Archipelago International has expanded its portfolio in the Bogor Regency area, West Java, with the opening of The Alana Hotel & Conference Center â€“ Sentul City yesterday.
The 271-room and suite property is located in the Sentul City, a 3,000ha integrated master-planned township situated between South Jakarta and Bogor.
Owned by Sentul City, the developer of the township, the hotel features an all-day dining restaurant with a capacity for up to 350 people, and 15 meeting spaces, including a mini ballroom with a capacity of up to 400 people. It also has an outdoor area which can serve as an open-air pre-function cocktail or coffee break venue.
Facilities like the gym, spa and kids’ club will open by the end of this month, while the Sky Lounge â€“ with a capacity of up to 200 people â€“ will be ready in October.
The hotel is targeting business events, particularly from Jakarta and surrounding area, during weekdays.
Daniel Hutagalung, general manager of the hotel shared: â€œWe have been conducting a trial operation since April and the hotel has been running at an average of 68 per cent occupancy, of which 60 per cent is business events. The majority of bookings come from Jakarta but participants come from different parts of the country.”
He added that Sentul City is a one-stop destination for business events as groups can hold teambuilding and other outdoor activities at Taman Budaya, or a golf tournament at the 18-hole Sentul Highland Golf.
The Alana Hotel & Conference Center is the third property managed by Archipelago International in Sentul City. It also manages Hotel Neo Green Savana Sentul and Aston Sentul & Conference Center.
