Tauzia launches seventh Harris hotel
Mimi Hudoyo, Jakarta, June 9, 2011
 

TAUZIA Hotel Management yesterday opened in Jakarta the 88-room Harris Suites fX Sudirman. This is the group’s seventh Harris-branded property and third in the Indonesian capital.

 

Tauzia Hotel Management president director, Marc Steinmeyer, said: "This hotel is important for us, as it marks Tauzia Hotel Management's entry on Jalan Sudirman, the most elite area in Jakarta and even Indonesia."

 

The hotel, located on top of the fX Lifestyle X'nter Mall complex in the heart of the CBD, has also taken over the management of 10 boardrooms in the mall known as fPods, with capacities ranging from six to 16 persons.

 

The entry of the mid-scale Harris is expected to fill the gap of such facilities in the area. With the exception of the mid-scale Hotel Atlet Century Jakarta, there are only five-star hotels in the vicinity.

 

The other Harris properties in the Jakarta are located in Tebet in the south, and Kelapa Gading in the north.

 

Meanwhile, Tauzia is expanding its Indonesian portfolio to reach 49 hotels by 2013.

 

The group currently has 35 hotels under development, the majority of which are in the mid-scale and budget categories. Four Harris-branded properties are scheduled to open this year in Bandung, Batam, Bali and Sentul.

 

When asked whether he thought the market would be able to absorb the openings, especially in view of other hotel chains also keen to get in the act for mid-scale and budget properties, Steinmeyer said: "There is a market, and big, but, yes, there could be an oversupply in the next few years if the development is not controlled."
