Hilton Worldwide to Build Africa's First Modular Hotel

Hilton Worldwide has marked this year’s African Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF) with the announcement of three new properties and extensions in three African countries. Among the new hotels is Africa’s first modular build hotel, the 280 guest-room Hilton Garden Inn in the Ghanaian capital of Accra, a concept that Hilton first premiered in 2014 through a partnership with CIMC Modular Building Systems.

Other deals include Africa’s tallest hotel in Nairobi. Standing 330m high, Hilton Nairobi Upper Hill is due to open in 2020, as a 255 guest-room and suite hotel in Kenya’s capital. It will feature poolside bar, specialty smokehouse and grill restaurant and a boutique rooftop bar.

Finally, Hilton will add extra 76 guest rooms to its previously announced Curio, The Legend, Lagos Airport, bringing the room count to 130. The hotel is due to open in 2017. Modular construction is an innovative solution that can be used to drive hotel development, offering numerous benefits including faster development, streamlined design and cost efficiency.

The process involves assembling portions of the hotel including guest rooms and hallways in China, before transporting them to the final site for completion, significantly reducing construction time.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
