Per Aquum has appointed Duarte Correia as
General Manager of the Essque Zalu Zanzibar in Tanzania.
Portuguese-born Duarte honed his skills in some
of the world’s leading luxury boutique hotels in the UK and
Vietnam before leveraging his talents to become one of the
youngest hotel general managers in Mauritius, and most recently, a
consultant in Zanzibar.
After taking over the management contract in
December 2014, Minor Hotel Group (MHG) announced that Essque Zalu
Zanzibar would be transformed into the newest member of Per
Aquum’s portfolio following the completion of the first phase of
the upgrade programme targeting accommodation and selected public
The resort’s 49 suites and villas nestle over
the Indian Ocean on the northern coast of Zanzibar. The property
will be re-launched as a Per Aquum resort in early 2016.
Duarte said, "Joining Minor Hotel Group and
spearheading the transformation of Essque Zalu Zanzibar into a Per
Aquum resort marks a natural progression of my desire to continue operating unique resorts in exclusive destinations. What sets Essque Zalu Zanzibar apart is its distinctive sense of style, its
appreciation for individuality and an uncompromising service –
qualities already shared with Per Aquum resorts.”
