New Delhi: Sarovar Hotels and Resorts has unveiled its plan to open a hotel in Hargeisa, the capital city of Somaliland.
Ajay K Bakaya, Managing Director, Sarovar Hotels Pvt. Ltd. says, “In order to maximize further growth opportunities in Africa, we are delighted to announce another milestone in Sarovar’s expansion plan. This hotel is located in one of the prime locations of Somaliland close to the getaway port of Berbera and has good connectivity from Hargeisa Egal International Airport as well for travellers to the country. Having successfully operated hotels in other countries of Africa, we now look forward to providing our signature hospitality in this growing country as well”.
Owned by Upper Hill Hotel, Sarovar Premiere Hargeisa upon completion in 2020 will have a total of 123 rooms and suites; conference and meeting rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and a swimming pool.
Somaliland is a growing economy in East Africa. As a destination, it has much to offer for business and leisure travellers alike. Somaliland’s Port of Berbera is a convenient distance from the hotel. There are plans for the port, the country’s commercial hub, to be upgraded. For history buffs, there are cave paintings and rock art, the most notable being the Laas Geel caves. For beach lovers, Berbera, an exotic coastal deserted beach is where the amazing warm waters of the Gulf of Aden stand still. The trekker and the nature traveller will have access to changing topographies from mountains to waterfalls and plateaus.
