Corinthia Bab Africa spells true class


THE fabulous Corinthia Bab Africa, which soars 28 storeys high above Tripoli’s waterfront skyline, takes pride of place as Libya’s first and only five-star hotel.

This stunning twin-tower property is also testament to the rapid growth of the Corinthia Group as an international brand and is helping drive the group’s growth in the country.
The hotel, which is located in the heart of Tripoli’s central business district adjacent to the old fortifications of the city, boasts a total of 300 five-star rooms and suites with splendid views overlooking the Mediterranean.
Hardly surprising then that, like its sister property, the world famous Corinthia Palace in Malta, it has become another jewel in the crown of this dynamic hospitality group.
The Maltese-headquartered Corinthia is rightly proud of its Mediterranean traditions and now has 20 four- and five-star city and resort hotels in key locations across Europe and Africa.
The Corinthia Bab Africa is a masterpiece that sets new standards of excellence on the African Continent by way of its spectacular architecture, luxurious interior design and superior services.
It boasts a separate commercial centre, spa and extensive banqueting and conference facilities and since its launch in 2003, has quickly become the preferred venue for international and Libyan visitors.
The hotel has established a reputation in Tripoli and overseas as the property of choice for Corinthia’s dynamic and welcoming approach to business. In the hotel’s palatial lobby one can meet holidaymakers ready to take excursions to the stunning Roman ruins of Lepcis Magna as well as the international business traveller, who is increasingly present in Libya by the day.
Corinthia first started its Libyan operations in 1977 with a catering contract and over the last decade has accelerated its spectacular growth that culminated in the opening of the Corinthia Bab Africa.
As attention to detail is everything for Corinthia Hotels, the quality of the finished products and services are essential and the development of new property in Libya was no exception.
Corinthia Bab Africa has already started attracting lots of repeat clients as it has found the right balance between intimacy and  business needs whilst constantly refining and raising the hotel’s service standards.
Since its launch the hotel has welcomed several dignitaries, including the Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Defence Minister General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chancellor Gerhard Schroder of Germany and President Hosni Mubarrak of Egypt.
