Best Western International Reaches New Heights In Solo

Bangkok – July 22, 2015): Best Western International has unveiled a new hotel in Solo, Central Java, which is literally taking accommodations in the city to new heights. 

Rising 82 meters from the streets of this emerging Indonesian destination, the new BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is Solo’s tallest hotel. And its array of upscale amenities, including conference and banquet space, is also elevating the guest experience. 

“Our upscale BEST WESTERN PREMIER brand is becoming famous around the world for providing exceptional hotels with world-class facilities, and BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is another outstanding addition to this collection,” said Best Western International’s Senior Vice President of Brand Management Ron Pohl. 

Guests can indulge in a soothing treatment at the hotel’s spa, soak up the tropical sun in the outdoor infinity-edged swimming pool, or work out in the Sky Fitness Center, which is located on the 22nd floor and overlooks the city. 

For diners, the Chrystal Sapphire Coffee serves up both Indonesian and international dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the Pool Cafe is the ideal place to relax with a cooling cocktail. And after dark, the top floor Sky Lounge provides a stylish and sophisticated venue for evening drinks. 

BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is also set to become one of the city’s main meetings and events hubs. The hotel’s Ruby Convention Hall can accommodate up to 2500 people and is complemented by eight other function rooms, each of which can accommodate up to 200-300 people. This makes BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru the ideal venue for any conference, business meeting, social event, wedding or product launch. 

“As Best Western International continues to expand its footprint across Asia, we are now seeking iconic hotels that will elevate the guest experience to new levels. BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is an excellent example of this new brand vision,” said Best Western International’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia Olivier Berrivin. 

“I am confident that the hotel will thrill guests with its outstanding array of facilities, and will help to re-shape how people think about Best Western hotels,” added Mr. Berrivin. 

BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru becomes Best Western International’s 14th hotel in Indonesia and its first in Solo. It is also only the fourth upscale BEST WESTERN PREMIER hotel in the country, following existing properties in Jakarta and Bali.
