November 7, 2022

Leva Hotels, a top lifestyle hotel brand, has partnered with Afro-Tsion Construction to launch the 4-star Leva Afrotsion Semera Resort in Ethiopia, which will serve as the brand’s flagship hotel in East Africa and the sixth property in its portfolio.

The resort will undergo renovation by the end of this year to create an atmosphere that embodies Leva’s dynamic and innovative brand lifestyle, which includes cutting-edge technologies, stylish design, and engaging guest experiences.

Leva Afrotsion Semera Resort will be the only upscale resort in the area and aims to be a hub for business travellers, tourists and locals alike. Conveniently located near the airport, the property includes four restaurants, two bars, two 400-person banquet halls, many shops and an open-air terrace.

Accommodation options include Presidential Suites and villas, and all guests have access to a spa, tennis courts, swimming pools, a fully equipped gym, and a children’s playground.

J S Anand, Founder and CEO of Leva Hotels & Resorts, said: “With the tourism industry rapidly developing in East Africa, Leva has set its sights on expanding into top-tier markets in key locales. The Leva Afrotsion Semera Resort is the only 4-star resort at this scale in the country, so we are excited for what the future holds. We are also working on incorporating the advanced technologies we use at our flagship hotel in Dubai to support sustainability and ensure positive guest experiences.”

Afro-Tsion Construction, owner of the 4-star resort has played a significant role in the completion of large infrastructure projects such as this one in the past, along with other complex buildings and public roadways.

Gudeta Gelalcha, CEO of Afro-Tsion Construction, said: “This is an exciting time for both Afro-Tsion and Leva. We are changing the tourism experience in Ethiopia and we look forward to welcoming our first guests when the Leva Afrotsion Semera Resort opens its door.”

Ethiopia will emerge as a prominent player in East Africa’s tourism and development sectors, bringing opportunities for new brands to invest and grow. The country continues to be a gateway to Africa with Addis Ababa being the seat of the African Union Commission and the home of The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, in addition to being the undisputed diplomatic capital of Africa, as it ranks third globally.
