There is also a rooftop Sky Lounge to unwind at the end of the day, overlooking the city.
“As the largest country in Southeast Asia and one of the world’s most populous nations, Indonesia is a key market for Best Western,” commented Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ Managing Director of International Operations – Asia. “Following recent hotel openings in Jakarta and Bali, we are delighted to continue our nationwide expansion by launching Best Western Kindai Hotel Banjarmasin and entering one of Indonesia’s rapidly emerging regional hubs.”
