Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts to construct first property in Kenya
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to construct a 223-room property in Kenya as of mid-2016 a move that is set to boost the hospitality industry in the country. The Swiss company will construct the property in Nairobi’s Westlands area.
“The hospitality landscape in Nairobi is evolving with the arrival of new design-led upscale hotels giving legacy properties a run for their money,” Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts senior vice-president for Africa Alan O’Dea said in a statement.
The property in Kenya which will constitute 223 rooms and 54 spacious contemporary one- and two-bedroom apartments is set to target business tourists and long-stay couples and families.
“Visitor numbers to Kenya are expected to increase with growth driven by China, Russia, the Middle East, India, and neighboring African nations,” said O’Dea.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will be part of high-end hotels like Villa Rosa Kempinski, Radisson Blu, and the Sankara, among others, which could have a short-term impact on revenue per room.
“While this has put pressure on revenue available in the short term, the forecast upswing in inbound arrivals and the Kenyan government’s proactive approach to promoting business tourism set the scene for strong market growth and we are well placed to capitalize on this positive trend with the opening of Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi,” the senior vice-president added.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is a hotel management company headquartered in Baar, Switzerland. They are owned by Mövenpick Holding and the Kingdom Group.
