The UAE-based hospitality brand LEVA Hotels has announced two visionary projects in Zimbabwe as part of its expansion drive. This ambitious project, scheduled for completion within two years, is a collaborative effort with Troika Design Workshop (TDW), a leading consulting firm specializing in architecture, quantity surveying, and engineering, and Turnbury Property Developers (TPD), an esteemed real estate development company dedicated to community shaping. While TDW and TPD spearhead the property development, LEVA will manage the 120-unit residential complex, LEVA Hotel Residences, and a four-star LEVA hotel with 180 rooms in the Mount Pleasant suburb.
“We are thrilled to announce our expansion into Zimbabwe, a country with immense potential for the hospitality industry,” said J.S. Anand, Founder and CEO of LEVA Hotels and Resorts. “Our two greenfield projects in Harare will offer guests a unique and memorable experience, and we are confident that they will be a valuable addition to the Zimbabwean hospitality landscape.”
The strategic partnership with Troika Design Workshop (TDW) and Turnbury Property Developers aligns seamlessly with LEVA's long-term vision of fostering growth and supporting/boosting local businesses and talents within the region. This collaboration is characterized by shared values, a commitment to excellence, and a unified vision for sustainable development, serving as the cornerstone for LEVA Hotels' involvement in these greenfield projects.
Sustainable Hospitality to Attract Modern Travelers to Zimbabwe
Unlike many other African countries, Zimbabwe boasts of a world-class tourism infrastructure and has some of the most luxurious hotels and lodges in the Southern African region. LEVA Hotels is well-positioned to capitalize on Zimbabwe's growing tourism demand. The four-star 180-room hotel and the 120-unit LEVA Hotel Residences at Mount Pleasant will incorporate LEVA Hotels’ key brand design elements, brought to life by TDW's innovative approach in architecture and engineering, coupled with Turnbury's expertise in real estate development. Set to launch within two years, the property is set to offer a fresh, vibrant, and innovative service in the country.
