Accor has signed a management agreement with PT Bintan Lagoon Resort, a subsidiary of PT Edika Agung Mandiri, to open Mövenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort in Indonesia.

The resort, which is slated to open next year, will become the first Mövenpick property in Bintan.

It will feature 413 rooms and a private white sandy beach overlooking the South China Sea in the northern part of the island.

Amenities to be provided at the resort will include three lagoon swimming pools, new restaurant concepts, a two-storey beach club, event spaces, and a ferry terminal.

The resort is expected to offer Swiss-inspired hospitality to Bintan.

Wellness will form an integral part of the resort experience, with a wellness and recreation centre featuring a gym, a spa, and Kids Club.

The resort can be reached by a ferry ride from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal Singapore. It is also an hour’s drive from Bintan’s Raja Haji Fisabilillah International Airport.

Accor Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea chief executive officer Garth Simmons said: “We are proud to continue our growth momentum in Indonesia with the signing of Mövenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort. With golden beaches, idyllic nature, and exciting recreational activities, Bintan Island has long been a convenient heavenly retreat from the bustling cities.

“It is a perfect location for our Mövenpick brand, whose heartfelt service, attention to detail and indulgent gastronomy will resonate well within this leisure hotspot. Mövenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort will become a destination within a destination and will elevate the holiday experience with its extensive facilities.”

Accor presently operates 128 hotels under 15 brands.

It has a development pipeline of 51 projects in Indonesia.

Mövenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort will join a bunch of more than 100 Mövenpick hotels and resorts across the world.

Earlier this month, Accor, in collaboration with PT Mega Hotel Lestari, opened its first ibis Styles property in Semarang, Indonesia.
