Dubai-based hotel management company Aleph Hospitality has signed a management agreement to operate two boutique resorts — the Moja Tuu and Hakuna Majiwe — in Zanzibar.
The contracts, scheduled to take effect in October, mark Aleph Hospitality’s continued expansion in Africa, with its portfolio now stretching across five countries on the continent.
Speaking at the African Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), Bani Haddad, founder and managing director of Aleph Hospitality, commented: “Our entry into the Tanzanian market solidifies the company’s already-rapid African expansion, coming just days after the signing of an agreement for the first Marriott International property in Kisumu, Kenya.
“In addition to this growth of our branded hotel portfolio, we are thrilled to be adding two more independent hotels to our fold and providing our in-depth knowledge of international best practices and operating standards to unlock the true potential of these unique beachfront properties. We have proven highly successful at turning around existing operations and look forward to driving maximum returns for the hotels’ owner.”
Moja Tuu is a 35-key upper upscale beach resort, including 10 luxury beachfront villas, each with a private infinity pool. The midscale Hakuna Majiwe in Paje is a 21-room hideaway, including 16 beach rooms and five garden rooms.
Ideally positioned for international leisure travellers, including honeymooners and groups of family and friends, the secluded resort, surrounded by tropical forest, features three restaurants, private beach and swimming pool.
