New hotel and office development to open in November 2015

A new hotel and office development, known as the Rani Towers, will open for business in Maputo in November, according to the managing director of the Dubai-based Rani Investment, Salim Bitar.

It cost US$206 million to build the Rani Towers, and the adjacent, already functioning Radisson Blu Hotel, all located on the Maputo coastal road. The project is the fruit of cooperation between Rani Investment and the Minor Hotel Group, which is headquartered in Bangkok.

One of the towers has 21 floors reserved for apartments, while the other has 17 floors of office space covering 22,000 square metres. There will be 181 fully furnished apartments.

The facilities include two swimming pools, a shopping area, a conference hall with space for over 450 participants, a gymnasium, lounges and restaurants,

Rani has been operating in Mozambique for 15 years, and its other properties include the Pemba Beach Hotel in the northern province of Cabo Delgado, and luxury island hotels in the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos.
