Wyndham Opens Ramada Property in Tanzania

ramada resort dar es salaamWyndham Hotel Group has come to Eastern Africa with the opening of the 139-room Ramada Resort Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. The hotel marks not only the company’s expansion into Eastern Africa, but is the first property within the greater continent to be operated via the company’s growing management division.
 
“The opening of Ramada Resort Dar es Salaam is of significant strategic importance for us,” said Dan Ruff, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean. “Given the increasing demand for quality, internationally-branded accommodations in Eastern Africa, as well as our commitment to getting closer to our guests and our customers through the expansion of our managed property division, it is a key milestone in our regional growth.”
 
“With exceptional facilities and a stunning beachfront location, Ramada Resort Dar es Salaam sets a new standard within Tanzania’s midscale segment and we look forward to extending a warm Ramada welcome to our first guests,” Ruff added.
 
Throughout the construction of the hotel, which began in 2009, emphasis has been placed on sustainability. Key initiatives include treating and reusing 100 percent of all waste water, solar-powered water heating, innovative LED lighting systems and beach protection measures to prevent erosion of the hotel’s private beach. In addition, the hotel plans to produce compost from food waste, which will be used to grow vegetables for the hotel’s restaurants in a roof top vegetable garden.
