INTERNATIONAL PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Swiss-Belhotel International has announced that the Group's global website is now available in Bahasa Indonesia as well as in English. This important development is in line with Swiss-Belhotel International's commitment to providing international standard hospitality facilities and services to Indonesian business and leisure travellers. Visitors to the Group's website can access the Bahasa Indonesia pages by clicking on the Indonesian flag icon in the top right corner on any page of the English language website (/en/). Visitors can also simply type in /id/ into the address bar on their Internet browser for immediate access.
Viewing the Group's website in Bahasa Indonesia will make it more convenient for Indonesian travellers to find and book accommodation in a Swiss-Belhotel International property not only in Indonesia but in any of the 11 countries in which the Group operates. Not only providing a listing of the Group's hotels and their facilities, the website also provides news, information and updates about Swiss-Belhotel International and information about travel destinations.
Swiss-Belhotel International currently manages more than 50 hotels, resorts and projects in Indonesia. These properties are located not only in the big cities and tourist destinations of Indonesia, but also in smaller, less prominent towns of the country. In fact, Swiss-Belhotel manages hotels and resorts in more than 20 cities and regions of Indonesia. Worldwide, Swiss-Belhotel International now manages more than 70 hotels and projects and this number will increase rapidly within the coming two years, particularly in Indonesia, China and the Middle East.
Mr. Yann Fruchart, Senior Group Director e-Commerce stated, “I am very pleased to announce that our Bahasa Indonesia website is online. This website will give us a competitive advantage in Indonesia and will also allow a greater flow of Indonesian business towards our hotels and resorts in other countries.” He added that searching for Swiss-Belhotel International on the Indonesian versions of Google, Yahoo, Bing and other global search engines will automatically bring up Swiss-Belhotel International's Bahasa Indonesia pages.
“Swiss-Belhotel International is pleased to announce this new development. The launch of a new language on a website is very complex. Our e-Commerce team have worked hard to develop and launch the Bahasa Indonesia website and I would like to thank the entire e-Commerce team for their hard work. Having our Group website available in Bahasa Indonesia makes it more convenient for Indonesian travellers to locate and book a hotel in Indonesia and in any of the countries in which Swiss-Belhotel International operates,” commented Mr. Gavin M. Faull, Chairman and President.
