Jakarta Hotel Market Review June 2019 86% of guests are domestic market

As new luxury hotels gather on Jakarta’s horizon, will international travelers follow?

Newly released report reveals 86% of city’s hotel guests are domestic market. While Jakarta Indonesia is transforming into an Asian megacity, it has yet to capture a wider international audience of visitors. In 2018, the city’s hotels hosted over 13 million guests, yet 86% were from the domestic segment.

In a newly released report, the Jakarta Hotel Market Review from hospitality consulting group C9
Hotelworks over 2.7 million overseas passengers arrived at the gateway Soekarno-Hatta International
Airport last year. Over a 10-year period the compound annual growth rate hit an impressive 7.4 percent. Yet, the reality, is that Indonesia’s largely domestic economic marketplace remains the key spotlight as public sector infrastructure is playing catch up with ongoing mass transportation developments trying to link the city’s spread of mini-metros.



A key outcome of the domestic feeding frenzy is that Indonesian conglomerates and real estate groups are developing massive integrated mixed-use properties with global luxury operators. A quick name check of the accommodation pipeline features well-known names such as Park Hyatt. Waldorf Astoria, St.Regis, W, Regent and Langham.



While historically the influx of overseas guests are business travelers during peak mid-week periods who leave the city in advance of the weekend. This leaves hotels with the choice of either lower room rates for the domestic market or else empty beds.



Jakarta’s international geographic source of business profile has seen Mainland China in the top position since 2015, with a 5-year CAGR of 9%. Rounding out the top 5 are Malaysia, Japan, Singapore and Saudi Arabia. There have been few surprises during the past few years yet two international sporting events, the 2018 Asia and Para Asian games pushed market-wide demand higher.



Looking forward, C9 Hotelworks Managing Director Bill Barnett said “it’s unclear if the new luxury pipeline will dramatically induce the overseas market. Until there are broader economic reforms that will positively impact FDI (foreign direct investment) and improvements in commuting to CBD areas, the domestic segment is likely to remain firmly entrenched in the driver’s seat of Jakarta hotel performance.”

KARMA GROUP RETURNS TO THAILAND’S KOH SAMUI

WITH KARMA APSARA


Karma Group has announced a return to Thailand’s Koh Samui with the opening of Karma Apsara, a tranquil oasis located on the pristine coconut grove slopes of the fabled holiday island. Located on an elevated slope in Mae Nam along Koh Samui’s breathtaking north coast, Karma Apsara brings together 32 spacious one and two-bedroom residences offering both garden and ocean views.

Karma Apsara is located just five minutes from Mae Nam Beach with its sugary white sand and swaying palm trees, while Koh Samui airport is just 15 minutes away. Besides its stunning natural attributes, Mae Nam features an excellent golf course, eateries and boutiques, while the town of Chaweng is just a short drive away. Featuring a pretty horizon pool with panoramic views, an on-site restaurant and bar and private beach access, Karma Apsara is the ideal gateway to discover one of southeast Asia’s most fabled islands.

“Koh Samui is one of my favourite islands in south east Asia and as Karma previously developed a highly successful resort on the island, I am delighted we are returning,” said John Spence, Founder and Chairman of Karma Group. “Karma Apsara, named after the mythical water nymphs, is located in the north of the island close to pristine white beaches and the Santiburi golf course, making it a perfect base to explore the spectacular local surroundings or just kick back and relax by the pool. We are currently undertaking a rolling renovation program to make the resort even better, according to Karma’s high standards.”

Karma Apsara’s 32 spacious rooms are perfect for everyone. Guests can choose from a range of one-bedroom studios and one or two-bedroom residences, ranged around a pool overlooking Mae Nam bay. All feature comfortable king or queen-sized beds and en suites.

Guests can relax poolside with a signature Karma Apsara cocktail, iron out the kinks from that long-haul flight with a relaxing Thai massage with one of Karma Spa’s bodyworkers or take a stroll through the perfectly tended tropical gardens. If feeling like a longer walk, guests can head to Mae Nam beach or opt for a round at the Santiburi golf course, just 3km from the resort.

Karma Apsara’s semi al fresco restaurant features floor to ceiling glass that open to create a seamless transition between interior and exterior spaces. Guests can enjoy a selection of exquisitely prepared local dishes inspired by Thai street food traditions, as well as international favourites. There is a great selection of fine wines from the resort’s well stocked cellar as well as cold, refreshing local and international beers and a wide range of cocktails.
