New hotel in Arusha ready for Sullivan Summit

A new international hotel has been officially opened last weekend in Arusha ready to host participants in the forthcoming Leon H. Sullivan Summit VIII in June.

Called the Naura Springs Hotel, it has 121 rooms and has been built through a loan of Sh3 billion from the African Development Bank (AfDB).

The hotel’s opening will be a great boost to solving accommodation problems for over 3000 participants of the summit. The summit, to bring together international figures, will be graced by President Jakaya Kikwete.

Apart from the 121 rooms, the hotel also has four conference rooms for 400 delegates. Already it has employed 70 people and hopes to employ up to 150 at its full capacity.

The Tanzanian owner of Naura Springs, Mr Mrema, is also the owner of the (old) Impala Hotel and the (recent) Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge. Each has a capacity to host 200 occupants at a time.

Those who prefer more intimate luxury accommodation outside the busy towncentre can contact for more information on Onsea House, just 7 minutes drive from the Arusha International Conference Centre (AICC) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR).
