Located in MNF Square complex in Dar Es Salaam’s Central Business District, the new hotel

features 253 spacious rooms, suites, and serviced apartments, and will set new standards in hospitality in the region

Following a two-year closure, Johari Rotana has reopened its doors to guests in Tanzania. As travel restrictions are lifting globally, the number of international tourist arrivals in Tanzania has gradually been increasing, thus positively influencing the hospitality sector. With so much optimism in light of the world reopening and tourism regaining momentum across regions, the property is set to take off – right in time for one of the busiest safari seasons in the country's Serengeti National Park.


Joerg Potreck, General Manager of Johari Rotana, said: “Our reopening could not have been at a better time with Tanzania named Africa’s Leading Destination in 2021 and the influx of tourists in the country. It’s an exciting time for us all, and my team and I are all geared up to welcome our guests back to Johari Rotana.”


Conveniently located in the MNF Square complex in Dar Es Salaam’s Central Business District, the spectacular property offers 253 keys, including 193 hotel rooms with an average size of over 50 square metres, suites ranging up to 150 square metres and 60 fully furnished and serviced apartments. Providing fantastic views of Dar Es Salaam Harbour and the city, the rooms, suites, and apartments are spread across 15 floors, starting from the 13th floor of the 65,000-square-metre mixed-use project.


“Setting new standards in architecture, design, technology, offerings and service excellence, Johari Rotana, our first property in East Africa, heralds a new hospitality experience in the region. We are confident that our spacious rooms and suites, wide selection of food and beverage venues, advanced meeting and conference facilities – including Tanzania’s largest ballroom – and unsurpassed wellness and recreation facilities will appeal to our guests and provide a competitive advantage in the market,” continued Potreck.


Offering diverse dining experiences, Johari Rotana features four stylish dining venues, including the lobby lounge Kibo, an all-day dining restaurant Zafarani, an upscale Chinese restaurant Noble House and the signature Hamilton’s Gastropub.


The hotel also boasts the largest meeting and conference facility in Tanzania, a 900-square-metre ballroom with a 6.5-metre ceiling height that can also be divided into three smaller venues. The property also features six additional meeting rooms with captivating views of the waterfront a dedicated business centre, Class-A offices and an indoor parking facility, making it an ideal choice for both business and leisure guests.
