Golden Tulip next entrant into the Kampala hospitality market?


(Posted 20th March 2017)


With a market presence across Eastern Africa already established – Golden Tulip now manages properties in Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda – has speculation grown over the anticipated opening of a hotel in Kampala.
Hospitality sources have indicated that recruitment of key personnel is apparently underway in Kampala and while the company has not gone on record or released any statements to the effect of opening a hotel in the Ugandan capital can this not be ruled out given the efforts made by recruiters trying to tap into the HR pools of other leading hotels in the city.
Golden Tulip, now part of Louvre Hotels with its three brands of Golden Tulip, Royal Tulip and Tulip Inn – initially formed in Holland – has through the recent acquisition by Louvre of Sarovar of India become a global player with now 1.170 hotels and over 91.000 rooms in 51 countries. Additional brands under the group are such names as Première Classe, Campanile and Kyriad. The principal owner of Louvre Hotels is China’s Jin Jiang International, one of that country’s leading travel and hospitality multinationals.
A General Manager for the Kampala property has reportedly already been put into place and more details, as and when available, will be published here.
