Archipelago International Chairman Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

07 September 2018

Jakarta, Indonesia, September 2018 – Archipelago International, a leading Indonesia-based hospitality management company, is excited to announce that this year’s Tourism Hotel Investment Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Chairman and Founder, Charles Brookfield.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to the hospitality industry over their lifetime, namely through their actions, deeds and accomplishments.

Archipelago International, under Mr. Brookfield’s leadership, has created many firsts for the group, the industry, and for the country, setting itself up as an industry leader rather than a trend follower.

In 1997, Mr Brookfield set out with a vision to transform the industry. Over the course of the last two decades, Archipelago has made that vision a reality, pioneering the first condotel concept, initiating the budget hotel boom, championing cloud computing and jump-starting eCommerce in Indonesia before it became an industry standard.

Mr. Brookfield reflects on his journey: "It is a great honour to be recognised by my peers in the industry. I am forever grateful for all the opportunities Indonesia has provided my team as we continue to strive to become better and better in our services - to our owners and guests and the hotel industry as a whole. My dream was to develop an organization which would bring together the strengths of international and local leadership to forge a company which hotel owners and developers would trust to protect and guide their hotel investments over decades of service. This award motivates me to further contribute to the hospitality community."

Today, Archipelago International has set a new benchmark, being the number one hotel operator in Indonesia with a record number of hotel openings comprising over 18,500 rooms.

Most recently, Archipelago International was also recognized among the top 100 largest hotel chains in the world by the prestigious Hotels magazine. Based on its number of hotels and associating rooms, Archipelago International is ranked 78th in the world, placing the company as the number one hotel management chain in Indonesia.
