Tanzania: Minor Hotel Group (MHG), the Thai hotel owner, operator and investor, has announced the addition of a resort on the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar.

Currently operating as Essque Zalu Zanzibar, MHG has recently taken over the management contract and the property will be rebranded as a Per AQUUM resort by the end of 2015.

MHG already operates two spas and six hotels in Tanzania.  Essque Zalu Zanzibar is owned by Maisha Ltd, under majority shareholding of Musstir, one of Oman’s leading property development and investment firms, which is part of MB Group.

The property features 40 suites and nine three and four-bedroom villas.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group, said: “This partnership represents a true meeting of minds as the Essque team shares Per AQUUM’s passion for defying expectations and delivering luxury that dares to be different.  We are already working with Musstir on an upcoming property in Salalah, Oman, under our luxury brand Anantara, so our partnership continues to go from strength to strength across multiple brands.  We have stated that our goal is to add at least five properties to Per AQUUM’s portfolio within the next five years, mirroring Minor Hotel Group’s current footprint, so this new management contract demonstrates that we are delivering on our promise to offer even more choice to our loyal guests and valued trade partners.”
