Dubai-based independent hotel management company Aleph Hospitality has opened its 101-key Best Western Plus Westlands hotel in Nairobi, marking the brand’s debut in Kenya.

Aleph Hospitality has already signed management contracts for three other hotels in the country, which are currently under development, including the Protea Hotel by Marriott in Kisumu; an airport hotel in Nairobi; and a property in the coastal resort of Mombasa.

The Best Western Plus Westlands hotel is located in the heart of Nairobi’s social and entertainment hub, the Westlands district, which is home to shops, restaurants, and corporate headquarters.

The purpose-built hotel features 101 air-conditioned guest rooms, including spacious Junior Suites, with separate living rooms and kitchenettes, as well as a Penthouse Suite with a private outdoor hot tub.

The hotel offers free WiFi, a dedicated meetings floor, a gym, and two food and beverage outlets.

Aleph Hospitality, which has earmarked a pipeline of 35 hotels in the Middle East and Africa by 2025, manages hotels directly for owners, either on a franchise basis for branded properties or as a white label operator for independently-branded hotels.

The company operates four hotels in Africa, with six new openings already slated for 2020.

Commenting on its foray into Kenya, managing director of Aleph Hospitality, Bani Haddad, said: “Kenya is a popular destination in the heart of the region and its travel and tourism industry grew 5.6% in 2018, exceeding global and regional levels, according to the WTTC. We are proud to be part of this growth and to support the economy with more than 80 new jobs and the generation of additional international visitors that Best Western Plus Westlands will bring.”
