Jakarta in 2013 and Somerset Kencana Jakarta in 2014.

Ascott currently manages Ascott Jakarta, Somerset Berlian Jakarta, Somerset Grand Citra Jakarta, Somerset Surabaya Hotel & Serviced Residence and Countrywoods Residences.
