    Meliá Hotels International is continuing with its expansion in Indonesia after announcing the addition of its thirteenth hotel, under the INNSIDE by Meliá brand, in the city of Bandung. The hotel will form part of The MAJ Collections Hotel & Residences developed by The MAJ, a property arm of Ancora Group. Construction is expected to be completed by 2017.INNSIDE Bandung combines leisure and business facilities, and will occupy one of two spectacular twin towers connected by a roof terrace in the thriving area of Dago in the north of Bandung. It will provide 233 guestrooms, children’s play areas, a gym, swimming pool, restaurant and gardens. The second tower will house residential apartments, alongside an annex building with a car park, ballroom, meeting rooms, heliport and a stunning infinity pool on the roof terrace.

    Indonesia is home to the majority of the company’s hotels in the region, with four hotels already open and nine hotels scheduled to open in 2016 and 2017. The company, led by Gabriel Escarrer, started its international expansion in Indonesia with the opening of Meliá Bali in 1986. After 30 years in the region, Meliá is well positioned to help lead the growth of Indonesia as a key player in world tourism.

    The addition of the new INNSIDE Bandung further reinforces the company’s presence and recognition in major cities in Indonesia. Meliá already has properties in cities such as Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Surabaya, in addition to its resort hotel portfolio in Bali and Bintan.

    Asia will continue to be a strategic focus for growth in the coming years. The company now has almost 30 hotels open or scheduled to launch, under management agreements.
