Hotel Management Japan Co. Ltd. (HMJ), a prominent hotel operator that manages some of Japan’s renowned hotels such as the Oriental Hotel Tokyo Bay, Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel, Hilton Tokyo Odaiba, and Namba Oriental Hotel, through its sister company, HMJ International Co., Ltd. (HMJI), is expanding its presence in Indonesia and Malaysia through its establishment of P.T. HMJ International Indonesia (HMJII).
HMJII was formed as a joint venture between HMJI and the former shareholders of Topotels Investmana Manajement (Topotels) on January 6, 2020. Asides from the joint venture with Topotels, HMJ is planning to open their latest brand hotel – Amoda, a 4-star hotel in Jakarta, in 2022.
“We are very pleased to announce our new partnership with Topotels, one of Asia’s up and coming hotel chains. Our new partnership allows the HMJ group to expand outside of Japan and pursue the group’s goal of becoming an international hotel chain,” says Allan Takahashi, President of HMJ and Representative Director of HMJ International. “Our new partnership will also provide opportunities for Topotels hotel employees to work and train at several of HMJ’s hotels in Japan and vice versa,” says Takahashi.
HMJI, along with its sister company, Hotel Management Japan Co. Ltd., operates 20 hotels throughout Japan with close to 6,000 hotel rooms, and expects to open 4 new hotels in 2021. Established in 2005, the HMJ group employs about 2,700 staff in Japan, and has grown its hotel operation platform from 13 hotels in 2018 to its current portfolio of 20 hotels.
