Hilton Praia is located on the Island of Santiago in Cape Verde’s capital city, Praia. This is where all the main Government offices are located. As a successful emerging economy and a democratic nation, Cape Verde plays host to a variety of dignitaries, foreign ministers, leaders and VIP guests. Therefore, it requires high quality business accommodation and we are delivering a Hilton hotel to meet this demand.
The Hilton Praia project will create a luxurious business hotel of 201 guest rooms and suites across 15 floors along with extensive meeting and event facilities. Built near the city’s diplomatic quarters, governmental institutions, commercial, finance and residential areas, the new Hilton Hotel will be both a relaxing and convenient place for all visitor types. Nelson Mandela International Airport (RAI) and the Port of Praia, one of the principal ports of Cape Verde, will be located just six kilometres from Hilton Praia.
This development represent The Resort Group PLC’s first commercial hotel targeting visitors to the capital. Full planning was completed and groundbreaking took place on 12 November 2015, with opening anticipated in May 2019 at an expected construction of €41 million.
The Resort Group PLC has signed a 20-year management agreement with Hilton Worldwide to manage the hotel, once operational.
