Accor has announced plans for a new-build hotel under its Movenpick brand close to Jakarta International airport.

Scheduled to open in 2026, the 12-storey property will be situated within Tangerang City, which is also home to Indonesia Convention Exhibition, the country’s largest convention centre.

Facilities will include 310 rooms and suites, and all day dining restaurant, lobby bar, fitness centre, spa, swimming pool, business centre and ten meeting rooms.

Movenpick Hotels and Resorts was acquired by Accor in 2018, and recently opened properties in Ras Al Khaimah and Zagreb.

There are currently 128 Accor hotels operating in Indonesia across 15 of the group’s brands, with a further 52 properties in the pipeline for the next five years.

Commenting on the news Garth Simmons, chief executive officer, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said:

“Accor expects to open a further 38 hotels in the Southeast Asia region this year, 11 of which will be in Indonesia. As a rapidly booming destination, the country continues to be a robust growth market for us, where we actively explore opportunities to expand our network to provide travellers and locals with wider and more attractive options.

“The signing of Movenpick Jakarta International Airport reflects our confidence in the future of Indonesia’s tourism industry. When the hotel opens, we believe that it will be a convenient base for those visiting the country.”
