Jakarta, November 27th, 2013 – Celebrating the beginning of construction for two future favehotel properties, Archipelago International held two groundbreaking ceremonies to commemorate the start of these exciting new projects.
October 2013 saw the groundbreaking ceremonial event for favehotel Anyer, marking the beginning of this new 101-room, four-story hotel. In attendance were members of the community, along with Chairman of Archipelago International, Charles Brookfield and the President & CEO of Archipelago International, John Flood. The hotel is located in the heart of Anyer on the western tip of Java Island and only 90 minutes drive from Indonesia's capital city, offering the perfect mix of convenience and exotic scenery.
favehotel Rembang is located in the Rembang Regency on the northeastern part of the Central Java Province. Rembang currently attracts only a few tourists to its enchanting land, despite being connected to many popular Indonesian cities such as Solo and Semarang.
Since its inception in 2009, favehotels have been in the forefront of the budget hotel sector, redefining the industry’s standards for select service hotels. Imaginative design and mid-market features such as high quality bedding, complimentary high-speed internet access and LCD televisions have awarded the chain with a number of accolades, namely for their user friendly website that offers instant easy bookings and best rate guarantees for internet savvy customers.
favehotels currently operates 20 hotels throughout Indonesia and Malaysia out of which 8 are in Jakarta and 5 in Bali and has a development pipeline of more than 40 hotels in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
favehotels recently won the “Indonesian Best Budget Hotel Chain Award” and aims to be Indonesia’s best in class as well as the largest and most consistent budget hotel chain promising uncompromising standards for cleanliness and safety, with a network covering the entire archipelago. The group has announced plans to open more than 30 new hotels within the coming 2 years.
