Mövenpick set to expand in Asia

Continuing its expansion in Asia, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts plans to open its first property in Indonesia over the next three years as one of eight new hotels the group plans to launch in the region.

The Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran will have 295 rooms, a ballroom, business centre and meeting rooms all in the scenic island of Bali, which the company sees as an ideal place to launch its first Asian property.

The company is also looking at building hotels in Jakarta, Surabaya and Bandung, all in Indonesia. The fast-growing Southeast Asia country is a key market for expansion, said CEO Andreas Mattmüller, speaking during a recent event.
