The FINANCIAL — InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the doors to Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate in the Indonesian capital. With the addition of this 297-room property, travellers can now choose from two Holiday Inn Express hotels in Jakarta, making a total of five Holiday Inn Express hotels situated in city-centre locations across the country, according to IHG.

“The Holiday Inn Express brand is our growth engine: we’re opening more of these hotels across the world than any of our other brands – on average we open two hotels a week globally.

“Indonesia itself is an important market and is now home to five Holiday Inn Express hotels across Jakarta, Bali and Semarang. We look forward to welcoming 12 more over the next few years, giving more guests the chance to enjoy a refreshing and uncomplicated experience at a no-fuss hotel when travelling in Indonesia for work or play,” said Alan Watts, Chief Operating Officer, Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA), IHG.

With Soekarno-Hatta International Airport just 15 minutes away, Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate is a smart choice for travellers transiting through the city. Savvy travellers wanting to do a spot of shopping will enjoy Jakarta’s famous Emporium Shopping Mall right on their doorstep, while bargain hunters can take a walk to the popular Mangga Dua Shopping Centre just minutes away.

Near the hotel in the Pluit district are also some of Indonesia’s most exciting family adventure destinations. Young travellers can spend an afternoon of fun at Jakarta’s waterpark, Waterbom Jakarta or Ancol Dreamland and Themepark, while parents can relax and hit the greens at Damai Indah Golf and Country Club.

After a day of exploring, guests can take a short drive to the Pantai Indah Kapuk neighbourhood known for its range of restaurants and cafes serving up delicious local and international cuisines, according to IHG.
