Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 16 February 2009

Nakheel Hotels has completed the second phase extension of the Djibouti Palace Kempinski. The expansion of the hotel has now increased its initial 177 guest room inventory to a total of 254 rooms and 55 furnished apartments.

The Djibouti Palace Kempinski opened in November 2006 and was the first five-star hotel to open in Djibouti and the first hotel operated by Kempinski in East Africa.

The initial phase of the hotel was built in a record nine months on 49,000 m2 of reclaimed land in a Red Sea inlet. The hotel was a major development achievement as 97% of the construction materials and hotel furnishings had to be imported. This enormous logistics effort was made possible by the Port of Djibouti operated by DP World, another Dubai World company

 The opening of the second phase of the hotel coincides with the inauguration of the opening of Terminal 2 of the Port of Djibouti.

Joe Sita, CEO of Nakheel Hotels said, “We are delighted with the successful expansion of the Djibouti Palace Kempinski, Djibouti’s first five-star hotel. Nakheel Hotels has always followed a strategy of investing in key gateway cities around the world, alongside up-and-coming destinations which offer huge growth potential. The expansion of both our hotel and DP World’s Port of Djibouti reflects growth in business travel and investment in East Africa.”

Located at the Horn of Africa, the hotel boasts state-of-the-art banquet and conference facilities and has hosted high profile conferences and events, including the COMESA (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa) Summit attended by leading politicians and Heads of State from around the world.

The second phase of the hotel integrates the traditional Swahili and Arabic architectural style of the initial phase and includes six levels of deluxe hotel rooms and suites, retail outlets, lounges and restaurants, a modern gym, as well as luxury hotel apartments. Construction of both phases of the hotel was carried out by renowned Japanese builder Taisei.
