Marriott International will extend its operations in Africa with much more than 30 new hotels by the finish of 2024, the corporation announced Tuesday.
The regional expansion is “largely driven by [Marriott’s] select-service brands, which represent half of the company’s current development pipeline in the continent,” the corporation stated in a new release.
Among the self-service brands incorporated in the expansion are Protea Hotels by Marriott and Four Points by Sheraton. Marriott plans to introduce ten Protea properties across Angola, Kenya, Malawi and South Africa (accounting for 5) in the region—adding to its footprint of much more than 60 hotels across nine nations in Africa, according to the corporation. Marriott expects to open its second Nigerian Four Points by Sheraton house, with new properties in Cape Verde, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda and Senegal.
Marriott also plans to expand its luxury footprint in the area by the finish of 2024, like The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis and JW Marriott. The corporation also expects to launch Delta Hotels in Africa subsequent year, according to Marriott.
The expansion would add much more than five,000 rooms to Marriott’s present portfolio of much more than 23,000 rooms in practically 130 properties across 20 nations in Africa, according to the corporation.
The corporation cited the region’s altering market place and “opportunities to expand in major gateway cities, commercial centers, and resort destinations” amongst the causes for its planned development, Marriott regional VP of improvement in Africa Karim Cheltout stated in a statement.
