Best Western International (BWI) is continuing its expansion in Indonesia with the signing of a new hotel in the business hub of Tangerang, West Java.

Set to open in the fourth quarter of 2013, the seven-story Best Western Serpong has 196 rooms, including 12 suites. Built in 2012, the contemporary guestrooms will have flat-screen LCD TVs with satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, minibars and private balconies. The hotel will also have a fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and a full service restaurant and lounge.

BWI currently operates one hotel in the Greater Jakarta area, the Best Western Mangga Dua Hotel & Residence, but the company plans to launch at least seven more properties in the area between now and 2015. Overall, BWI's Indonesian portfolio is expected to increase from five to almost 25 hotels in the coming years.
