Your Host & The Team

Lucienne AnharLucienne Anhar
“Tugu Hotels aim to keep the rich cultural heritage and the romantic, thousands-years-old history of Indonesia alive. Our lifelong passion for Indonesian arts and history was started by my father and proprietor, Anhar Setjadibrata, who had begun collecting Indonesian antiques when he was a young poor medical student in the 1960s. His passion then grew to become a family mission to bring back to life the art, soul and romance of Indonesia, and to introduce them to the world in a package of dreamy landscapes, atmospheric interior and arts that transports guests to another world of ancient kingdoms and quixotic legends. Each Tugu is designed, built, and managed personally by the owner’s family without outside architect or interior designers, as each of them is a work of love. Secret Retreats is a fellowship of passionate owners opening their doors to share their love and legends.”

Anhar Setjadibrata – Keeper of Indonesian Art

The quintessential Renaissance Man, Anhar Setiadibrata is a hotelier, physician, lawyer and the owner of a priceless collection of fine Indonesian art and cultural antiquities. His passion for Indonesian art and history began while he was a young medical student in Java and today has turned into the stunning group of Tugu Hotels that now showcase his art collection.

Anhar began collecting antiques in 1972 at the age of 25 when he was a medical representative for an international pharmaceutical company and travelled to visit doctors in small villages. During these visits, he had the opportunity to explore Java, Bali, Nusa Tenggara, Timor and Borneo, and came across many people who were discarding priceless antiquities and cultural relics. They believed these historical treasures to be out of style and old-fashioned. Anhar, however, saw the beauty and rich history of these artefacts. His endless search for cultural antiquities began as a quest, fueled by his youthful idealism to learn the history of his country. He never thought of collecting for profit, but as a way to save these treasures and a tangible piece of Indonesia’s history. As his collection grew, Anhar realised the artefacts needed to be shared and opened his first boutique museum hotel, Tugu in east Java city of Malang, in 1989.
