Travelodge Takes Over Hotel in Batam, Indonesia

Travelodge has expanded its rapidly growing portfolio of hotels in Asia by opening its first hotel in Indonesia.

Located in the centre of Batam’s commercial area, the 249-room Travelodge Batam operated as the Novotel Batam until 1 January 2018.

Travelodge Batam is within walking distance or a five minutes’ drive to key attractions, including shopping malls such as Nagoya Hills Mall and Harbour Bay Mall, and the Harbour Bay International Ferry Terminal. The hotel is also 45 minutes from Singapore by ferry and 30 minutes’ drive from the Hang Nadim International Airport.

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, “We 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.
