Best Western Continues Expansion in Indonesia
“West Java is booming. Jakarta and its fast-emerging satellite cities, such as Tangerang and Bogor, are becoming key business hubs in Southeast Asia. Best Western is delighted to be able to serve this fast-growing market with a range of modern, quality business and leisure hotels,” said Glenn de Souza, BWI’s Vice President International Operations, Asia & the Middle East.
“We are currently undertaking an unprecedented period of expansion in Indonesia, which will see us more than quadruple our collection of hotels in the country over the next few years. Included in this will be at least seven properties in the Greater Jakarta region. As this area expands further in the years ahead, Best Western will be there, growing along with it,” added Mr. de Souza.
BWI currently operates one hotel in the Greater Jakarta area, the BEST WESTERN Mangga Dua Hotel & Residence, but the company plans to launch at least seven more properties in the area between now and 2015. Overall, BWI’s Indonesian portfolio is expected to increase from five to almost 25 hotels in the coming years.
