  • 5. Recently we have had more than a dozen hotel and resort enquiries in our office, to design small 3 star hotels all over the Indonesian archipelago. Not only is there an obvious lack of supply of good, clean and affordable accommodation in the provinces, but also there are many new developers in this industry that made their money in other booming businesses in Indonesia. The onslaught of hotel development in Indonesia is not an isolated event but part of a chain reaction that started with the burgeoning budget airlines in Asia. The Jakarta Post recently reported that an additional 50.000 rooms, shall come into the market in the next year. I have travelled to remote places for many years since the late 80’s and I have observed that today, aided by the online reservation, e-tickets, credit card payment and so on, flying and travelling in general, has never been easier, cheaper and faster. Privatisation of the once government dominated airline industry, has spurred new airport construction, as well as hotels and resorts. Coincidently it is during this time also that the world population has reached 7 billion and growing! The competition among hotels is fierce especially when most of the avid international travellers are going through an economic recession. One only has to look up Agoda, Trip Advisor or Hotel.com and can virtually see the choice of hotels available anywhere in the world. For new hotel developers, it is important to create a strong sense of a potentially unique experience, when staying in their hotel. Branding, location, reputation, pricing, in that order, are all important, since most hotels are promising to offer great rooms, spas, modern or unique designs and locations. At the other end of the scale, the hotel and resorts that can only be described with superlatives, are not affected by the recession, as the rich will stay rich. In this edition of AQ, we have displayed an array of available hotels and resorts when money is no object. We have also shown hotels with unique locations or architecture that may be the key to stay ahead of the competition. In the Indonesian Property Exposition early September in Jakarta, “condotels” for small investors, were offered in almost every stand. I guess this is the 21st century version of “time-share”. One basically can own a hotel room or more and release it back to the operating management to sell it with a minimum guaranteed annual income. Plus of course the prestige of having a hotel room on stand-by at all times, at least at short notice. This has drastically changed the traditional 7-10 years return on investment model, investors used to struggle with, in the past. So be prepared for a large number of new and exciting hotels in all categories all over the world and Indonesia in the next year or so. All hotels are out doing each other in the superlatives, being the most luxurious, the tallest, the most unique, the best location and the list goes on. This is good news for the consumer as even in the budget hotel category, creative ideas and good design is now, a must. Photo Source: http://www.loewshotels.com/ PrincipalPoint04

  • 14. Hotels turn to artists’touch to lure guests DesignNews13 With escalating competition in the hospitality industry, hotel chains are going the extra mile to stand out among their rivals. Artotel Indonesia, for example, has added unique and colorful decorations to every hotel it operates, and claims to be the one player in Indonesia that makes the best use of art in its hotels. “We fully integrate art in our hotels since art can create an value added experience for our customers. By using art, we can create a new and different atmosphere that adds comfort and convenience,” Artotel Indonesia corporate general manager Eduard R. Pangkerego told The Jakarta Post. Hotel numbers have continued to increase in the country’s major cities. It is estimated that an additional 50,000 new rooms will is ArtotelSurabayainEastJava,a106-roomurbanstreet-styleaccommodation that opened in July 2012. “Response from the market has been good as we have maintained on average a 84 percent occupancy rate till today,” Eduard said. “Since art can create an value added experience for our customers. By using art, we can create a new and different atmosphere that adds comfort and convenience.” During the Post’s site visit to Artotel Thamrin, the firm’s second accommodation currently under construction, contemporary art could be seen in the building’s rooms and lobby. The hotel’s exterior stood out along Jl. Sunda in Central Jakarta as it had the image of huge squid painted on it . Six local artists including Zaki Arifin, Oky Rey Montha and Eddie Hara painted as many as 107 rooms in the hotel. “Each artist designed a floor, so we have six different urban contemporary style themed rooms here. We are doing this because we want to really integrate the art in the hotel,” Artotel Thamrin public relations manager Heni Juniarti said, adding that the hotel would launch on Oct. 17 this year. Artotel Indonesia’s first property open across the archipelago next year. According to the association of the Indonesian hotels (PHRI), there are currently about 285,000 star-rated hotel rooms available. “This is very important because in the end, when supply in the market is high and people have a lot of choices, they will pick accommodations that are unique and provide good service.”
  • 15. DesignNews14 The company is currently constructing two properties in Cikarang, West Java and Sanur, Bali, that are expected to open next year. It plans to expand the chain to Palembang, Makassar and Kendari over the next few years. Another player incorporating art in its hotels is Tauzia Hotel Management through its new brand Yello Hotel. Tauzia spokeswoman Yani Sinulingga said the company had decided to blend street art into its Yello accommodation as it was the perfect way to target the booming middle-class market in the country that sought freedom through arts. “We want to showcase freedom of expression in addition to urban art. Our artistic atmosphere with distinctive bright colors and cutting edge design will bring in a whole new market ,” she said. Just as with Artotel, Yello will incorporate street art in its lobby, rooms and meeting rooms. Fourteen Yello Hotel properties are being developed in major cities across Java and Bali, with its first one, Yello Seminyak (Bali), set to begin operations in the first quarter of 2014. The firm was optimistic that its art-themed hotel would pull in a 70 to 80 percent occupancy rate despite the highly competitive market, she said. A hotel in Jakarta that has included art to help enhance its services is the upscale Pullman Central Park in West Jakarta. It was distinctively designed with an “Industrial Raw” concept, a cross between a modern museum and a designer signature hotel. Pullman Central Park’s marketing communication executive, Arditiya Chandra Putra, said the art concept had been a success as the hotel was able to maintain its 80 percent occupancy rate on the weekends when most hotels had seen decreased rates. source: http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2013/09/23/hotels-turn-artists-touch-lure-guests. html Exterior Artotel Bedroom Lobby

  • 19. THE ROTATING TOWER IN DUBAI Dynamic Tower will be a rotating skyscraper measuring 80 stories high and rotating a full 360 degrees every 90 minutes. Dubai’s towering and record-breaking skyline could be about to change once more if plans for the world’s first rotating tower finally come to fruition. Dynamic Tower will be a rotating skyscraper measuring 80 stories high and rotating a full 360 degrees every 90 minutes with floors moving individually. Watch a video of what the building will be like here. The idea was originally mooted in 2008 but was put on hold as the financial crisis shocked the emirate’s property market. If successful, the project will be the first real estate development in the world where apartments are not categorised by their differing views. Surprisingly, the man behind the idea, David Fisher, has never before built a skyscraper, yet he is planning similar towers for Moscow, Paris, London and New York. “I did not design skyscrapers, but I feel ready to do so,” Fisher, founder and chairman of Dynamic Architecture Group, said in an interview with Associated Press. “You can build anything.” Dynamic Architecture DynamicArchitecture Powering the building’s constant turning will be several wind turbines on the roof, generating electricity for the structure’s movement as well as for its residents. Penthouse occupants will be able to park their cars in their apartments, thanks to specially designed lifts. A UK newspaper has estimated the tower will cost $541 million to build, although official details including cost, location and completion date are yet to be confirmed.

  • 20. PALACIO DE SAL Located about 220 miles south of Bolivia’s capital La Paz, the hotel was built using about 1 million 14 inch salt blocks which were used for the floor, walls, ceiling, beds, tables, chairs, sculptures and more. But don’t try to lick the walls; the hotel has a rule prohibiting it since licks can degrade the blocks and hence degrade the hotel. The hotel offers a variety of wonderful amenities to pamper its visitors including a dry sauna, steam room, saltwater pool and whirlpool baths. Enjoy a relaxing massage after your sauna or steam room sessions at the Palacio de Sal’s marvellous spa. Palacio de Sal in Bolivia - completely made of salt - Pool (Courtesy Palacio de Sal ) Built out of salt blocks, the amazing Palacio de Sal (Palace of Salt to English folks) is located at the edge of the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. The Salar de Uyuni has long been a popular tourist attraction for travellers around the world. Due to the scarcity of construction materials in the area the hotel was created out of the one material that is plentiful in area. The first hotel was built between 1993 and 1995 and soon became a popular tourist destination featuring 12 double rooms, a common bath and no shower. Due to its original location in the center of a desert there were various sanitary and environmental issues that cause the hotel to be dismantled in 2002. In 2007 a new hotel was created at a new location, some 25km from the town of Uyuni and it was given the name Palacio de Sal.

The original Hotel Palacio de Sal contains a small museum and is clearly in disrepair. If you’re unsure of what to order be sure to try the hotel’s specialty, Pollo a la Sal (Chicken a la Salt) for a truly tasty and delectable meal. If you’re more in the mood for livations, the hotel offers a Bar/Pub with a great game room to play billiards, chess and even an auditorium that holds up to forty guests. The Palacio de Sal is truly a unique and amazing experience giving you a distinctive environment to unwind in. The hotel also features a restaurant that serves elaborated dishes based on salt, llama meat and lamb from the local region. InnovationTechnology19
  • 21. ICE HOTEL It’s an unusual idea – every year a 5,500 square meter hotel is temporarily ‘borrowed’ from Sweden’s River Torne and come spring, the rooms and suites are returned to the river to be washed out to sea. The temporal Swedish ICEHOTEL is a complex built from ice, with a different design every year. Each winter it hosts guests and houses a collection of bespoke ice-art, created by selected artists from around the globe. Quebec Ice Hotel 100 people then set to work, they use ice blocks to partition the labyrinthine vaults into rooms, while the artists use begin to create their ice-pieces and sculpted rooms. To ensure quality of construction, the hotel is opened in sections as it is built, one every weekend throughout December, with the ice chapel opening on Christmas Day. When the hotel finally opens, it usually sees between 50,000 and 60,000 guests before closing again in mid-April. For those staying in the hotel, bed- time entails wrapping-up in thermal underwear, wooly hats and a sleeping bag, and lying on blocks of ice covered by reindeer hide, safe in the knowledge that thanks to the density and insulating properties of snice their room will never drop below a balmy minus eight degrees Celsius (17ºF). Ninety percent of the material to construct the ICEHOTEL comes from the river Torne – one of Europe’s last unexploited rivers. The river begins its annual freeze in October, and by March the ice is thick enough for the people of ICEHOTEL to descend upon it and start work, filling their warehouse with 4,000 tonnes of ice-blocks. InnovationTechnology20 Photographer: Christopher Hauser ICEHOTEL all started back in 1989, when founder Yngve Bergqvist organized a ice-sculpture workshop to attract tourists to the small village of Jukkasjärvi during the unpopular dark winter months. Their first project was an 60-sqare- metre igloo, named ARTic Hall. The igloo, proved so popular that it was rebuilt annually, and eventually people started to ask the obvious question; “Can I sleep in it?” Since then, ICEHOTEL has grown into a worldwide franchise, Stored during the summer, some of these blocks make the walls and furniture of the hotel, which this year has 65 rooms. The structure of the building is made from 30,000 cubic metres of ‘snice’ – a precision engineered snow/ice, made from a mixture of air and river water. Once October arrives, large metal moulds are erected on site and snice is sprayed upon them, hardening and compacting over a few days before the moulds are removed. Inside, some
