GLATTBRUGG, Switzerland – Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will debut in three new African markets over the next four years as its plans to establish a presence in key cities across the continent’s thriving Sub-Saharan region come to fruition.

In a move that will take its Africa portfolio to 28 properties strong, the expansionist Swiss hospitality brand will open three upscale hotels across Kenya in East Africa and Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa, between 2016 and early 2019. The expansion trail will commence with the opening of the 223-key Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in mid-2016, followed by the 212-key Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan in early 2018, rounding off with the 250-key Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Abuja in 2019.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ African portfolio currently comprises 23 hotels, resorts, and cruise ships spanning five countries including Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and Ghana.

The company will open its third property in Morocco, the Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi & Palais des Congrès, Marrakech, in mid-2016 and has inked a management deal for a third hotel in neighboring Tunisia – the Mövenpick Hotel Les Berges du Lac Tunis, scheduled for completion in 2016.
