February 13th, 2014 – As one of the first trendy budget hotels near to Makassar's Losari Beach, Archipelago International's favehotel Daeng Tompo introduce a new standard of accommodation to the area when finally opens its doors for a soft opening.

favehotel Daeng Tompo is ideally located just 5 minutes from Makassar's famous Losari Beach which lies in the southern part of Makassar, South Sulawesi. The beach was once dubbed as the world's longest dining table because of the seemingly never-ending tent stalls that sell fresh seafood, peanuts, bananas and other local snacks along the shore. In fact, in the early days, Makassar residents called Losari Beach the Fish Market and to this day visitors can still encounter many indigenous merchants who sell their ocean goods upon the sands.

Guests can also enjoy easy access to the Trans Studio Makassar and GTC Mall, as well as the Sumba Opu souvenir shopping centre nearby. The hotel is just 45 minutes from Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport.
