Indonesia's hotel and restaurant businessmen predicted their business would drop significantly following two bomb attacks that wrecked parts of JW Marriot and Ritz Carlton Hotel in Jakarta on Friday, the private news portal detikcom reported.

The room rate occupancy was predicted to slump 50 percent compared to holiday season several weeks ago that briefly reached 80-90 percent.

"I think this incident would bear negative impact, especially to foreign tourist arrivals. This also would have impact on domestic tourists to Jakarta," Johnnie Sugiarto, the Secretary of Indonesian Hotels and Restaurants Association and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the El John Hotel, told the news portal.

He said that the effect would be felt nationwide and from experience of the previous bomb incidents, hotel business would only be recovered after three months since the incidents.

He assured that following the incident, room reservation cancellation and delay would occur.

Two high explosive bombs occurred in Ritz Carlton and JW Marriot Hotels in Jakarta on Friday morning, killing nine people and wounding more than 50 others.
