Mövenpick inks deal for Nigerian property


Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has revealed plans to open its first property in Abuja (Nigeria).

The company has signed a deal with Queen Amina Garden Ventures, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Urban Shelter, a  Nigerian property development company, to manage the 250-key Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Abuja.

With a projected launch date of early 2019, the upscale hotel will be Mövenpick’s third property in West Africa.

Located in Abuja’s Jabi Lake district, an upmarket residential area undergoing rapid development, the Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Abuja will offer a lakeside setting and road links to the nearby international airport and city centre.

The property will be a focal point of The Queen Amina Garden, a leisure and entertainment destination currently under construction, designed to cater to Nigeria’s growing affluent society and international guests, with key features including a retail promenade and residences.

The hotel will comprise 250 rooms and suites; five food and beverage outlets including two specialty restaurants, one all-day-dining restaurant, a poolside bar/eatery and a lobby lounge; an executive club lounge; a fitness and spa facility for outside members; and a large resort setting including several pools, restaurants and tennis courts for hotel guests.
