Meliá Hotels International enters to the Indonesian island of Sumatra by signing a new hotel agreement to open yet another property in Indonesia, where the group now has 16 hotels in operation and in the pipeline.
Construction for the new Meliá Pekanbaru is expected to be completed by March 2017. The hotel will form part of The Peak Pekanbaru Hotel & Apartment developed by PT. Asialand.
The new 160-room hotel will count with 5* facilities including a fitness centre & spa, swimming pool, several F&B outlets, sky garden, rooftop wedding chapel, extensive meeting rooms and a 700 m2 ballroom.
Bernardo Cabot, Regional Vice President Asia Pacific, Meliá Hotels International, has emphasised the company’s commitment to the market: “The opening of Meliá Pekanbaru adds vibrant appeal to the Riau capital with the familiar Meliá warmth of world-class hospitality. This newest partnership is further testament to our commitment to Indonesia, where, together with our hotel owners, we will ensure sustained growth and long-term profitability.”
Meliá Pekanbaru will rise 29 storeys above the city of Pekanbaru and is housed in the tallest tower in Sumatra Island overlooking the Siak River. Strategically located in the city connected to several international oil companies, the city is a major gateway and stopover for travellers going farther inland to other regions, such as Padang and Jambi.
