Africa's first Curio Hotel will be in Nigeria

The Legend Hotel

Lagos-based Quits Hospitality has signed a deal with Hilton Worldwide to open the company's first property under the Curio brand in Africa. The new-build Legend Hotel, owned by Quits director Sam Iwuajoku, is expected to open in mid-2016, and will be located at Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Nigeria.
 
The Legend Hotel, which will be located within the airport boundaries and close to the international terminal, will have 54 guest rooms, including eight suites.  The hotel will also have exclusive facilities for private jet and corporate jet passengers of ExecuJet, who will have same-building access to the arrivals and departures services of this private aviation company.

Curio now has more than 80 properties open or in various stages of development, including Germany, the U.S., Jamaica and Argentina. “Our growth strategy across the continent continues at a fast pace, with more than 50 percent of our development pipeline currently under construction,” Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development Europe, Middle East & Africa for Hilton Worldwide, said in a statement.
