Angolan group opens hotel in Lisbon

21 April 2015

Skyna Hotels, a chain of Angolan group Socinger, is due on Thursday, 23 July to open a four-star hotel in one of the main avenues in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, the first Angolan-owned hotel in the capital, reported the Angolan press.

Alexandre Portugal, CEO of the hotel chain, explained the choice of Portugal for the start of the internationalisation process based on the “proximity between the two countries, both through a common language and the success of partnerships between Portugal and Angola in tourism and hospitality.”

Skyna Hotel Lisboa has 105 rooms, including seven suites, five master suites with private balconies and views of the city, 67 standard rooms and 26 superior rooms.

The hotel’s restaurant will focus on Portuguese cuisine as well as special events, at which it will promote Angolan cuisine.

The chain’s first hotel, Skyna Hotel Luanda, was inaugurated in Angola in 2009. (macauhub/AO/PT)
