InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur in the capital city of Indonesia's West Java province.
The 278-room hotel, which previously operated as the Aston Primera Pasteur Bandung, joins the IHG family of hotels in Indonesia following the signing of a management agreement with PT Wisma Resortama Propertinda earlier this year.
Situated a short 10-minute drive from Husein Sastranegara International Airport and 15 minutes from the central railway station, Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur is ideal for travellers seeking convenient access to the city. Guests arriving from Jakarta will also appreciate the hotel's close proximity to the Cipularang-Purbaleunyi toll gate on Jalan Pasteur.
Leanne Harwood, Vice President, Operations, IHG, South East Asia and Korea said: "In recent years, Bandung has emerged as one of Indonesia's most popular tourist destinations. With a number of government-led initiatives to boost the city's tourism industry and the recent expansion of its airport, visitor arrival numbers have almost doubled year on year and this is encouraging news for the industry all around. It's a great time to be expanding our footprint in Bandung and we are delighted to be working with PT. Wisma Resortama Propertinda to welcome guests into Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur."
A short distance from renowned shopping malls including Paris van Java and Istana Plaza, the hotel serves as a convenient base for travellers looking to indulge in retail therapy during their holiday. Guests can take a leisurely stroll to the nearby factory outlets to hunt for a good bargain, and sample the variety of local and international cuisines available at restaurants and local eateries in the vibrant Pastuer area as they take a break.
Event planners will appreciate the variety of modern and versatile meeting facilities offered at Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur, including the Modern Grand Ballroom, designed to host up to 1,000 attendees, 12 multipurpose mid-sized meeting rooms which can cater for 100 attendees each, as well as an executive board room for intimate business meetings.
Whether they're visiting on leisure or business, after a fruitful day of sight-seeing or a productive day of business meetings, guests can unwind by taking a dip in the hotel's scenic outdoor pool or modern indoor heated pool, or re-energise with an invigorating workout at the well-equipped fitness centre. Those who prefer a soothing experience can choose from a selection of relaxing spa treatments at the hotel's Orchidea Spa, which comes with private or couple treatment rooms.
The hotel also offers a variety of dining experiences, including the all-day dining Ambassador Coffee Shop that serves delicious cuisine in a contemporary setting. Guests can also sip a refreshing beverage at the Magenta Coffee and Wine lounge, which features live music in a relaxing ambience.
For those travelling with children, the Holiday Inn signature 'Kids Eat & Stay Free' programme provides young travellers with all-inclusive meals during their stay, including dishes from the new and improved nutritious Kids Menu developed in partnership with Nutrition Australia.
Commenting on the opening, Anil Pathak, Regional General Manager, IHG, Indonesia said: "Our guest rooms, suites and facilities are well appointed to ensure our guests enjoy a delightful and comfortable stay whilst visiting Bandung. As one of the largest cities in Indonesia, we're seeing an increase in both domestic and international travellers to Bandung, and we are confident the Holiday Inn brand which is widely recognised and loved by people all around the world will be a draw to them as they visit the city.
