Dubai-based LEVA Hotels & Resorts has entered into a management agreement with Prism Construction Company to operate the Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences in Uganda.
Situated in Muyenga at Tank Hill in Kampala overlooking the famous Lake Victoria, the hotel is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2020 and features 56 rooms, a statement said.
Kennedy Losuk Loluke, owner and CEO of Prism Construction Company, said: “LEVA Hotels & Resorts is a distinctive brand and we are very pleased to be the first one to welcome it to Uganda. We are confident under the management of LEVA, Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences will continue to excel achieving greater success.”
The Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences offers unrivalled views of Lake Victoria which is the largest lake in Africa and the second largest freshwater lake in the world.
JS Anand, founder and CEO of LEVA Hotels & Resorts, said: “Uganda is a remarkable destination... Africa is one of the key growth markets for us and we are thrilled to debut in the continent with an exceptional property like Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences.”
The Emin Pasha Lake View Hotel Residences is Kampala’s first boutique hotel and features an outdoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room, gym, spa, all-day-dining restaurant, rooftop restaurant and meeting rooms.
