Ascott has expanded its international network of Citadines-branded serviced residences with the opening of the first Citadines properties in Indonesia and Malaysia.

With the 153-unit Citadines Rasuna in Jakarta, and 215-unit Citadines Uplands in Kuching, Ascott now has a total of 59 Citadines properties in operation across 31 cities in Asia Pacific and Europe.

Mr Chong Kee Hiong, Ascotts Chief Executive Officer, said, Ascott acquired the Citadines chain of aparthotels in Europe in 2002 and brought the brand to Asia Pacific in 2006. We have increasingly been getting requests from property owners for the brand, due to its popularity amongst savvy independent travellers. These travellers value urban living in prime locations and the flexibility to choose the services they require to personalise their stay experience. To cater to the demand, we will be opening 13 more Citadines in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Germany by 2015.
