Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will debut in three new African markets over the next four years as its plan to establish a presence in key cities across the continent’s thriving Sub-Saharan region is achieved.
The expansion will open three upscale hotels across Kenya in East Africa and Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa, between 2016 and early 2019. The expansion trail will commence with the opening of the 223-key Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in mid-2016, followed by the 212-key Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan in early 2018, rounding off with the 250-key Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Abuja in 2019.
Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi is a 15-storey property with stand-out features including a revolving tower with panoramic downtown views plus extensive dining, leisure and meetings facilities.
Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan is located in the centre of Cote d’Ivoire’s largest city, adjacent to the corporate and government district and offering guests an impressive range of business, MICE and leisure amenities.
Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Abuja is in the capital’s upmarket Jabi Lake district and a part of a stunning leisure and hospitality master development, the property’s highlights will include five food and beverage outlets, a dedicated conference centre and spa and fitness facilities.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ African portfolio currently comprises 23 hotels, resorts, and cruise ships spanning five countries including Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and Ghana.
The company will open its third property in Morocco, the Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi & Palais des Congrès, Marrakech, in mid-2016 and has inked a management deal for a third hotel in neighbouring Tunisia – the Mövenpick Hotel Les Berges du Lac Tunis, scheduled for completion in 2016.
