Hotel amenities include an indoor swimming pool, fitness centre, restaurants, a bakery and lounge, as well as 12 meeting rooms with a capacity of up to 800 people.

Mr. Stephen Burt, Chairman of Travelodge Hotels Asia, said, ďWe are excited to set foot in Indonesia, a leisure destination renowned for its ancient temples, enchanting beaches and breathtaking adventures such as trekking, diving, snorkeling and surfing. With the Indonesian government setting its sights for tourism to be the largest source of foreign exchange earnings, contributing 15% of GDP, and for foreign tourist arrivals to approximately double to 20 million by 2019, we are optimistic on the opportunity for Travelodge to expand further. Our next objective is to open in key gateway cities of Indonesia, such as Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.

Travelodge currently has five hotels in the Asia Pacific region with two in Hong Kong, two in Thailand and now one in Batam, Indonesia.
