Best Western Brings Royal Comforts to Central Jakarta

(Bangkok – January 8, 2014): Best Western International (BWI) has launched a new hotel in Jakarta, designed to make guests feel like royalty!

The new BEST WESTERN Grand Palace Kemayoran is set in an impressive four-story building in the heart of Central Jakarta’s fast-emerging Kelapa Gading area.

From the grand white pillared entrance, topped with soaring arches, this palatial hotel belies its four-star status. And once inside, guests are treated to a range of modern facilities that are fit for a king or queen.
The hotel’s 156 rooms, including 13 suites, all offer private balconies with views across the city, and come equipped with such amenities as large work desks, LED TVs with multiple international channels, minibars and spacious bathrooms with rain showers. And as with all Best Western hotels across the globe, all guests will be offered complimentary internet access.

Guests can also relax in the outdoor lagoon-style swimming pool, enjoy a massage at the spa, or sample excellent local and international cuisine at the Onyx Restaurant. There is also a B’nW Cake Shop for guests with a sweet tooth, and the hotel’s Sky Lounge provides the perfect place for an evening cocktail, overlooking the Jakarta skyline.

Meanwhile for the corporate and events markets, BEST WESTERN Grand Palace Kemayoran offers a ballroom capable of hosting up to 300 delegates, plus five meeting rooms and outdoor function space. The hotel is also located just 1km away from JIExpo - one of Indonesia’s biggest conference and exhibition venues.
“BEST WESTERN Grand Palace Kemayoran marks a real milestone in our rapid recent Indonesian expansion,” said Glenn de Souza, BWI’s Vice President of International Operations - Asia & Middle East.

“With an ideal central location and incredible array of facilities for both business and leisure guests, I am confident this grand hotel will be a fantastic addition to Best Western’s portfolio in Jakarta,” he added.

BEST WESTERN Grand Palace Kemayoran becomes the fourth Best Western hotel in Jakarta, and the third new hotel to have opened in the past six months. And this rapid expansion is set to continue in the coming months and years, with at least three more hotels in Best Western’s Jakarta pipeline.
