PrideInn Hotel in Kenya plans to construct other flagships hotels in Shanzu, Kisumu and Eldoret to respond to growing business travelers.
The expansion construction project is expected to cost US$ 24m.
“We have had to invest in the expansion of our existing hotels as well as extend our footprint across Kenya and, indeed, in the region in response to growing business travelers. The constant support we receive from our investors is a great sign of confidence in our business strategy,” Managing Director for PrideInn Hotel in Kenya Hasnain Noorani said.
The planned construction of Shanzu Hotel in Mombasa County will have 300 rooms and will be opened in November this year.
They have also invested highly on refurbishing PrideInn Raphta Road, at Westlands, Nairobi and increased the hotel’s rooms from 27 to 100.

“Our investment in superior customer service and brand enhancement training has contributed to our strengthened position in hospitality, we have invested heavily in understanding the mind of the business traveler and meeting the requirements, which has seen us realize our growth ambitions so far,” said Mr Noorani.
