Leva Hotels inks deal for two Oman properties

Dubai-based Leva Hotels & Resorts, a dynamic lifestyle hotel brand in the Middle East region, said it has signed management agreements for two new hotels in Muscat, Oman, and a stunning property in Kampala, Uganda, as part of its expansion strategy for GCC, Africa and Europe.
 
Building up on its growth momentum, the brand is aggressively exploring further opportunities in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Tanzania as well as Europe. It currently has an asset under negotiation in Portugal.
 
Founder and CEO JS Anand said: “Despite the challenges, it is important to focus on long-term strategies to proactively target recovery in the hospitality sector. At Leva Hotels & Resorts, we are confident that it is only a matter of time before our industry turns around, and therefore, all of us must continue to work together by prioritising our goals to prepare for a better future. We remain committed to expand our footprint in our target markets offering superior brand standards and exceptional management options to hotel owners with flexible terms tailored for diverse market segments.”
 
Leva Hotels & Resorts is uniquely positioned in the upscale and midscale segments with four complementary and well differentiated brands designed to provide a solid return on investment for owners and greater value to guest. While Leva is specialised in the four-star and above category, Ekono by Leva is a smart and efficient choice in the mid-scale segment.
 
In keeping with Leva Hotel’s corporate social responsibility, Anand shared plans for contributing to community welfare initiatives in Africa.
 
He stated: “We will invest back in the community as well as the development of people who work for us with an aim to improve lives. Our goal is to become the strongest and most preferred employer by supporting critical social causes such as building schools, funding medical requirements, providing humanitarian aid and offering educational scholarships for deserving students.”
 
In addition to its flagship hotel Leva Mazaya Centre, a deluxe four-star hotel located between Al Wasl Road and Sheikh Zayed Road, Leva recently took over the management of two hotels located within walking distance to each other in the Madinat Al Sultan Qaboos district, as well as the unique Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences situated in Muyenga at Tank Hill in Kampala. - TradeArabia News Service
