Coral Hotels & Resorts has signed a management agreement with Sudanese Kuwaiti Hotels Co. Ltd. for two properties in Sudan.

Both hotels are already operational and occupy prime locations in Sudans capital Khartoum and the strategic town of Port Sudan. Coral Khartoum features 285 rooms and offers its guest all 5-star facilities including fabulous dining outlets and leisure options. Equally well-equipped to meet the needs of global travellers is Coral Port Sudan boasting 114 rooms.

Michel Noblet, CEO, HMH Hospitality Management Holdings, said, Sudan holds great promise for our industry. The number of tourists arriving in Sudan increased from 52,000 in 2002 to 70,100 in 2007 and the figure is on the rise. This has naturally boosted the demand for high quality hotel accommodations across the country. Both Coral Khartoum and Coral Port Sudan are superbly located and bear all the characteristics that make our brand so attractive to travellers.

Sudan has vast resources and is among the worlds fastest growing oil producers producing about 360,000 b/d. An oil-fuelled construction boom is giving its key cities an ever shinier veneer. This has resulted in increasing business opportunities and a significant growth in international and regional visitors.

In order to improve its infrastructure, Sudan is engaged in many projects aimed at renovating existing airports and developing new airports. This includes the redevelopment of Khartoum Airport, rehabilitating Malakal Airport, developing Abu Gibieha Airport in Kordofan State, and redeveloping Port Sudan Airport and Juba Airport. The government aims to make Juba Airport a major domestic and international airport. These plans go hand in hand with the countrys efforts to develop tourism. The international airport at Khartoum is currently served by 16 airlines.
