Date: April 2019

Location: Houari Boumediene Airport, Algiers, Algeria

Name: The Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport

No. of Keys: 320

Buyer/Developer: Hyatt Hotels Corporation has opened the first Hyatt hotel in Algeria.

The Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport is operated under a management agreement with Société d’Investissement Hôtelière EPE SPA.

Société d’Investissement Hôtelière EPE SPA is a company whose shareholders are amongst the most important financial and industrial institutions in Algeria.

Since its creation in 1997, the company has developed numerous internationally branded hotels throughout the country.

The company’s track record further includes the “Centre International Des Conférences,” the “Ecole Supérieure d’Hôtellerie et de Restauration” in collaboration with Lausanne Hotel School, and several residential projects.

This new hotel joins Hyatt’s existing seven properties in Africa: the Hyatt Place Taghazout Bay and Hyatt Regency Casablanca in Morocco, Park Hyatt Zanzibar and Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, Hyatt Regency Johannesburg in South Africa and the recently opened Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

Located at Houari Boumediene Airport in Algiers, the 320-room hotel is close to the newest terminal and is the only hotel linked to the terminal.

Pascal Leprou, the hotel’s general manager, noted that Algeria is a growing commercial hub for Africa. “We anticipate a strong reception of the property from both the region as well as international travellers,” he said.

Public spaces at the hotel include dedicated airline lounges, a Regency Club lounge, three dining venues, a swimming pool and a 23,680-square-foot lobby. For business functions, the hotel has more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space across 13 dedicated rooms.
