Organic expansion drives Mövenpick growth

New hotels announced in intriguing destinations

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is expanding its “organic growth” in some intriguing destinations. It has announced new hotels in Turkey, Mongolia, Morocco, Pakistan and a new “hotel within a hotel” in Egypt.

In Pakistan, the Swiss company has taken over a five-star landmark hotel from Sheraton. The 407-room Mövenpick Hotel Karachi is its first property in Pakistan. In Morocco, the company will open two properties – in Casablanca and Marrakech – in addition to one it already operates in Tangier, in Morocco.

In mid-2014, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will open its fourth hotel in Turkey, the Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul Golden Horn, while in Mongolia it will manage a new hotel in the capital, the Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Ulaanbaatar, from 2018.

In Egypt, the company has just opened a new “hotel within a hotel” at Mövenpick Hotel Cairo Pyramids, close to the Pyramid views of Giza. The new 144-room extension is being marketed as a contemporary alternative to the existing garden village bungalow resort there. All new rooms have terraces, some with pyramid views, and there’s a new restaurant, lounge and outdoor pool bar.
