Erastus Radjimin

It was during his internship in Hawaii that Erastus truly found his passion for the hospitality industry. After working in more hotels in London and Singapore, Erastus finally felt confident to found his own chain of hotels, ARTOTEL. Working with his sister Christine, the siblings have grown the chain of art-inspired boutique hotels into a group with branches in Surabaya, Jakarta and Bali. Despite his doubts in the beginning, the uniquely designed ARTOTEL, with its customised and individually designed rooms, has proven to be a big hit. ARTOTEL Jakarta has been known to have an occupancy rate of 97 per cent, an astonishing number for a relatively new brand. Building on this success, ARTOTEL is looking to expand to even more parts of Indonesia in the coming years.
