Marriott International, INC (NASDAQ: MAR) announces the opening of the first Marriott branded hotel in Indonesia that is also the latest internationally branded hotel in Yogyakarta, the Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel.
“We are extremely excited to introduce the Marriott Hotels’ ‘Travel Brilliantly’ ethos to a new destination. Indonesia is one of our fastest-growing source markets for both domestic and international travel and it is only fitting that the Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel is in such a historic and culturally significant destination,” said Mike Fulkerson, Brand & Marketing, Vice President Asia-Pacific, Marriott International.
Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel is nestled in a strategic location where guests can easily immerse in local culture and explore the city’s tourist destinations. The 18th-century historical Keraton Royal Palace and The Borobudur Temple, one of the world’s largest Buddhist temples and a UNESCO World Heritage site, are only an hour away by car.
All 347 guestrooms and suites are designed in the Marriott Modern style, balancing utility with refinement, with the latest technology and fast Wi-Fi connection for those who would like to stay connected while on the road. This is no different at Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel, which houses a boardroom, seven meeting rooms and several pre-function areas to host various business meetings and intimate events. The 1,870-square-meter pillar-less ballroom is the largest in Yogyakarta, making it the grandest venue in town for special celebrations.
“Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel is not only the newest hotel in the historic city, but is also leading the pack in terms of innovative meeting facilities for business travelers as well as easy access to all of the city’s tourist attractions,” said Alain Rigodin, General Manager, Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel.
Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel offers a dynamic selection of delicious local and international food and drinks at three creative dining venues, complemented by Marriott’s thoughtful service. The all-day dining Yogyakarta Kitchen boasts a modern design with an interactive open-kitchen buffet concept, while the Taman Sari Bar & Grill specialty restaurant is a fine choice to unwind with a view of the swimming pool. The Lounge in the lobby provides a convenient atmosphere for casual meetings and an inviting ambience to unwind with a cocktail in the evenings.
Facilities are thoughtfully designed to create an excellent stay experience. Being the largest club lounge in town, the exclusive M-Club is the perfect place to enjoy small talk with some drinks. The holistic sanctuary Quan Spa will pamper guests with a selection of beauty rituals to align the body and mind and restore clarity, while the Exercise Room will keep everyone fit with cutting-edge workout machines. Guests can also simply plunge into the outdoor swimming pool to refresh and relax. Direct access to the largest shopping and entertainment precinct in Central Java gives guests a fantastic opportunity to sample the modern vibe of Yogyakarta city.
