Eurostars Hotel Company, the hotel division of Spain’s Grupo Hotusa, is starting in Africa with the opening of its first hotel in Morocco, the Eurostars Sidi Maarouf 4*. With this latest addition, the company has now reached 158 hotels in 16 countries in three continents and has opened the door to a destination where it intends to expand its portfolio in the coming months.
The president of the Grupo Hotusa, Amancio López Seijas says that “having a hotel in Africa was an objective we have had for a long time; we are sure that this will be the first of many. We have a lot of expectations in Morocco, a destination that has a great potential for growth in the urban segment”.
The Eurostars Sidi Maarouf 4* is a new-build modern hotel, located in the La Colline district in the south of Casablanca. It stands out for the elegance and comfort of its facilities, perfect both for pleasure trips and for business trips or small business meetings. The hotel has a multi-purpose hall and two event halls with natural light, both perfect for holding company meetings. The rest of its facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium, massage room and yoga room.
The Spanish company has another project on course in Casablanca and is willing to analyse opportunities in Morocco or other African countries, by means of lease contracts, management contracts with purchase of the building or other mixed options, such as franchise. According to Amancio López, “we believe that our know-how, based on over 20 years’ experience running hotels, can be perfectly replicated in several African destinations.”
