A dual-brand management agreement has just been signed by the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®) and PT. Graha Agung Indahsentosa to debut two hotels, Holiday Inn Resort Bintan Lagoi Beach and Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach in Bintan, Indonesia. The newly-built hotels are set to open in 2019 and they will be situated in the prime Lagoi Bay area.
The 250-room Holiday Inn Resort Bintan Lagoi Beach will provide midscale accommodation ideal for family travellers, complete with a large pool as well as accessible food options at the hotel’s all-day dining and specialty restaurants. Families with children will enjoy signature offerings, such as the ‘Kids Eat & Stay Free’ programme, which provides young guests with all-inclusive meals during their stay. The hotel will also offer eight versatile meeting spaces, including a large ballroom with a capacity of 300 people, and function rooms that can hold between 20 to 100 delegates each to cater to business travel needs.
On the other hand, Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach on the other hand will feature a variety of locally inspired dining options at its neighbourhood café and a destination beach restaurant, in addition to thoughtful guest amenities including a gym and infinity swimming pool. It will also be equipped with a board room to cater to VIP meetings.
Both hotels will have access to an award-winning spa for guests to rejuvenate and will be situated on a premium 9.2-hectare beachfront site owned by developer PT. Graha Agung Indahsentosa. Bintan has always been a popular destination for leisure travel, and with the upcoming Bintan International Airport scheduled for completion next year, international tourist arrivals to Lagoi are expected to increase twofold from the current 320,000 visitors annually. Located a short 10-minute drive from the Bandar Bentan Telani ferry terminal, visitors can enjoy a smooth and quick transit to the hotels.
