Meaning “archipelago” in ancient Javanese, Nusantara is a symbol of national identity and planned as a smart forest city, in line with Indonesia’s commitment to achieve zero carbon emissions and 100per cent new and renewable energy by 2060. With the agreement, Marriott expects to debut three brands – Four Points by Sheraton, Westin Hotels & Resorts and Tribute Portfolio – in the highly anticipated destination, featuring transformational experiences and destination-rooted authenticity.

“We are thrilled to be working with PT. Pakuwon Jati Tbk. on this landmark agreement,” said Ramesh Jackson, Area Vice President, Indonesia and Malaysia, Marriott International. “This milestone signing underscores our commitment to strategically expand our footprint in Indonesia, and we are pleased to also support the local government’s efforts to accelerate the country’s economic transformation especially with the designation of Indonesia’s new capital city in Nusantara.”

Slated to be the first of these three openings, Four Points by Sheraton in Nusantara is expected to boast 300 guestrooms with facilities that range from an outdoor pool, function spaces with natural daylight and a gym with state-of-the-art equipment. Designed for the smart independent traveller, Four Points offers a casual and relaxed ambiance where classic and industrial elements meet modern design, creating spaces that are sophisticated and carefree in character.

The Westin in Nusantara is anticipated to have 200 guestrooms and suites featuring the brand’s iconic Heavenly Bed. Plans also call for three restaurants, three bars & lounges, function spaces, meeting rooms, swimming pool, WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio, Heavenly Spa by Westin, and The Westin Kids Club. Guided by Westin’s six pillars of well-being, the brand continues to evolve and deliver its signature wellness programs to adapt to the needs of the modern traveller and deliver industry-leading experiences designed to empower guests to be the best version of themselves.
