Mövenpick to Open 11 Hotels in 9 Countries by End-2018

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans to open eleven new properties in nine countries by the end of 2018.

 The Swiss hospitality firm, which currently operates 83 hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, will make its debut in five new countries – Bangladesh, Iraq, Kenya, Malaysia and Maldives – while boosting its cluster of hotels in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Tunisia and Thailand.

“In 2018, our global expansion drive really steps up a gear, with the 11 new openings planned, putting us firmly on track to meet our target of 125 properties by 2020 and introducing the Mövenpick brand in some very desirable locations,” said Olivier Chavy, President & CEO, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Three of Mövenpick’s upcoming hotels will open over the next few months: the family-focused Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin - the brand’s seventh property in Thailand; Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis, located on the banks of Lac de Tunis – its third hotel in Tunisia; and Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in Kenya, marking the company’s debut in East Africa with a five-star hotel and conference property.

The remaining eight properties, which will be launched before the end of the year, will see Mövenpick enter four additional new markets, with the contemporary Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru in Maldives introducing 105 units, including 72 over-water villas to the idyllic island destination; Mövenpick Hotel Basra capitalising on one of Iraq’s oil and gas hubs; Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA conveniently located close to Kuala Lumpur International Airport; and Mövenpick Hotel Sylhet in north-east Bangladesh.

In the Middle East, Mövenpick will be opening two hotels in the United Arab Emirates: the Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Downtown Dubai and a Mövenpick hotel in Dubai Media City. The firm will also strengthen its presence in Egypt with the addition of Mövenpick Resort El Ein Bay, its second property in the coastal area of El Sokhna.

In Asia, the hospitality firm will bolster its cluster strategy in Thailand with the opening of Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai.

With a current pipeline of more than 40 properties, Mövenpick will enter several additional new markets over the next few years including Muscat (Oman) and Ras Al Khaimah (United Arab Emirates) in the Middle East and Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Abuja (Nigeria) in Africa, while consolidating its presence in countries with strong development potential.
