Dubai-based hotel management company Aleph Hospitality has signed management contracts for three hotels in Kenya.

The hotels are Boma Nairobi, Boma Inn Nairobi and Boma Inn Eldoret, which are owned by Red Court Hotel, a subsidiary of Kenya Red Cross Society.

As part of the agreement, Aleph Hospitality has pledged financial support to Kenya Red Cross by donating a percentage of fees it earns from the hotels to local charitable initiatives.

“We are delighted to take over the management of the three Boma hotels in a deal that further strengthens our presence in Kenya,” said Bani Haddad, founder and managing director of Aleph Hospitality.

“We are committed to working with the owners to turn around the fortunes of these wonderful hotels and proud to support local humanitarian projects being run by the owner through the Kenya Red Cross”.

Boma Nairobi features 148 rooms and suites, a conference hall, boardroom, two food and beverage outlets, a gym, spa and swimming pool.

The Boma Inn Nairobi is a three-star hotel situated at the Kenya Red Cross complex.

Also in close proximity to both of the city’s airports, the hotel has 58 rooms, an all-day-dining restaurant and lounge.

Meanwhile, the Boma Inn Eldoret marks Aleph Hospitality’s first property in the Rift Valley region.

The hotel offers 68 rooms and suites, food and beverage outlets, meetings facilities, a gym, spa and swimming pool.

“We are thrilled to be working with a professional hotel management company that understands both the global hotel business and our local hospitality market,” said Abbas Gullet, the chair of Red Court Hotel and former Secretary General of Kenya Red Cross.

Aleph also operates the Best Western Plus Westlands in Nairobi and has been awarded the management contract for a Protea by Marriott hotel in Kisumu, as well as a business hotel to be located in Mombasa.
