A Dubai hotel chain has signed a contract to manage the Red Court hotels, among them Boma Inn in Eldoret.
Aleph Hospitality will be managing Boma Inn Eldoret as well as Boma Inn Nairobi and Boma Nairobi. All three are part of the Red Court Hotels.
Aleph hospitality has taken up the challenge of steering the chain of hotels back to profitability.
The company has promised to support the Kenya Red Cross financially, committing to give back a portion of their expected income from the ho
tels to support the Red Cross projects in Kenya.
According to Aleph Hospitality Managing Director Bani Haddad, the company sees the step as only a step in their plan to expand operations in Kenya.
Said Bani Haddad:“We’re delighted to take over the management of the three Boma hotels in a deal that further strengthens our presence in Kenya. We’re committed to working with the owners to turn around the fortunes of these wonderful hotels and proud to support local humanitarian projects being run by the owner through the Kenya Red Cross”.
Former Red Cross Secretary General and Chairman of the Red Court Hotel Dr. Abbas Gullet said he was thrilled with the development:“We’re thrilled to be working with a professional hotel management company that understands both the global hotel business and our local hospitality market. All profits from Boma Nairobi, Boma Inn Nairobi and Boma Inn Eldoret fund the Kenya Red Cross Society and we’re confident that together we can re-establish successful hotel businesses that will help support this great cause”.
The Boma Inn Eldoret will be the first property in Kenya’s Rift Valley region to be managed by Alegh Hospitality. Located 15 kilometers from Eldoret International Airport, Boma Inn Eldoret has 68 rooms, a swimming pool, gym, conference facilities, as well as three restaurants.
Aleph Hospitality is managing other properties in Kenya, including Best Western Plus in Nairobi, Westlands, Protea in Kisumu, and a yet to be identified property in Mombasa.
Aleph Hospitality wants to increase its presence to 50 hotels in the EMEA region by 2025. The outfit manages hotels as a white label outfit or as part of a franchise.
