December 2018 1910

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Smart Properties, an affiliate of one of Pakistan’s leading real estate developers, Future Development Holdings (FDH), to operate Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Capital Smart City, Islamabad, which is expected to open in 2023.

Islamabad Capital Smart City is a mixed-used mega development featuring residential, retail, commercial, entertainment and hospitality components that’s just five minutes by car from Islamabad’s new international airport and located on the main road connecting Pakistan’s capital with its second most populous city, Lahore, home to almost 12 million people.

“With this new dynamic development set to become the hub for modern commercial activities and major local and international organisations, our newly-signed upscale property will be well positioned to cater to their needs, from short- to long-term accommodation options, complemented by attractive business and leisure facilities,” explained Andrew Langdon, global chief development officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Capital Smart City, Islamabad, the hotel group’s second property planned for the city, will feature 250 hotel rooms and 150 serviced apartments, four dining venues, meeting facilities, a fitness centre and two swimming pools.

“A landmark development such as Islamabad Capital Smart City, which will become a new economic powerhouse for Pakistan, calls for high-quality accommodation and hospitality offerings, which is why we have partnered with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts – a hotel group with strong market knowledge and a proven track record operating upscale properties across the region,” said Luis Fernandez-Reyes, chief development officer, Smart Properties.

Mövenpick currently operates Mövenpick Hotel Karachi and has two more hotels in active development in Pakistan. They include Mövenpick Hotel Centaurus Islamabad, set to open in 2019, and Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments Lahore, set for completion in 2021.
