Sofitel Luxury Hotels has opened the Sofitel Abidjan Htel Ivoire in West Africa.

Located in the chic Cocody district, Sofitel Abidjan Htel Ivoire overlooks the Ebrie lagoon and the Plateau.

This prestigious Ivory Coast property was built by architect Moshe Mayer in 1963, and was revamped in 2011. Sofitel signed a management contract for the property in July 2012 and 18 months later, following a transitional period of adaptation to bring the hotel in line with brand standards, the Sofitel Htel Ivoire has now opened.

Sofitel Abidjan Htel Ivoire is at the crossroad of different cultures, and reflects the city in which it is located: oriented toward the future, where modernity is in harmony with the beauty of the surrounding nature, said Jean-Jacques Dessors, COO Mediterranean, Middle East, Africa. This stunning hotel, a tribute to Africa, has been designed to reflect this unique experience, offering a blend of French luxury with Ivory Coast heritage.

Today, the Sofitel Abidjan Htel Ivoire offers 209 guestrooms, including two presidential suites and 40 junior suites.

Sofitel Abidjan Htel Ivoire features two restaurants. The panoramic Toit dAbidjan is located on the 23rd floor and offers a 180 view of Abidjan and the Ebrie Lagoon. At La Gourmandise, the poetry of Africa meets the flavors of French cuisine, at the heart of the hotel.

The hotel also has four modern conference rooms fitted with high-tech audiovisual equipment and the nearby Abidjan Conference Center hosts a range of events and offers a range of high-quality services to ensure successful meetings as well as an auditorium seating 1,650 people.

Starting in early 2015, a second wave of renovations is scheduled to create 217 guestrooms, including 84 suites and 31 service apartments, a Millsime Club, a 1,200 m2 So SPA, two restaurants and a lounge bar, a cinema, nine meeting rooms, a business center and ten boutiques, as well as a casino.
