Hyatt Place Makassar, the first Hyatt Place hotel in Indonesia, has opened.

Located on Sudirman street, the 145-room property, including suites, hopes to attract leisure and business travellers visiting Makassar in Sulawesi, a city also known as Ujung Padang.

“As Makassar continues to grow and thrive economically, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to Makassar,” said general manager, Yanita Supardjan. “With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking guests can easily accomplish what they need to do whether it’s for business or leisure.”

Hyatt Place Makassar is owned by PT Indonesia Paradise Property along with PT Rifai Maju Properti, which also owns several well-known hotels, apartments and luxury malls in Indonesia including Grand Hyatt Jakarta.

“Makassar is a vibrant city, filled with friendly people, great neighborhoods, and an ever-expanding list of great places to visit and things to do or see, and Hyatt Place Makassar is central to all of them. We are confident that the Hyatt Place Makassar will exceed guest expectations and provide them with everything they need while visiting Makassar city,” said Supardjan.
