Accor has unveiled aggressive expansion plans in Indonesia, with 21 new hotels across its brands scheduled to open by 2014 in light of the archipelago's robust economy.
The group will kick-off the string of openings with a 316-room Pullman property in the capital, the Pullman Jakarta Central Park, later this year.
In 2012, Accor will open five properties: the Novotel Jakarta Gajah Mada, an MGallery on Kuta Beach, an ibis in Bandung and two all seasons in Bali. The group will pick up pace in 2013 with 12 new openings across the country, including the budget ibis and Formule 1 brands in Jakarta and another two all seasons in Bali. Finally, three hotels will open in 2014.
These properties, in addition to 13 announced earlier this year and the 40 already operating, will bring the total number of properties in the country to 74.
Michael Issenberg, Accor's Asia-Pacific chairman and chief operating officer, said: "The Indonesian economy continues to grow and benefiting from this growth is increased business travel and tourism volumes."
