Marriott International heads to the tropical island of Belitung in Sumatra, Indonesia with the opening of the brand new Fairfield by Marriott Belitung.

Situated next to Tanjung Pendam Beach, the hotel offers remarkable sunset views, local culinary delights, and the warm hospitality. Nature lovers can tear themselves away from the white sand for a day to visit the Beraye Waterfalls and Batu Mentas Nature Reserve that is home to the endangered Tarsius monkey. 

Also well worth exploring are the 19th-century colonial houses in Manggar area, the Vihara Kwan Im Buddhist temple, the Giri Jati Balinese village and the Maritime Museum.

“Fairfield by Marriott is growing in this region and we now have 47 properties in the pipeline in Asia Pacific alone and more than 400 properties worldwide,” says Mike Fulkerson, vice president for brand and marketing Asia Pacific. 

“The brand offers a calming, reliable experience at a great value, and with the added warmth of Indonesian hospitality, Fairfield by Marriott Belitung promises to be a great retreat.” 

With architecture inspired by traditional Rumah Panggung stilted houses, the 136 guestrooms, including 11 suites, are flooded with natural daylight and face the tranquil swimming pool and ocean. 

Each spacious guestroom and suite features LED TV, free Wi-Fi, comfortable beds, as well as a generous bathroom. 

The contemporary Lobby Bar is a convenient space for a casual meeting while The Market retail store presents a convenient and tempting selection of grab-and-go refreshments to both hotel guests and visitors. 

A breakfast buffet is laid out at Kava Restaurant and features Indonesian favourites as well as traditional eats. 

Guests can also unwind under the sun on one of the loungers at Simpur Bar. Other facilities include a swimming pool with kids’ pool and a well-fitted gym that’s open around the clock.
