Movenpick Hotels and Resorts to add two new Morocco hotels to their portfolio

As part of its organic expansion, Movenpick Hotels and Resorts has announced that it will be opening new properties in Turkey, Morocco, Mongolia and Egypt, as well as the take-over of a hotel in Pakistan.

The Swiss luxury hotel hospitality company already has a property in Tangier in Morocco but it is planning to open a further two hotels in the country's popular tourists destinations, Casablanca and Marrakech.

This summer, Movenpick Hotels and Resorts will take over the Hotel Casablanca Plaza in the "Wall Street" business district close to the Medina and will rebrand it as the Movenpick Hotel Casablanca. The hotel has 184 guest rooms and suites over 16 floors and facilities including a rooftop swimming pool, three gourmet restaurants, a luxury spa and six meeting rooms.

The third Morocco hotel will be opened by the end of this year and will be located on the Avenue Mohammed V in the Hivernage District of Morocco's capital, Marrakech.

Currently under construction, the hotel will have 374 guest rooms and suites and upscale facilities including a Hard Rock Cafe, the largest swimming pool in Marrakech, a branded Buddha Bar, Kidzo entertainment zone, an ice-skating rink, extensive conference and meeting space, and an adjacent 88-outlet upscale shopping mall.

Morocco is a country in North Africa located south of Spain with a coastline spreading across both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. While enjoying holidays in Morocco, tourists can explore the medieval city of Fez; the movie-famous city of Casablanca that is home to Morocco's largest mosque, The King Hassan II; and the traditional souks, spice markets and historical ruins in Marrakech.

Movenpick Hotels and Resorts has 78 properties in more than 24 countries across the world, with 30 more hotels planned or under construction. These include the Movenpick Hotel Istanbul Golden Horn in Turkey which will open this summer; Movenpick Hotel and Residences Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia in 2018; Movenpick Hotel Karachi in Pakistan later this year; and a "hotel within a hotel" at the Movenpick Hotel Cairo Pyramids in Egypt.
