Hilton has signed an agreement to open the Hilton N’Djamena Toumai Palace in Chad in “late 2022”.

The hotel group has partnered with Wotf Turizm Ticket Anonim Sirket to open a property in the second district of N’Djamena, which will be part of the International Business Centre and 600 metres from N’Djamena International airport.

Hilton N’Djamena Toumaï Palace will feature 230 guest rooms, including 19 extended-stay suites and a presidential suite. There will be several dining venues, including a speciality restaurant, a sky bar, lobby bar and lounge.

Business facilities will include an executive lounge with a private meeting room, six individual meetings rooms and a banquet hall. On the leisure side, there will be an outdoor pool and upscale fitness facilities.

Andrew McLachlan, managing director, development, Sub-Saharan Africa at Hilton, said:

“It’s a proud moment for us to be returning to Chad with a flagship Hilton property in a prime location in the country’s commercial hub. This area of N’Djamena is well known to visitors and once open, the new Hilton will provide best-in-class facilities and renowned Hilton hospitality. We are focused on growing our portfolio in locations across the Continent with N’djamena being an important destination for travellers to north-central African country.”

Hilton has over 100 hotels operating or in the pipeline in destinations across Africa, including properties under its Hilton Hotels and Resorts brand in Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Yaounde and Johannesburg.

The hotel group opened the luxury Mango House Seychelles, LXR Hotels and Resorts, last year and also added properties to its pipeline including the Waldorf Astoria Platte Island and Canopy by Hilton Mahe in the Seychelles.
