BON Hotels moves into Nigeria


South African hospitality company BON Hotels has taken over management, sales and marketing of four Protea hotels in Nigeria.

BON Hotels has, over the last few months, added Protea Hotel Abuja, Protea Hotel Delta, Protea Hotel Ikeja and Protea Hotel Victoria Island to its recently-formed West African joint venture, BON Hotels International West Africa.

Certain hotels will be managed by BON Hotels utilising the Protea Hotels brand, while others will become fully-fledged BON Hotels. All current general managers and staff will remain in place.

BON Hotels International West Africa was founded on 1 April, with hospitality stalwart Otto Stehlik serving as Executive Chairman.

Stehlik’s son Guy is CEO of BON Hotels, which is already negotiating a further five hotel management and marketing agreements in the region.
