IHG debuts voco in Africa


InterContinental Hotels Group has signed voco The Bank, Rosebank in South Africa in partnership with Valor Hospitality Partners Africa.

Last year, IHG announced the signing of a Master Development Agreement (MDA) with Valor Hospitality Partners Africa to roll out multiple franchise hotels over the next 10 years, across IHG’s portfolio of brands in midscale, upscale and luxury segments. This is the first signing under the MDA and adds to IHG’s growing pipeline in the Middle East and Africa whilst strengthens the growth of company’s new upscale brand, voco in the region.

A new built property, voco The Bank, Rosebank, will open its doors to guests this year and feature 131 well-designed rooms; an expansive dining facility which will include a two-level restaurant, a lounge and bar; and three meeting rooms, accommodating approximately 80 people.

The hotel will provide easy access to all key business districts and directly links into the Rosebank Mall and pedestrian precinct, and is located 19km from the city airport.
