New Protea Hotel to be built in Hoima, Uganda
Protea Hotels has just signed an agreement for the construction of another hotel in Uganda, bringing to four the number of properties in the country.
The 80-room hotel will have six conference facilities capable of hosting 300 delegates, two restaurants, a swimming pool, health club with gym, sauna and stream room, and disabled access to the property.
Stuart Cook, Managing Director of Protea Hotels Uganda, said Protea Hotel Kampala and Protea Hotel Entebbe were already open, while Protea Hotel Mbale joined the portfolio on July 1.
“Protea Hotels is rapidly expanding in Uganda. This process is largely being driven by corporate travel because there is a lot of economic growth within the country. There are four Protea Hotels now, but I certainly don’t expect this to be the last expansion announcement in the medium term,” Cook said.
Protea Hospitality Group CEO Arthur Gillis said Uganda was an exciting developing nation and one where the company hoped to expand substantially in the next decade.
“The Protea Hospitality Group also expects to announce its presence in another African country soon.
