Meliá expands footprint in Indonesia
Meliá Hotels International has announced the signing of Meliá Bintan, its 15th hotel in Indonesia and second on the island of Bintan following the announcement of Gran Meliá Bintan.
Owned by Kurnia Land, the newly-built five-star Meliá Bintan is another milestone in the hotel group’s development and growth strategy in Indonesia and Asia.
Bernardo Cabot, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, Meliá Hotels International, said: “This new project is an exciting addition to our resort portfolio in Indonesia, where we’ve had over 30 years of experience.
“Our momentum continues to be fuelled by strong demand for our exceptional guest accommodations and service. Meliá Bintan will provide discerning travellers a gateway to the one of the world’s newest meccas for luxury travel.”
Bintan, the largest island in the Riau archipelago, is blessed with pristine beaches and 23,000 hectares of white sandy coast facing the South China Sea. The island is a short ferry ride away from Singapore and Malaysia, and the addition of a new international airport will give travellers around the world greater access to this tropical paradise.
Meliá Bintan is located in a privileged coastal enclave, with 280 rooms and villas covering and area of eight hectares. Managed under the Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand, the hotel will have numerous amenities including the renowned Yhi Spa; the Level lounge and suites; two beachfront restaurants; a swimming pool with water attractions; and a fitness and large-scale convention centre.
