TOURISM: Dubai-based Leva Hotels plans Zimbabwe expansion with two properties
UAE-based hospitality brand Leva Hotels has announced two tourism development projects in Zimbabwe as part of its expansion drive.
The ambitious projects, scheduled for completion within two years, are a collaborative effort with Troika Design Workshop (TDW), a leading consulting firm specialising in architecture, quantity surveying, and engineering, and Turnbury Property Developers (TPD), an esteemed real estate development company dedicated to community shaping.
While TDW and TPD spearhead the property development, Leva will manage the 120-unit residential complex, Leva Hotel Residences, and a four-star Leva hotel with 180 rooms in the Mount Pleasant suburb.
“We are thrilled to announce our expansion into Zimbabwe, a country with immense potential for the hospitality industry,” said J S Anand, Founder and CEO of LEVA Hotels and Resorts.
“Our two greenfield projects in Harare will offer guests a unique and memorable experience, and we are confident that they will be a valuable addition to the Zimbabwean hospitality landscape.”
He added; “The strategic partnership with TDW and Turnbury aligns seamlessly with Leva’s long-term vision of fostering growth and supporting local businesses and talents within the region.
“This collaboration is characterised by shared values, a commitment to excellence, and a unified vision for sustainable development, serving as the cornerstone for Leva Hotels’ involvement in these greenfield projects.”
Unlike many other African countries, Zimbabwe boasts a world-class tourism infrastructure and has some of the most luxurious hotels and lodges in the Southern African region. Leva Hotels is well-positioned to capitalise on Zimbabwe’s growing tourism demand.
Committed to making hospitality more accessible for budget-conscious travellers through its unique business design.
Leva Hotels is confident that its unique approach to hospitality, which combines affordability, quality, and a focus on local culture, will resonate with travellers from all over the world.
The brand looks forward to playing a pivotal role in the development of Africa’s tourism landscape and making the continent a more desirable tourist destination for everyone, Leva Hotels said.
