Asia: Historic ship to offer luxury stays for future Bintan visitors

In partnership with:

A century-old ship will make its permanent home on Bintan island, Indonesia and take on its new role as a luxury heritage hotel that caters to both leisure travel and corporate events markets.

The Doulos Phos, built just two years after the Titanic in 1914, will be land-berthed off Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal come 3Q2015 and converted into a five-star hotel offering some 100 cabins with an average size of 25m2. Larger suites, some with balconies, will be offered, as will a Master Marina Suite which will be converted from the captain’s cabin.

A small number of cabins which once served as spartan accommodation for travelling missionaries when the ship was SS Roma, a pilgrim vessel in the late 1940s, will be marketed as Experience Cabins.

Other onboard facilities include a maritime museum, a 180-seat all-day-dining restaurant, three meeting rooms with capacity for 30 to 50 pax each, a boardroom and a library. They will be joined by infrastructure on land, including a banquet hall for 300 to 400 guests, a piano lounge and a semi-fine dining restaurant at the stern of the ship, an al fresco restaurant that will serve South-east Asian cuisine, as well as a spa, Jacuzzi and swimming pool.
