Luxury hospitality group Banyan Tree is plotting a multi-brand expansion across Indonesia.
It unveiled plans for up to five new resorts in Bali, neighbouring Lombok and Sumatra.
It confirmed plans for the 72-key Banyan Tree Nipah, a luxury beach resort in Lombok, which will feature suites and villas with infinity pools.
Amenities include an all-day restaurant and Banyan Tree Spa.
It is slated to open in 2022.
Wellness resort Angsana Saranam, Bali is expected to open first in 2021, with 82 units, comprising an Angsana Spa, Activity Centre, and Vitality Pool.
Also expected next year is the first Banyan Tree Escape in Ubud, Bali, and two further locations are planned for Lombok and Sumatra.
Banyan Tree Escape is the group’s new brand extension, which has a ‘no walls, no doors’ concept, embracing nature.
“We are more than confident in the enormous potential of the Indonesian market and are directing our business development plans accordingly,” said Ho Kwon Ping, executive chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings.
The group is bullish on the resilience of the Indonesian market and is in discussions to open more hotels in the country.
Banyan Tree’s Cassia brand recently made its debut in Bintan and hopes to introduce it and sister brand Dhawa Hotels to Indonesia’s super priority destinations being developed across the country.
These include Labuan Bajo, the gateway to the Komodo National Park, Mandalika in Lombok, Lake Toba in North Sumatra, and Likupang in Sulawesi.
