Leva Hotels & Resorts has pledged to support the hospitality industry as a whole by continuing its expansion efforts across EMEA. The group explained that it is exploring opportunities in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania and areas of Europe including Portugal.
Leva Hotels & Resorts CEO and founder JS Anand said: “Despite the challenges, it is important to focus on long-term strategies to proactively target recovery in the hospitality sector. At Leva Hotels & Resorts, we are confident that it is only a matter of time before our industry turns around, and therefore, all of us must continue to work together by prioritising our goals to prepare for a better future. We remain committed to expand our footprint in our target markets offering superior brand standards and exceptional management options to hotel owners with flexible terms tailored for diverse market segments.”
At the start of the year, Leva signed an agreement with Golden Group Holding to manage two hotels in Oman’s Muscat. The agreement signified the group’s debut into the Sultanate, seeing it reflag two existing properties and adding 146 keys to its portfolio.
As well as its expansion plans, Anand explained the group is committed to contributing to its local communities in Africa. He said: “We will invest back in the community as well as the development of people who work for us with an aim to improve lives.
