Local hospitality group PrideInn has signed an agreement to manage the third hotel belonging to Azure Hospitality Group at the Signature Mall along the Mombasa highway named PrideInn Plaza.
PrideInn Plaza boasts 64 spacious and tastefully designed luxury rooms and suites. It also includes nine conference halls that can host hundreds of business executives at a go.
The hotel’s facilities and amenities include high-speed Wi-Fi, a multi-cuisine restaurant, a lounge, a sky view bar, and round-the-clock room services.
According to The Group’s Founder and Managing Director, Hasnain Noorani, the launch of the establishment would primarily fill the persistent gap in the meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) in Machakos and Nairobi counties.
“Under the proposal, PrideInn comes in as a management company to operate the hotel on your behalf using our own company. It’s very similar to a lease model except that the monthly lease amounts vary based on the percentage of total top-line revenue generated by the hotel determined using the Global hotel software,” said Hasnain Noorani, PrideInn’s founder, and managing director.
“With the ongoing recovery of the Kenyan economy, local and international companies have revived conferences. That is where we come in. PrideInn Plaza is strategically located to host conferences from any part of the country. The hotel has a conference capacity of more than 2,000 business executives,” Noorani said.
PrideInn Plaza becomes the eighth hospitality establishment under the PrideInn badge. Others are the group’s flagship PrideInn Paradise Beach Resort and Spa in Shanzu, Mombasa, PrideInn Flamingo Beach Resort also in Shanzu, Mombasa, PrideInn Mombasa City, PrideInn Nyali, PrideInn Diani, and PrideInn Azure in Nairobi and the newly opened PrideInn Mara Camp in Narok County.
Kenya’s hospitality sector continues to record expansion activities as a result of increasing activities such as tourism, conferences, sports, and leisure activities.
In turn, this has led to an improvement in the overall performance of the sector, evidenced by the full operation of hotels and an average bed occupancy in the month of May at 55.0%, 4.0% points higher than 51.0% recorded in the month of April 2022, according to the Monetary Policy Committee Hotels Survey-May 2022.
