seen extraordinary economic growth over the past four to five
years, and the hotel industry has predominantly been driven by the
local market. The high demand for accommodation facilities is
bolstered primarily by Indonesia’s position as one of Asia’s most
popular tourist destinations, receiving 9.44 million foreign
visitors in 2014, resulting from growth of 7.19% compared to the
previous year. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, much
of this growth has arisen from catering to the middle-segment of
the market, namely the 2, 3 and 4 star hotels. Nowadays in our
increasingly anxious world, people want comfort and functionality,
and it's no secret today's guests want to be reminded of home.
That's why Harper's modern-rustic design concept uses warm, rich
colors to offer comfort in each room. Harper Hotels convey a
residential feel and a balanced functionality, offering
unobtrusive service and never ending innovation - hotels for the
astute traveler who values individualism and character. Our
expansion in Indonesia is certainly one of our strategies, but we
have always focused on quality rather than quantity,” said John
Flood, President & CEO – Archipelago International.
