The Icon Hotel Group growth strategy projects an achievement of 5000 keys before December 2023. However, it appears that the projection did not anticipate the astounding acceptance and trust currently reposed in Icon Hotel Group by hospitality investors across Africa and beyond. This figure is set to be surpassed based on ongoing negotiations with investors. Currently over 800 keys across medium to upper upscale and luxury hotel projects are set to be commissioned by Q2 in 2020, these will be reinforced by another 700 keys through acquisition and mergers and finally 300 keys will be activated through negotiated takeovers. Details of these activities will be periodically communicated as press releases through our digital platform and email newsletters.

Designs and construction are ongoing for the following projects:

  • Best Western Premier Breeze Hotel Cotonou-Benin
  • Best Western Premier BoduFinolhu Luxury Resort – Maldives
  • Proposed BWP Tumaini Hotel project Nairobi-Kenya
  • Proposed Marriott Protea Hotel Project Thika Road-Nairobi
  • Proposed Icon Premier Congo Brazzaville
  • Proposed Icon Premier Kinshasa DRC
  • Proposed Icon premier Burkina Faso

Icon Premier is Icon Hotel Group’s Premium hospitality brand that delivers a refreshingly unique approach to provision of bespoke African hospitality.

It is purposed to drive the ambitious growth of the hospitality industry in the continent going forward into the future.
