Dubai-based independent hotel management company Aleph Hospitality has entered the Tanzanian market with the signing of management agreements for two boutique resorts in Zanzibar: the Moja Tuu and Hakuna Majiwe.

The new management contracts are scheduled to take effect in October, at which time the company’s portfolio will cover five countries on the continent. The deal also follows news that the company will manage the first Marriott International property in Kisumu, Kenya.

Located in Kiwengwa, on the northeast coast of Zanzibar and a 60-minute drive from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, Moja Tuu is a 35-room upper-upscale beach resort that includes 10 beachfront villas, each with a private infinity pool. The hotel also has three restaurants, a private beach and a swimming pool.
