Tinggal, an online marketplace for high-quality hotels, started early 2016 with a mission to provide gold standard budget accommodation in Indonesia.

It now offers more than 400 hotel and accommodation options with over 3,000 high-quality rooms daily in more than 16 cities across Indonesia.
Tourism has clearly become one of the focus areas and a critical priority for the Indonesian government besides manufacture and agriculture. Targeting 20 million tourists by 2019, Indonesia is in need to expand and leverage its properties by connecting them to the internet, as today’s digitally savvy travelers. Tinggal has seized this opportunity by providing high-quality rooms in Indonesia’s top destinations such as Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Lombok, Bogor, Manado, Yogyakarta, and Malang.
Arjun Chopra, Co-Founder of Tinggal said, “We’ve always believed in the enormous opportunity which Indonesia offers to travelers. 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 2-3 years. Most of these small hotels are family-run operations that are always struggling with sales, marketing, support, and operations.”
