Local hotel group PrideInn has signed an agreement to manage the third hotel owned by Azure Hospitality Group at Signature Mall along Mombasa Expressway named PrideInn Plaza.

The hotel chain will now manage PrideInn Plaza with 64 luxury rooms and suites, nine conference rooms, a restaurant, lounge and sky-view bar.

As part of the deal, PrideInn will manage the hotels for Azure Hospitality Group, with the latter guaranteeing monthly revenue that varies based on monthly sales.

The hotel chain took over the Pride Inn Azure hotel in 2020 and Azure Mara Haven this year, which it renamed PrideInn Mara Camp.

“Under the proposal, PrideInn steps in as a management company to operate the hotel on your behalf using our own company. It’s very similar to a rental model, except monthly rental amounts vary by based on the percentage of total revenue generated by the hotel determined using Global Hotel software,” said Hasnain Noorani, Founder and Managing Director of PrideInn.

PrideInn Plaza becomes the eighth hotel establishment under the PrideInn badge. Others are the flagship PrideInn Paradise Beach Resort and Spa group in Shanzu, Mombasa, PrideInn Flamingo Beach Resort also in Shanzu, Mombasa, PrideInn Mombasa City, PrideInn Nyali, PrideInn Diani, PrideInn Azure in Nairobi and the new PrideInn Mara Camp in Narok County.

The group commands more than 800 luxury rooms, operating under two brands, namely Premium Brands and Comfort Brands.

Its overall conference capacity is over 7,500 in just over a decade of operation.
