IHG signs Bintan, Indonesia's first Holiday Inn Resort and Hotel Indigo

The new-build Holiday Inn Resort Bintan Lagoi Beach and Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach are set to open in 2019.
Opening in 2019, Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach will share a beachfront site with a Holiday Inn Resort.

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a dual-brand management agreement with PT. Graha Agung Indahsentosa to debut two hotels in Bintan, Indonesia. The new-build Holiday Inn Resort Bintan Lagoi Beach and Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach are set to open in 2019 in the Lagoi Bay area.

The 250-room Holiday Inn Resort Bintan Lagoi Beach and Hotel Indigo Bintan Lagoi Beach will both be on a 2.5-acre beachfront site owned by developer PT. Graha Agung Indahsentosa near the Bandar Bentan Telani ferry terminal. Bintan has 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. 

“Indonesia is a key market for IHG; it is a diverse market, with a strong leisure and business pull, and the well-placed for easy travel between Australia, Southeast Asia and Singapore,” Rajit Sukumaran, CDO, IHG Asia Middle East and Africa, said in a statement. “In the past year we have seen a growing demand for the Holiday Inn and Hotel Indigo in Bali, Jakarta and Semarang.”
