Indonesia’s first MGallery hotel for Yogyakarta

( Accor has added its new high-end MGallery label to Indonesia after the repositioning of the Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta (formerly Grand Mercure Yogyakarta). The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta becomes the second MGallery in Asia following the opening earlier this month of the Vie Hotel Bangkok.

MGallery is a small collection of highly-distinctive, upscale hotels that have an exceptional personality through one or more of four principal elements: vision, design, history, or location. Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta has been selected to join MGallery thanks to its remarkable history and refinement. Today there are 19 MGallery hotels on 5 continents.

Gerard Guillouet, vice president Accor Malaysia – Indonesia – Singapore commented: “I am very pleased to welcome the MGallery collection to the country, with the transformation of the Grand Mercure Yogyakarta to The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta. This historic hotel provided a wonderful blank canvas from which the hotel team has built a service experience through daily rituals and bringing the central Javanese culture to life within the hotel, all within the authentic setting of this hotel that is an instrumental part of the Yogyakarta landscape”.

Elegantly set in the heart of Yogyakarta, close to Malioboro street and the palace of Yogyakarta Sultanate, the majestic building of The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta dates back to the early 1900s. The setting of the hotel captures the colonial essence enriched with the elegance of Javanese and Chinese decorative features. The ambience represents a feeling of a classical bygone era wrapped in contemporary comfort, an ideal setting for discerning travelers.

The hotel boasts 144 exquisite rooms, including 10 suites and 1 disabled room, each having private balconies overlooking the urban streetscape, maintained hotel grounds, or the hotel swimming pool.

An elegant design reflecting the ambience of the area and the spirit of the century-old building echoes throughout the rooms. Modern comforts, including satellite TV, WiFi connection, and IDD telephone facilities are integrated into all rooms. The luxurious suites provide ultimate relaxation opportunities with grand bathrooms and spacious bedrooms.

An array of Eastern, Indonesian and western dishes are offered at Paprika restaurant with the open kitchen showcasing the chefs’ talent in preparing a fusion of flavors. For a relaxing drink, 1918's terrace bar is the perfect location, overlooking an open-air courtyard with water features. Its mellow ambience is an ideal accompaniment to an evening cocktail. For those looking for a faster tempo, head to the trendy Vino Bar with nightly entertainment.

Guests can also enjoy body and mind rejuvenation options at My Spa, where age-old Javanese and contemporary treatments meet to retreat from urban stress and to experience the world of divine wellness - an experience that promises to relax, revitalize, and enchant.

The hotel offers a full range of business facilities, including function rooms with the capacity to host events for up to 600 people, WiFi connection access, and full secretarial services with modern equipment.
