Sarovar Hotels has entered into the Republic of South Sudan by taking over management of The Panorama hotel. The hotel will be rebranded as The Panorama Sarovar Portico, Juba.
The group is also planning to operate 10 hotels in Africa in the next five years.
Ajay K Bakaya, executive director of Sarovar Hotels, said, “We are very excited to be setting our footprints to another new destination in the African region. We see immense growth potential in this market with high demand and good occupancies in most hotels.”
The Panaroma Sarovar Portico will offer 73 rooms and suites equipped with modern amenities. The dining options include restaurant serving both local and international cuisine and a bar. Additional block of suites, conference and banqueting facilities will soon be added to the hotel. The tourist attractions near the hotel include All Saints Cathedral and Bahr El Jebel Safaris.
The new venture is Sarovar Hotels’ fourth operational hotel in Africa. The group already manages The Heron Portico in Nairobi, The New Africa Hotel in Dar-Es-Salaam – Tanzania and The Zehneria Portico in Nairobi.
