Back then in 1997, foreigners where leaving the county and global hotel chains had their eyes fixed on China not recognizing Indonesia’s potential. We stayed, settled down and made Indonesia our home, learned the language and local ways and were firm believers in Indonesia’s future with a strong desire to be part of it. We now have thanks to our local partners grown to more than 60 operating hotels with a construction pipeline of more than 12.000 rooms and enjoy industry leading occupancy levels and guest loyalty throughout our entire system.“
