The Hotel Nikko Jakarta, located in the city’s bustling Thamrin district opposite the iconic Hotel Indonesia Kempinski, will be become a Pullman hotel from January 19, 2012, onwards.
Pullman will take over management of the 427-room property and, as part of the re-branding scheme, a large-scale upgrading of its facilities will soon take place, including refurbishment of rooms, the lobby, F&B facilities and meeting spaces that will be able to accommodate up to 1000 guests.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of the opening of the first Pullman in the city – the Pullman Jakarta Central Park – in November last year. This hotel, with 317 rooms, is located in Podomoro City Super Block that makes up an arm of the Central Park shopping complex. All rooms are decked out in contemporary stylish decor and equipped with wifi internet access and iPod docking stations. Other facilities at the hotel include two food and beverage outlets, an outdoor swimming pool, gym, spa and a 5,700 sqm ballroom for meetings and events.
The two Pullman properties in Jakarta reflect Accor’s commitment to the Indonesian capital and the country as a whole. Gerard Guillouet, vice president for Accor Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore, said: “The re-branding initiative is an important breakthrough for Accor in Indonesia. It reflects our commitment to develop the upscale Accor brands in the country and to strengthen Accor’s position as the leading international hotel chain covering all segments of the Indonesia market."
