Namibia: Arandis to Boost Hotel Next Year

Construction for a N$30-million hotel in Arandis in the Erongo Region has started.

Construction work on the hotel, branded a "first-of-its-kind" development for Arandis, is set to be completed in November 2013.

Acting chief executive officer (CEO) of the Arandis Municipality, Colin Namene, told Nampa the Arandis Hotel will be a 29-bed facility with "first class" conference facilities.

He said the hotel, which is being constructed by Namplus Hospitality, will among others provide accommodation for professionals rendering their services to nearby mines, contractors and tourists visiting the Erongo Region.

"Arandis is only 50 kilometres away from the tourist town, Swakopmund, and therefore ideal for holidaymakers who cannot find accommodation in Swakopmund, especially during the festive season," Namene said.

The hotel will offer three different categories of accommodation, including three executive suites.

"Other amenities will include a generous-sized swimming pool, fitness facilities and an impressive range of venues for any occasion, from board meetings to large conferences and social gatherings," he said.

He also mentioned that the exterior design of the hotel will blend in with the "desert-like" surroundings of Arandis.
