Updated: Aug 31, 2018
Worldwide known Hotel operator Hilton is planning to open to hotels in Cape Verde. One is the capital city Praia and one in island Boa Vista near Santa Monica Beach.
Both projects are anticipated to be complete in 2019. However the Hilton Praia the business type hotel with 200 rooms is set to opened sooner than Hilton Boa Vista due to earlier planning.
Hilton Praia is located on the Island of Santiago in Cape Verde’s capital city, Praia. This is where all the main Government offices are located. As a successful emerging economy and a democratic nation, Cape Verde plays host to a variety of dignitaries, foreign ministers, leaders and VIP guests. Therefore, it requires high quality business accommodation and we are delivering a Hilton hotel to meet this demand.
The Hilton Praia project will create a luxurious business hotel of 201 guest rooms and suites across 15 floors along with extensive meeting and event facilities. Built near the city’s diplomatic quarters, governmental institutions, commercial, finance and residential areas, the new Hilton Hotel will be both a relaxing and convenient place for all visitor types. Nelson Mandela International Airport (RAI) and the Port of Praia, one of the principal ports of Cape Verde, will be located just six kilometres from Hilton Praia.
This development represents first commercial hotel targeting visitors to the capital. Full planning was completed and groundbreaking took place on 12 November 2015, with opening anticipated in 2019 at an expected construction of €41 million.
The Developer has signed a 20-year management agreement with Hilton Worldwide to manage the hotel, once operational.
