Hilton has announced the signing of an agreement with Star Hill Tanger SA to open the Waldorf Astoria Tanger. It will be the first Waldorf Astoria brand to open in Morocco.

Expected to open in 2025, the luxury resort will be located close to the northwest coast of the country.

Waldorf Astoria Tanger will feature 115 guest rooms and suites, including 21 villas with private pools and a 1,250 sqm Royal Villa.

Also, the resort’s 3,000 sqm luxury spa is expected to be the largest holistic wellness destination in Morocco.

There will be five restaurants on the new property, including Waldorf Astoria’s signature Peacock Alley brand. Also available in the new resort will be multi-functional meeting spaces and boardrooms to host business gatherings and events.

“Across Morocco we are growing our portfolio of hotels, building on the significant momentum the country is experiencing for travel and tourism, with plans to nearly triple our presence in the coming years with openings from across our brand segments,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton.

At present, Hilton operates four hotels in Morocco: Hilton Tanger City Center Hotel and Residences, Hilton Tanger Al Houara Resort and Spa, Hilton Garden Inn Tanger City Centre, and its most recent opening, Hilton Garden Inn Casablanca Sud.

With seven hotels under development across the country, Hilton expects to open Conrad Rabat Arzana and Hilton Taghazout Bay Beach Resort and Spa later in 2022.
