The 169-room hotel is surrounded by more than 100 small islands on the eastern coast of Sumatra. Although it is located very close to wildlife, it is also 45 minutes away from Hanandjoeddin International Airport in Tanjung Pandan.
The hotel, which is the eighth Sheraton-brand hotel to be opened in Indonesia, features Lenggadai wood on the ceiling of its lobby. Lenggadai is a tree from the Rhizophoraceae family that grows locally. Belitung granite, cut and burnt on site, is showcased in the lobby’s flooring.
Three restaurants and lounges, offering views of the ocean, have local and international delicacies.
The surrounding wildlife reserve has more than 1,000 types of flora and fauna in a lush 200 hectares. Lucky guests may spot the karamunting flower, which only grows in Belitung, or the tarsius, one of the smallest primates in the world, which can be found only on certain Southeast Asian islands.
Reservations can be made on the hotel’s website. (JakartaPost)
