Accor signs in Africa


Accor has signed the first of three properties in Djibouti, partnering with Kamaj investment to open Pullman living, Novotel & Mgallery properties in Djibouty City.

Accor plans to open the first Pullman Living project in 2023, a new=build project featuring 131 keys across one, two and three bedroom apartments.

“We couldn’t think of a better partner than Accor to help us renovate and manage the two properties and the extended stay project in Djibouti City”, said Houssein Mahamdoud Robleh, founder of Kamaj Investments. We understand there is an enormous need for new hotel investment in Djibouti and Accor’s knowledge and expertise as a global hospitality leader will help us achieve our objectives.”

“This is a development we are very excited about as Djibouti is an attractive destination for business travellers and has a central geostrategic location due to its port”, said Mark Willis CEO of Accor Middle East and Africa. “This will be a first step for us in Djibouti and we look forward to being part of the country’s overall development”.

He added: “The opening of these three properties promises to revolutionise the hospitality scene of the country. As of today, there are only two branded hotels in Djibouti and Accor will be introducing three new brands to the country.  The strategic location of the properties near the Heron District and CBD, and natural strategic position offered by the country combined with the demand for premium and mid-eco accommodation should definitely impact the travel flows inside out the country.”
