Tinggal has seized this opportunity by providing rooms in Indonesian destinations such as Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Lombok, Bogor, Manado, Yogyakarta, and Malang.

Our 100% focus in this market has enabled us to generate 40% more bookings month over month for our hotel partners. This clearly demonstrates the booming budget travel segment in Indonesia.
“There are currently 40,000 small hotels and are expected to grow by 30% plus in the next two to three years. Most of these small hotels are family-run operations that are always struggling with sales, marketing, support, and operations."
Tinggal gives all hotel partners a dedicated interfaces, 360- degree imagery technology along with travel data and trends live from the platform to enable hotel owners to position their properties competitively while helping them collect profits.
