Hilton Returns to Morocco’s Rabat

Hilton has signed a deal with Wessal Capital, a Moroccan investment fund which finances tourism and real estate projects, for an investment into the 150-room Hilton Rabat, to form part of the city’s Wessal Bouregreg project.

The Wessal Bouregreg master development contains a range of high-end residential, entertainment and cultural attractions on the banks of the river Bouregreg. Under the management agreement, Hilton is anticipated to once again welcome guests to the Moroccan capital city of Rabat from 2022.

Guests at Hilton Rabat will enjoy its close proximity to a range of new state-of-the-art facilities including a shopping mall, Zaha Hadid-designed Grand Theatre of Rabat and several new cultural components. The hotel itself will offer a range of food and beverage outlets, an outdoor swimming pool, spa, salon and ample meeting space.

“Wessal Bouregreg is set to install Rabat as the cultural and entertainment centre of the region and drive significant demand for upscale international accommodation,” explained Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Hilton.

Hilton’s Morocco presence is growing after recently opening two Tangier-based hotels, with a further three under construction in Al Houara, Taghazout Bay and Casablanca.
