Three Cities Group is delighted to be expanding its reputed management and marketing services into East Africa, with the recent acquisition of the Zanzibar Beach Resort in one of East Africa’s largest countries and the Kunduchi Beach Hotel and Resort in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Three Cities Group Managing Director, John Creighton said that the quality of Three Cities operational standards and services are well known in Southern Africa. The management and marketing ability of the Group were the reasons why hotels in Tanzania and Zanzibar chose the Three Cities Group over other Hotel operators.

“We are very excited to add both these hotels into our portfolio and to be expanding our footprint into East Africa. We intend to expand further into Tanzania and further across the region. This brings to date, four other African countries outside of South Africa that the Three Cities Group HH250x250-3operates in”.

“We understand the expectation of service and quality that local and international travellers expect from our establishments within Southern Africa. The same applies for the continent and it is only natural that we extend our service credibility and the Three Cities Group’s vision to be recognised as Africa’s leading hospitality brand of choice,” said Creighton

Creighton further explained that with the recent appointment of three Goodwill Ambassadors to promote tourism to Tanzania in the United States, he was keen on the Group taking pride and centre in its offerings to international visitors.

“According to Tanzania’s Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism, Honourable Ambassador Khamis S. Kagasheki, MP, tourism is the leading earner of Foreign Exchange in Tanzania, and the United States is Tanzania’s most significant tourist generating market. As a Group, we intend on aligning our services and properties to accommodate this growing market in the land of Kilimanjaro; Zanzibar and the Serengeti. ”
