BON Hotels’ growth in Nigeria has been prodigious and continues to flourish with the more recent acquisitions of 11 additional hotels in the region bringing their portfolio in West Africa up to 25 hotels across 14 cities and in so doing becoming West Africa and Nigeria’s largest and fastest growing hotel group.
This has been a conscious thought process with the board carefully and thoughtfully selecting and identifying properties in the region that will ultimately create mega tourism circuits, boost tourism and link important centres across the region.
With 14 new hotel projects underway and a further 11 being signed, the Group is on track to tying up the trade routes linking Nigeria, making life a whole lot easier for commuters both local and from abroad who are currently having to travel back and forth over long distances to get their business done.
The group is focusing on building a triangular city circuit incorporating trade, city and northern routes that will effectively tie up the trade routes for West Africa running through Nigeria, servicing over 200 million commuters and thereby improving tourism, the economy and the hospitality industry.
The circuits include, from airport to airport connecting important centres across the region: TRADE ROUTE: Owerri-Onitsha-Asaba-Awka-Enugu; CITY ROUTE: Asaba-Awka-Enugu; NORTHERN ROUTE: Abuja-Kano-Kaduna-Zaria-Yola.
