As a brand new hotel, the Swiss Belresort Dago Heritage has good prospects going forward. Besides its fantastic location and facilities for general guests visiting Bandung, the resort also makes a superb place for golfers to stay.
“At the moment, the guests who come often are non-golfers. We understand that there may be many golfers who don't know about Swiss Belresort. We actually have a ‘Stay and Play’ package for golfers. For Rp2.5 million, they are able to stay here for two nights and play a round of 18 holes at Dago Heritage. However, we are also preparing a package for one night with the same playing option. We are waiting for the time to publish. Hopefully, with these packages many guests who are golfers will choose to visit Swiss Belresort,” said Bagus.
