IHG Hotels & Resorts and PT Hotel Dago announces Hotel Indigo in Bandung

Situated near the Djuanda Forest Park, Indigo Bandung will offer meeting and event spaces measuring more than 1,800 sqm, a café & bar, a health and fitness club, two swimming pools, and a kids club

IHG Hotels & Resorts and PT Hotel Dago Pakar extend their partnership in Indonesia with a second hotel – Hotel Indigo Bandung Dago Pakar – following the success of InterContinental Bandung Dago Pakar. Scheduled to open in 2024, the 275-room Hotel Indigo Bandung Dago Pakar will be located in the prestigious Dago neighbourhood, in the northern region of Bandung.

As with every Hotel Indigo property, it will draw on the story of its local area to inspire all aspects of its design, décor and service style. Hotel Indigo Bandung Dago Pakar will weave three key themes into every aspect of the guest journey: the healing and restorative power of water, the craftsmanship of local artisans, musicians, puppet masters and dancers that combines modern and traditional art forms, and the folklores and fables that have inspired generations of locals.

“We want to establish Dago Pakar as a must-visit destination, bring out a deeper understanding of our rich culture and heritage that intertwines European influence from its colonial past as well as its young vibrant creative culture, and forge a meaningful connection between our guests, our hotel and the community. The Hotel Indigo design philosophy, which uses storytelling to bring the neighbourhood to life within the hotel while providing a gateway to inspiring and culturally rich locations, aligns with our vision for this property,” said Purnawan Suriadi, Director, PT Hotel Dago Pakar.

“We are very excited to bring boutique brand Hotel Indigo to Bandung and extend our excellent partnership with PT Hotel Dago Pakar. The Hotel Indigo brand is growing in Indonesia with Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach and three more properties in the pipeline in Bintan and Jakarta,” added Serena Lim, Vice President, Development for South East Asia and Korea, IHG.

Facilities at Hotel Indigo Bandung Dago Pakar will include a café & bar, meeting and event spaces measuring more than 1,800 sqm, a health and fitness club, two swimming pools, and a kids club. It will also offer the first rooftop pool and bar in Bandung with 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape and city.

Located on a site previously known as “Love Hill”, 700 metres above sea level, Dago Pakar is a rich botanical sanctuary surrounded by tea plantations, pristine forests and natural waterfalls, and offers scenic city views. A 30-minute drive to Bandung International Airport, the hotel is situated near to the Djuanda Forest Park, a vast conservation area and botanical garden with more than 2,500 types of plants and endangered animals.

Its central location makes it easy for visitors to explore the local community, and offers the chance to sample Indo-Dutch cuisine such as pisang molen (banana wrapped in baked flour), to “ngopi” which is the act of socialising with family and friends over local coffee and teh poci (tea in a pot), and immerse in the thriving folk art scene of creatives, artists, musicians, performers and writers.
