Mövenpick undertakes $29.8m upgrades at key properties<!-- -->


Swiss hotel group Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is undertaking renovation and extension work at several of its properties this summer.

Mövenpick and the hotel owners will invest more than 45 million Swiss francs ($29.8 million) on the upgrades.

The group has just opened the five-star Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Beirut and the Mövenpick Cairo Media City. It has recently signed contracts for projects in Dubai and the takeover of a hotel in Jeddah.

"Along with the significant number of new Mövenpick hotels that are opening their doors, we are applying a policy of constant upgrading to our long-established hotels," said Mövenpick president and CEO Jean Gabriel Pérès.

Upgrades are underway at the Mövenpick Hotel Zurich-Airport and the Mövenpick Hotel and Conference Centre Egerkingen.

Both the properties are refurbishing and redesigning their banquet and seminar rooms.

The Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne is renovating 120 rooms and the Mövenpick restaurant while the Mövenpick Hotel Geneva will give a makeover to two floors with a total of 60 rooms.

Renovations are also being undertaken at several other European properties. The Mövenpick Resort El Quseir by the Red Sea has added an extension including 72 rooms, a new grill restaurant and three new swimming pools.

The Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea in Jordan has also been augmented 130 new rooms, of which 24 is in cabana style, another pool area, new conference rooms as well as an additional restaurant.
