Still hot on the heels on the KAGUM Hotels’ milestone achievement of breaking MURI Record for the most amount of simultaneous Hotel openings across Indonesia in one day that will be celebrated on a grand event in Golden Flower Hotel Bandung on 23 August 2014, we also launched various programs to support the big event. One of them was KAGUM Hotels Media Visit in Bandung to TRIBUN JABAR, RADAR BANDUNG, and PIKIRAN RAKYAT, which was designed primarily to promote the event in addition to re-familiarize our media friends about our lineup of quality Hotels and establishments. The media visit was performed by our Bandung General/Hotel Managers and members of KAGUM Hotels Marketing Communication team.
Other programs include 1 day 15 talk shows with our favorite Bandung radio stations and a KAGUM Social Responsibility program with a donation event to orphanage children that takes place in Serela Cihampelas, supported by our various sponsors and partners such as INACO, SERUNI, BCS COOKIES, MAICIH, and CITILINK, as well the Bandung BMW community.

Titled Berbagi Kebahagiaan di Hari Kemerdekaan RI ke-69 Bersama Hotel Gino Feruci Braga dan Anak Yatim (“Sharing happiness in the 69th independence day with Gino Feruci Braga Hotel and orphans”), this event on 17 August 2014 was inspired by the social concerns the Hotel has for those less fortunate. In this opportunity, the Hotel invited Mutiara Bani Sholihin orphanage.
In this event—made possible only by great cooperation with BMWCCI Chapter Bandung community—the orphans get to experience a very special treatment with an exclusive pick-up from the orphanage to the Hotel with luxurious BMW cars. The pickup was also followed by OB VAN from AUTORADIO 88.9 FM Bandung, and together it became a convoy that traveled all around Bandung with stops at various special places such as the iconic Gedung Merdeka where everyone took commemorative pictures together.
Once the guests of honor have arrived at the main venue, the Gino Feruci Braga Hotel, they were greeted by various entertaining programs such as educational show by Faber Castell and free teeth check-ups by Advent Hospital. A special performer, one of the finalists of The Master show on television, Mr. Abu Marlo, also entertained the guests with his many special repertoire of fantastic magic tricks.
Winners of KAGUM Idol program—a fun in-house KAGUM event dedicated to find the most talented artist and singer from our company—also performed along with the KAGUM Hotels Pom Pom Boys, courtesy of Gino Feruci Braga Hotel. Solo singer Ms. Cynthia Ivana also performed and there was also a special performance by Kuburan Band.
The invited orphans also performed their own special drama show, and the whole day ended with the giving of certificates to all the partners and sponsors that made the whole thing possible. The Hotel also provided numerous gifts for the children to take home, courtesy of our partners and sponsors, such as books from Gramedia Bookstore and various packages from Ace Hardware, BCS Cookies, Faber Castell, and Nutrive Benecol. Seruni Photo also provided photo booths for fun photo sessions.
Of course, at the end of the day, the children were also escorted back towards their home using the luxurious BMW cars, courtesy of BMWCCI Chapter Bandung.
Thank you for all the participants and friends that make the whole event successful!
On August 7th, 2014, KAGUM Hotels along with various partners, sponsors, and friends launched the first beginning of yet another KSR—KAGUM Social Responsibility—program called “Bedah 100 Toilet SD” (100 Toilets Elementary School Operation), where KAGUM Hotels constructed and installed fully functional modern bathrooms in numerous elementary schools in and around Bandung, in hopes that it can promote a greater awareness in a healthy lifestyle amongst elementary school children in particular, and the public at large in general. The maiden launch for the program started at Centeh Elementary School located at Jl. Centeh, Samoja, Bandung.
Mr. Henry Husada as the CEO of KAGUM Hotels, Ms. Rena Husada as Project Development Director of KAGUM Hotels, and Mr. Nandang Djuarsa as Corporate General Manager of KAGUM Hotels, were all there to represent KAGUM Hotels during the event. Other attendees included Mr. Ridwan Kamil as the Mayor of Bandung along with the staff of Bandung governmental offices, members of Forum Arsitektur Bandung, representatives from Pikiran Rakyat FM, representatives from various corporate partners, and also school principals of many schools in and around Bandung.
The event began with the art performance by the students of the school, featuring Sundanese dancing and songs, and followed by welcoming speech by the representatives of Centeh Elementary School. It was then followed by speech from Mr. Ridwan Kamil, before the official surrendering of Appreciation Certificates/Charters to everyone that contributed to the success of the event. Of course, the event also included a ribbon cutting ceremony that signified the formal beginning of the entire program. The day was then closed with socializing event (with lunch) together with our media friends/partners in Golden Flower Hotel Bandung that was also attended by Mr. Ridwan Kamil.
Mr. Ridwan Kamil has this to say about the program after inspecting the toilet built in the Centeh Elementary School: “It is truly a wonderful thing; this is most probably the best toilet and canteen for elementary school in the entirety of Bandung.” He then likened it to the toilets available in a 3 stars Hotel, “The ceramics are first class quality, with sparkling free branded toilet and a design that is not monotonous.”
As the name of the program suggest, Centeh Elementary School is just the 1st school in this program, as KAGUM Hotels will also install high quality toilets and canteens through 99 more other schools in and around Bandung. We would not be able to do it without support from all of our friends and partners!
