Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Signs New Property in the City of Gardens
This will be the firm's third project in Lahore Pakistan in two years as they continue with the agreement to manage Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments. This new hotel, set to be open in 2021, is anticipated to be the tallest building set in the high-profile Finance and Trade Centre project in Johar Town.
“Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments Lahore will be perfectly positioned to capitalise on the significant resident and visiting population this new commercial hub will attract,” said Mian Ahmad Fazal, Executive Director of Orient Group of Companies.
“We are pleased to be able to support the government’s ambitions for infrastructure development and look forward to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts setting new hospitality standards in Lahore, as it has in other key cities across the region.”
This new hotel will feature 260 rooms and 50 serviced apartments; 5 restaurants and lounges; 1,500 square meters of meeting and event space, including a large ballroom; a 700-square-metre spa and fitness area; and a kids’ club and business centre.
The hotel brand already operates the 407-room Mövenpick Hotel Karachi and is scheduled to open the 361-key Mövenpick Hotel Centaurus Islamabad in 2018.
“Signing our third property in Pakistan marks yet another milestone in our expansion strategy, which focusses on operating properties in key gateway cities across the Middle East and Asia regions,” said Andrew Langdon, Chief Development Officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
“Pakistan is undergoing rapid development and we are actively seeking opportunities to further expand our footprint in a country that offers strong growth potential.”
Known as the ‘city of gardens’, Lahore is the Punjab province’s capital and its commercial and banking centre.
