Dubai-based hotel management company Aleph Hospitality (AH) has entered the Tanzanian market with the signing of a management agreement to operate two boutique resorts, the Moja Tuu and Hakuna Majiwe, in Zanzibar, effective next month.
Bani Haddad, Founder and Managing Director of Aleph Hospitality, said the agreement marks the hotel management company’s continued expansion in Africa: “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. 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.”
Amit B. Ladwa, owner of both Tanzanian hotels, said AH will bring world-class operational expertise and extensive regional knowledge to their assets.
The Moja Tuu is a 35-room upscale beach resort, including 10 luxury beachfront villas, each with a private infinity pool. It is located in Kiwengwa, on the north east coast of Zanzibar and an hour drive from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport. It is ideally positioned for international leisure travelers, including honeymooners and groups of family and friends. It’s surrounded by tropical forest, features three restaurants, a private beach and swimming pool.
In Paje, on the southeast coast of Zanzibar is the 21-room resort, Hakuna Majiwe. It has 16 beach rooms and five garden rooms, features an all-day dining restaurant and swimming pool, and is located 75 minutes away from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport by car.
