Doha: Katara Hospitality, a leading global hotel owner, developer, and operator based in Qatar strengthens its partnership with Accor, the world's most diverse hospitality group with over 425 hotels across India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, with the opening of the new Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier in the Northern region of Morocco.
Set to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, the new luxury hotel will consolidate the long-standing partnership between the two groups, with Katara Hospitality already owning several landmark hotels managed by Accor. The historical palace will feature 133 luxurious rooms and suites, a Fairmont Spa, multiple restaurants and bars, as well as modern conference and banquet spaces.
Chairman of Katara Hospitality, Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari said:“Our investment in restoring Tazi Palace in Tangier aligns with Katara Hospitality's strategic plans for international expansion, being our second venture in North Africa.”
He added,“By committing to this agreement, our primary goal is to support the development of the local community, while sharing our expertise in the hospitality field and investing into creating a strong partnership and lasting value. Today, it gives us great pleasure to share our Moroccan flagship property with Accor.”
Acting CEO of Katara Hospitality, Andrew Humphries commented:“We are confident the ethos of the Fairmont brand is a strategic fit as it is important that we have an operator which understands and respects the heritage of this wonderful hotel, ensuring it occupies its rightful position in the local and global market-places when it opens later this year.”
“With its deep history blended with contemporary Moroccan architecture, the Tazi Palace will become a true hospitality icon that represents both a proud legacy and an exciting future. The resort will emerge as a relaxing urban escape that is a true celebration of rich Moroccan culture and history,” he added.
Located in the city of Tangier in the North of Morocco, the property enjoys an enviable location at the heart of the upscale residential Boubana area, offering guests convenient proximity to the main attractions of the city: ten minutes away from the city centre and the Corniche, and only 20 minutes from the airport.
“Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier is a wonderful addition to our luxury portfolio in Morocco,” said Sébastien Bazin, Accor Chairman and CEO.“We are proud and happy to partner, once again, with Katara Hospitality on another wonderful project. We couldn't think of a better brand than Fairmont to introduce the Palace to our guests, with the promise of an unforgettable experience in this extraordinary location.”
Nestled in the heart of the city and in one of its most exclusive locations, Fairmont Tazi Palace is perfectly set on a forested hill offering unparalleled views of Tangier.
