Hilton has signed an agreement with Star Hill Tanger SA to open Waldorf Astoria Tanger, marking Waldorf Astoria’s debut in Morocco.
As part of a recent signing ceremony for the property, Zaid Ali from Star Hill Tanger commented: “Signing this agreement with Hilton represents our ambition to partner with renowned global hospitality partners that provide world-class service standards, on par with our company’s value of excellence. Bringing the luxurious Waldorf Astoria brand to Tanger is a step we are proud of because it supports the development of the tourism sector in Morocco and the city of Tanger.”
“Introducing Waldorf Astoria to Morocco in partnership with Star Hill is an exciting move for Hilton, and we are pleased to debut this iconic brand in Tanger, a stylish destination that is witnessing rapid development. Across Morocco we are growing our portfolio of hotels, building on the significant momentum the country is experiencing for travel and tourism, with plans to nearly triple our presence in the coming years with openings from across our brand segments,” added Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton.
Located near the Cape Spartel Reserve, the highly anticipated Waldorf Astoria Tanger, which is expected to open in 2025, will bring unrivaled luxury and elegant service to the Moroccan coast. The resort features 115 contemporary-style guest rooms and suites, including 21 villas with private pools and a 1,250-square-meter Royal Villa. In addition, the resort’s 3,000-square-meter luxury spa is anticipated to be the largest holistic wellness destination in the country. Surrounded by lush greenery, Waldorf Astoria Tanger will be the preeminent luxury destination in Tanger. Guests will enjoy an array of culinary delights at the resort’s five distinctive restaurants, including the world-famous Peacock Alley, synonymous with the Waldorf Astoria brand. The luxury resort will also feature multifunctional meeting spaces and boardrooms, perfect for hosting business gatherings, celebrations and world-class events.
With seven hotels under development in locations across the country, Hilton expects to open Conrad Rabat Arzana and Hilton Taghazout Bay Beach Resort & Spa later in 2022.
