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.
