BON Hotels have extended their South African footprint into Kwazulu Natal with the takeover of the well-known 64 on Gordon Hotel. The 35 – roomed boutique hotel, which is located in the rejuvenated Morningside suburb of Durban, will be flying the BON Hotels flag as of 1 June 2018.
An African awakening in the hotel development arena might be an understatement as hotel projects, contracts and deals are concluded at a rapid pace in many well-disposed countries across the continent. Countries like Nigeria, DRC and Angola are entering the radar of major hotel investment, whilst destinations such as Tanzania, Namibia, Zambia and South Africa still enjoy their place in the sun.
BON Hotels’ growth in Nigeria has been prodigious and continues to flourish with the more recent acquisitions of 11 additional hotels in the region bringing their portfolio in West Africa up to 25 hotels across 14 cities and in so doing becoming West Africa and Nigeria’s largest and fastest growing hotel group. This has been a conscious thought process with the board carefully and thoughtfully selecting and identifying properties in the region that will ultimately create mega tourism circuits, boost tourism and link important centres across the region.
