(Business in Cameroon) - Next week, the construction of a 3-star hotel for the ONOMO brand will be officially launched in Cameroon. Unlike what Philippe Colleu, founder of Onomo International said at the economic forum held in Paris on January 31, 2013, this hotel will be built in Douala, not in Kribi.
The construction works will be handled by the South African group Raubex which is currently in charge of the Douala Grand Mall & Business Park’s construction.
Let’s note that the characteristics of this hotel have not been disclosed but, in 2013, the group announced that it would be a 120 room hotel.
For the record, on November 21, 2017, Onomo group announced that it has secured €106 million (CFA69.4 billion) from CDC Group plc and CIC Capital. In the official statement, it published in that regard, the group informed that thanks to this fund, it would build 10 new business hotels offering quality services at an affordable cost in countries such as Cameroon, Congo, Uganda, Mozambique and Ethiopia.
Let's remind that currently, the group has 10 hotels (a total of 1,400 rooms) in Dakar, Abidjan, Libreville, Bamako, Lomé, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Conakry and Kigali.
