Hilton expands in Indonesia with four new signings

Hilton International has signed four new hotels in Indonesia as part of its South-east Asia’s expansion plan.

Speaking at a recent media round-table in Jakarta, Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton said there was an opportunity to “expand our collection of luxury brands and properties in Indonesia”.

The four Indonesia projects are targeted to open between 2026 and 2029. They are the 200-room Hilton Bandung Padalarang, the 250-room Hilton Garden Inn Manado, the 150-room Hilton Manado, and the 280-room Conrad Jakarta.

These join the Waldorf Astoria Jakarta project, which was announced earlier and is scheduled to open in 2027, marking the entry of the brand into Indonesia.

Commenting on the company’s signing in Manado, in the North Sulawesi Province, Alexandra Murray, vice president and regional head of South-east Asia, said the property would attract both business events and leisure guests, and noted that demand for North Sulawesi was high among international travellers particularly due to its coral triangle status.

Hilton currently operates nine hotels across five brands in Indonesia, including recent openings like the Umana Bali, its first LXR-branded luxury resort in South-east Asia last year, the DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta Kemayoran on March 1, and DoubleTree by Hilton Bintaro Jaya on June 15.
