50 Fully-serviced Conrad Residences
|BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. & JAKARTA, Indonesia - Aug. 8, 2005 -- Conrad(R)
Hotels, the luxury brand of the Hilton Family of Hotels, reached an agreement
on July 22nd with Indonesian company PT. Majumakmur Arthasentosa to manage
the new Conrad Jakarta. This purpose-built, luxurious 320-room and suite
hotel, including 50 fully-serviced Conrad Residences, will be built as
part of the city's Sudirman Plaza, a multi-use complex located in the heart
of Jakarta's commercial and business district on Jalan Jenderal Sudirman
in Jakarta's Golden Triangle.
"We are excited to work with PT. Majumakmur Arthasentosa to operate and manage a Conrad hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia's dynamic capital," said Dieter Huckestein, chairman & CEO for Conrad Hotels, and president of the Hilton Global Alliance. "An outstanding location -- in the heart of Jakarta's business and financial district -- combined with Conrad's ability to cater to the discerning business and leisure traveller proves a powerful combination that will contribute to the success of the hotel, its residences and the overall multi-use development."
Scheduled to open in 2008, the Conrad Jakarta will feature luxuriously appointed guest rooms, deluxe suites and presidential suites in addition to six restaurants, a fully-equipped health club, two tennis and squash courts, a beautifully-landscaped roof garden with a swimming pool and pool-side al fresco dining. An Asian-themed spa offering a full range of therapeutic treatments incorporating age-old recipes and formulas handed down by generations of Asian women will be available. The spa's menu of treatments will emphasize spiritual well-being and natural curatives designed to soothe and nurture the mind, body and spirit. The hotel's extensive banquet and meeting facilities will feature 20 flexible meeting rooms totalling more than 2,000 square meters of ballroom and meeting space. A number of these meeting facilities will feature direct access to a private executive lounge, offering guests a seamless meeting experience. Other proposed features of Conrad Jakarta's banquet and meetings rooms include cutting-edge audio-visual and telecommunications facilities along with comprehensive multi-media applications and a fully-staffed and technologically equipped business center. The hotel's guest rooms will feature high-speed internet access and wireless connectivity to the internet (Wi Fi) will also be available throughout the hotel's lobby and public areas.
The opening of a second Conrad hotel in Indonesia, after the successful
opening of the Conrad Bali Beach Resort & Spa in March 2004 creates
an ideal opportunity of a dual-destination on Indonesia's archipelago of
islands, offering guests a luxury option in Indonesia's bustling capital
city of Jakarta, located on the island of Java and a beachside resort and
spa destination on the renowned island of Bali.
