Swiss-Belhotel International collaborates with PT Puri Sentul Permai Tbk to open Swiss-Belexpress Rest Area KM 166, Cipali, marking a strategic extension into West Java’s rest areas.
JAKARTA – Swiss-Belhotel International, in collaboration with PT Puri Sentul Permai Tbk (KDTN), announced the opening of its latest establishment of Swiss-Belexpress Rest Area KM 166, Cipali (Cikopo – Palimanan toll road). This occasion marks the extension of Swiss-Belhotel International’s portfolio into rest areas in West Java. Following the success of its first hotel at Rest Area KM 19, Cikampek, this new addition will accommodate solo travellers or families driving across Banten, West Java, and beyond Central and East Java.
The hotel boasts three distinct room types tailored to meet various preferences with facilities, including electronic door locks, individually controlled air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms with showers, and the added convenience of complimentary high-speed internet access. The Express rooms offer guests the option of choosing between one or two beds, encompassing ample space spanning 23 square metres. The Express suite is ideal for families seeking a comfortable stay featuring expansive rooms spanning 27 square meters.
“Swiss-Belhotel International is excited to expand our network within rest areas in collaboration with PT Puri Sentul Permai Tbk (KDTN), and we welcome Swiss-Belexpress Rest Area KM 166, Cipali to our portfolio. This venture comes on the heels of our successful rebranding of the Swiss-Belexpress Rest Area KM 19, Cikampek, last June 2023. We aim to facilitate the growth of terrestrial connections linking Java and Sumatra in the foreseeable future. Moreover, we are optimistic that our hotel operations within these rest areas will help drivers mitigate fatigue during their road travel.“, said Emmanuel Guillard, Senior Vice President of Operations and Development at Swiss-Belhotel International Indonesia, shared his insights on this significant undertaking.
“We proudly launched our second hotel at the Rest Area in Indonesia. As we know, Rest Area KM. 166 Cipali Toll Road is a tired point for drivers from Jakarta who want to travel to Java island, so the presence of Swiss-Belexpress at this location is very appropriate. On the other hand, the existence of a rest area adjacent to Kertajati International Airport means that vehicle traffic on the Cipali toll road will increase, especially with the opening of the Cisumdawu Toll Road, which will increase vehicle traffic entering the KM 166 Rest Area, so that this can bring positive attention to the Swiss-Belexpress Rest Area KM 166, Cipali. We are also preparing the third hotel in the Rest Area KM 164 Cipali toll road with an operational target in the 4th quarter of 2023. We hope that the presence of Swiss-Belexpress in the Rest Area will show a new ambiance to the business development in the rest area and will educate the drivers on toll road users about the importance of resting when they are tired of driving. “, said Aan Rohanah as Director & Corporate Secretary of PT Puri Sentul Permai Tbk.
