Mbabane - International hotel group Hilton Worldwide has signed a deal with the Swaziland Public Service Pensions Fund to build a new 130-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel in the Swazi capital, the hotel group said on Tuesday.
Hilton Worldwide, the world’s fastest-growing hospitality company, announced the deal on Monday.
“It is always exciting to have an opportunity to bring our brands into a country for the first time, and we are delighted to be introducing Hilton Garden Inn to Swaziland,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development, Europe and Africa, for Hilton Worldwide. The portfolio, he said, was fast approaching 20 000 rooms in Africa, which translated into growth for the hotel group on the continent.
The new hotel would feature 245 square meters of dedicated event space with 105 square meters of pre-function space, as well as a large fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool.
