As early as 1863 the Cavadino family was represented in the Asian region by our managing-director's great-grandfather Conrad Alexander Willem Cavadino who started Cavadino & Co with a restaurant, bakery and shop at the corner of Rijswijk (Jalan Veteran) and Citadelweg (Jalan Veteran I); a then high-class neighbourhood in Batavia; now known as the centre of Jakarta, on the Island of Java in Indonesia.

In 1872 the main building turned into Hotel Cavadino while the building in front of the hotel accomodated his retail business.  Toko Cavadino (toko = shop in Indonesian) sold everything from sweets, chocolates and cigars from The Netherlands and Manila to wine, beer, liquirs and everyday household items.

So famous had the Cavadino business become that the bridge in front of the hotel was named after it early on.

The building is still in use as a hotel and recognised to be the oldest hotel in Jakarta, albeit with different owners.  In 1899 it was renamed Hotel Lion d'Or, becoming Park Hotel in 1941 and the present Hotel Sriwijaya in 1950.  But taxi drivers will still take you to this hotel when you mention Hotel Cavadino (there are 2 hotels in Jakarta called Hotel Sriwijaya).  Also the bridge is still there and the building formerly housing the toko is now the hotel's restaurant.
