Forget the hassle of travel documents, jet lag, and a 7 hour flight – now you can experience authentic Osaka in your own city. Start from 13 November – 12 December, Moxy Bandung will bring the wonders of Osaka to Bandung. With Indonesians comprising one of the top outbound travelers to Osaka, Moxy Bandung will recreate signature iconic elements of Osaka and Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda to domestic travelers. 

“We understand that COVID-19 has brought about challenges of traveling overseas to many,” said Ramesh Jackson, Marriott International’s Market Vice President of Indonesia. “With this pilot campaign, we want to leverage Marriott International’s significant distribution of hotels across some of the world’s most exciting destinations to spark travel inspirations on where Marriott can take them when travel is more free. This year has without a doubt been a very unusual one, but we believe we will travel more freely again.” 

From the moment a guest books a stay to their check-in and check-out experience, Moxy Bandung will recreate signature experiences and moments reminiscent of Osaka. 

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by our crew in the Japanese style. Guests can also experience Osaka virtual tour at the Lobby and TV channel to add more Osaka vibes and exploring Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda by Instagram Live. For an added layer of fun, Moxy Bandung will have Instagram Live cooking and bartending featuring Japanese signature F&B. In collaboration with No Nihongo Gakuseikai (Bandung’s Japanese Community), Moxy Bandung will have Japanese activation event; Origami, Shuujikai (Japanese Calligraphic Art), and Sakura Taishougoto (Japanese Instrumental Music) twice a month. At The Now Lobby Bar, guests will also have the option to taste iconic street food from Osaka such as Edamame, Yakitori, Takoyaki, and Okonomiyaki.

Reserve “Discover Osaka” package and guests will get complimentary welcome amenities, yakitori platter, Nomidaore Cooler (Moxy Osaka Shin Umeda signature drink), also origami paper where you can create a fun Japanese creative paper folding while enjoying the room. Don’t worry, there’s an origami instruction coming with it!

“We can’t wait to invite our guests to experience as if they were staying in Osaka, from the moment the guests arrive at their departure, without having to go far abroad. This initiative is in line with our passion for supporting the government in re-echoing the local tourism industry so that the challenges we are currently facing together do not become a barrier for people to travel safely and comfortably,” said I Wayan Raksa, Moxy Bandung Captain.

This pilot campaign will feature 13 hotels across the Marriott International portfolio in Asia Pacific, recreating more than 10 of our guests’ favorite destinations at home from Bali, Bangkok, Seoul, Paris to New York.
