Hilton to open first Hilton Garden Inn in South Africa

South Africa will soon be welcoming its first Hilton Garden Inn Umhlanga Arch in Umhlanga, Durban. This comes after Hilton and UA Hotel signed a management agreement to open the Hilton Garden Inn Umhlanga Arch in Umhlanga.

 The new 207 guestroom hotel will be part of Umhlanga Arch, a significant mixed use development under construction in Umhlanga’s Ridgeside precinct. The hotel will be situated within easy access to King Shaka International Airport, La Lucia Ridge, Durban and the Gateway Theatre of Shopping.

According to Tourism Update Patrick Fitzgibbon, Hilton Senior Vice President for EMEA, said in a statement Umhlanga was a terrific location in which to launch Hilton Garden Inn in South Africa, as it was a popular upmarket commercial and leisure destination.

The hotel will offer its own business and fitness centres, outdoor pool and various food and beverage outlets, including a garden and lounge bar. The hotel is set to open in 2020.  To book your next business travel to Umhlanga contact your Corporate Traveller Travel Expert today.
