Le Méridien to Debut in Zanzibar in 2025

Marriott International is set to expand its portfolio with the addition of Le Méridien Zanzibar Resort in 2025, following a signed agreement with Morogoro Mishama Company.

This new resort is aimed at meeting the increasing demand for premium hospitality in Tanzania, featuring 75 guestrooms and offering guests the opportunity to immerse in the local culture, coordinates, and cuisine.

“Zanzibar continues to grow as a sought-after leisure destination and we are committed to continuing to support the overall growth of the tourism sector in Tanzania,” said Karim Cheltout, Regional Vice President – Development, Africa, Marriott International.

“Le Méridien’s contemporary design, captivating spaces and chic, signature programming will be an ideal fit for the island, and we look forward to working with Morogoro Mishama Company to open this project by the end of the year.”

Le Méridien Zanzibar Resort is planned to have 75 contemporary guest rooms and villas, providing guests with stunning views of the Indian Ocean and access to a range of facilities. These include a specialty restaurant, an open-air bar, and recreational amenities like a fitness center, swimming pool, spa, kids club, and lagoon, all designed to offer an upscale experience inspired by Le Méridien’s European heritage.

Located in Bwejuu on Zanzibar’s Eastern coast, the resort aims to invite guests to “Savour the Good Life,” embodying the essence of Le Méridien’s signature experiences and programming. This project marks the second collaboration between Marriott International and Morogoro Mishama Company in the region.

“We are thrilled to announce our second collaboration with Marriott International in the region by bringing Le Méridien Zanzibar Resort to fruition. This milestone underscores our continued commitment to enhancing Tanzania’s hospitality landscape and reinforcing Zanzibar’s appeal as a premier leisure destination to visitors across the world,” said Rishen Patel, Managing Director, Morogoro Mishama Company.

Morogoro Mishama Company, a part of Delaware Investment Limited, specializes in the development of luxury hotels across the African continent.

Morogoro Mishama Company and Marriott International will collaborate with ALEPH Hospitality, known for its expertise in managing upscale accommodations across diverse destinations, as the third-party operator for the franchised property.

“We are very excited to be entrusted with the operations of Le Méridien Zanzibar Resort,” said Bani Haddad, Founder and Managing Director of Aleph Hospitality.

“This stunning, modern resort will be an incredible addition to the hospitality offering in Zanzibar, which has seen a surge in growth with international tourism arrivals surpassing a record one million mark just last month.”
