Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has marked a milestone in its Africa expansion strategy with construction work on the 160-room upscale Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan now underway.
A 2020 opening date was announced in a ceremony that heralded the acceleration of the Swiss hospitality firm’s development plans in the Sub-Saharan region.
Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan will be the company’s first property in Côte d’Ivoire and one of four currently in active development in the region.
The other three are Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in Kenya, which is on track to open in 2018, Mövenpick Hotel Addis Ababa in Ethiopia set to open in 2019, and Mövenpick Hotel & Conference Centre Abuja in Nigeria set for completion in 2020.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts currently operates a 260-key property in Ghana – Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra.
Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan is located in the city’s Le Plateau business district.
After completion, the property will feature an all-day dining restaurant; a lounge/bar; an Executive Club lounge; a state-of-the-art fitness centre; and contemporary meeting space.
