Kolwezi Congo Hyatt Hotel
Accor has announced the signing of an agreement to build a new hotel in Congo at the Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), which will take place in Ethiopia during the week of 23-25 September. Capitalizing on the growing demand for modern, first-class hotel concepts that meet the needs of hotels in Africa's most populous country, the agreement introduces the world's largest hotel chain, Accor Hotels & Resorts, and is the country's first hotel project. Perhaps the most significant part of the agreement is the way it familiarises one of Africa's largest countries with one of its most innovative hotel brands.
For decades, the Congolese have been plagued by a picture of war and poverty: despite its wealth in natural resources, corruption, mismanagement and conflict have impoverished the Franco-French country. Indeed, the Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a population of less than 1.5 million people. Growth has stalled in a country that once thrived on the back of oil, gold, diamonds, and oil - rich mineral resources.
It currently serves an ever-growing foreign and international community that works and does business in the region. This trio of hotels are expected to quickly make their mark on the local economy and socialize in their respective cities. They currently host more than 2,000 visitors a day and are expected to quickly make their mark on the country's tourism industry and the international tourism market.
Kolwezi and its mineral centre, the Democratic Republic of Congo, will grow significantly over the next three decades. It has an estimated $24 trillion in untapped mineral reserves and hosts some of the largest gold, silver, copper and copper ore deposits in the world.
More than 3,942 keys were shipped to the region from countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo. More than 2,500 kilometers of pipeline from the country, including countries such as the United States and Canada, to the Congo. More than 1.5 million kilometers and pipelines to as far away regions as South Korea, China, Japan, India and Australia.
The capital Kinshasa is the largest city of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the second largest in Africa. It is strategically located near the borders with South Africa, the United States, South Korea, China, Japan, India and Australia.
The main streets of the city are close to the city centre, and the hotel is located in the heart of Kinshasa, just a few kilometres from the main road. The hotel has a restaurant, bar and hair salon, hotel rooms and a fitness center and a wellness center.
The 55-room hotel, which is due to open in April next year, is the first of its kind in the Democratic Republic of Congo's Lualaba province. Accor already operates hotels in Kinshasa, Goma, Kivu, Mombasa and Kigali, as well as a number of other hotels and resorts in South Africa and the United States. It will also open its first hotel in Rwanda, the country's second largest city, on the outskirts of Kibale.
To get a better idea of what the new hotel is all about, it would be useful to find out more about where it is located. BON Hotels has hotels in major districts such as Kinshasa and Lubumbashi, as well as in Kibale, Goma, Kivu, Mombasa and Kigali.
