Opening in early 2021, the 462-key hotel will be located in Diamniadio – a new dynamic city developed by the Senegal government, close to Dakar’s new Blaise Diagne International Airport, as well as the expanding seaport of Bargny.
The signing marks the launch of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in Senegal and strengthens the brand’s footprint in Western Africa. The hotel will benefit from a prime location in a mixed-used development with financial, residential, recreational and conference districts, as well as a university, state ministries and a 50-hectare industrial park.
Mövenpick Hotel Dakar will be a dining destination in its own right, offering guests and local residents the choice of 11 venues including three specialty restaurants, one ‘Panoramic’ restaurant and bar and an all-day dining outlet, among others. With Dakar witnessing a significant surge in meetings and events business, the modern urban resort will feature a conference centre with 12 meeting rooms, while leisure travellers, including families, will enjoy facilities such as two swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, a kids club and a spa.
