Construction has begun on the 147-room City Lodge Hotel Dar es Salaam, with the hotel expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2017.
In March the hotel group announced that construction was delayed due to outstanding regulatory approvals.
City Lodge Hotel Dar es Salaam will be the 59th hotel in the City Lodge Hotel Group and its fifth hotel outside South Africa.
Clifford Ross, CEO of the City Lodge Hotel Group, said good progress was being made with the development of City Lodge Hotel Two Rivers in Nairobi, with the building around 25% complete. This hotel is on track to open to guests in the second quarter of 2017.
He said construction of the 151-room Town Lodge Windhoek in Namibia’s capital was likely to begin in June. Meanwhile, remaining regulatory approvals are being sought for the development of the 148-room City Lodge Hotel Maputo in Mozambique. The group hopes to be able to open this hotel in the third or fourth quarter of 2017.
