The new 270-room Crowne Plaza Semarang will open its doors on 22 January 2012. Owned by the Golden Flower Group, the hotel will be managed by InterContinental Hotels Group.

The first Crowne Plaza hotel in Central Java is located at Semarang’s central business district, near government and regional corporate offices, major banks and popular shopping malls. The hotel is also just a 15-minute drive from Ahmad Yani Airport.

“Being the first Crowne Plaza-branded hotel in Central Java – and the second in Indonesia following Jakarta – Crowne Plaza Semarang will add to the thriving tourism and economic activities in this part of the region,” said Ian Reid, General Manager of Crowne Plaza Semarang. “As one of the country’s busiest hubs, Semarang is an ideal gateway connecting both business and leisure guests who travel domestically and internationally.”

All of its 270 rooms and suites – including four Junior, 20 Executive, and one Presidential suites – are well-equipped with state-of-the- rt amenities for guests to stay connected, such as docking stations, wired and wireless internet access.

Guests of the Club rooms and suites have access to the Club Lounge and a personalised check-in /check-out area.

For extended-stay travellers, the hotel has four suite units that each comes with 2-3 bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a dining room, laundry facilities and entertainment systems.

Designed with optimal guest satisfaction and convenience in mind, Crowne Plaza Semarang includes restaurants offering popular local and international cuisines, a business centre, a fully-facilitated health club, an outdoor pool, and a sauna. It also features a pillar-less ballroom that can accommodate more than 2,000 people, complete with a wedding chapel and gallery.

“The opening of Crowne Plaza Semarang underscores IHG’s strong expansion in Southeast Asia,” said Alan Watts, Vice President of Operations, Southeast Asia at IHG. “Indonesia has reflected strong GDP growth in the past few years. This encourages long term economic and tourism growth in terms of investments, infrastructural developments and employment opportunities, while continuing to be a favourite travel destination for both business and leisure travellers.”

In 2011 alone, Indonesia recorded 7.63 million tourist arrivals, representing a 9% growth from the previous year. The country is targetting 8.72 million tourist arrivals by end-2015.
