INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL & CASINO
Luanda, Angola

Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), the world's largest Hotel (by number of rooms) is investing in hotel properties in Luanda and Space Group of Korea was chosen to be the project architect.

The 25-storey hotel covering a total floor area of 53,128.3 sq. m. caters 389 guest rooms. This multi-faceted glass cladded building will surely be a main attraction, for it will glitter at daytime and will illuminate during nightime, emanating the character of a diamond.

Do you happen to have any faint idea if it will ever open its door to clients? This is going on for 10 years now, correct me, if I am wrong...

Your country totally lacks any of the big international hotel brands. Quite uncommon for a big mineral rich country.

A Sheraton was set to open in the mid 1970s which was u/c but then the war came and communism did the rest...the tower was half finished & was abandoned. Hence, it smouldered away in the decades that followed, being taken up by squatters.

Then there is the Intercontinental project in times of peace and a return to capitalism...but it is moving at a snail´s pace.

There should have been a Hilton Hotel (a fancy tower, I can still remember), but it remained on the drawing boards as the company went bust.


And what has happened to the Radisson Blu?:dunno:

All due to a collapse of the oil price? I don´t quite understand all the fuss surrounding the collapse of the oil price. The oil price currently hovers around 40-50 USD. Honestly said, this is not too bad. I am old enough to remember a time when the oil price cracked the 40 dollar mark. BBC and the like talked about another oil boom era as countries were awash with petrodollars. This was around the turn of the century. (year: 2002/03). Now an oil price in the range of of 40 to 50 dollars is considered to be a serious blow, making a country plunge into a severe economic crisis? :weird:

The crisis is more political than economic. There is no transparency in our government. Plus, they wanna be part of every single major business. That's why big brands (Hilton, Intercontinental, Hard Rock, Mac Donald's, Radisson, Louis Vuitton, etc.) keep avoiding this country. :eek:hno:

Matt, Sky's 1000 percent correct. The "crisis" in Angola has nothing to do with oil. It's based on pure and evil African greed and complete selfishness on the part of Mr. P. and his family and henchmen. In fact, if you remember, when the oil price started plummeting, the so-called crisis started within 6 months. That was economically impossible within any normal context.

Ednilson, a lei e uma coisa. Na pratica e tenho bastante experiencia nisso, nas UTAIPs dos varios ministerios, so pedem gasosa e mais gasosa. Nos ultimos tempos, como sabem que o executivo vai mudar, ja nem gasosa e. Querem participaçoes nas empresas. Uma autentica pouca vergonha e como sempre, todos sabem e ninguem toma medidas.

Nao estou a ver o 23 de agosta a chegar, mesmo sabendo que o resultado ja foi manipulado, mais vai ser o inicio duma mudança profunda em Angola. Haja paz!

Achas mesmo que o 23 de agosto vai ser ponto de partida para alguma mudança em Angola? Sou pobre por isto não arrisco a apostar contigo, meu caro, não com medo de perder mas por questão de jogar no seguro.

As obras do Hotel Intercontinental, situado no Eixo Viário, foram retomadas após dois anos de interrupção, anunciou a Sonangol, que prevê transformar o espaço numa "unidade de referência incontornável". O investimento consta do último Relatório e Contas com um montante de mais de 74 mil milhões de Kwanzas.

"O Conselho de Administração emitiu orientações específicas, visando o termo dos trabalhos e traçou linhas que passam pela identificação dos melhores mecanismos para a sua rentabilização, focando a necessidade de se estabelecerem parcerias que permitam fazer do hotel uma unidade de referência incontornável", lê-se no comunicado enviado pela petrolífera.

Sem qualquer menção ao montante já investido pela petrolífera nacional no projecto, a nota da Sonangol indica apenas que a petrolífera impulsionou a sua construção, acrescentando que as obras poderão ser concluídas este ano.

Descrito com uma das maiores e mais imponentes unidades hoteleiras do país, o Intercontinental - Hotel & Casino consta do último Relatório e Contas da Sonangol, referente a 2016, na rubrica "Investimentos em Imóveis em Curso", com o montante de 74.675 milhões de Kwanzas.

Nesse documento, a petrolífera referia que estavam em curso "a revisão do modelo de rentabilização" do activo imobiliário, com o Grupo a perspectivar "termos e condições contratuais que salvaguardem o retorno e recuperabilidade total do investimento".

Angolan reforms bolster tourism and hospitality
Yesterday

Angola is addressing tourism and hospitality.



The Angolan government is putting strong measures in place to bolster the country’s tourism and hospitality industries.

“Higher oil prices and sounder policies under President Joao Lourenco should bring greater stability to Africa’s second largest crude exporter, strengthening the country’s institutions and attracting foreign investment that will spur economic growth and contribute to the diversification of the economy, including sectors such as tourism and hospitality,” says Wayne Troughton of specialist hospitality and real estate consultancy firm, HTI Consulting.

The Angolan economy suffered a setback when the oil price crashed in 2014 – and decreasing oil prices in 2016 saw negative GDP of -0.7%. However, the new government’s Macroeconomic Stabilisation Programme, along with a resurgence in the oil price currently trading above $70 a barrel, has brought a renewed energy to Angola, says Troughton. “Ultimately, a restored economic environment will have a positive impact on the country’s tourism and hospitality markets. A series of measures are currently expediting the issuance of tourist and business visas, a historically difficult process that has long been a major complaint from international companies and should help to ease business travel.”

In addition to this, construction on the new Luanda International Airport has recommenced, following delays to its original opening scheduled for 2015/2016. The airport is forecast to open in 2020, and projected to increase Luanda's overall capacity from 3.6 million to 15 million passengers per annum.

The Sonangol Hotel project is also back on track after a two-year shutdown. The 377-room, 24-storey hotel in Luanda is set to be one of the largest and most impressive hotel units in the country, and is due to see works completed this year. Park Inn by Radisson Lagos Apapais is also set to open later this year, and according to local Angolan newspaper, Valor Econômico, there may be a return by AccorHotels to the country. “We believe in the long-term potential in the countries that we operate in, and within the context of Angola, we look forward to developing our operations there in the future and providing our management expertise across a range of brands,” said Alka Winter, Vice President of Global Communications AccorHotels Middle East and Africa – but didn’t go into specific details.

In addition to this, the Angolan government announced in August that an investment of $20 million was being allocated to construct a local hospitality training institute – the Luanda Hotel School – in a bid to boost the country’s tourism industry. “The $20 million project, which is a both a working hotel and a hospitality school, is expected to open within 12 months and will have a capacity for 500 students will have 50 rooms, 12 classrooms and accommodation for 96 students,” said Minister for Hotels and Tourism, Pedro Mutindi.

Furthermore, a new Operational Plan for Tourism 2018/2022 is set to help leverage tourism in the economy. According to the minister, “it is essential to improve basic services, such as access roads and inspection of tourist sites, in order to safeguard their facilities, as well as training human resources to allow Angola to reach world standards in the tourism sector”.

PR manda acelerar obras do novo hotel cinco estrelas de Luanda

O Presidente da República, João Lourenço, criou uma comissão Interministerial com o objectivo de acompanhar e imprimir maior celeridade na finalização dos trabalhos de empreitada no hotel situado no Eixo-Viário.

A comissão será coordenada pelo ministro dos Recursos Minerais e Petróleos, que será coadjuvado pela ministra do Turismo. Integram ainda a comissão a ministra das Finanças, o ministro das Relações Exteriores, ministro do Interior, o governador provincial de Luanda e o PCA da Sonangol.

Segundo o Decreto Presidencial nº 233/19 de 24 de Dezembro, o Executivo considera o novo hotel de luxo uma mais-valia para o sector da hotelaria e turismo na arrecadação de receitas para o Estado e aumento do emprego, podendo, consequentemente, albergar, entre outros eventos nacionais e internacionais, a realização da Conferência da Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa(CPLP), agendada para Agosto deste ano.

“Tendo em conta que as obras do hotel estão a um ritmo que não satisfaz o plano de actividades que o Executivo definiu para o cumprimento da meta de 2018-2022, o Presidente da República determina (...) é criada a Comissão Interministerial com o objectivo de acompanhar e imprimir maior celeridade na finalização dos trabalhos de empreitada no hotel sito no Eixo-Viário”, diz o Despacho do PR publicado em Diário da República em clima de festa natalícia.

A conclusão das obras do novo hotel de luxo de Luanda estava prevista para 2018, mas as obras estiveram paradas durante dois anos antes da visita do ex-PCA da Sonangol, Carlos Saturnino, que garantiu a retomada das obras. Um ano depois, o PR diz que as obras estão a decorrer, mas a um ritmo lento.

O Intercontinental-Hotel e Casino, é descrito pela Sonangol como uma das maiores e melhores unidades hoteleiras do País, orçado em 74,6 mil milhões Kz, conforme consta no relatório e contas da petrolífera nacional referente a 2016.
