The Sheraton Belitung Resort is a gorgeous new Marriott property in Indonesia, surrounded by stunning scenery and fascinating wildlife.
The 169-room hotel is located 45-minutes away from H.A.S. Hanandjoeddin International Airport and a short drive away from the coast of Tanjung Kelayangsits. It is surrounded by more than 100 small islands in a place that is home to more than 1,000 different types of flora and fauna. This includes the Karamunting flower which only grows in Belitung, and the Tarsius, one of the world’s smallest primates, found only on some islands in Southeast Asia.
Rooms at the Sheraton Belitung offer ocean, lagoon or garden views, and feature 55-inch LCD televisions, high-speed wireless internet, and motion sensors that automatically activate and deactivate the AC when guests enter or leave the room.
“We are delighted to be opening the Sheraton Belitung Resort, which is the 8th Sheraton branded hotel to open in Indonesia,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding China), Marriott International. “Sheraton is Marriott International’s most global brand, and this opening marks another exciting moment in the continued brand expansion across Asia Pacific. Belitung is one of Indonesia’s best kept secrets, and the arrival of Sheraton Belitung Resort will only enhance its appeal as a destination for couples and families alike to enjoy this paradise together.”
The resort features three food and beverage outlets, 7,480 square feet of event space, a 24-hour fitness centre, a kid’s club with educational programming, an outdoor infinity pool, and a Shine Spa.
Local ingredients for inspired treatments
The spa features six treatment rooms and draws from local inspiration and wisdom, using products with local ingredients for treatments and services inspired by the surrounding land. These ingredients include: Daun Simpor (Dilleniasuffruticosa), Peppercorn seed (piper nigrum), and Calamansi (Citrofortunellamicrocarpa). A Calamansi Bath, which is a bathtub filled with the aroma and fresh slices of the Calamansi citrus fruit, soothes and revives guests.
According to Spa Manager, Sih Rini Angernani, a wonderful treatment that holds local wisdom is the relaxing massage using the black peppercorn compress ball, as Belitung is a main producer of black pepper.
Shine Spa is using Book4Time software and Sih Rini Angernani says that the system has been very helpful, “especially for the pre-opening team,” and that the support team has been quick to respond to questions while the spa team learns the ropes and gets accustomed.
Indonesia’s hidden gem
“We are thrilled to open the first five-star hotel in Belitung, and to welcome local and international travellers to discover Indonesia’s hidden gem with Sheraton Belitung Resort,” said Yvonne Wan, General Manager of the resort. “We look forward to creating memorable stay experiences for our guests that bring to life Sheraton’s signature hospitality initiatives, with a green conscience.”
